Market Analysis

Market Research Future (MRFR) presumes the global coal bed methane market to grow at a 4.05% CAGR during the forecast period.

Coal Bed Methane is an unusual type of natural gas found in coal seams. It is extracted predominantly from bituminous and sub-bituminous coals. Coal bed methane can be utilized effectively as a fertilizer, as methane is a source of ammonia that is used in half of the world's fertilizer market. During the projected period, favorable government measures promoting the use of unconventional resources would boost the coal bed methane market. Recognizing the importance of CBM, the Chinese government included the development in the Five-Year Plan, requiring the country to produce 50 billion m3 of coal bed methane. Furthermore, the Government of India has allocated 31 development blocks for the exploration and production of coal bed methane, propelling the industry forward.
