Fuel demand expectations in the shipping industry by fuel type 2019

According to 52 percent of respondents, liquified natural gas (LNG) will be the fuel type in greatest demand. In 2020, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) put a cap on the sulfur content of marine fuels, prompting the shipping industry to switch to cleaner fuels and equip their vessels with sulfur abatement systems. Only 17 percent of suppliers believed that marine miesel oil, another low-sulfur fuel, would be the most in-demand type, despite it being the second most popular fuel among shipping companies currently.

In your opinion, which fuels will be in greatest demand in future in the shipping industry?
