Market Insight, Drivers, Restraints, Opportunity & Trends of the Market:


Coal-Bed Methane (CBM) is popularly known as Coal-Mine Methane (CMM), and Coal Seam Gas (CGS). It is a kind of Natural gas derived from the coal beds. Now-a-days, it is gaining momentum as a significant source of energy. Owing to the dearth of hydrogen sulfide, CBM is identified as a sweet gas. CBM is found in a state close to liquid, lining the matrix of the coal. The cleats of the coal also comprise of free gas that can be saturated in association of water. CBM is not a natural-gas condensate with a very little content of propane or butane and some percentage of carbon dioxide.

Market Drivers

The transition of the preference pattern of the consumers and the adoption of non-traditional forms of power sources is fueling the growth of this market. The surging dependence on CBM reduces the pressure on national power grids in many developing countries.

Favorable norms introduced by the government of different developed and developing nations for the use of CBM as an alternative of the conventionally used power sources is propelling the growth of this market. The governments of different nations are also providing incentives for the use of methane gas.

The rising environmental concern among the people coupled with the eco-friendly nature of the CBM is providing an impetus to the further use of CBM as a source of energy.

The volatile prices of natural gases, oils and various other sources of power and energy is indulging people to look out for cheap alternative sources of power and energy. The price of CBM is moderate comparatively to the other conventional forms of natural gases and energy sources which is thrusting the growth of the coal-bed methane market.

Rapid industrialization across developed and developing nations especially in the Asia-Pacific region like India and China is charging the demand for power which in turn is driving the demand for CBM and its market.

The application of CBM is not only limited to power generation but also extended towards the production of food and has acquired popularity as a fertilizer in the world’s fertilizer market. Being used as a fertilizer because of its ammonia content, it aids food production for the constantly soaring world population. This factor is empowering the growth of the CBM market.

Market Restraints

The initial capital investment required for exploration of the availability of CBM, stimulation, water handling and drilling activities are exceptionally high and hampering this market structure.

The various other properties of CBM certifies it as a greenhouse gas and impedes the growth of this market.

Upsetting Groundwater level and the constantly reduction in the level of groundwater as a result of siphoning out coalbed waters and the introduction of additives in water is severely threatening the growth prospects in this market.


The rising demand for power for industrialization and the skyrocketing number of structuring industries coupled with the electrification of numerous rural regions of the developing economies will generate power demand and provide lucrative opportunities to this market.

The broadening of the base of exploring and drilling activities coupled with the employment in exploring and mining activities both directly and indirectly is likely to set up a good set of circumstances for this market.

The huge reserve of coal-bed methane comparatively to other power generating fossil fuels the totality of which is not yet explored will increase the supply of CBM and provide bankable opportunities to the coal-bed methane market.


The Asia-Pacific region is expected to showcase significant growth in the coal-bed methane market around an expected CAGR of 7.4% in the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the presence of large chunks and deposits od CBM that had not yet been explored and the flourishing industrialization. The constant economic development and GDP growth is assumed to fuel the Asia-Pacific Region. The growth of the Asia-Pacific region is primarily influenced by India, China, Indonesia and Australia. This region has a broad base of demand and the popping up of new companies to meet this demand is likely to raise the supply side. The North America market is also projected to show coal-bed methane market development because the innovative ideas and the expertise can not only benefit the itself but also provide global benefit.
