Published

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / April 3, 2024 / Stabilis Solutions, Inc., ("Stabilis" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:SLNG), a leading provider of clean energy production, storage, and delivery solutions, today provided a business update highlighting expectations for increased, multi-year demand growth for high-purity LNG fuel from the commercial space launch market.

AEROSPACE MARKET OPPORTUNITY

  • U.S. rapidly becoming the global leader in commercial rocket launch activity. Demand for next generation connectivity and observational capabilities has contributed to a historic increase in U.S. commercial rocket launch activity. Over the last 10 years, the number of U.S. launches has increased by more than 400%, while accounting for more than 50% of total global launches in 2023. U.S. led demand for high-purity LNG continues to grow as a preferred fuel for commercial rockets, allowing for quicker turnaround of reusable boosters, improved engine efficiency and thrust, and ease of storage.
  • Stabilis is positioned to remain the largest supplier of next generation fuel to the domestic space economy. In 2024, the Company anticipates its aerospace market-related volumes will increase by more than 40% over the prior year, representing approximately 10% of its full-year sales volumes. Over the next five years, domestic demand for high-purity LNG is expected to increase by 65% to approximately 25 million gallons annually. Stabilis estimates that it is among the largest suppliers of high-purity LNG to space launch providers in the U.S., currently supplying approximately 40% of the market, with the potential to significantly increase its market share subject to future investments in liquefaction capacity.
