Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases extracted from the byproduct of crude petroleum.  The hydrocarbons gases are comprised of butane, propane, isobutene, and other mixtures of gases. These gases are stored in the liquid form in the steel container under pressure, fueling in cooking equipment, heating appliances, and vehicles. These LPG gases are being used in refrigeration systems as an aerosol propellant and a refrigerant by replacing chlorofluorocarbons, which are harmful gas to the environment.  LPG gas has similar property and calorific value as compared to petrol hence used in vehicles as fuel. 

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Market Dynamics:

The market is driven by the rising demand for increasing autogas, vehicles and the rising demand for LPG cylinders for cooking in semi-urban and rural populations. According to the World LPG Association, the global autogas consumption in 2017 was around 27 million tonnes and is projected to reach around 31 Million tonnes by 2030, with 18% higher than the 2017 year. Furthermore, the global LPG market is driven by strong governmental support for residential and commercial purposes like cooking and in the automobile industry. Stronger support from governments, vehicle manufacturers, and the LPG industry The associated social, economic, and environmental benefits are estimated at over US$54 billion, Reducing the environmental impact of road transport drastically in the face of rising demand for mobility  Demand has been growing steadily in recent years, reaching around 27 million tonnes in 2017,

There is a rise in the launch of new innovative technology implemented with liquefied petroleum gases for the automobile vehicles for reducing the cost of traveling as compared to petrol vehicles may create a huge opportunity for the growth of the LPG market. For instance, in May 2019, Bajaj Company had launched the four-wheeler vehicle quadricycle’s Qute model based on Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG).

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Market Segment Analysis

The global Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) market is segmented based on product type, application, and region.

The global Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) market is bifurcated into Associated Gas, Refinery, and Non-Associated Gas in terms of product type. Among this Refinery, the segment has the highest share in 2019 due to increasing infrastructure development to extract oils for fulfilling the global demand. As per the International Energy Agency (IEA), the global oil refinery production is expected to reach 5.9 million barrels per day due to a surge in the global population demand for commercial and residential purposes.

Similarly, the Associated Gas and Non-Associated Gas segment are also increasing at the fastest pace due to the surge in global demand for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), with a surge in the autogas vehicles raising the global population. According to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), the global population was 7.5 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach around 9.2 billion by 2040.

Further, based on the application, the global LPG market is divided into industrial, commercial, Chemical, auto fuel, and others. This commercial segment has the highest market share in 2019 as a surge in the utilization of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) with stronger government supports and subsidies to promote natural resource usage. For instance, India's Government has been subsidized the LPG cylinder during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

The Chemical auto fuel segment is expected to witness positive market growth due to the growing demand for Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) used in automobiles, chemical factories, and food processing companies. According to the International Association for Natural Gas Vehicles (IANGV), considering the European Community plans and ongoing developments in Asia, the global number of NGVs could reach 15 million by 2010 and 50 million by 2020.
