Liquefied Petroleum Gas Market Overview

Liquefied Petroleum Gas, also known as autogas or propane is flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases such as propane, butane and combination of these gases. Autogas is lower carbon, clean and effective source of energy. Pressurized cylindrical containers are used for the transportation and storage of LPG. Autogas is used for wide variety of applications such as cooking, agriculture, hospitality, construction, sailing among numerous others. It is used worldwide due to its cost effectiveness, convenience and economic reasons.

However, being a form of gas, it does not pollute ground or water sources as it is utilized without ash. It is used as an alternative fuel in Light Motor Vehicles (LMV’s) and transportation vehicles as it reduces the carbon emissions in vehicles as well as stationary applications such as cooking gas and generators.

The usage of LPG in residential & commercial sectors has attributed to replacement of conventional natural resources such as coal, wood etc.

Rising awareness of estimated scarcity of natural resources, easy availability alongside budget is likely to foster the growth of liquefied petroleum gas market in near future.
