The potential in the global liquefied petroleum gas market is slated to see a significant upswing due to the expansion of the Panama Canal and increased production of shale gas in the U.S.
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/31/2017 -- Global Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Market: Overview
Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) – flammable hydrocarbon gases – include propane, butane and mixtures of these gases. It is liquefied through pressurization and is generated from natural gas processing and oil refining. It is used as a fuel in central/water heating appliances, for cooking, in vehicles, as refrigerants, aerosol propellants, and petrochemical feedstock.
Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) is also known as auto gas when it is used as a vehicle fuel. This gas is also useful in cylinders across different markets in the form of a fuel container in agriculture, hospitality, recreation, sailing, construction, fishing, and calefaction sectors.

Global Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Market: Key Trends
Majorly boosting the global market for liquid petroleum gas (LPG) is the increasing consumption of auto gas on account of rapid urbanization and population growth, particularly in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Africa. Additionally, initiatives undertaken by governments in the countries of India, China, and Indonesia to supplant conventional cooking fuels such as kerosene, coal, and wood with liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) by providing subsidies on the latter will also lead to market growth in the near future. Governments across the world are also promoting LPG as auto fuel as it emits lesser quantities of greenhouse gases.
Clipping the growth in the market is the volatility in prices of crude oil which results in uncertainty in LPG prices.
Global Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Market: Market Potential
The potential in the global liquefied petroleum gas market is slated to see a significant upswing due to the expansion of the Panama Canal and increased production of shale gas in the U.S. This would allow the large gas carriers to make their way through the canal which will most likely make exports from North America competitive with those from the Middle East. Asia Pacific too will benefit from the expansion as it will pave the way for cheap LPG imports from the U.S.

Depending upon the source, the main segments of LPG are refinery, associated gas, and non-associated gas. Among them, the non-associated gas is expected to acquire a dominant position in the near future. The main end users of liquefied natural gas are residential and commercial, petrochemical and refinery, transportation, and industrial segments, among others. Among them, the residential and commercial segment leads the market with maximum share on account of widespread use of LPG gas for cooking and for heating. Going forward, there would be substantial increase in investment in capacity expansion for the production of auto gas as fuel.
Global Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Market: Regional Outlook
Geography-wise, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, North America, and South and Central America are the key regions in the market. Among them, the Middle East produces maximum LPG, while the U.S. in North America is a net importer. The LPG production in North America, however, is expected to rise.
