Based on the end user, the global LPG market is segmented as follows:

  •  Residential
  • Chemical
  • Industrial
  • Auto fuel
  • Refinery
  • Others (Agriculture)

The global LPG market is classified according to end-use. Among end uses, the residential segment was the most dominant segment in 2015 and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The residential segment was observed to be the largest segment in 2016 in the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) market, owing to the wide adoption of LPG as a cooking fuel. The increasing penetration of LPG as a cooking fuel in key consuming economies such as India and China is expected to drive segment growth.

According to the Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC), the total consumption of LPG was 19.6 MT in 2015. Further, in 2015, Nigeria witnessed a 100% increase in domestic consumption of LPG. The segment is anticipated to grow at a significant rate and is projected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period (2016–2024). Following it, the chemical segment was the second-largest segment in the global LPG market. LPG can be converted into ethylene, propylene, butylene, butadiene, etc., to produce synthetic plastic, synthetic fiber, synthetic rubber, explosives, dyestuff, pharmaceuticals, etc.

Given the wide array of applications in the chemical industry and growing demand for plastics, rubber, fiber, and others, it is anticipated to drive the growth of the segment during the forecast period (2016-2023). The auto fuel segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the global LPG market. The increasing adoption of LPG due to its associated advantages in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and cost-effectiveness as auto fuel is influencing consumers to adopt LPG as an alternative transportation fuel. This, in turn, is expected to augment the growth of the segment during the forecast period (2016–2024).

Based on the source, the global liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) market is segmented as follows:

  • Natural Gas Well
  • Refinery

The global LPG market is classified according to its source. Among sources, natural gas wells were the most dominant segment in 2016 and were anticipated to continue their dominance over the forecast period. Increasing exploration and production of natural gas reserves, along with exploration and production of non-conventional shale gas reserves, are anticipated to drive the growth of the segment during the forecast period (2016–2024). However, advancements in technology and growth in the capacity expansion of refineries fuel the production of LPG in refineries, which in turn is projected to drive the growth of the refinery segment during the forecast period. The segment is anticipated to witness steady growth over the forecast period (2016–2024).

For the purpose of this study, the global liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific 
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

In 2015, Asia Pacific was observed to be the most dominant region in the global liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) market. Over 40% of global LPG consumption was accounted for by the region. Growing demand for cooking gas from the residential sector coupled with various government initiatives such as subsidies to increase the penetration of LPG as a cooking fuel in emerging economies such as China and India is influencing consumers to replace conventional cooking fuels such as wood, kerosene, and coal.

Further, increasing demand for LPG auto fuel due to growing awareness about the associated advantages of LPG as fuel in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the cost-effectiveness of LPG as auto fuel, is influencing consumers to adopt LPG as an alternative transportation fuel. The region is also projected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period (2016–2024).
