Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Market Outlook – 2030    

The global liquefied petroleum gas market size was valued at $130.1 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach $243.4 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.5% from 2021 to 2030. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a clean burning, sustainable, and efficient fuel. As it is green, low-carbon, efficient, and innovative energy source, it offers benefits for consumers, industry, and the environment. LPG is cost-effective, as most of its energy is converted into heat than other traditional fuels, and it can be transported, stored, and used in various applications, from cooking, heating, air conditioning, and transportation, to cigarette lighters and the Olympic torch. 

The growth of the global liquefied petroleum gas market is driven by rise in demand for LPG from various operations. In addition, implementation of stringent government regulations toward environmental pollution is a key factor fueling the market growth from 2021 to 2030. However, rapid development of the renewable energy sector and inconsistent domestic supply of LPG are the key factors hampering the growth of the LPG market. On the contrary, government initiatives toward the use of LPG over conventional fuels and rise in use of gas in the vehicles are anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the key players to maintain the position in the market in the upcoming years.
