Drivers & Restraints:

Demand for Autogas and BioLPG to Boost Market Expansion

Autogas or automotive LPG is gaining immense traction worldwide. Its growing adoption worldwide is driving the LPG market growth. Autogas consumption increased steadily in recent years, hitting 27.1 million tons in 2019, a rise of 1% compared to 2018. In addition to these factors, ongoing government initiatives to boost the product adoption will propel the market forward. Governments are launching various policies such as subsidies to provider wider access to the product. For instance, the Indian Government introduced the PAHAL scheme that delivers subsidies directly into the bank accounts of consumers.

On the contrary, increased focus on clean renewable technology, adoption of biofuels, and zero carbon emissions could hamper the product demand slightly.
