Natural Gas Type Propane Segment to Exhibit Strong Growth due to Higher Quality and Increased Availability

The Natural Gas Type Propane segment dominated the Propane market in 2021 and is anticipated to continue its dominance from 2022 to 2030 due to the higher quality and increased availability of propane from expanding natural gas processing plants. The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that the propane production from natural gas processing has steadily increased over the last decade, reaching 1.4 million barrels per day in 2020, up from 0.8 million barrels per day in 2010. The EIA has also projected that natural gas processing plants will continue to expand and increase production of propane and other natural gas liquids (NGLs) in the coming years, primarily due to the rise in natural gas production from shale formations and the associated increase in NGL production.

SkyQuest has predicted significant growth in the Propane market for the Asia Pacific region, with a projected CAGR of 4.97% during the forecast period. This expansion can be attributed to the increasing demand in sectors such as residential, commercial, and transportation, as well as the growing availability of propane as a byproduct of shale gas production in the region.
