Market Driver:

High Adoption and Consumption of Liquefied Cylinders to Augment Growth

The surging demand for LPG for various applications will spur opportunities for the market. The increasing government subsidies for the consumption of liquefied cylinders in developing countries will aid the expansion of the market. For instance, the Indian Government launched Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana which is aimed to provide LPG connection in the untapped regions. Furthermore, the booming hospitability industry coupled with high disposable income in emerging nations will have a tremendous impact on the market. Besides, the growing consumption of LPG especially in the residential sector for cooking will improve the prospects of the market in the future.

Diminished Consumption to Retard Market Growth Amid Coronavirus

Coronavirus has negatively affected commercial and industrial operations across the world. The disruption in logistics, labor shortage, low demand from end-users will considerably disturb the industry. The declined demand and supply have resulted in major losses for the country. For instance, in India, the uncertainty caused by the pandemic resulted in an overestimation of demand for LPG that ramped up purchases in March and April. Moreover, the drop in LPG demand owing to the shutdown of hotels and businesses due to lockdown will further dampen the market growth. Also, the imposition of lockdowns in various countries to curb the spread of coronavirus will adversely impact the global market.
