LPG Tanker Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2024

Category : Energy and Power | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC399

Introduction

The high rate of production of shale gas in some parts of the world will act as high-impact driver for the growth of LPG tanker market. This market is expected to grow at a rapid pace. Due to the high production rate of shale gas, there has been an unprecedented rise in LPG trade. Also, there is a high demand for LPG for cooking and HVAC applications, thereby fueling the demand for safe transportation and storage of LPG. In general, there has been an increase in the activities related to energy commodities across the globe, thereby driving the growth of this market. Thus, the demand for LPG tankers is expected to rise at a high pace. A number of LPG carries and tanker firms have initiated or completed the expansion of their capacities.

Market Dynamics

Factors such as rise in international gas trade, increased shale gas production from untapped reserves, and continued usage of LPG as a cooking fuel is boosting the growth of LPG tankers market. The volatility in crude oil prices has also driven the industry towards extracting oil and shale gas. This has been carried out on a large scale owing to the technological improvements in excavating practices. There has been an upsurge in shale gas amount being transported from the U.S. to other regions such as Asia-Pacific and North Africa. High demand for LPG for cooking is fuelling the growth of this market further. The transportation costs have reduced owing to the decline in oil prices, and as a result the market for LPG transportation is catching momentum. However, the unpredictable behavior of crude oil prices has led to the high prices of LPG, thereby hampering the demand to some extent.

Market Classification and Segment Overview

By type, the LPG gas tankers can be categorized into fully pressurized, semi-pressurized or fully refrigerated. The ethylene gas carriers are regarded as a separate element in the market as they require extra refrigeration. The capacity of such carrier’s ranges from 500 cubic meters to over 10,000 cubic meters. Thus, the type of gas tanker selected depends on the LPG volume that is either to be stored or transported. By size, the LPG tankers market can be categorized as small, large, medium and very large gas carriers.

By geography, the global LPG market can be subdivided into: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa (MEA). As Middle East has been the fulcrum for oil production, the LPG gas tanker market in this region is large. However, due to the spike in production of shale oil in the U.S. and Canada, the gas and oil companies in these regions are spending huge amounts on transportation of the resource. Thus, it will lead to the rise in demand for LPG tankers in these countries. Technological improvements in the methods of extraction of gas have also added to the market growth. Also, there has been a constant high demand for energy in emerging APAC countries. This will result in the creation of multimillion dollar opportunities for the LPG tanker market in this region. In China, the petrochemical plants have led to the demand for LPG. There has been an unprecedented upsurge in the demand for LPG tankers for imports by India, thus leading to the huge growth of this market.
