Global Propane Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.0% During 2024-2032, Aided by Increasing Residential Applications of Propane

Global Propane Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Propane Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.0% in the forecast period of 2024-2032. The market is being driven by rapid industrialisation and the growing use of propane in the automotive sector.

The Asia Pacific region is witnessing a strong demand for propane due to its affordability and stability compared to other energy sources. With the growing industrialisation and urbanisation in developing countries such as China, Indonesia, and others, propane is increasingly used as a cleaner cooking fuel.


In the growing automotive sector in developed countries like Japan and South Korea, propane is primarily used as a fuel for vehicles and as a feedstock for the manufacturing of petrochemicals (olefins). Additionally, the adoption of propane as a comparatively low-emission and efficient fuel source has encouraged its adoption, supporting the global push towards decarbonisation and sustainable energy sources as a result of environmental concerns and strict regulatory laws.


Partnerships between companies further strengthen the propane market expansion. In July 2023, BP Plc (NYSE: BP) signed a long-term sale and purchase agreement (SPA) with OMV Aktiengesellschaft to cover the supply of 1 million metric tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per year for 10 years from 2026. According to the terms of the contract, BP will supply OMV LNG from its extensive and international LNG portfolio.


This LNG will be received and re-gasified through the Gate LNG terminal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, where OMV has regasification capacity, or through other ports in Europe. The advancement of OMV's ongoing diversification of supply sources, which includes gas from its production and external sources from Norway as well as further LNG volumes, was one of their top goals.
