According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "LPG Tanker Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global LPG tanker market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5% during 2023-2028. A liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tanker is a vessel specially designed to enable the bulk transportation of petroleum gases. It contains numerous separate reservoirs stacked in cargo holds. Some standard product variants include small-pressurized, insulated, refrigerated seagoing, and semi-pressurized tanks. These tankers are usually made from carbon steel, and the wall thickness is based on industrial requirements. They can be further segregated into single- or double-hull tankers, depending on safety preconditions. LPG tankers are cleaner, easier to maintain, provide higher efficiency, and avoid technical difficulties during transportation; thus, they are used to carry and move ammonia, propylene, and vinyl chloride. Apart from this, LPG tankers are widely employed in several sectors, such as oil and gas, petrochemical, automotive, and refinery. Currently, they are available in very large, medium, and small sizes that can be powered by a controllable-pitch propeller or a geared diesel system.
Global LPG tanker Market Trends:
The considerable growth in LPG gas trading activities due to the rising product demand in the petrochemical sector represents a prime factor driving the market growth. Moreover, the shifting focus toward oil & gas production from shale rock owing to volatile crude oil prices and the uptake of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling processes is favoring the market growth. This, in turn, has fostered the trade of LPG, thus facilitating the demand for effective bulk liquid handling systems across the globe. Additionally, LPG is clean, cost-efficient, portable, convenient, and non-toxic, on account of which it is frequently used as an alternative to coal and wood. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of LPG for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and cooking applications and as a feedstock for producing fertilizers and petrochemicals is propelling the market growth. In line with this, significant technological advancements in LPG tankers, including the advent of semi-membrane tanks and their large-scale integration with bow wave resistance systems on the tanker's hull, are supporting the market growth. Apart from this, stringent regulations and guidelines regarding emissions are pushing manufacturers to introduce engines with higher efficiency, employ cleaner fuels, and undertake extensive infrastructural developments, which is positively influencing the market growth.
