China LPG Annual Report

Understand where China’s LPG market is heading

The economic slowdown has not affected China’s LPG apparent consumption, which is expected to rise. This is partly due to expansions in the LPG deep processing industry – more LPG products are consumed as chemical feedstocks. The share of LPG deep processing in the country’s LPG consumption mix will also increase further. But how will this affect China’s LPG supply and demand?

The China LPG Market Annual Report collates current information on LPG industry trends and forecasts the potential industry changes that could affect: supply and demand, sources of LPG imports and the domestic suppliers and the downstream consumption structure. It also considers the likely effects of the unifying of LPG sales by Sinopec, the commencement of LPG exports to China from Iran, and the substitution of natural gas in the traditional consumption sectors.

With considerable investment opportunities available, the China LPG Market Annual Report summarises market developments so that you can make properly guided business decisions. The report analyses the profits and margins of the major domestic LPG importers and exporters as well as the upstream and downstream markets.
