"Connecting LPG Demand Growth, Export & Infrastructure Needs"


LPG consumption on the African continent is huge in potential with varying demand and requires much overcoming of barriers.


The overall average LPG consumption in Africa region is 3 kg per person, whereas North Africa recorded an average LPG consumption of 53 kg per person per year. In Sub-Sahara Africa, per year consumption is only 2.5 kg per person, and less than 1 kg per person in Nigeria.


Nigeria with its huge population is one of the largest LPG potential markets in the world. Experts believe that with the right regulation and enforcement, Nigerian LPG market could potentially grow to nearly 200 million tons per year next year.


National Oil, Kenya's state-owned oil company, forecasted growth in Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) consumption as the country's middle class expands and consumers shun inefficient and hazardous traditional wood fuel. Construction of LPG terminals have encouraged this demand growth and aid supply distribution of LPG. The increased use of LPG in Kenya has not been without challenges with key among them being the proliferation of illegal LPG operators.


Despite the significant opportunity, the most important barriers that must be overcome to successfully create new LPG markets include the Policy Environment, Accessibility, Affordability and Awareness.
