  • Is there enough LPG terminal capacity post-2019 to sustain the expected level of seaborne exports?

  • How important is the petrochemical demand for the LPG market? Should we expect a second wave of PDH facilities in China post-2020? What are the developments in LPG steam-cracking capacity in Asia/Europe? Should we expect further LPG consuming projects/expansions?

  • Which are the key retail demand issues? Will the large consumers (India, Indonesia, China, etc) continue the current level of retail consumption growth, or are there limitations? What are the threats and opportunities for this growth to continue?

  • Which are the emerging retail demand countries/regions (i.e. S. Asia/Africa/etc) – what are the main obstacles to overcome in order for this expected growing demand to occur?

  • When do we expect the VLGC market to balance? How IMO regulations can affect the vessel supply? Will LPG be a major consideration for LPG shipping companies as a bunker fuel?
