Butane Market Global Industry Analysis and Forecast -2025

The global butane market was worth USD 60.04 billion in the year of 2016 and is projected to touch nearly USD 93.30 billion by 2025, while registering itself at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.02% during the forecast period. The market industry is anticipated to witness substantial growth with decent compound annual growth rate during the forecast period due to increasing use of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) for a variety of applications. It is likely to have a positive prospect over the approaching years. Butane is employed in fuel manufacturing procedures, owing to its characteristics like easily liquefiable and high flammability. The market demand of LPG is growing, as its adoption as household fuel, chiefly in Asia Pacific and Africa, is expected to fuel butane market. In many countries, the government is offering subsidy on LPG rates to encourage its use as domestic fuel. The government is encouraging its utilization in order to trim down coal need and limit carbon footprints.

As compared to coal combustion, the CO2 emission with LPG is reduced by almost 33 percent which makes it a proficient alternative for traditional fossil fuels. LPG has extensive range of use over numerous sectors like residential, commercial, agriculture and automobile. Increasing use of autogas due to its cost and functional benefits as compared to oil based fuels. The utilization has been speedily increasing from the previous few years, primarily owing to its ecological benefits and other properties like high energy content and the fact that it burns easily. Governments of nations like Australia and Algeria are encouraging the local public to make use of autogas vehicles. The government of Indonesia had established a program for paraffin-to-LPG conversion to encourage its use, and allotted a stove and 3 kilo refillable cylinder for LPG. In South Africa, knowledge and promotion of the product is not implemented yet, particularly in rural areas, the whole focus is on LPG promotion now. In India, government has taken initiatives such as Rajiv Gandhi Gramin LPG Vitaran program, this facilitates the distribution of LPG at low cost in the rural areas of India.

Application Outlook and Trend Analysis

The LPG section has major share in 2015 and its requirement was 92.12 million tons. Growing applications for LPG in commercial and residential sectors for heating and cooking purposes is anticipated to promote the market growth during the forecast period. Butane as well as its isomers is employed for gasoline mixing in plants to oxygenate and to amend its octane rating. Iso-butane is likely to substitute the conventional hazardous chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) which were earlier used as deodorants, propellants, and refrigerants. The fuel gas use in fuel refineries amends the combustible characteristics of the fuel and is hence projected to drive the development from 2016 to 2025. Petrochemical sector is projected to be the quickest growing market during the forecast period. Rising disposable earnings and increasing standard of living is projected to boost the growth during the forecast period. Increasing incidences of human health risks due to breathing-in butane gas has positioned the market under numerous regulations and supply norms. These standard and regulation acts are likely to regulate negatively during the upcoming years.
