Indian LPG imports have been registering some remarkable trends in the
last 10 years. The growth trends over the last 10 years, 5 years and 1
year are: 17% CAGR (FY07 to FY17), 14% CAGR (FY12 to FY17) and 23%. At
nearly 11 million tonnes in FY17, India surpassed Japan's imports at
10.6 million tonnes.

The government has gone full throttle in promoting LPG as a reliable
fuel through schemes such as Pahal, Ujjwala, Direct Benefit Transfer and
'Give it Up' which led to increased adoption of LPG in residential
segment. While 'Pahal' got enlisted under Guinness Book of World Record
for its largest cash transfer at a whopping USD 6.5 billion. All the
same, under the Ujjwala scheme free LPG connections will be provided to
5 crore poor households by 2019.

A rapid increase in urban population combined with increasing LPG
penetration in rural areas has resulted in a 10% growth in LPG
consumption, making India the second largest LPG consumer in the World
at 19 million tonne per year. Based on Government's continued efforts to

is expected to see a sustained double-digit growth in the years to come.

registered a growth of 4.9% during FY17. According to SIAM, the domestic
passenger vehicle sales is likely to reach 7%-9% growth in FY18.

segment is driven by LPG's practical advantage and an enhanced positive
perception as an agent for women empowerment and social change. With new
geographical shifts & expansions in demand base, there is a significant
potential for LPG infrastructure addition and geographical
