The Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) sector has over the years developed in leaps and bounds with consumption increasing phenomenally from 5 million kg’s in 2010 to 38 million kg in 2018.

This was largely as a result of the liberalization of the energy sector in the early 2000s and the recorded increase of independent operators joining the supply chain after 2010.

Opportunities to invest in this environmentally friendly resource are abound in various stages of the supply chain to both interested local and international investors.
