Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a non-renewable source of energy. It is extracted from crude oil and natural gas. The main composition of LPG are hydrocarbons containing three or four carbon atoms. The normal components of LPG thus, are propane and butane. Small concentrations of other hydrocarbons may also be present. Depending on the source of the LPG and how it has been produced, components other than hydrocarbons may also be present.

LPG is a gas at atmospheric pressure and normal ambient temperatures, but it can be liquefied when moderate pressure is applied or when the temperature is sufficiently reduced. It can be easily condensed, packaged, stored and utilized, which makes it an ideal energy source for a wide range of applications.

Aruvian's R'search brings to you an industry analysis of Liquefied Petroleum Gas – from the basics of usage and history to the development of autogas. The report covers in-depth profiles of LPG equipment manufacturers, LPG vehicle manufacturers, LPG suppliers, and countries where LPG is a major source of energy.

The report also covers the nitty-grittys of LPG vehicle fleets, regulatory factors affecting the industry, incentives promoting LPG usage, other non-automobile uses of LPG, factors affecting the transportation of LPG, a complete analysis of the LPG vehicle, and much more.
