The segment structure of the LPG market in 2019 did not change significantly compared to the previous year. Still, its majority constitutes autogas – 3.1 million m3 in the period Q1-3 2019 and it was about 64% of the engine petrol market.
Simultaneously, so-called re-export of this type of fuel decreased (drop by 11% yoy to the level of 0.37 million m3), which demonstrates a still stable position of this fuel on the Polish market.
