In 2021, the LPG consumption stabilised. According to POPiHN data, LPG consumption in 2021 amounted to 4.7m m3, a slight increase of 2.2% y/y. This was lower than the increase in petrol consumption as a result of a much higher increase in autogas prices than petrol.
LPG is mostly imported and in 2021 its share in the market supply was 85% (4 million m3) – 2.5 percentage points higher than in the previous year.
Following the sanctions imposed on Belarus, there were complications with gas purchases from the eastern direction. We could observe very unstable supplies from this direction or even temporary shortages of the commodity These factors had an impact on price increases and margins in wholesale trade.
