Tanzania offers the largest and fastest growing market for the petrol station business. This could be credited to various reasons such as the growth of the automotive sector, good level of economic development and regulatory encouragement.
In the automotive sector, Tanzania has seen a surge in the number of vehicles in the streets from the late 2000s to date. Roads and parking areas in the cities are congested with vehicles of various types, sizes, brands and model.
In addition, the introduction of the new mode of transportation including motorcycle (popularly known as boda boda) and tricycles (also known as Bajaji) provides growth opportunities for individuals and companies interested in starting and running a petrol station business in Tanzania.
Furthermore, the development of roads and urban cities, and the proliferation of infrastructural projects have increased the demand for heavy-duty commercial vehicles which drives the demand for fuel (petrol, diesel, kerosene and lubricants).
Also, government regulations regarding burning the importation of substandard and fake lubricants drives the growth demand of lubricant and engine oil in Tanzania.
There is still a power-failure problem in the country; so, people depend on generators—both diesel and petrol-powered. They have to buy fuel from petrol stations.
People all over the country need fuel for their cars, trucks, tricycles, motorcycles and other machines and all these vehicles and generators run on diesels or petrol that you can setup in your own fuel station and get huge income selling it.
With the growing demand for petroleum products in Tanzania, there is a proliferation of petrol stations that facilitate intense but healthy competition between each dealer.
But new entrepreneurs with strategic locations, good marketing plans and sufficient start-up capital can win competition in this business.
