There has been a substantial raise in the consumption of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in the last ten years. The annual LPG consumption in Tanzania has grown from 5,500 metric tonnes in 2005 to 145,800 metric tonnes in 2019.

Furthermore, with continued economic development in Tanzania as well as increasing awareness in the use of LPG as the best alternative to firewood and charcoal, the consumption of LPG will grow to a significantly high level in both urban and rural areas. And with the Tanzanian government’s ambition to scale up the use of LPG across the nation, it will lead to increase in LP Gas demand and supply to hotels, homes, factories, boarding schools, army camps, mines as well as petrol stations.
