Classic Steel Cylinder Market Drivers
Rising Demand for LPG & CNG:
Classic Steel Cylinder demand is anticipated to rise due to the expanding use of these cylinders for a variety of applications, including heating and cooking, extinguishing fires, water treatment, soldering, beverage dispensing, medical uses and extinguishing flames. As an additional measure, governments throughout the world are putting strict regulations in place to lower emissions from vehicles and other transportation systems. As a result, demand for cylinders is increasing rapidly as more people buy natural gas vehicles around the world. According to the Government of India, The Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas has a programme called Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana that aims to link women from Below Poverty Line (BPL) families to LPG. Provision has been included in the Union Budget for FY 21–22 for the release of an additional 1 crore LPG connections under the PMUY scheme. According to International Energy Association, By 2029, the Indian government plans to have more than 35 million additional LPG connections and over 7000 new CNG filling stations. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, CNG fuels around 175,000 vehicles in the United States and approximately 23 million vehicles globally. With the increase in LPG and CNG production and growth prospects, the demand for classic steel cylinders is rising in the LPG and CNG industry.
