Report Insights

  • The growing demand for butane can be attributed to the to increased demand for LPG, which contains around 85% of butane by volume. This is leading to a major shift in the choice of domestic fuel from traditional fuels such as wood, coal, and kerosene to LPG. Also, local governments are raising awareness about the harmful effects of traditional fuels and are encouraging the adoption of LPG which is eco-friendly when compared to traditional and other fossil fuels such as gasoline.
  • The buyers in this market should engage in long-term contracts with suppliers. This helps them in obtaining huge discounts and value-added services such as training of workers regarding the safe handling of butane. Also engaging in long-term contracts help buyers in optimizing threshold prices.
  • One of the key challenges faced by the buyers in this market includes challenges in procuring data regarding suppliers’ operations. The buyers may find it difficult to access the data associated with the working of suppliers' production facilities. Hence engaging in strategic partnerships with preferred suppliers and including NDA in SLAs would help the buyers overcome this challenge.

Butane Industry Pricing Trends

Volume-based pricing and spot pricing are the two most widely adopted pricing models in the butane industry. Volume-based pricing is used predominantly by large buyers to leverage the large scale of their procurements for obtaining discounts and value-additions. The buyers can gain cost benefits of sudden drops in prices of raw materials such as natural gas or crude oil in the spot-pricing model. It also helps the buyers in procuring varying quantities, depending on their requirements.
