“Autogas will replace CNG and octane”
LPG in Bangladesh is a booming sector. The demand is increasing in industrial, commercial and household sectors. Autogas sector will come soon, in both rural and urban areas.
The popularity of LPG is increasing in rural areas, with an increase in people’s purchasing power. Through the introduction of LPG, the living standard of people has also improved. There are a lot of LPG accessories required to be imported from other countries. We need to manufacture those accessories locally to reduce dependency on imports.
The government is promoting this sector. They are not charging taxes on LPG products yet. The government can help increase skilled manpower in the sector. They should also lead awareness programmes to reduce fear among customers about LPG products. Since licenses have been provided to many companies, there is a possibility of an increase in financial burden which will give rise to illegal practices. To remain competitive in the market, companies will have to reduce the price of the product.
The users should know the overall functions of the parts required to make LPG cylinders. It will help them to handle these products safely and thus will significantly reduce LPG related risks.
Jamuna Gas gives high priority to safety measures of the product. We have developed a strong distribution network in Bangladesh. We are looking forward to establishing five more satellite plants. We have road tankers to ensure the safe delivery of LPG cylinders.
