by Vessel Size

Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGC)
Large Gas Carriers (LGC)
Medium Gas Carriers (MGC)
Small Gas Carriers (SGC)

The market is divided into Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGC), Large Gas Carriers (LGC), Medium Gas Carriers (MGC), and Small Gas Carriers (SGC) based on the size of the vessel. By 2029, the Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGC) sector is anticipated to have the most market share, accounting for %. The utilisation of very big gas carriers is often necessary for longer distance LPG gas transportation across numerous nations. The increase of liquefied petroleum gas trade relations between countries, especially those in Western Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, as well as the United States, is the primary driver of the segment's growth. Nonetheless, it is anticipated that during the projection period, the LGC would barely outperform. Large petrol transporters also hold a significant dominance in the global market.
