The Gasoline and Petroleum Bulk Stations industry is intimately linked to the supply of, and demand for, petroleum and petroleum products. Consequently, the industry grew strongly as oil prices and oil demand rebounded postrecession. However, the industry fell sharply as collapsing oil prices driven by strong North American Production and weak global demand have caused a subsequent sharp drop in the prices of industry products. Looking forward, the industry is expected to return to growth as the oil price stabilizes and the volume of oil and petroleum products supplied by industry operators is forecast to expand.
Companies in this industry operate bulk crude oil, gasoline and other petroleum products storage facilities for the resale of these products to smaller petroleum distributors, gasoline stations, petroleum refiners and other downstream markets.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
