About This Report


Thick smog has descended on the Petrol Stations industry over the past five years as operators have attempted to navigate rising oil prices and vigorous competition. Soaring oil prices led to sharp increases in transport fuel costs and stagnating demand early in the period. Weak economic activity and fears of future price rises curbed retail fuel sales. Drivers have been gradually switching to more fuel-efficient, diesel-powered cars, negatively impacting demand for both fuel and the industry as a whole.

Companies in this industry sell automotive fuel such as petrol, diesel, autogas and alternative fuels directly to consumers. Most petrol stations also operate a convenience store and some provide car-washing services. A significant proportion of sales to drivers of heavy goods vehicles, buses and coaches are not included in the industry because these often go through wholesalers.

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.
