THE INDUSTRY

3.0Industry (Brief Analysis)

The petroleum industry in Nigerian has grown over the years offering products to consumers at premium price and quantity. They seek to supply the teeming population of Nigerians with product at every time that such is available for purchase at the terminal.

Despite their efforts however, demands have remained relatively strong and there is insufficient products. The implication is that the supply of these products is not able to meet the high demand for it. This development has led to the advent entrant of new marketers on daily basis which has not also fully satisfied the yearning of the consumers. Hence there is always a wide gap to be filled

It is because of this same circumstance that the industry has virtually no need to advertise. However, where the profit margin can absorb advertising, it will lead to greater volumes of sales especially now that there barely constant supply of alternate source of energy to power their operations.

3.1Players in the Industry

There are all kinds of petroleum products marketer in the Nigerian oil and gas industry. products sold ranges from DPK to AGO and Gas (both domestic and industrial).Marketers, who form the bulk of the supply side and in direct contact with the petroleum products end user, dominate the market especially at the product lifting terminal. They are largely unorganized and as such serve as a festering ground for marketing substandard products.
