Industrial gasses are known by different names across different industries based on different locations or usage such as specialty gasses, medical gasses, fuel gasses and refrigerant gasses. Industrial gasses have application in a vast range of markets, which include oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, water, fertilizers, metals, environmental protection, medicine, electronics and aerospace, power, mining, steelmaking, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food, water, fertilizers, and nuclear power. These gasses are also bought by other industries depending on their needs; typically comprising of bulk orders from industrial clients, covering a sizable range from making a processing facility or pipeline down to cylinder gas supply.
The industrial gasses market is divided into three segments: tonnage gasses, packaged gasses and cylinder gasses. These are three different distribution modes through which industrial gasses are supplied to the required customer. Industrial gasses are those that are exclusively made for industrial use. They are either standard elemental gas or chemical compounds which may be organic or inorganic or they could also be a mixture of gasses.
The commercial market is marked by growth in the light engineering industry and metal fabrication industry, which clustered in northern and western regions of the country. Similarly, industrial gasses market is influenced by growth in steel and refineries sector, which has an upper hand in the eastern and southern part of the country. These gasses are manufactured at optimum temperature and pressure. A significant industrial gas manufacturing technique is - reforming. There are three different types of reforming: steam reforming, partial oxidation and auto-thermal reforming.
Market Dynamics of the Global Industrial Gas Market:
Rapid industrialization in developing countries
Growing need for alternate energy sources
Growing demand in health care sector
Environmental regulations associated with gas production, storage and transportation
Huge cost in converting gasses to required form
As far as the industrial gas market is concerned, Asia-Pacific region holds the biggest market share, followed by North America and Europe. The demand for these gasses in the Asia-Pacific region is predicted to remain on the higher side in the global market for the coming future due to the surge in industrial consumption in the developing markets of India and China. Crude oil is composed of a high level of sulphur which is removed for further use. The sulphur contents from the crude oil can be cleansed by the help of industrial gas such as hydrogen dioxide. The rise in global crude oil demand may hike the demand for industrial gas providing enough growth avenues for the global industrial gasses market.
Global industrial gasses market is dominated by few but major players in the market acquiring more than two-third market share in past few years. L'Air Liquide S.A dominated the global industrial gasses market with more than one-fifth of market share.
