Industrial Gases Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global industrial gases market reached a value of US$ 97 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Industrial gases refer to the gases produced in large quantities for usage in industrial processes. Depending on their application in different sectors, these gases are also known as fuel, medical, refrigerant, or specialty gases. Some of the industrial gases, such as oxygen and helium, provide a base for life support for artificially ventilated patients and modern anesthetic techniques. Hydrogen is used in the transportation industry and oxygen in gasification plants, hospitals and steel manufacturing plants. In addition, liquid helium is utilized in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment to cool down superconductive magnet coil scanners.

Industrial Gases Market Trends:

In recent years, technological innovations in the usage of various industrial gases have bolstered the growth of the market. For instance, liquid oxygen and hydrogen are being used in propellants to launch rockets that carry broadcast, communications and meteorological satellites into space. Apart from this, the leading companies are investing in research and development activities (R&D) to develop new and improved methods to produce and distribute industrial gases across the globe. Moreover, several international non-profit organizations, such as the European Industrial Gases Association, provide manufacturers with expert advice on the production, transport, storage and utilization of industrial gases. They also promote consistency of safety, health, environmental and technical standards throughout the industrial gas industry. However, the demand and production of industrial gases are being affected by the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which has led to a slow-down in the commercial, transportation and industrial activities.
