The Global Industrial Gas Business

The Global Industrial Gas Business

Report Scope

This study presents data on supply of and demand for industrial gases by type, technology and application in current U.S. dollars for the major global regions. The report starts with an overview describing the importance of the industrial gas industry in relation to the overall global economy. Major products and applications are then reviewed.

The next section contains a detailed description of current and emerging technologies for the production, distribution and end use of industrial gases. The government environmental and energy regulation scene is discussed as it applies to industrial gases, and there are descriptions of environmental regulation changes and the agencies involved.

The core of the report is an analysis of the industrial gas market’s size and segmentation from 2017 through 2023. The market is segmented by product type, end-user type, application, production technology, purity grade, region, distribution channel and supply mode (e.g., pipeline and cylinder).

The report concludes with an analysis of the structure of the industrial gas industry, including its major players, market shares, and merger and acquisition trends. Patents relating to industrial gases are analyzed, and another chapter contains profiles of companies involved in the industrial gas business.
