Executive Summary

Industrial gases are comprised of elements, molecular compounds or mixtures. The most common industrial gases are oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and noble gases such as argon, neon, xenon and krypton. Some industrial gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, argon, LNG and liquefied petroleum gas are liquefied at high pressure for ease of storage and transport. Industrial gases are used in a wide number of industries such as oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, steelmaking, and food & beverages etc.

The global industrial gases market has increased during the year 2014-15, and projections are made that the market would rise in the next five years i.e. 2016-2020 at a rapid pace. Major factors contributing in the growth of the market are rising demand from major industries such as oil and gas, increasing application of industrial gases, growing demand of liquefied gas, and growing urbanization etc.

Rapid industrialization in emerging economies such as India and China, rising use of industrial gases in solar PV industry, and emerging innovative technologies are expected to fuel the market demand in the forecasted period. In spite of high growth, market is still facing certain challenges that are hampering the growth of the market. Challenges encountered by the market are lack of quality and cost of power, high distribution cost, and stringent government and environmental regulations etc.
