Industrial Gases are gaseous materials which are produced for use in various industries. The significant gases which are used in the industry include oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, acetylene, hydrogen, argon, and helium.
The demand for fresh food products is rising globally. Consumers are becoming more health-conscious and preferring safe and clean food with fewer additives, which is increasing the demand for industrial gases that can be used in place of the chemical ingredients.
The increasing demand for the high-grade industrial gases market share in Healthcare is also a significant driver for the market.
In contrast to oxygen, which is used in medical facilities to aid in the treatment of hypoxemia and hypoxia, carbon dioxide is used for insufflation and is often combined with oxygen or air as a respiratory stimulant to promote deep breathing. Nitrous oxide, nitric oxide, and other industrial gases like hydrogen, helium, and xenon are also being prepared for clinical use in pharmaceutical products.
Thus, the broad applications of Industrial gases in the healthcare sector are boosting the market for Industrial Gases. The stringent laws and regulations associated with the manufacturing, storage, and distribution of Industrial Gases tend to decrease the profit margin for the companies. And also the cost involved in the room of Industrial Gases is very high. So, these factors can be a potential barrier to the growth of the market.
The Industrial Gases Market report segments the market by gas type and by end-user industry. Gas type the market includes Oxygen, Nitrogen, Helium, Hydrogen, Carbon dioxide, Acetylene, Argon, and Others.
Nitrogen is the largest segment in this category. Nitrogen is a critical cryogenic agent in cooling, chilling and food freezing. Because of its freezing temperatures, immersion freezing in liquid nitrogen is the fastest freezing method known for producing Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) foods. Nitrogen also plays a crucial role in reducing spoilage, discoloration and off–flavors, giving strength to retail packaging.
Most noteworthy, As the demand for frozen food products is increasing in the U.S., it will increase the demand for industrial gases especially Nitrogen, which has significant applications in frozen foods. Further, the market can be classified by End-user Industry.
End-User Industries for Industrial gases are Chemicals & Refining, Manufacturing, Metals, Energy, Automotive, Food & Beverages, Health & Medicine, Electronics, and Others.
Geographically, the market is divided into North America, Europe, South America, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world.
North America contributes significantly to the Industrial Gas Market. It is because of the rapid rise in the automotive and construction sector in the U.S. which is propelling the demand for Industrial Gases.Also, the consumption of industrial gases is increasing in refineries as there is a high demand for cleaner-burning fuels in U.S. which is driving the need for Hydrogen in the U.S.
APAC is predicted to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period owing to the demand of industrial gases in manufacturing, chemicals, healthcare and food sector in this region because of rapid urbanization and fast-growing population.
Moreover, governments in countries like China, India, and Indonesia are taking various initiatives to develop alternative energy sources. This is fuelling the growth of gasification plants which uses a substantial amount of Industrial Gases.
