    Industrial Gases market report transcript

    Global Market Outlook On Industrial Gases

    • The global industrial gas market was around $88 billion in 2022, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2–4 percent between 2022 and 2024

    • The market witnessed a contraction in 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak and lower industrial demand. The market witnessed recovery in 2021 with end-use industries, including chemicals & refining, food & beverage, electronic, healthcare, etc., showing increase in demand

    Global Market Size - Industrial Gas 

    • The industrial gas market is estimated to have grown to 88 billion USD in 2022, driven by Asian economies and demand from the US. Industrial gas is expected to see growth in market size in 2023 by around 3 percent from 2022 levels.

    • The global industrial gas market was estimated to be around US$88 billion in 2022, rising from US$ 85 billion in 2021. Demand increased in energy and manufacturing sector due to recovery from COVID-19 pandemic

    • The major drivers for growth would be emerging economies, including China and India. In 2022, rare gases, such as krypton and xenon, faced tight supply, due to supply bottlenecks, amid recovery in demand. Fire in Amur plant in Russia could further delay stable supply from Russia and this could result in tight helium market as the demand recovers

    • North America, North Pacific rim (China, Japan, etc.), and Western Europe are the biggest markets contributing more than 75 percent of global market

    Global Demand by Application 

    • The overall growth outlook for the end-user industries in the mid-term future is moderate. Healthcare, electronics, etc., are major growth drivers. Chemical and refining segments are witnessing a recovery after declining in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Key Trends

    • Manufacturing sector was affected due to COVID-19 resulting in lower sales volume for larger suppliers in Americas and Europe. The sector is witnessing recovery because of reduced restrictions and increased economic activity

    • Regulations for cleaner energy fuel and innovations in renewable space are driving the demand for hydrogen and on-site hydrogen market

    • Increased use of digital devices and the growth of semiconductor industry has made electronics market a leading consumer of industrial & specialty gas

    • Healthcare needs and aging population have driven the demand for pure and complex gases. COVID-19 has increased the demand from healthcare segment since 2020. Increased medical oxygen demand also helped to increase share of healthcare market

    • Food and beverage sector also witnessed growth in 2021 and 2022 although CO2 shortages affected some sectors in the US and Europe

    Industrial Gas Cost Structure

    • High electricity requirement, in separation of industrial gases, makes it a primary cost factor and accounts for 50 percent of the overall production cost.

    • Electricity cost accounts for around 50 percent of the cost of generation and hence, the cost of production fluctuates with electricity prices. The weightage of cost factors could vary based on price change of individual parameters in each country

    • Recovery in crude oil price is likely to exert upward pressure on distribution cost. Electricity price is also expected to increase moderately, resulting in surge in production cost

    • Large-scale operation provides lower production cost per unit of gas as compared to small independent ASUs for producing industrial gases separately

    • High capital costs associated with ASUs require large industrial consumers to opt for long-term gas purchase contracts (3 years for bulk liquid and 15 years for tonnage)

    Industrial Gas Price Drivers

    Energy Cost

    • Electricity is the main source of energy in separation of air and drives the cost of production of industrial gases

    • Large scale production has advantage over small units as smaller units have higher specific electricity consumption

    Labor Cost

    • Impact of labor is relatively lower for industrial gas production and has very little effect on the overall cost of production of different grades of gases

    Logistic Cost

    • Fluctuations in fuel prices have a direct impact on the overall logistic costs of transporting cylinders or bulk liquid trucking

    • Companies are optimizing routes and establishing filling centers to reduce cost associated with long distance transportation of gases

    Oil & Natural Gas Price Fluctuation

    • For gases like hydrogen and helium, feedstock cost fluctuations have large impact on production cost and hence companies are forward contracting to manage price risks

    • It is directly linked to the raw material price hikes. It is also highly affected by indirect transportation cost

    Quality/Special Gas

    • If the composition of gas requirement is proprietary, it generally costs very high and requirement of high quality gas also drives cost. Low quality gas and general gases carry lesser cost due to availability of multiple sources of supply

    Gas Purity

    • Industrial gas companies price gases based on purity level and high purity gas requirements drive prices

    Frequency of Purchase

    • Non frequent purchase of gases will drive prices and hence industrial gas customers are optimizing usage volume and frequency for consistent purchase of gases

    Customized Products

    • Complex design, specific gas products are tailor-made, which involves high value of production

    • This drives the prices of such products as their availability is through select channels

    Volume of Purchase

    • Volume of purchase remains a key factor in determining prices as this can impact overall logistic costs and company’s margins

    • High volume of purchase suitable of FTL transportation can gather high discounts

    Delivery Location

    • Industrial gas companies price differently to different delivery locations based on their availability of infrastructure

    • Delivery at locations where supplier has no presence would require new infrastructure and could drive prices

    Industrial Gas Sourcing Best Practices

    • An individual site, preferably, should source nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen from the same supplier

    • Volume driven lower pricing is possible with a site when the same supplier is chosen for one site, the reason being that, the supplier would be able to achieve economies of scale and volumes due to output of nitrogen and oxygen, that are dependent on the ASU

    • The suitability of supply options moves from cylinder to on-site generation based on quantity

    • The supply mode for a particular site should be based on a careful estimate of projected demand
