Revival in economic activity and stabilizing oil and natural gas prices are driving the industrial gas market growth. However, the manufacturing sector is witnessing flat growth resulting in lower sales volume for larger players in Americas and Europe.
Different end-user industries of industrial gases have varied requirements in terms of volume, frequency of use and purity levels and hence, industrial gas companies are offering structured solutions to meet demands of different end-user industries. The Chemical and Petrochemical and Automobile industries are the two largest end-user segments for the industrial gas market, accounting for a market share of 22 percent each, followed by Metal Production and Fabrication for 21 percent.
