Global Helium Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Apr 2021

Global helium demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.65%. Helium is a chemically inert gas which liquifies at low temperatures. It is commercially available in two forms namely gas and liquid. It has many properties including non-reactive, non-corrosive, and non-flammable properties. Due to these properties, helium finds application in many areas including breathing mixes, cryogenics, leak detection, welding, pressurizing and purging, controlled atmosphere, and others. It has many end use industries such as aerospace, electronics and semiconductors, nuclear power, healthcare, welding, metal fabrication, others. Growing demand from healthcare industry where it is used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for magnet cooling and semiconductor and electronics industry where it is used in the manufacturing of LED screens is expected to drive the demand of helium during the forecast period. Moreover, stringent government regulations regarding usage of helium and expensive extraction process might hinder the demand growth during the forecast period. Additionally, the growing demand for ultra-low temperature freezers is expected to push the demand further during the forecast period.  
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. Medical gases were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand of helium for the first half of 2020. The demand for helium grew during the coronavirus pandemic. However, the demand of semiconductors and electronics fell during the pandemic. This negatively affected the demand of helium. 
Region wise, Asia pacific region holds the major share of global demand for helium due to increasing demand of healthcare and semiconductors and electronics. Moreover, increasing population and per capita income in emerging economies like India and China coupled with growing number of industries using helium is another factor influencing demand growth in the Asia Pacific region.

To extract data for global helium market, primary research surveys were conducted with helium manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and end users. While interviewing, the respondents were also inquired about their competitors. Through this technique, ChemAnalyst was able to include manufacturers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. Moreover, ChemAnalyst analyzed various end user segments and projected a positive outlook for Global helium market over the coming years. 
ChemAnalyst calculated helium demand globally by analyzing the historical data and demand forecast which was carried out considering imported helium, prices, materials used for production of helium . ChemAnalyst sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company websites, association reports, annual reports, etc., were also studied by ChemAnalyst.
