Specialty Gases Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, By Type, By Application, By Region, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Specialty Gases demand stood at 1.85 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 3.31 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.88% until 2030. A high level of purity required for the special purpose application falls under the category of special gases. The Specialty Gases market is predominantly driven by the growing demand for chemicals and Specialty Gases in developing economies along with the growing metal and mining industry. The ongoing deployment of power projects, growing construction activities, and rising demand for electronic products have resulted in the increased consumptions of chemicals. The processing of chemicals involves the usage of Specialty Gases, and the growing chemicals market is expected to eventually boost the demand for Specialty Gases. Based on end-user demand, chemical processing dominates the global Specialty Gas market. The increasing market consumption and increased acceptance trends of the industry are driving the growth of the market in the upcoming ten years. Manufacturing, electronics, healthcare, and academics industries are aiding the growth of the global Specialty Gas market in the forecast period. 
Pure gases accounted for the largest market share in 2020 and are projected to maintain dominance during the forecast period. Pure gases are used as carrier gases, blanketing gases, etc., and in major applications such as electronics & semiconductors, healthcare, analytical & calibration, etc.
 Specialty Gases are distributed in packaged cylinders and the distribution of these gases is mainly carried out in remote locations for which larger distances are needed to be covered. Moreover, the cylinders are required to be properly secured to prevent them from striking each other or from falling which requires extra safety measures. These parameters result in higher transportation charges for Specialty Gases. The high transportation cost directly impacts the Specialty Gases price which affects the market of Specialty Gases.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, the world economy was disrupted. The market was affected drastically, and the production and manufacturing units were shut down in the first half of 2020. Furthermore, the major market players intentionally halted the production, keeping their employee’s health and wellness in mind. It resulted in a decline in the demand for Specialty Gases from various end use industries. However, the crisis being faced by other sectors is steadily released with the surge in the demand for oxygen from the healthcare domain due to the spread of the novel corona virus. Additionally, a recovery in the demand for Specialty Gases is witnessed since the resumption of industrial activities after the relaxation in lockdown restrictions by the end of 2020 and is projected to propel the growth of its market in the upcoming years.
 Region-wise, Asia-Pacific holds the largest share of the global Specialty Gases market. The region is likely to maintain its market dominance during the forecast period on account of the presence of major developing economies in the region where the healthcare and electronics sectors are growing rapidly, where Specialty Gases are majorly used, thereby pushing the growth of the Specialty Gases market in the coming years. China, India and Indonesia are some of the emerging economies that are undergoing rapid economic transformation and are growing markets for the Speciality Gas market globally.
Some of the major players operating in the global Specialty Gas market are Air Liquid SA, Linde Group, Praxair Inc, Air products and Chemicals Inc, Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation, Messer Group Gmbh, Iwatawi Corporation, Air Water Inc, Showa Denko K.K. Coregas Pty Ltd. and others.
