Global Industrial Gases Market size was valued at USD 95.2 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 171.6 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period 2023 – 2032.

Industrial Gases Market: Overview

Industrial gases are a type of gas that is generated and used in a variety of industrial operations due to their chemical qualities. These gases are often created using procedures such as distillation by fractions, chemical processes, or air separation.

Industrial gases are employed in many industries, such as manufacturing, healthcare, food & beverage, electronics, chemicals, and metalworking.

One notable trend is the growing need for industrial gases in industries such as manufacturing, medical care, electronics, and food & beverage. This demand is being driven by rising industrialization, urbanization, and the global adoption of new technology.

Furthermore, there is a growing emphasis on sustainable and ecologically friendly solutions, which has led to the creation of green industrial gas production systems and the expansion of renewable energy applications. Furthermore, there is an increasing emphasis on optimizing and digitizing the gas supply chain to improve effectiveness, dependability, and safety.

Moreover, the industry is seeing major expenditures in R&D to create new applications and improve existing ones. In general, these trends are anticipated to keep driving innovation and development in the global industrial gas market in the future.

By type, the oxygen segment held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2032. Oxygen drives the industrial gas market due to its importance in a variety of sectors, notably metal manufacturing, healthcare, and chemicals. It is required for combustion, oxidation, and life-sustaining uses, which drives demand.

By application, the cryogenic segment held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2032. Cryogenics propels the industrial gases industry by producing, storing, and transporting gases at low temperatures, allowing for effective and affordable solutions in a variety of industrial applications such as manufacturing, medical care, and electronics.

By end use industry, the healthcare segment held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2032. Healthcare promotes the industrial gases market because gases including oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide play critical roles in medical procedures such as respiratory treatment, anaesthesia, and sterilization.

Asia-Pacific dominates the industrial gases industry owing to fast industrial development, rising demand from industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, and electronics, as well as government efforts supporting infrastructure development and sustainable industrial practices.
