Specialty Gases

As Quoted In Canadian Industrial Equipment News

US specialty gas demand will rise 3.5 percent annually through 2013. Manufacturing will remain the largest market while health care grows the fastest. Analytical gases will outpace other applications due to the increasing need to monitor pollutants, maximize production efficiency, monitor product quality, render diagnosis, etc.

This study analyzes the $2.9 billion US specialty gas industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., high purity atmosphere gases, noble gases, carbon gases, halogen gases), market (e.g., manufacturing, electronics) and application.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 22 industry players, including Praxair, Air Products and Chemicals and Air Liquide America.
