Overview of the global acetylene gas market

The global acetylene gas market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of close to 3% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for acetylene from APAC will drive the growth prospects for the global acetylene gas market until the end of 2021. China is the leading country in the manufacturing and industrialization sector and accounts for the maximum consumption share of acetylene. One of the major factors responsible for the growing production of acetylene is the increasing demand for industrial gases in the region. Acetylene is extensively used for the chemical synthesis of various products including plastics. Also, with the increasing disposable income of the middle-class people in China and other countries in APAC, the demand for automobiles, paper, glass, plastics, and chemicals has increased. This increase in the demand for automobiles, paper, glass, plastics, and chemicals will further spur the application of acetylene. In addition, other countries in APAC such as Japan and India are witnessing a high demand for the consumption of acetylene gas from various end-user industries such as automotive, cement, pharmaceuticals, and metal fabrication.

The surge in acetylene application in the plastic industry will drive the growth prospects for the global acetylene gas market in the forthcoming years. The small amount of acetylene generated during the steam cracking process is used for the production of ethylene, which produces a variety of polyethylene plastic products. Also, the polymerization of acetylene to produce polyvinyl chloride and polyvinylidene difluoride is useful for the production of plastic. Furthermore, when acetylene is hydrogenated to produce ethylene, it is polymerized to form polyethylene, which is a popular plastic.

Market outlook of the helium gas market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the helium gas market to grow at a CAGR of around 9% during the forecast period. The rapid growth of the R&D sector is driving the growth of this market. Helium is used as a cryogenic coolant in most of the cutting edge energy and defense research. Liquid helium is also being used widely in quantum mechanics to study the atomic structure and behavior of subatomic particles such as neutrons, protons, and electrons. Such increasing research efforts is contributing to the demand for helium.

The stringent regulatory regime and safety regulations pose a challenge for the growth of the market. Industrial gasses from production to storage, transportation and distribution, are subjected to intense regulatory scrutiny on account of the potential hazards they may cause due to leakage or accidents. For instance, OSHA and EPA specify mandates for carriage and storage of cryogenic liquids in all storage forms. Compliance with these standards has been increasing the handling cost for the vendors.

Segmentation by application and analysis of - health care, aerostatics, transportation, electronics

Healthcare accounted for 28% of the consumption share during 2014. Helium is used in MRI, NMR machines and nuclear reactors as a coolant due to its chemical inertness and high specific heat. Helium is used in these machines to cool the low-temperature superconducting materials and magnets to temperatures close to absolute zero, which in turn enables the creation of powerful magnetic fields. They are also used for fixed and floating offshore oil rigs. The report predicts this segment to grow at a rate of 7% during the forecast period.

About neon gas
Neon, a noble gas, is a chemical element that is found to exhibit chemical inertness on account of its unique atomic structure. This highly unreactive gas has a wide range of usage in non-reactive applications. Neon, although abundant in the universe, is sparse in earth’s atmosphere and is often produced through fractional distillation of liquefied air. The gas has superior refrigerating capacity than helium and is a preferred refrigerant in certain applications. Neon in mixture with other gases is widely used in lighting and imaging applications. For instance, helium-neon lasers that are indispensable in various industrial and imaging applications use a mixture of helium and neon in the ratio 10:1.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global neon gas market to grow at a CAGR of 4.99% by revenue and 9.98% by volume over the period 2014-2019.

About Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide is a versatile oxidizing chemical that is used in applications from household disinfection to industrial chemical synthesis. The chemical is usually manufactured using the anthraquinone process. It is more viscous than water and colorless when it is in diluted form. High concentrations of hydrogen peroxide is harmful, hence, it is generally diluted with water and then used in various end use industries like F&B, textiles and laundry, chemical synthesis, wastewater treatment, pulp and paper, oil and gas, electronics, and healthcare. A major share of hydrogen peroxide is consumed in the synthesis of propylene oxide that, in turn, is used for polyurethane production.
