Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Industrial gases are primarily used in petroleum refining, chemical processing and metal manufacturing. They are also employed in the food and beverage, health-care and electronics industries. As a result, the performance of the industry over the five years through 2016-17 largely reflects developments in these industries. Industry participants were hampered by adverse economic conditions at the start of the five-year period, as this had led to weak demand from certain end user industries. This includes the UK steel manufacturing industry, which was adversely affected by lower activity in the construction, transportation and other heavy manufacturing sectors, all of which were affected by the fallout from the economic downturn... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

Given the nature of the product involved, industry participants tend to locate close to their customers. In the case of industrial gases supplied in bulk, transport costs can account for as much as 10% to 20% of the selling price, which effectively means they can only be transported economically within a very limited area. In the case of low-value bulk industrial gases such as oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, economic transportation distances are thought to be approximately 200 kilometres from the production plant. In the case of higher value bulk gases, the distances can be higher. Travelling distance constraints also exist for cylinder gases with shipping distances determined via the ratio between production costs and end customer prices. It .. purchase to read more
