Global Acetylene Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031
The global acetylene market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~2% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing use of acetylene for metal work, owing to the high temperature of the gas. Acetylene, or scientifically known as, ethyne, has a carbon triple bond, which provides it the highest flame temperature. The high temperature makes acetylene ideal for metallurgical works, which, in turn, is estimated to boost the market growth. In addition to this, the growth of the automotive market is directly anticipated to encourage the growth of the market, as acetylene is used for making the body and other metallic parts of the vehicles.
Moreover, increasing sale of cars globally, is foreseen to boost the market growth. According to the data by the International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2019, 25 million cars were sold in China, 17 million in United States, 17 million in European Union, and 21 million cars were sold in the rest of the world.
The market is segmented by application into welding, chemical raw materials, portable lighting, and others, out of which, the welding segment is anticipated to hold the notable share in the global acetylene market over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the high flame temperature of acetylene. Combustion of acetylene with oxygen produces a flame of over 3,330 degree Celsius, which is used for welding and other metal works, which is estimated to boost the segment growth.
