Global Industrial Gas Market Overview

Industrial gases are those gaseous materials which are used in some manufacturing purposes of the industry. The principal industrial gases are nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, oxygen, argon, helium and others. It includes an enormous variety of gases and their mixtures that are generally available in cylinders. Various industries producing these types of gases are known as industrial gas industries which supply industrial gases in cylinders or large containers of gases.

Most of the industrial gases are at ambient temperature and pressure which are supplied in the form of compressed gases in cylinders. Various applications of these industrial gases are in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, transportation and various other industries. The oxygen gas is also used for sewage treatment in various sewage treatment plants and clean the water. Additionally, there are various applications of industrial gases such as argon and others in metallurgical industries as welding gases.
