Industrial Gases Metals & Metal Fabrication Market worth 47.06 Billion USD by 2020


January 27, 2016

The report "Industrial Gases- Metals & Metal Fabrication Market by Type (Oxygen, Nitrogen, Hydrogen, Others), Function (Metal Manufacturing, Fabrication), Storage (Cylinder, Merchant Liquid, Tonnage), End-use (Metal, Automotive, Aerospace, Others) - Forecast to 2020", The global industrial gases in metals & metal fabrication market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.07% from 2015 to reach USD 47.06 Billion by 2020.

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for around 43.4% of the total market share in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America in 2014. Rapid industrialization in emerging economies such as China and India as well as growth in the metal & manufacturing industry and increase in production in industries such as automotive and heavy machinery will support the growth of the market over the forecast period 2015—2020. However, environmental impact caused due to metals & metal fabrication industries forces governing authorities to apply stringent regulation which may limit the growth of the market.

Cylinder & packaged distribution to dominate the market during the forecast period

The cylinder & packaged distribution segment accounted for the largest share of 44.80% of the total industrial gases in metals & metal fabrication market in 2014. It is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 6.04% from 2015 to 2020 as a result of factors such as inexpensiveness, easy transportation, stringent safety protocols, and compatibility with all types of industrial gases.

Metal industry projected to lead the market in terms of end-use application.

On the basis of end-use applications, the industrial gases in metals & metal fabrication market is segmented into metal industry, automotive, aerospace & defense, rail & shipping, heavy machinery, and others. Metal industry accounted for the largest share of 34.27% of the overall industrial gases in metals & metal fabrication market in 2014.
