Noble Gases Market Growth & Trends, Analysis by 2028

The global noble gases market size is expected to reach USD 53.71 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.89% during the forecast period. The surging demand for helium will spur lucrative opportunities for the market during the forecast period, states Fortune Business Insights in a report titled “Noble Gases Market, 2021-2028.” The noble gases market size stood at USD 40.34 billion in 2020.

COVID-19 Impact:

For example, on April 26th, 2021, the Colombian Chamber of Industrial and Medical Gases issued a notice, citing the strain on gas firms to satisfy the oxygen demand. As a consequence, the country’s overall production has surpassed 105 percent of the installed capacity. On the other hand, total consumption increased by 74% from February 2020 to April 2021, from 330 to 575 tonnes per day. The noble gases market regional development was significantly impacted as a result of this move. Furthermore, owing to lockdowns, several major end-use sectors, including electronics, aeronautics, lighting, and healthcare, had to restrict their manufacturing processes, further affecting the market’s performance.

Competitive Landscape:

Companies Focus on Capacity Expansion to Strengthen Position

Because the production of individual gas components from air necessitates large air separation units and a high level of technical expertise, as well as large, specialized state-of-the-art storage units, the market is largely consolidated, with the top ten companies accounting for roughly 70% of the noble gases market Analysis. It now operates in over 78 countries and generates over USD 22 billion in sales. In September 2020, the business bolstered its expertise in extreme cryogenics by purchasing a controlling interest in Cryoconcept.
