Air Separation Plant Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Air separation plants continue to steadily attract attention in a number of end-use industries owing to the vast rise in essential applications of industrially viable gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, argon, and a variety of rare gases. For instance, the massive rise in demand for oxygen in applications across coal gasification, steel manufacturing and the rising demand for nitrogen for storing petroleum products, in chemical storage tanks, and for packing edible oils so as to protect them from qualitative deterioration due to oxidation are some applications driving the increased need for air separation plants globally which also drive air separation plant market.
Owing to the increased consumption of steel across emerging economies to support the rate of infrastructure development activities, the market for air separation plants is expected to witness expansion at a highly promising pace in the next few years. The green energy industry also looks highly promising for the air separation plant market as some of the world’s leading gas companies have started focusing on investment in alternative energy technologies. Strong economic growth of key emerging economies across Asia Pacific and Latin America and the resultant expansion of the industrial sector in these regions are also expected to promise healthy growth opportunities to the global air separation plant market in the next few years.
However, several key industries employing massive volumes of air and rare gases have underperformed in the past few years, especially across mature markets such as Europe and North America, directly impacting the overall development of the air separation plant market in these regions. The situation is expected to become more promising in the next few years as economies across Europe are steadily picking-up pace, revitalizing the industrial sector.
Air separation plants essentially refer to facilities where atmospheric air is separated into its primary components, mostly nitrogen, hydrogen, and oxygen, and sometimes into rare inert gases such as krypton, argon, xenon, and helium. Considered to be the only viable source for recovering these rare gases and high purity oxygen and nitrogen, air separation plants support the growth of a vast number of industries. The market for air separation plants has witnessed significant growth in the past few years owing to the vast rise in applications and technological advancements in distillation and filtration capabilities.
