Executive Summary
Industrial gases, also referred to as bulk gases or commodity gases, are produced in large quantities by companies for use in a variety of industrial manufacturing processes. The industrial gas industry comprises primarily manufacturers of industrial organic and inorganic gases in compressed, liquid, and solid forms. The global industrial gas market is forecast to grow at a compound annual rate of 4.44% between 2017 and 2021. This growth is being driven by global economic growth, particularly in emerging economies, and by the increased use of gas in the healthcare industry.

Asia-Pacific's industrial gas market is the largest in the world at 35.2% of the total market, worth $25.8 billion. Asia-Pacific's market size can be attributed to the presence of a large number of electronic manufacturing companies in the region, especially in countries such as China, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. North America's industrial gas market is the second largest in the world with a 31.0% share of the market, worth $22.7 billion.

Nitrogen is the largest segment in the global industrial gas market at 28% of the market, worth $20.67 billion. Nitrogen has the largest share due to the presence of established pharmaceutical, food processing and general manufacturing industries that use nitrogen widely in their manufacturing.
The manufacturing industry is the largest end user in the global industrial gas market with a 27% share of the market, worth $19.54 billion. This is mainly due to the demand for industrial gases such as nitrogen and hydrogen.

The global industrial gas market is benefitting from consumer demand for freshness in food products. Health-conscious consumers are demanding fewer additives and safer and fresher food products, which increases the demand for industrial gases which can sometimes be used in place of chemical ingredients. As a result the food and beverage industry is buying increasing quantities of food-grade industrial gases which are used to chill, freeze, and package a variety of food products such as dairy and frozen products, beverages, fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, seafood, convenience foods, bakery and confectionery. Food-grade gases are high purity gases that comply with food grade standards; they include nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide.

The global industrial gas market is highly concentrated. The L'Air Liquide S.A was the largest competitor with 23.7% of the market, followed by The Linde Group, Praxair Inc., Air Products and Chemicals Inc., and Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corp. Global industrial gas mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are expected to increase in the coming years, building on strong activity in 2015 and 2016 where companies like Air Liquide, Praxair acquired other companies. For example, Air Liquide acquired Air Gas for $10.3 billion in May 2016. Industrial gas companies are continuing to realign their portfolios and pursue profitable inorganic growth opportunities. In addition, M&A interest is likely to be fueled by stronger corporate balance sheets, liquid debt markets, and continued favorable interest rates.
