Global Air Separation Plant Market is valued approximately at USD 4.3 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 4.9% over the forecast period 2021-2027. Air separation plants are often used to separate main components from ambient air, such as oxygen, nitrogen, argon, and other gases. Fractional distillation is the most frequent method for air separation. To extract a single component from ordinary air, commercial methods such as membrane, pressure swing adsorption (PSA), and vacuum pressure swing adsorption (VPSA) are used. High purity oxygen, nitrogen, and argon, used for semiconductor device fabrication, require cryogenic distillation. The market is driven by increased demand for medical oxygen due to COVID-19 and growing demand for industrial gases from dynamic manufacturing sectors. For instance, as per Statista, according to the data from the NGO PATH (as of May 2, 2021), India’s medical oxygen demand had already surpassed 2.3 million standard 7 m cylinders per day, nearly six times that of Brazil, which required roughly 385,000 cylinders per day. Furthermore, growing private players initiatives such as product launches and acquisitions boost the market growth in the forecasting years. For instance, Linde Plc signed a long-term deal with BorsodChem Zrt. for the delivery of nitrogen, oxygen, and compressed air to its Kazincbarcika chemical complex in January 2021, a Hungarian chemical manufacturer and member of the Wanhua Chemical Group. Linde will develop one of Hungary’s largest air separation units, which will be completed by the end of 2021. However, high costs associated with fabrication, component assembly, and operations may impede market growth over the forecast period of 2021-2027.
Geographically, Asia Pacific is dominating the owing to the numerous positive factors such as increasing consumption in countries such as Japan, China and India, and increasing metal production. The Asia Pacific region has the highest production and consumption, as well as one of the world’s largest oil refining capacities. It is also the world’s manufacturing centre, with a variety of heavy machinery and equipment manufacturers.
