Air Separation Plant Market Robust Expansion by Top Key Manufactures, Demand and Supply to 2022

Air Separation Plant Market 2018

Global Air Separation Plant Global Market – Overview
Air separation plants are used to separate the atmospheric air into its various primary components like nitrogen, oxygen, and other inert gases. The most common method for air separation is cryogenic distillation. Cryogenic air separation units (ASUs) are built to provide gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, argon, hydrogen, helium and acetylene. Air separation plant has seen a rise in demand across various industries such as food & beverages, Automotive, paper & pulp, healthcare.

Many industrial gas organizations have commercialized systems that rely mainly on improved lithium-based adsorbents which have greater selectivity and higher mass transfer rates. Moreover, Pressure swing adsorption (PSA) is a well-established gas separation technique in air separation, gas drying, and hydrogen purification separation. Such advanced adsorbents, with a variety of mechanical innovations, such as improved air movers and compression systems and as well as simpler control schemes help in the growth of the market. Moreover, Membrane-based systems are compact and lightweight and this has allowed them to be have an array of useful industrial applications. This advancement in the product innovation & technology have led to the growth of the air separation plant.

The growing demand of industrial and specialty gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, argon, hydrogen, helium and acetylene have led to the growth of air separation in the industry. Specialty Gases represent rare or ultra-high purity gases and all the minor gases which are used in specialized applications and are experiencing high growth due to demand in its key applications like lighting, laser& chemicals in manufacturing, and many more. Moreover, demand from end use industries such as energy, healthcare and electronic are adding to the demand for specialty gases. This increased demand have led to the growth of the market.

Rapid industrialization in emerging economies and rising use of industrial gases in solar PV industry and emerging innovative technologies are expected to fuel the market demand. Nitrogen demand is expanding to enable the production, transport activity much easier. It is widely used in industrial and manufacturing application for chilling, purging and liquefaction of the natural gas, and for inserting the LNG during shipboard transportation. Moreover, it is applied for blending the evaporized LNG stream to meet both pipeline and customer specifications.
