Gases having more than 99.99% concentration are known as High Purity gases. High Purity gases are most commonly used in applications where impurity control is imperative. In high purity gases, the impurity content level is usually below 0.1 ppm. Generally, high purity gases, such as hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, helium, krypton and argon, among others, are classified into four groups i.e. pure gases, hydrocarbon bases gases, rare gases and miscellaneous gases. High purity gases can be manufactured through several manufacturing methods, such as cryogenic-liquefaction & air fractional distillation, pressure swing adsorption using molecular sieves, hydrocarbon steam reforming process and purification of purge gas, among others. High purity gases find applications in analytical studies and pharmaceutical, healthcare and food processing industries, among others. There are many other applications of high purity gases as well. For instance, during the manufacturing of integrated circuits, those high purity gases are used in which the impurity content is less than 1 part in 1000. If the impurity content in gases touches higher levels, then it significantly affects the yield and performance of the integrated circuit. Thus, the demand for high purity gases is high in the semiconductor industry.

Market Dynamics:

The prompt growth of electronics industry coupled with the growing production of semiconductor devices will in turn help to boost the demand for high purity gases. Moreover, given the rising concerns regarding quality of food as well as healthcare products, the demand for high purity gases is expected to increase for food processing and pharmaceutical products. Furthermore, increasing demand for high purity gases from the chemicals and automotive industry in developing and the developed regions will help to drive the market. Apart from this, regulatory restrictions over the use of high purity gases in regions, such as North America and Europe, will hinder the growth of the market. Also, the high cost of manufacturing and fluctuating raw material prices are a major restraining factor responsible for the growth of high purity gases market.
