Technavio’s chemicals and materials research analysts categorize global industrial gases market for the glass industry into the following segments by gas. They are:
The top three gas segments for the global industrial gases market for the glass industry are discussed below:
Oxygen is crucial for the combustion of various materials. The gas is used to enhance the combustion of steel and iron, non-ferrous metals, concrete, and glass. It is also used in metallurgy, water treatment, food production, and in the paper and pulp industry. Oxygen improves the stability of the processes by maintaining furnace pressure and eliminates regenerator changeover cycles; this also enhances the recyclability of glass.
According to Krithika, a lead industrial gases research analyst from Technavio, “It also reduces footprint and controls emissions, thereby helping glass manufacturers to reduce investments and maintenance costs by eliminating regenerators and recuperates. These crucial functions and advantages of oxygen in glass manufacturing are expected to increase the demand for the gas in the industry in the coming years.”
Nitrogen is mainly used as a reductive gas to eliminate oxidizing agents to prevent oxidation. The gas is used in various applications such as the production of float glass semiconductors, metal treatment, chemical processes, and in various processes in the oil and gas industry.
“Nitrogen or hydrogen atmosphere is used to avoid the oxidation of tin to minimize the tin counts on the glass in the glass forming process. Nitrogen is mostly used in glass forming, bubbling, and surface treatment. The gas enhances the purity levels and optimizes the cost incurred during the production of float glass. Therefore, the demand for nitrogen is expected to grow at a steady rate in the coming years,” says Krithika.
Hydrogen gas is mainly used to create a reductive atmosphere or as an energy carrier in fuel cell applications. It is used in various industrial applications such as metal treatment, food hydrogenation, chemical processes, fuel cell cars, and production of float glass and semiconductors. In the glass industry, hydrogen is widely used for ensuring flawless surface finish with sophisticated flame-based and coating technologies for high-end glass products.
Many vendors are offering a range of pre- and post-mixed flame treatment technologies based on oxygen and hydrogen to meet the rising demand from different applications in the glass industry. The growing use of high-end glass products may also trigger the demand for hydrogen gas in the glass industry during the forecast period.
