Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the global industrial gases market is dominated by a few major players who hold more than two-thirds of the market share. L'Air Liquide held more than one-fifth market share in 2015. Air Products and Chemicals, Linde, Praxair, Taiyo Nippon Sanso (TNS), Air Gas, and Matheson tri-Gas are the other major players in the market.

“In Asia, emerging economies including India and China will provide growth prospects to the market. The rising competition among Inox Air Products, Praxair, Linde, and other local and major players is leading to significant price reductions of the industrial gases in India,” says Chandrakumar Badala Jaganathan, a lead analyst at Technavio for specialty chemicals research.
