DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The "Acetylene Gas Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global acetylene gas market is currently witnessing stable growth. Acetylene is a colourless combustible gas that is produced through the combination of calcium carbonate and water. It can also be generated using hydrocarbons, such as coal, crude oil and naphtha, and becomes highly explosive when it is liquefied, compressed, heated or mixed with air. This gas is most commonly used as an intermediate for the manufacturing of chemicals and cutting and welding functions in metalworking applications. It is also used for the manufacturing of commercial dry-cell batteries and acetylic alcohols and finds extensive applications across various industries, including chemical, automotive, transportation, aerospace and pharmaceutical.
The market is primarily being driven by the significant growth in the chemical industry, along with rapid industrialization across the globe. Owing to its high flame-temperature properties, acetylene gas is extensively used for various metalworking applications, including oxyacetylene cutting, heat treating, soldering, brazing and welding. In comparison to the traditionally used oxygen-based fuels, the combination of oxyacetylene provides faster piercing and preheating. This offers improved cutting quality, speed and cut initiation time, thereby leading to enhanced efficiency and widespread utilization of the gas across industries. Furthermore, acetylene gas is also utilized for the synthesis of various chemicals, such as acetic anhydride, acetic acid and acetaldehyde. Apart from this, it finds applications in the glass and materials processing industries for carbon coating as it aids in creating lubrication between the material surfaces. Other factors, including extensive research and development (R&D) activities focused on generating the gas from biogas and other bio-based fuels, are also providing a boost to the market growth. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to register a CAGR of around 3% during 2020-2025.
