    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    Forming a small but significant part of Australia's chemical sector, the Industrial Gas Manufacturing industry is involved in the production of organic and inorganic gases used for feedstocks, production inputs and a range of other uses, including health care. In addition to the bulk gases most commonly associated with the industry (oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen and argon), the industry also produces a range of specialty, medical and refrigerant gases.

    Several factors have shaped the industry over the past five years, including the development of new products and technologies, growing environmental concerns and changing demand patterns from key consumer markets...

    Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

    The Australian Industrial Gas Manufacturing industry does not have operations in all states and territories, which reflects the concentrated nature of the industry, in addition to the nature of the product itself. The high capital costs involved in establishing an air separation unit necessitates the need for economies of scale. At the same time, the physical properties of the industrial gases limit the distances over which the products can be transported economically. Often excessively high freight costs can outweigh capital investments costs. In many instances, the demand for oxygen has been the deciding factor, given the higher demand for, and cost of, transporting oxygen relative to its co-products. These co-products are then shipped as required. Acc..
