The market for industrial gases in the glass industry is estimated to grow from USD 2.57 Billion in 2015 to reach USD 3.49 Billion by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 6.29%. The segments considered for this report are based on type, glass type, function, transportation mode, and region. On the basis of type, hydrogen accounted for the largest market share, in terms of value, while oxygen was the most widely used industrial gas, in terms of volume, in the glass industry. The container glass segment accounted for the largest share of the market, in terms of both, volume and value, among all glass types. The transportation mode segment was dominated by the cylinder & packaged gas distribution. In terms of function, the market is segmented into forming & melting, atmospheric control, finishing & polishing, and others. The final segment, that is, region, consists of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The base year considered for the study is 2014 and the market size is projected from 2015 to 2020.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the market size was achieved through the top-down approach. The total market size of industrial gases was calculated. Accordingly, a certain percentage of the total market was allotted for glass manufacturing. This allotment and calculation were done on the basis of extensive primary interviews and secondary research. Primary research involved in this report includes extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments. These data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments.

The industrial gases in the glass industry is dominated by large players such as Air Products & Chemicals, Inc. (U.S.), The Linde Group (Germany), Praxair, Inc. (U.S.), Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (Japan), and Air Liquide SA (France).
