Broadened applications in welding process and powers fuel cell in Qatar should boost the regional market demand

Qatar industrial gas market is projected to register over 6% CAGR between 2022 and 2030. Owing to its use as fuel choice for upper stages of multistage rockets, gases like hydrogen have highest combustion energy as compared to other occurring material in the Qatar region thus supporting the demand for industrial gases. Furthermore, government initiatives in increasing the number of hospitals and care units in the country have led to a consequential upscale in the production and supply of industrial gases for medical applications which will boost the market growth.

Key players in the GCC industrial gas market are Linde, Gulf Cryo, SABIC, SIPCHEM, Air Liquide, Air Products, Abdullah Hashim Industrial Gases, and Buzwair Industrial Gases.

The companies are engaged in extensive research & development to develop innovative products to improve the quality & quantity of poultry meat yield. For instance, In April 2022, SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry announced the completion of purchase of 50 percent stake in Clariant's specialty company Scientific Design, engaged in licensing of high-performance process technologies and catalysts production.

This transaction gives SABIC full ownership of Scientific Design, which is a leading licensor of high-performance process technologies. The acquisition will deepen SABIC’s growth in the Specialties market. Last year, SABIC repositioned its Specialties division as a stand-alone strategic business unit to unlock organic and inorganic growth opportunities that are independent of feedstock dynamics.
