Competitive vendor landscape
The global industrial gases market for glass industry is consolidated due to the presence of many vendors. The market is controlled by the dominant vendors of industrial gases. Growing industrialization in developing regions has stimulated the entry and growth of domestic vendors, with a majority of them being concentrated around the APAC region. Vendors in the market space compete based on customer-centrism, price, quality and performance, and innovation.
According to Ajay Adikhari, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on industrial gases, “The large players in the market are keenly focusing on M&As to shield themselves from the threat of rivalry. Although small and medium-scale vendors are coming up with innovative capabilities, the prominent players are expected to have a strong foothold.”
