Major players are extensively spending in research & development in order to improve eco-friendliness and long-term production methods.

Through technological improvements in production technology, such as shorter production time and high-quality gas production, xenon gas suppliers can gain significant momentum from end-use customers in order to meet their on-site expectations.

Because of its multifaceted value, xenon gas is gaining favor in a variety of end-use sectors. The electronics and semiconductor industry is a fast-moving market. The semiconductor industry uses xenon gas largely in the etching process. It contributes to the project's total cost reduction. With the advancement of technology, demand for xenon-based barcode scanners and laser-operated sensors has grown.

Xenon gas is supplied in seamless steel or aluminum cylinders. These cylinders are lightweight and easy to transport, making them ideal for use in a variety of industries. Liquid xenon gas is also available, which makes it easy to store and transport.

“Xenon Gas Popular in Spacecraft Missions”

Noble gases are commonly employed in spacecraft propulsion in aerospace and aviation industries. These inert gasses work well as a propellant for electric ion propulsion technology, which is gaining popularity in the satellite sector.

Electric propulsion systems used in space travel employ xenon as a fuel. Xenon, which is easily ionized and has a high atomic mass, is the most-used propellant in ion propulsion. This produces a continuous stream of ions that gently propel a spacecraft to high speeds while using very little fuel, making it an excellent choice for long-range missions.

It also helps reduce the weight of the satellite, which is beneficial for any space mission. As such, this xenon gas aspect enables the spacecraft to carry a larger payload.

“Technological Advancements in Healthcare Sector Promoting Xenon Gas Demand”

On a global scale, the elderly population has been rapidly increasing. To balance the conditions of healthcare systems, governments throughout the world have been investing considerable sums in improving healthcare services as well as enabling 100 percent FDI in the medical device sector.

In the healthcare industry, industrial gases are employed for respiratory, cryogenic, and surgical purposes. As such, industrial gases such as xenon gas are expected to be in high demand over the coming years.

Category-wise Insights

Which is the Most Preferred Supply Mode for Xenon Gas?

Transportation of bulk quantities of xenon gas through long distances is usually accomplished through tanks. Compressed or liquefied gas is filled in tanks to ensure proper supply. However, on-site supply using pipelines and other means is employed for industrial applications for continuous supply.

On the other hand, xenon gas cylinders are the most preferred supply mode. More than 43% of xenon gas produced across the globe is supplied using cylinders. High mobility of cylinders is compelling manufacturers to package xenon gas in cylinders for a variety of applications, including healthcare, electronics, and others.

Which End-use Industries are Driving Most Growth of the Xenon Gas Market?

Owing to its wide range of applications, xenon gas serves various end-use industries such as healthcare, aerospace & aircraft, automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, manufacturing processes, construction, and a few others.

Among the various end-use industries, aerospace & aircraft is the largest consumer of xenon gas owing to its extensive use in satellite propulsion. Xenon gas is used to increase the payload capacity of a spacecraft, which is crucial factor for this industry. Growth in the number of space missions and rising trend of attaining leading positions in space among various nations are expected to drive the consumption of xenon gas over the forecast period.

Considering this factor, Persistence Market Research is projecting xenon gas consumption in the aerospace and aircraft industry to increase at a CAGR of 4.6% over the assessment period of 2022-2032.

Did COVID-19 Dent the Sales Prospects of Xenon Gas?

Due to hampered demand from end-use industries, the global xenon gas market underwent a big dip in 2020, but is expected to recoup fast following the pandemic. COVID-19 has had a detrimental impact on all countries throughout the world, resulting in a negative impact on the global economy. Most countries impacted by the pandemic were forced to impose shutdowns, impacting their industrial and commercial activities.

Supply chains and shipping were hampered by COVID-19, resulting in a drop in xenon gas sales. Many production plants were shut, causing supply and demand to be impeded. Prices rose as a result of unit closures and transportation limitations. As a result, the entire market saw a decrease in consumption, although it is predicted to expand steadily in the near future.

Competitive Landscape

The global market for xenon gas is a highly consolidated space where key players account for a majority of the market share. Key xenon gas manufacturers are laying emphasis on research & development to discover new applications to increase their sales.

Small- and medium-sized xenon gas providers are engaged in strengthening their market presence through strategic collaborations and mergers with leading players for overall development.
