Helium in the 21st Century
1st September 2010
As a by product of natural gas extraction, helium is highly dependent on external influences for its supply.
Industrial gas companies carefully match supply to demand in order to maximise profitability; production is dependent on the demand for natural gas; and sources are located increasingly in difficult regions of the world.
In the 18 months before the 2008 recession, demand for helium across its range of applications was such that the current installed capacity was insufficient to meet that demand, resulting in substantial price increases and supply shortages. The 2008 recession caused a decrease in demand resulting in an improvement in the supply : demand balance.
- What was learned from the shortages of 2006-2007?
- What new applications will consume helium?
- What is the projected growth rate for helium and is there sufficient installed capacity to cope?
- How sensitive is helium to price/volume elasticity?
“Helium – Future Trends and Issues” is an essential tool for anyone interested in acquiring a thorough understanding of the helium industry and its dynamics and is particularly relevant to companies that rely on a dependable supply of helium for their operations and / or for whom helium represents a major cost.
Companies interested in developing a position in the helium supply chain in order to capitalise on the recent increase in helium’s value, such as prospective producers, will also find this study an excellent introduction to the business.
