概要

世界のアルゴンガスの市場規模は、2023年の81億2,000万米ドルから2031年までに134億4,000万米ドルに達し、2024年~2031年の予測期間にCAGRで6.5%の成長が見込まれています。冶金産業の収益拡大が市場成長を後押ししています。

アルゴンガス産業におけるアジア太平洋の優位性は、もう1つの成長促進要因として作用しています。例えば、国際自動車工業連合会(OICA)によると、2022年のアジア太平洋の自動車生産は7%の成長を記録しました。

慢性疾患の流行、先進の医療施設の開発、医療機器に関する近年の技術革新は、医療産業の成長を加速させる重要な変数の一部です。医療産業の拡大に伴い、アルゴンガスは手術器具に使用されるためその需要が高まっており、市場の収益拡大が加速しています。さらに、世界レベルでの冶金産業の成長は、工業製品に対する需要の増加、3Dプリンティングと積層造形の採用拡大、持続可能なコスト削減、技術の進歩といった主な要因によるものです。このように、アルゴンガスは金属の製造や加工に利用されるため、冶金産業がアルゴンガスの需要を高めており、市場成長を促進しています。

さらに、新しいアルゴンガス製造施設の開発に向けた近年の投資が、予測期間中の市場成長に有利な成長可能性を生み出す見込みです。例えば、 Air Water Inc.の子会社であるAir Water Americaは、ニューヨーク州ロチェスターに空気分離装置を建設し、アルゴンを含む工業用ガスの製造から販売までのガス供給ビジネスの展開を計画しています。2024年11月に着工し、2025年9月に経営を開始する計画です。この施設は240トン/日の製造能力を持ち、グループにとって北米初のガス製造拠点となります。しかし、アルゴンガスの代替となるさまざまな製品の利用可能性が、市場成長の主な抑制要因となっています。

活況を呈する冶金産業が市場成長を後押し

建築、建設、自動車、航空宇宙、海事、工業製品などのさまざまな最終用途産業における鉄鋼の急速な採用が、鉄鋼産業の力強い成長の主な促進要因となっています。

例えば、世界鉄鋼協会(WSA)が近年発表したデータによると、2022年の粗鋼生産は世界全体で18億8,500万トンでした。粗鋼生産の上位5市場は、中国、インド、日本、米国、ロシアで、それぞれ10億1,800万トン、1億2,530万トン、8,920万トン、8,050万トン、7,150万トンです。アルゴンガスは製造プロセスで重要な役割を果たし、さまざまな金属加工工程に保護雰囲気を提供し、最終製品の品質に寄与することから、活況を呈する冶金部門がアルゴンガスの需要を促進しています。この決定要因が市場成長を促進しています。

世界のアルゴンガス市場におけるアジア太平洋の大きなシェア

アジア太平洋は急速な工業化を経験しており、アルゴンガスを含む工業用ガスの需要の増加につながっています。さらに、電子、製造、エネルギーなどの部門の成長が、同地域のアルゴンガス需要を促進しています。同様に、アジア太平洋における都市化の進行とインフラの成長は、アルゴンガス市場に新たな機会を生み出しています。

例えば、米国地質調査所(USGS)が発表した近年の統計によると、2021年のベトナムのチタン生産は12万2,000トンで、2022年に16万トンとなり、前年比成長率は31.1%でした。また、インドの鉄鋼生産は2021年に78千トンでしたが、2022年に8万3,000トンに達し、年間成長率は6.4%でした。以後、鉄鋼、チタンなどの冶金関連製品の生産の増加がアジア太平洋のアルゴンガス需要に拍車をかけ、同地域の市場成長をさらに増幅させています。

COVID-19の影響

2020年に急増するCOVID-19患者を抑制するため、北米、欧州、アジア太平洋を含むさまざまな地域で厳格な指令が実施されました。自動車、冶金、建設向けの主要な製造ユニットが稼働を停止したため、アルゴンガスのサプライチェーンが混乱しました。2021年4月に発表された世界鉄鋼協会の短期の見通しでは、2020年の世界の鉄鋼消費は0.2%減少し、減少率がもっとも大きかったのは北米、EU、英国、アフリカでした。従って、最終用途産業の減収が2020年のアルゴンガス市場の成長を抑制しました。

しかし逆に、医療施設の需要は2020年に飛躍的に増加し、市場の当該セグメントの収益成長を押し上げました。さらに2020年末、各国政府が工業生産活動を促進する積極的な施策を実施し、アルゴンガス市場を大幅に後押ししました。
