gasworld’s Business Analyst, James Barr, recently discussed his findings at the company’s Europe Industrial Gas Conference that took place in May, 2015. At the event, Barr gave firm encouragement about the growth potential in East and West Europe, concluding that the gases industry “needs to work and be innovative at carving out growth in the years ahead.”

Barr said, “The high-growth markets of Eastern Europe offer a wealth of opportunities for new companies to enter these markets. Much of the existing capacity will soon need replacing and the potential for captive-to-onsite conversion is impressive.”
