The event comes at a key time for the European gases industry. On the one hand, Europe is divided: by two industrial gas markets at distinctly different stages of development. On the other, the region is united: in its quest for growth and profitability. Europe has also been gripped by well-documented economic and political uncertainty of late, leading to low growth and investment difficulties.
