In 2021 we’ve seen a new era for the industrial gases business get firmly underway. We’ve seen the recovery from truly challenging and unprecedented times; we’ve seen the industry harnessing its unparalleled expertise to realise its integral role in the clean energies transition; likewise, the strategic movements of various stakeholders have been observed as they find their own position in this transition.

We’ve also chronicled new application and technology developments in some of the most traditional areas of the industry – think air gases and additive manufacturing (AM), for example, or the continued growth in gasification technologies.
