European Industrial Gas Summit

A Market Redefined and Re-Emerging

27th April 2021, 0730hrs UTC

Post-Brexit. Post-pandemic. Post-fossil fuels. Post-mergers. These are the talking points that dominate the new business playbook in Europe; the market drivers reshaping and reinvigorating the European industrial scene.

And when gasworld brings its Europe Industrial Gas Summit to the virtual stage this April, these are the searing hot topics that will set the agenda…

From a position of maturity and familiarity, the European industrial gases business has been in the midst of an evolution of its playing field and supply chains. The very face of the market has been redefined in recent years at the hands of the mega-merger of Praxair, Inc. and The Linde Group in 2018/19.

There is also significant change at both an application and operational level, with supply chains evolving and diversifying, while the political landscape has shifted, and Europe is also positioned at the forefront of a deep decarbonisation megatrend loaded with opportunity.

As we look to gradually unlock from the worst effects of a global pandemic that has fundamentally changed how we think and do business, the European gases business is itself redefined and re-emerging.

What better time to re-appraise the European industrial gases business today, where it’s heading, and better understand the challenges and opportunities ahead?
