Moving Beyond Helium Shortage 4.0

If Helium Shortage 4.0 has come to an end, then what lies ahead for global helium markets and end-users?

Often the biggest challenge when emerging out of any period of market shortage or volatility, is what comes next and how those in the market respond accordingly.

While industry fundamentals point toward plentiful supply in the coming years, there is continuing uncertainty due to the helium business’ exposure to geopolitical events and shifting sanctions that could have a significant impact on the macro outlook.

The impact of new Russian supply, trade sanctions, the continued development of the Chinese market, and increased access to supply for smaller gas companies …all are key considerations as the market moves out of the shadow of constrictions.

Into the spotlight are a range of questions concerning pricing cross-currents, future demand growth, increased regionalisation of the business, and the risk factors that could yet create potential bottlenecks or shortages.

Join gasworld’s annual Helium Super Summit this October to secure all of the insights and connections you need to understand the state-of-play in helium markets in 2024/5 and beyond. Topics covered will include:

  • Supply vs Demand Outlook 2024-2028
  • Update: The Amur Project & Russian Helium Supply
  • Dealing with Trade Restrictions
  • Helium Start-up Activity and the Challenges Faced
  • Helium Markets in China
  • Demand Outlook for Electronics
  • An Informed Vision for the Helium Business Through to 2030


All of these insights and much more besides will be delivered at the ultimate gathering of the helium business, loaded with unrivalled speakers and insights and 2.5 days of quality networking opportunities with all the key stakeholders in the global helium industry.
