Rare gases are the group of gases that include helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, and radon, also known as inert noble gases. The gases are stable, inflammable, colorless, non-reactive, and heavy gases, hence known as noble gases. These gases have applications in producing power engines and window insulation. These gases are used as a source of the ion beams to clean, cut, and wield materials due to their high ionization properties. Metallurgical processes, discharge tubes, electric light bulbs, and transistors all use rare gases because of their ability to make an atmosphere that is not reactive.
There is more demand for rare gases on the market because the industries that use them are growing. Demand for rare gases is rising because more people want new building codes that save energy.
The rare gases market faced a significant impact due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the initial phase of the pandemic. The nationwide lockdown across leading countries and halted operations in manufacturing, construction, and electronic industries had negatively impacted the demand for rare gases. The disruptions and supply and distribution chains have resulted in a decline in demand for the rare gases in the electronic, construction, aerospace, transport, and manufacturing industry. The emergence of Covid-19 had provided growth opportunities in the healthcare industry. The increasing demand from the healthcare industry is driving the demand for noble gases in the Covid-19 pandemic. The increasing investments in the healthcare industry by leading economies across the globe are estimated to bolster the growth opportunities for the rare gases market. This trend of an upsurge in demand from the medical field is leading to the setup of new gas manufacturing facilities by manufacturers to meet the market demand.
The major factors driving the market growth of rare gases are the increasing demand for rare gases for lightning and laser applications and the exponential rise in demand from the electronic industry. The increasing use of noble gases in industries such as energy-efficient lighting, laser technologies, the semiconductor industry, window insulation, and electronics is driving up demand for rare gases. The non-reactive property of rare gases is increasing the application of rare gases in oxidative and reactive environments in end-user industries. The rapidly growing urbanization and construction industry are contributing to the higher demand for rare gases. Rising fuel prices are driving up demand for rare gases. In addition to this, the rare gas market is witnessing an upsurge in demand owing to the growing demand for new energy-efficient codes. The growing applications of noble gases in the automotive and transport industries and the healthcare industry are also driving the market demand. The lower labor costs associated with the utilization of rare gases are driving the market demand.

The Helium segment held a share of around 35.79% in 2020. This is attributable to the high demand for helium in the healthcare industry. The properties of helium, like non-toxic, colorless, odorless, and non-corrosive, are increasing the applications of helium in the medical industry. The property of having the lowest boiling point makes it suitable for application in superconductivity in nuclear magnetic resonance, magnetic resonance imaging, and others. In the medical industry, helium gas is increasingly being used in ophthalmic surgeries, cosmetic surgery, and plasma coagulators. The use of helium in surgery enhances visualization by clearing the blood and other fluids by the gas flow. Also, the helium gas flow eliminates the minute electric fluctuations that create complications in the surgery.
Followed by helium, argon gas holds the largest market share owing to its extensive application in industries. Argon is used as a protective gas in arc welding, a carrier gas in chromatography, a filling mixture for filament lamps, a protective agent in heat treatment industries, and a thermal insulator in multi-pane windows.
The healthcare industry segment will grow at a CAGR of over 8.7% from 2021 to 2028. This is because doctors are using more rare gases in surgeries and the healthcare industry is getting better at using technology. The rare gases are highly compliant to pharmacopeia standards and hence are increasingly used in the pharmaceutical industry. Helium gas is most in demand in the healthcare industry because it is used to treat asthma flare-ups, post-extubation strider, upper airway obstruction after ophthalmic and cosmetic surgery, and as a plasma coagulator, among other things.
The pharmaceutical and medical industries are focused on patient safety and, hence, they are replacing nitrous oxide with xenon as an anesthetic to reduce the side effect of nausea. The rising applications of noble gases in analytical processes are estimated to drive the growth of the healthcare segment in the forecast period. The electronic industry is the second-largest market shareholder, followed by the healthcare industry, owing to the increasing use of laser gas mixtures in semiconductor devices.
