Market Overview

The market for helium is expected to register a CAGR of 3.69% during the forecast period of 2019-2024. Major factors driving the market are the increasing consumption of helium in the electronics and semiconductor industry and the growing usage in healthcare system. However, the high cost of the extraction process and the stringent government regulations concerning helium use are likely to hinder the growth of the market studied.

  • Gas phase helium dominated the market in 2018, and it is also projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
  • Development of efficient storage and transport methods for gases is anticipated to provide numerous opportunities over the forecast period.
  • North America dominated the market with the largest consumption, followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe. However, Asia-Pacific is likely to register the highest CAGR through the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Electronics Industry to Drive the Market Growth

  • The electronics and semiconductor industry is a significant consumer of helium. Helium is used as the sleeve in rods that create LCD screens. It is also used as a protective gas for flushing vessels, during the processing of semiconductor chips, and as a cooling gas during the growth of silicon crystals.
  • Helium is also considered vital for the manufacturing of optic fiber cables, as the presence of helium in the atmosphere prevents bubble trapping inside the fiber cables. Hard drives are filled with helium, in order to achieve large amounts of disks and high data storage capacity.
  • Due to the increasing focus on the adoption of small size, the use of semiconductor chips or integrated circuits is increasing at a high rate, not only for the computers and smartphones but also for memory chips and image sensors.
  • The mass production of electronic devices in Taiwan, China, and India is responsible for the high demand for helium in the region. Moreover, the Chinese government is aiming to raise up to USD 31.5 billion, to invest in domestic chip companies, in order to build a world-class semiconductor industry, which is likely to further propel the growth of the helium market.
