Industrial Gases - Category Spend Analysis

 

According to procurement analysts at SpendEdge, the energy industry as one of the key end-users of industrial gases category. Industrial gases such as hydrogen are used as a source of energy in fuel cells and to improve the cooling performance of utility generators. The global rise in energy requirements is causing a steady increase in demand for industrial gases.

Factors such as increasing population and economic expansion, mainly in developing regions are causing a spike in energy requirements. Industrial gases such as hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen will be highly demanded from the energy sector, where they are used as an energy source to different components of power generating units.

Industrial Gases - Procurement Best Practices

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to negotiate with suppliers for the installation of gas monitoring systems. Since the cylinders used for storage and distribution of industrial gases are often lost or underutilised due to the lack of appropriate monitoring systems, buyers need to negotiate and ensure the inclusion of the necessary monitoring systems.

The use of GPS for location-based identification and RFID tags to ensure the safety of gas cylinders will reduce the risk associated with the procurement of industrial gases. Also, the use of monitoring solutions to measure the level of gas in cylinders also reduce the chances of underutilization.

Industrial Gases - Procurement Challenges

 

The global industrial gases market is monitored and controlled by subjecting processes related to the products to stringent scrutiny to avoid the improper handling of gases. The stringent regulatory landscape increases the complexities associated with the procurement of industrial gases since the compliance to such mandates increases the handling and storage charges. To mitigate this challenge, suppliers need to collaborate with buyers and train workers to ensure the safety of the gases, and in turn, the required compliance to regulations.
