Acetylene is an alkaline chemical compound soluble in water, chloroform, acetone, and benzene, which is manufactured by mixing water with calcium carbide (CaC2). It is employed as a preservative in processed food and a bleaching agent in paper production. It is also used as an anesthetic agent and an indicator for lung function testing in hospitals. It aids in the synthesis of vitamins A and E and production of various solvents. It is extensively utilized for welding and cutting metal parts in the automotive industry. Apart from this, acetylene is widely used in carburizing steel, manufacturing synthetic rubber, precipitating metals, brazing metals, and producing acrylonitrile.
The increasing demand for acetylene in the automobile industry to manufacture various parts of vehicle represents one of the key factors driving the market. Besides this, there is a rise in the utilization of acetylene in metalworking, aerospace, and chemical industries as it is cost-effective and easily available. This, coupled with the burgeoning chemical industry, is positively influencing the market. In addition, the increasing number of surgeries in hospitals and nursing homes due to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide is contributing to the growth of the market. Apart from this, the escalating demand for steel and iron, as they are recyclable and durable, along with the growing welding activities, is offering a favorable market outlook. Additionally, the rising demand for acetylene in the agricultural industry to enhance nitrogen contents in plants is strengthening the growth of the market. Furthermore, key market players are extensively investing in research and development (R&D) activities to enhance the manufacturing process and improve the quality of acetylene gas. They are also focusing on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to boost overall sales and expand their customer base, which is expected to bolster the growth of the market.
