Helium Price Rises Jan 2019
Air Products Explanation
Media continues to report that the helium market is once again in a period where global demand is outstripping available supply. Over recent years, Air Products has taken strategic steps to diversify its helium sourcing portfolio to give us the most robust helium supply chain out of all the major industrial gas players. Despite these efforts we continue to face pressures from the market in terms of availability and cost.
Air Products is committed to remaining the global number one supplier of Helium. We continue to have the capability to supply but recognise the need to seek new sources of Helium and supporting infrastructure to meet our customer demand. This necessitates the need to access molecules from more distant and costly sources around the globe
