A little foggy: Improved downstream activity will boost demand while higher energy prices threaten margins

The Oxygen and Hydrogen Gas Manufacturing industry produces gases that are used as inputs in a variety of consumer and industrial products. During this period, demand from highly cyclical markets, such as energy producers, metal and chemical manufacturers sharply declined due to plummeting oil, gas and commodity prices. However, industry revenue is expected to increase modestly in 2017, as rebounding commodity prices and slowly increasing US manufacturing activity will facilitate projected industry revenue growth. In the five years to 2022, industry revenue is projected to increase. Key buying industries' production levels are expected to be in full swing, as an anticipated increase in consumer spending will drive demand for oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen and various industrial gases...purchase to read more.
