Helium is a chemical element with the atomic number 2 and the atomic symbol He. The following two reports take a closer look at the global helium market.
Helium was first observed on August 18, 1868. However, it wasn't until 1895 when a physicist named Luigi Palmieri detected helium on Earth for the first time. This discovery proved instrumental in the element's utility, paving the groundwork for real-world applications.
Helium has a variety of uses, some of which may surprise you. One of the most well-known applications involves balloons.
Whether it's party balloons, scientific balloons, weather balloons, etc., this gas also balloons to lift high into the atmosphere, which is something that cannot be said for oxygen.
Additionally, helium in a liquid state is an essential component of MRI scanners. MRI scanners produce a significant amount of heat during operation, so much that it can damage the unit. Liquid helium, however, works to cool down the magnetic coils used in MRI scanners; thus, protecting them from costly and catastrophic damage.
Helium is also used to detect leaks. Because it diffuses through solids 300% faster than air, it's commonly used as a tracer gas for detecting leaks in vacuum equipment. Of course, these are just a few of the countless ways in which helium is used. It's a versatile and highly useful element that many businesses rely on.
The Global Helium Gas Market by Manufa… Forecast to 2022 report by The Market Reports offers a professional analysis of the global helium gas market, complete with forecast data through 2022. As explained in the report, helium is found naturally in the Earth's atmosphere with a volume percent of roughly 5.24 x 10-4. When compared to all other elements, helium has the lowest boiling point and melting point. Furthermore, it exists only in gas form except when exposed to extremely cold temperatures.
This report explores the global helium gas market, revealing key information like trends, market size, drivers, challenges, price, cost, figures and more. Using this information, investors and professionals in the helium market can make better decisions.
