For the First Half of 2022
All the key players in the gaseous market have increased the prices for bulk industrial gases, including Argon. Presently, the prices for Argon have been hiked around 15%, including the charges for delivery, material handling and other miscellaneous services.
This price increase was in line with the increasing energy and labour costs owing to the surging crude oil and natural gas prices. In the case of Argon, the rising costs of sourcing are also responsible for the price trends to strengthen globally.

Argon is a chemical element in the eighteen group of the periodic table. It is a noble gas, the third most abundant gas in earth's atmosphere, besides Nitrogen and Oxygen. It is an odorless and colorless gas that does not react with other substances, has low thermal conductivity, and forms a few compounds under extreme conditions.
Argon is used whenever an inert atmosphere is required, like during the production of titanium, to shield the weld area, and in incandescent light bulbs to keep the filament from corroding due to oxygen. Argon has also been used as a surgical instrument in the medical field. Argon Plasma Coagulation (APC) is a non-contact technique that uses high-frequency argon plasma stimulation to cauterize surrounding tissues and control bleeding around surgical sites through coagulation.
