Argon Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022

Argon prices remained anchored during H2 2022. Q3 started with a rise while prices started stabilizing by the end of Q4. The third quarter witnessed problems with the production, transport, and storage of Argon which led to the incline in prices. But Q4 started with supply chain restoration and resumption of other industrial activities thereby, stabilizing the price trends. But the demand could not keep up, so the argon prices remained almost stagnant in the latter Q4 H2 2022.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the argon market is expected to rise in the coming future considering the increase in the demand from the downstream industries given the active rise in the applications of argon ranging from filament bulbs to scuba diving.

Argon Price Trend 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.

Production Processes

  • Production of Argon from Atmospheric Air

Argon is industrially extracted from liquid air in a cryogenic air separation unit employing fractional distillation. The atmospheric nitrogen is heated using hot calcium or magnesium and a nitride is formed, leaving behind a small amount of Argon.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
