The article emphasizes the preparedness of gas companies worldwide to expand their businesses. In 2005, industrial gas companies worldwide netted sales increased by 10% from 2004. The market for industrial gases is a global business but, owing to the high distribution costs, it has a local character. Analysts no longer expect big acquisition deals, but smaller activities with a takeover value of less than $200 million are still likely.
