Acetylene is also known as ethyne. It is highly flammable gas obtained from calcium carbide. Acetylene is manufactured by partial combustion of methane. Acetylene gas is also obtained as byproduct of reaction between calcium carbide and water. Acetylene gas is also produced from hydrocarbon sources such as naphtha, crude oil and coal among others. It is also obtained as a side product in the ethylene stream from cracking of hydrocarbons. Acetylene is colorless and extremely explosive. Acetylene is mainly consumed as a fuel and chemical building block. It is also used in welding and metal cutting and many other brazing applications.

Acetylene market is primarily driven by strong demand from China. China accounted for large volume consumption of acetylene. Strong industrial growth in China has been resulted into rapid growth of acetylene in China. Acetylene is primarily used as chemical building block in the manufacture of 1,4-butanediol (BDO). Acetylene is also used in the manufacturing of other acetylenic chemicals such as vinyl ethers, other acetylenic alcohols, N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone, butynediol. These chemicals have wide ranging applications in different industries such as automotive, pharmaceuticals, etc. Strong growth prospectus of these end user industries in China is expected to drive demand for acetylene in China. However, volatile raw material prices are expected to be the major concern for the industry participants. Secondly, rising environmental concerns owing to emission of hazardous chemicals during manufacturing of acetylene is expected to limit the growth of this industry. However, an effort towards development of bio-based acetylene gas is expected to provide growth opportunity to industry participants.

Acetylene Gas Market
Chemicals, welding & cutting and other applications are key application markets for the acetylene. Demand for acetylene in chemicals production was dominating the global acetylene market with over 60% share in total volume consumption in 2014. 1,4- butanediol accounted for over 90% share in total volume consumed among all chemicals in 2014. 1,4-butanediol market is fueled by strong demand for downstream intermediates (tetrahydrofuran for spandex and gamma-butyrolactone for pyrrolidones). Polybutylene terephthalate-based engineering resins for automotive applications remains a major BDO driver. Welding and cutting was the second largest segment for acetylene gas in 2014.
    
Asia Pacific region was the leading regional market for acetylene gas with over 85% share in total volume consumed in 2014. China accounted for huge share of Asia Pacific. Growing industrial investments in the emerging economies like China is a major driving factor that contributed to the growth of acetylene gas market in the region. North America, Europe, Latin America and Middle East & Africa accounted for very small share of the global acetylene market.

Some of the key industry participants in global acetylene market include, Air Products and Chemicals Inc., Linde AG, Airgas, Toho Acetylene, Xinju Chemicals, Gulf Cyro, BASF, the Dow Company, SINOPEC, ILMO, Xinlong Group, Lutianhua, Ho Tung Chemicals, Markor, JinHong Gas, Jiuce Grou and Praxair Inc. among several others.
