Aluminium cylinders are widely in use due to their lesser weight, anti-corrosive nature and ease of transportation as compared to carbon alloy steel cylinders. Also, aluminium cylinders are better looking than alloy steel cylinders. The various types of aluminium cylinders available on the market include high pressure cylinders, disposable/low pressure cylinders, and those used in various applications, including medical, homecare, scuba, beverages, fire extinguishers, sports and fitness, tracking, paintball, IABP machine, soda machine, etc. Such applications are expected to drive the global aluminium cylinder market. North America, Europe and Asia are likely to be key markets.
In 2021, Metal Impact East LLC, a subsidiary of Chicago, US-based Thunderbird Manufacturing LLC, acquired the Luxfer Holdings PLC aluminium gas cylinders division. According to Metal Impact, the addition of the manufacturing operations of Luxfer in Graham, North Carolina, and its range of products and services, made it a premier aluminium gas cylinder supplier to the medical and healthcare industries. The acquisition would more than double the cylinder capacity and manufacturing footprint of Metal Impact, assisting a more expansive line of cylinders for a wide range of markets, including food and beverage, fire extinguishing, industrial, performance racing, SCUBA, and life support. Such developments are expected to drive the global aluminium cylinder market. Metal Impact is a provider of aluminium and steel impact extrusions and gas cylinders.
In 2021, Luxfer announced the strategic acquisition of Structural Composites Industries (SCI); SCI strengthened Luxfer’s composite cylinder offering and aligned with recent investments to increase its alternative fuel abilities to take advantage of the growing compressed natural gas (CNG) and Hydrogen opportunities. The SCI team would join the Luxfer Gas Cylinder’s team located in Riverside, CA, and complement Luxfer’s additional sites in UK, Canada and China. For Luxfer, the addition of SCI significantly enhanced their product offering and fortified their capabilities in alternative fuels and aerospace applications. With the intent to divest the majority of Luxfer’s aluminium operations and the announcement of SCI’s acquisition, Luxfer sought to actively reshape its portfolio and open new avenues of growth.
In 2022, Worthington Industries announced a price increase on steel and aluminium cylinders.
