He added that due to capacity Declining, substantial price increases can happen at any time. This means that the profits of companies that generate debt will be affected by the economic downturn, but on the other hand, liquidity, air products and New Linde's earnings will increase.
Air Products recently announced that it will increase the price of liquid argon, liquid nitrogen, liquid oxygen and liquid carbon dioxide for North American customers. According to Air Products, the price of helium will also rise based on supply and demand and cost. Campbell said that as prices rise, investment is expected to increase with demand.
