Currently valued at around $3.1 billion, the Indian industrial gas industry is estimated to reach $5 billion at a CAGR of 8.58 percent by 2028.

Accomplishments & Future Roadmap
Starting in 2004, over the years, RAPL has come a long way in terms of portfolio expansion and overall growth. The firm initially ventured into the market as a medical gas manufacturer before moving to liquid supply by adopting technological changes, which helped it expand into new territories. While in the beginning, RAPL ignored the industrial market, the pandemic forced the firm to look into it, making the firm one of the leading suppliers of all gases to the need for industrial growth. The firm was associated with the Telangana government in understanding the logistics of oxygen supply during the pandemic.
Over the years, the firm has been providing gases to some of its highly esteemed clientele. Coming to its future roadmaps, RAPL has plans to set up satellite cylinder filling stations in every commercial town of Telangana.
The firm also has plans to set up gas complexes with a storage capacity of 100 tons across the national highways leading to the capital of the state and in important industrial estates, which will help fasten the transportation of all gases to customers. The firm also has plans to expand its business in other states specifically in Vizag, Vijayawada, and Bengaluru. Using his extensive experience and leadership skillsets, Sidhardh has helped Ravindra Group become a well-known brand for medical gases in Hyderabad. Under his tutelage, the firm aims to grow further while achieving its goals in the gas products industry. “As a family-owned business with a rich tradition, we are focused on the future while taking the different conditions in our existing markets into account. Through entrepreneurial flair, farsighted thinking, and the continuous improvement of our processes, we create added value for our customers and so secure our mutual success in the long term.
