Helium Crises Explained – Part 3

Helium’s “REAL” usage in the 21st Century

In the last article I wrote about what’s the next BIG thing for Helium usage. There was a clue in the previous blog post. Did you look for it? Did you find it?

If not, you won’t believe it when I tell you…it is flat screen monitors, TV’s and LCD’s!!

Asian countries producing LCD panels of any kind use helium in every single screen. Asia now accounts for 25% of all helium usage in the world today primarily because of LCD technology.

So, the business of balloons commands only a very, very small portion of the helium pie. Prices will unfortunately continue to rise until probably 2012. True to what we were told, Life O’ The Party has experienced three price increases so far in the past year. The last increase on February 1, 2012 was a 60% increase! The hope is there will be a leveling off of supply and demand issues and the costs will stabilize by then.

Can we be sure? No, not any more sure than we can be of oil and farming and insurance and housing prices and the mortgage crisis and, and, and – it goes on and on for all of us.

However, we at Life O’ The Party are doing everything we can to minimize your cost to bring you beautiful balloons for décor and gift giving seven days a week.

Thank you very much for your patience, understanding and hopefully appreciation for the global problem we face when providing balloons for you, your family and friends.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me personally.
