The booming diversification in the application of oil & gas in the forthcoming years creates a considerable need for CO2 for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) techniques to increase oil production from mature fields. Other commercial applications, including metal fabrication, cooling, fire suppression, and stimulating plant growth in greenhouses, also generate the demand for CO2. As the manufacturing & construction industries are expanding worldwide, the demand for metal fabrication will likely increase and, consequently, elevate the requirement for CO2 in welding over the coming years.
The emergence of new methods to put CO2 to use in different industries & purposes, such as the production of fuels, chemicals & building materials, etc., is augmenting the popularity of carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS), which involves technologies like direct air capture. Governments, private parties, and investors are escalating their support by funding start-ups involved in the CCUS from diverse sectors like fuels & chemicals, building materials, etc. For instance,
Hence, massive investments in the exploration & development of new CCUS technologies owing to their immense potential to reduce carbon emissions from various end-user industries like refining, petrochemicals, power generation, metal, & cement manufacturing are set to create new directions for the carbon dioxide market in the years to come.
Global Carbon Dioxide Market Driver
Soaring Usage of Carbon Dioxide in the Food & Beverage Industry: Over the past few years, the global population has significantly risen and has surged the requirements for food & beverage products. According to the United Nations, in 2022, the world population reached approximately 8 billion. Moreover, developing countries in the Asia-Pacific, like India, China, etc., are undergoing urbanization & industrialization due to the evolution plans such as China's 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-2025), India's Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) 2.0, etc., laid down by their governments.
As a result, the working population in these countries is significantly increasing. According to the Ministry of State Labour, in 2021, the employment rate in India increased to approximately 52.9%. This increase in the office-going population is resulting in a rise in demand for processed food & beverage products across the globe. Thus, to cater to this rising demand for food & beverages, the companies such as Coca-Cola, Goya Foods, etc., are expanding their food production capacity by setting up manufacturing units in different countries.
The CO2 is essential in food & beverage manufacturing units for various purposes such as carbonation, Freezing & Cooling, pH control, etc. Thus, the setup of new food & beverage manufacturing units across the globe to cater to the growing demand for food & beverage is driving the Global Carbon Dioxide Market.
Global Carbon Dioxide Market Growth Opportunity
Increasing Focus on Therapeutic Drug Manufacturing - The global pharmaceutical sector has experienced significant growth and attention from several governments after COVID-19. According to the World Health Organization, more than 13 million individuals lost their lives during the pandemic (2020-2021). Therefore, the pandemic served as an opportunity for governments across the North America & Asia-Pacific region, primarily in the countries like the US, India, China, Mexico, etc., to expand their pharmaceutical sector and establish drug manufacturing units to enhance the healthcare infrastructure & save the lives of millions of individuals. This has resulted in governments worldwide laying down initiatives & schemes, such as India's Production Linked Incentive (PLI), The US' National Adaptive Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Initiative, and others to increase their drug manufacturing capabilities and boost the establishment of pharmaceutical companies within their countries.
CO2 is essential in therapeutic drug manufacturing units for various purposes like solvent extraction, pH control & buffering, etc. Thus, the increasing establishment of pharmaceutical manufacturing units across the globe would elevate the Global Carbon Dioxide Market growth in the forthcoming years.
Global Carbon Dioxide Market Challenge
Conveyance & Distribution Related Concerns - Carbon Dioxide is generally available in the liquid & gaseous state. However, its transportation occurs in the gaseous state due to atmospheric conditions. CO2 requires specialized handling, infrastructure, and safety measures during transportation, which further increases transportation costs, making it costlier for end-users. Moreover, CO2 pipelines have specific design considerations due to the corrosive nature of CO2 and the need to prevent leaks or seepage during transport. Hence, the lack of infrastructure, like the unavailability of the transportation pipeline in low-developed economies, complicates CO2 transportation, resulting in end-users seeking alternatives like nitrogen and, in turn, impeding the growth of the Global Carbon Dioxide Market.
Global Carbon Dioxide Market Trends
Growing Greenhouse & Hydroponics Cultivation - Controlled agricultural practices, such as greenhouse and hydroponic cultivation, are gradually gaining traction in the Middle Eastern, North American & Asia-Pacific countries such as the US, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, & Singapore, among others, to enhance food security. Moreover, the increasing infrastructural development activities in these countries to upgrade the life of residents and attract foreign investments have decreased the arable land for cultivation. As a result, the governments in these regions are increasingly approving the establishment of hydroponic farms & vertical farms to increase crop yields.
Since these farms require CO2 to provide a suitable environment for plant growth & productivity, the rapidly increasing controlled agricultural practices are driving the demand for CO2. Moreover, many governments have laid down several plans & initiatives, such as the UAE’s National Food Security 2051, India’s National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA), Mexico’s MasAgro Initiative, etc., for encouraging sustainable agricultural practices, further increasing the number of greenhouse & hydroponic farms and, in turn, amplifying the demand for CO2 in the forthcoming years.
