(Food-Beverage-News.Com, July 28, 2020 ) The global food-grade gases market is estimated to be valued at USD 5.9 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 8.1 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2018 to 2023. The growing demand for convenience food products and carbonated beverages have significantly fueled the market for food-grade gases. Further, with the introduction of new products in the food industry and advancements in packaging technologies, there has been a growing need for food-grade gases for various end-uses.
Increasing demand from developing economies such as India and China will provide growth opportunity.
Significant opportunities for the food-grade gases market are present in developing economies such as China, India, and Latin American countries. A major factor fueling the demand for food-grade gases is the increasing consumer demand for chilled and frozen foods, which are becoming popular with the younger generation in emerging economies. The rise in middle-class population, rapid urbanization, increased spending power, and the increase in the number of working women have also spurred the demand for chilled & frozen foods. Food & beverage manufacturers are tapping into these markets due to the growing demand for processed foods, propelled by changing lifestyles of consumers who prefer convenience foods, availability of abundant raw material, cheap labor, governmental support to set up processing units for SMEs, and lower tariff duty. This growth is also fueled by new legislation in the retail environment, which gives foreign investors and multinational retail chains access to these markets. These retail chains have organized distribution across these markets, which provides opportunities for setting up food & beverage industries here. The rising importance given to food safety and quality of processed foods by the governments in these countries has increased the need to prevent the deterioration of food with the use of proper packaging technology and investment in refrigerated storage facilities.
Safe and proper handling of food grade gases is a major challenge.
Food-grade gases must be controlled and readily available at the point of use, and the means of delivery is critically important to ensure system compatibility and safe transportation. A variety of storage containers such as bulk containers, cryogenic cylinders, gas cylinders, and glass bottles (ampules) are used for this purpose. Other specific containers include permeation tubes and safe delivery systems. Bulk gases can be supplied by stationary cylinders, horizontally mounted tube trailers, or pipelines. The stationary cylinder must be refilled periodically from a gas line or cryogenic tank trailer. Cryogenic tank trailers can deliver liquid gas in the bulk form. Pipeline delivery is only available in areas near a gas production plant. In all these cases, safe and proper handling of the stored gases is essential. It is a challenge for food-grade gas manufacturers to prevent hazards and environmental risks associated with transporting, storing, and delivering highly toxic gases.
North America is estimated to dominate the food grade gases market, in terms of value, in 2018
The microbrewery culture is also on the rise in the North American market. There are multiple microbreweries present in the region. These microbreweries require carbon dioxide for beer dispensing. Also, the North American soft drinks market is one of the largest, with the presence of all the big brands such as Coca-Cola and PepsiCo. The soft drinks industry is one of the largest users of food-grade carbon dioxide for the carbonation of beverages.
The large beverage industry and rising trends of microbreweries create a huge demand for carbon dioxide in the North American region, with the US being the largest and fastest growing market. Also, because of the presence of highly organized retail chains and cold chain infrastructure, the North American market holds the largest market share in the food-grade gases market.
