Carbon Capture, Utilization, And Storage (CCUS) Market Research, 2032

The global carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) market was valued at $3 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $10.3 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 13.3% from 2023 to 2032.

The carbon capture, utilization, and storage market is expanding due to global efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, government initiatives, and increasing demand for CO2-EOR techniques. Technological advancements are also driving offshore oil and gas exploration, promoting gas injection enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques, which use carbon dioxide for crude oil extraction. However, the high cost of carbon capture and storage and decreasing crude oil prices may hinder market growth. However, upcoming projects in Asia-Pacific and Europe and ongoing investments in innovative technologies are expected to provide growth opportunities for market expansion.

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Market

Introduction

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from fuel combustion or industrial processes, the transport of this CO2 via ship or pipeline, and either its use as a resource to create valuable products or services or its permanent storage deep underground in geological formations. CCUS technologies provide the foundation for carbon removal or "negative emissions" when the CO2 comes from bio-based processes or directly from the atmosphere.

Key Takeaways

  • More than 6,765 product literatures, carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) industry releases, annual reports, and other such documents of major industry participants along with authentic industry journals, trade associations' releases, and government websites have been reviewed for generating high-value CCUS industry insights.
  • The study also analyse the patent related to carbon, capture, utlization, and storage technology with respect to each country.
  • The study covers more than 20 countries in terms of value during the forecast period 2022-2032 is covered in the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) market report.

Market Dynamics

The growth of the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) market is primarily driven by a growing focus on reducing CO2 emissions, supporting government initiatives toward reducing CO2 emissions, and increasing demand for CO2-EOR techniques. In addition, rapid industrialization across the globe has led to surge in the emission of CO2. To reduce carbon footprint, governments of various developed and developing countries such as the U.S., the Netherlands, the UK, China, and India are setting up large numbers of CO2 capture and storage plants, which is expected to drive the growth of the market during the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) market forecast period.

In addition, with technological advancements, offshore oil & gas exploration & production activities are increasing, which, in turn, is surging the adoption of gas injection enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques. This includes the use of carbon dioxide for crude oil extraction. Maturing and depleting oil reserves are expected to fuel the adoption of gas injection EOR techniques for both onshore and offshore wells. Hence, this growing demand for CO2 for EOR activities from the oil & gas industry is expected to drive the growth of the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) market during the forecast period.

However, inflated cost of carbon capture and storage and decreasing crude oil prices are expected to hamper the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) market growth. On the contrary, a large number of upcoming projects in Asia-Pacific and Europe and continuous investments in developing innovative capturing technologies enabling economic operations are expected to provide growth opportunities for the expansion of the market during the forecast period.

Segments Overview

The global carbon capture, utilization, and storage market is segmented into service, technology, application, and region. By service, the market is segregated into capture, transportation, utilization, and storage. Depending on technology, it is categorized into pre-combustion capture, oxy-fuel combustion capture, and post-combustion capture. On the basis of application, it is divided into oil & gas, power generation, iron & steel, chemical & petrochemical, cement, and others. Region wise, it is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Market by Technology

The post-combustion capture segment was the major share contributor in 2022. Post-combustion capture refers to the separation of CO2 from flue gas derived from combusting fossil fuels—coal, natural gas, or oil. Power consumption has been growing at a significant rate in developing economies such as China and India driven by industrialization, population growth, and growing urbanization. In China, in 2022, the power generated from coal accounted to 4,732 TWh, up from the previous year’s 4,445 TWh. Coal power generation holds a 66% share of China’s overall energy mix. In China and India, which have accounted for 85% of new coal power capacity since 2005, the number of permits for new coal plants dropped to record lows, but new plants are still in the pipeline. Therefore, increase in power needs in these countries are expected to increase the number of coal-fired power generation plants during the forecast period, which eventually will escalate the adoption of post-combustion carbon capture technology in the coming years. 

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Market by Application

The oil & gas industry was the major share contributor in 2022, as the CCUS process is aiding the oil & gas industry to mitigate the emission of greenhouse gases. Carbon dioxide stored in deep, onshore, or offshore geological formations uses CCUS technologies for enhanced oil recovery that have been developed in the oil & gas industry. In other circumstances, carbon dioxide is not soluble in oil. Here, the injection of carbon dioxide raises the pressure in the reservoir, helping to sweep the oil toward the production well. In Texas (U.S.), for more than three decades carbon dioxide has been used in enhanced oil recovery projects, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) constitutes over 20.0% of total oil production, and some fields achieve recoveries of nearly 70.0%. Kyoto Clean Development Mechanism is mostly applied among the OPEC Nations, which support CCUS technology. For instance, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company achieved dramatic reductions in gas flaring, from about 1,500 million cubic feet per day in the early 1980s to less than 200 million cubic feet per day today. This decreased air pollution and augmented the gas availability for export or internal use.

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Market by Service

The capture service segment accounted for a major share in the carbon capture, utilization, and storage market in 2022. This is attributed to the fact that carbon capture is the first stage of the CCUS process and involves capturing CO2 from its emission source. It can be applied to any large-scale emission process, including coal-fired power generation plants; gas and oil production; and manufacturing industries, such as cement, iron, and steel. The cost of capturing CO2 is heavily dependent on technical, economic, and financial factors associated with the design and operation of the production process, along with the design and operation of the CO2 capture technology.

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Market by Region

North America accounted for a major market share in 2022 owing to surge in demand for clean technology, accompanied by the growing use of CO2 in enhanced oil recovery practices. U.S. uses 75.0% of the global carbon capture capacity in enhanced oil recovery operations, which accounts for nearly 30 metric tons per annum.

The country introduced the FUTURE Act (Furthering Capital Carbon Capture, Utilization, Technology, Underground Storage, and Reduced Emissions) under the 45Q section to provide incentives for capturing carbon dioxide produced from industrial and power sources to be used in enhanced oil recovery. With the development of shale gas techniques and less interest in carbon capturing by the new government, it is expected that the market for CCUS is anticipated to grow at a moderate rate in the country, thereby increasing the market share of North America in the carbon capture, utilization, and storage market.
