Food Grade Gases Market Outlook - 2026

The global food grade gases market size was valued at $6.4 billion in 2018, and is estimated to reach $8.1 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 3.2%. Food grade gases are used as a processing aid or as an additive to match the food quality standard. Food grade gases play a significant role throughout the food packaging process and entire preservation. These gases are majorly used to freeze, chill, grind, and package a variety of products, which include bakery & dairy items, beverages, meat & poultry, fruits & vegetables, and prepared meals. 

The food industry is facing tremendous pressure to get products marketed instantly, securely, and in the best possible condition. Furthermore, key players operating in the food industry are investing heavily in high-tech food preservation solutions for enhancing the shelf-life, and nutritive value of food products. In addition, players across the supply chain, including manufacturers, logistics, and processors are leveraging new technologies to reduce food waste and to allow larger volumes of food exports. 

Food Grade Gases Market

Moreover, a number of different freezing and chilling systems are available in the market for food preservation. In addition, the global food grade gases market growth is driven by increase in adoption of food grade gases in the food industry to freeze food products before packaging. Carbon dioxide and nitrogen are the key cryogenic agents, which help in freezing and chilling applications.

Food transportation, storage, and production are having stringent regulations and standards. The governing bodies of food production such as the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Food Organization are routinely tightening the rules and regulations related to food grade gases, thereby restricting the growth of the market. On the contrary, continuous investment for upgrading the high-tech food preservation technology is anticipated to augment the market growth rate of food grade gases market. 

The global food grade gases market is segmented on the basis of type, application, end user and region. Based on type, the market is classified into Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, and Others. By application, the market is further sub-segmented into Freezing & Chilling and Packaging & Carbonation. By end user the market is divided into Beverages, Meat & Seafood, and Packaged Products. Based on region, the market is analyzed across North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, Spain, UK, Italy, France, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, Australia, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Brazil, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and rest of LAMEA).

On the basis of type, the carbon dioxide segment led the food grade gases market share 2018, and is expected to retain its dominance during the food grade gases market forecast. This is attributed to the fact that carbon dioxide is added in a number of soft drinks to give fizz and enhance their taste. Moreover, wines and beers are carbonated using CO2 gas, which fuels the growth of the segment. In addition, it gives effervescence, which helps to lift the aroma of beer Furthermore, it is used in water treatment to neutralize alkaline water. Liquid carbon dioxide is further used in the food industry for freezing poultry, meats, fruits, and vegetables.

Carbon Dioxide segments dominates the global Food Grade Gases Market and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period.

On the basis of application, the packaging & carbonation segment dominated the market in 2018. This is attributed to the fact that the gas is inert in nature, which protects the integrity of the packaged goods, thus preventing unwanted chemical reactions such as oxidation or food spoilage. Moreover, the trend of using modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) is increasing, as it helps in blanketing food with food grade nitrogen to increase the shelf life of fresh food products. In addition, MAP helps in prolonging the shelf life of food by eliminating oxygen and replacing it by nitrogen.
