The demand for convenience food is increasing globally due to changing lifestyles, busy schedules, and urbanization. Food grade gases are widely used in the production of convenience foods such as ready-to-eat meals, snacks, and frozen food, as they help in extending the shelf life of these products. Food grade gases are used to preserve the quality and freshness of food products during transportation and storage, thereby ensuring food security.
Technological advancements in the food and beverage industry have led to the development of new and innovative products that require the use of food grade gases. For instance, the use of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and controlled atmosphere storage (CAS) requires the use of gases such as nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Food safety regulations are becoming increasingly stringent worldwide, and food grade gases are used to meet these regulations. For instance, carbon dioxide is used in meat processing to control the growth of bacteria and to prevent spoilage.
The main factor contributing to this restraint is the high cost associated with the production and transportation of food grade gases. The production of these gases requires specialized equipment and facilities, which can be expensive to maintain and operate. The regulatory environment surrounding the use of food grade gases is becoming increasingly stringent, which can lead to additional costs and delays in the approval process. This can impact the availability and affordability of food grade gases, especially for smaller businesses and developing countries.
The Global Food Grade Gases Market share is classified into type, application, and industry.
- The nitrogen segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global food grade gases market over the forecast period.
Based on the type, the global food grade gases market is divided into oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. Among these, the nitrogen segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global food grade gases market over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed due to the nitrogen is used in the food industry for various applications such as chilling, freezing, and purging. It helps to preserve the freshness and quality of food products by reducing the amount of oxygen present in the food packaging. The nitrogen segment of the food grade gases market is expected to witness steady growth due to the increasing demand for frozen food products and carbonated beverages.
- The freezing & chilling segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global food grade gases market over the projected period.
Based on the application, the global food grade gases market is divided into packaging, freezing & chilling, and carbonation. Among these, the freezing & chilling segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global food grade gases market over the projected period. The growth can be attributed due to the food grade gases that are widely used in food freezing and chilling processes. Gases such as nitrogen and carbon dioxide are used to create a controlled atmosphere that can help to maintain the texture, flavor, and nutritional value of the food product. This process is especially important for frozen foods, as it helps to prevent freezer burn and other quality issues that can occur during long-term storage.
- The beverages segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global food grade gases market over the forecast period.
On the basis of the industry, the global food grade gases market is segmented into beverages, dairy & frozen products, meat, poultry & seafood. Among these, the beverages segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global food grade gases market over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed due to the food grade gases such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen are extensively used in the production of carbonated beverages, such as soft drinks, beer, and sparkling wine. Carbon dioxide is also used to create a protective atmosphere during bottling and canning of non-carbonated beverages. It is also used in the production of fruit juices and other beverages, where it helps to maintain the flavor and freshness of the product.
