The global carbon credit trading platform market is expected to reach USD 317 million by 2027 from an estimated USD 106 million in 2022, at a CAGR of 24.4% from 2022 to 2027. Increasing carbon emissions are the primary driver for global warming across the globe. Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions have increased since the pre-industrial era, driven largely by economic and population growth, and are now higher than ever. There is an urgent need to minimize the impact of carbon emissions on the environment. Producers must reverse and diminish carbon emissions by investing in renewable energies, securing new uses of CO2, adopting carbon capture technologies, and using carbon offset/carbon credits. This will drive the market for carbon credit trading platforms as there will be an increase in the exchange and trading of these carbon credits.
