Opportunities: Increasing Number of New Food & Beverage Product Developments
Consumers are increasingly demanding food products that are healthy, convenient, natural, and sustainable. This has forced food and beverage manufacturers to formulate new and innovative products accordingly. New products, new variety line extensions, new packaging, and new formulations are the marketing strategies adopted by food & beverage manufacturers. As new products are increasingly being launched, the need for packaging and storage of these products increases. The use of food-grade gases will serve as a significant opportunity for manufacturers.
Challenges: Safe & Proper Handling of Food-grade gases
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 are used for this purpose such as bulk containers, cryogenic cylinders, gas cylinders, and glass bottles. All the storage containers require safe and proper handling of the stored gases is essential. This is a major challenge faced by food-grade gases manufacturers, in order to prevent hazard and environment risks associated with these food-grade gases.
By application, the freezing & chilling segment is projected to account for the largest share in the food-grade gases market
The food industry’s key challenges are to avoid microbial deterioration and increase the shelf life of products. One of the most effective methods of fighting these microbes is by chilling & freezing the products. When the temperature is lowered below the freezing point, the growth of micro-organisms decreases rapidly. Freezing slows down many enzymatic processes as well, thereby making food products more shelf stable. Chilling a food product reduces the risk of bacterial growth. The freezing and chilling of foods are essential to prevent spoilage. As manufacturers, consumers, and retailers demand these technologies, the use of food-grade gases is expected to increase.
North America is estimated to dominate the food-grade gases market, in terms of value, in 2020
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.
