Industrial Nitrogen Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research

Industrial Nitrogen Market: Summary

The Global Industrial Nitrogen Market is estimated to reach USD 21 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 5.9 %, , states forencis research (FSR).

Nitrogen is a nonmetal with no characteristic color, odor, taste and is inflammable, soluble in water under normal conditions. It is abundantly present in the surrounding air (around 78%) and acts as a crucial element for survival for all living organisms. Nitrogen is the staple component in the manufacturing sector for packaging, blanketing, removing and stirring chemicals or metals, chemical handling and shipping. In addition, nitrogen is used to extinguish fire, pressurize devices and for freezing soil.  Owing to these uses, it is used across various industries, to name a few, mining, pharmaceutical, healthcare, food and beverage, electronics, among others.

Industrial Nitrogen Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Growing Demand for Nitrogen from The Chemical Process Industry

Owing to the wide application area and higher demand from the chemical process industry, industrial nitrogen market is growing at a steady pace. Nitrogen is considered as one of the most crucial gas in the chemical process industry owing to its higher functionality with reliable and convenient production methods. In industrial applications, nitrogen is widely used to purge the tanks, pipe and other industrial equipments. It is also used in blanketing and packaging of gases in order to avoid reaction between oxygen and other chemicals. Also, nitrogen gas finds application in the chemical process industry to remove any contamination from the industrial process by stripping and sparging.

The rising need of nitrogen to carry out the essential chemical process is driving the market growth.

  • Rise In Demand From Food And Beverage Industry

Demand for industrial nitrogen is growing on the grounds of rising demand from the food and beverage sector. Nitrogen is widely used in the food and beverage sector for food aeration, packaging and storage in order to increase the shelf life of the food products. For winemaking, it is used for to prevent oxidation at the time of fermentation, which maintains the quality of the product. Rising demand for nitrogen in the modern food and beverage processing plants owing to the higher demand for preserved and processed food products across the globe is projected to boost the growth of the market in the upcoming future.

Market Restraints:

  • Regulations Imposed on the Industrial Nitrogen

Industrial nitrogen market growth is mainly hampered by the regulation imposed on the nitrogen emission. The nitrogen emission has emerged as an important environmental issue across the globe. Nitrogen is emitted in the form of nitrogen oxides from the power plants and industrial boilers, contributing immensely to air pollution.  Rise in the flow of the reactive nitrogen across various  industries for production of chemicals, fertilizer and other products, escalates the level of nitrogen related emissions. The regulation imposed by the regulatory authorities such as European Union (EU) for environmental protection, could impact the market growth negatively during the forecast period
