The solid carbon dioxide market was valued at USD 171.5 Mn by 2019. Significant growth in the biopharmaceutical segment for transportation of drug molecules and biological samples primarily drives the solid carbon dioxide market growth. Additionally, increasing demand for frozen food products throughout the globe further accentuates the market growth.

Solid Carbon Dioxide Market

Solid carbon dioxide is popularly known as dry ice due to its dipole moment of zero, non-polar nature, and impressive van der Waals force. It finds a huge application in the pharmaceutical segment owing to its ability to flash freeze biological samples and in the industrial segment for the degassing of flammable vapors from the storage tanks and as a cutting fluid. It needs to be handled very skillfully as prolonged exposure to dry ice usually results in frost bites and hypercapnia.

Segment Analysis

Healthcare is spearheading the application segment for a solid carbon dioxide segment. In the pharmaceutical segment dry ice finds huge applications owing to its ability to transport biological samples (tissues and blood) and temperature sensitive drug molecules. The ergonomic features which render its importance in the healthcare segment are its 3 times refrigeration capacity as compared to water ice, non-toxic nature, odorless, non-flammable, and sublimation without leaving any residue. Food processing will be showcasing exemplary market performance during the forecast period owing to its useful application as blast cleaning which is time efficient and maintains higher standards of hygiene in comparison to the conventional cleaning methods.

Dry ice pellets are presently dominating the type segment for a solid carbon dioxide market. It is widely used in hospitals and academic research institute for small scale storage, delivery purposes and while conducting preclinical trials for drug molecules under investigation. Dry ice slabs are expected to register rampant market growth in the near future on account of its increasing demand from the food processing segment for the preservation and storage of frozen foods which is gaining huge demand throughout the globe due to fluctuating climate affecting the production of dairy, meat, and fisheries etc.

North America is currently representing the largest market share in the geography segment for a solid carbon dioxide market. The existence of a well-developed healthcare segment primarily drives the market growth. A significant increase in the demand for biologics for the treatment of chronic diseases has concomitantly increased the demand for dry ice in the transportation of biological samples further accentuates the market growth in the region. Europe is the second largest regional segment for dry ice primarily due to the flourishing food processing segment in the region. Domicile of major players such as Yara International ASA., Linde Industrial Gases, Air Liquide, Aquila Triventek A/S, Artimpex NV, etc further propels the market growth in the region. The Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing regional segment for the solid carbon dioxide market. Increasing demand for dry ice in the cleaning and disinfecting of medical and industrial equipment determines the market growth in the Asia Pacific region.
