DUBLIN, 22 October 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Carbon Capture and Storage – Global Market Trajectory and Analysis” report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

Global carbon capture and storage market to reach 4.9 billion US dollars by 2026

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global carbon capture and storage market is estimated at 2.8 billion US dollars in 2020, is expected to reach a revised size of 4.9 billion US dollars by 2026, with a CAGR of 9.9% over the analysis period.

Pre-combustion, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.1% to reach US $ 4.1 billion at the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, the growth of the Post Combustion segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 11.2% for the next 7 year period. This segment currently represents an 11.3% share of the global carbon capture and storage market.

The post-combustion capture process involves the removal of carbon dioxide from low-pressure flue gases in conventional power plants and other large point sources after the combustion of fossil fuels or other carbonaceous materials such as biomass. . This technology has been widely used to capture carbon dioxide in the food and beverage industry.

The pre-combustion capture technology is more advantageous than the post-combustion technology because the separation of carbon dioxide from hydrogen is much easier than flue gases due to the fact that the partial pressure and the concentration of carbon dioxide are much more higher than in flue gases. The technology expands the options for various gas separation methodologies, which was not previously possible in post-combustion capture processes.

Emerging applications include the incorporation of CO2 into concrete and other building materials; converting carbon to polyurethanes for application in furniture and other materials. Carbon can be used for applications such as improving oil and gas recovery (EOR), extending the economic life of a reservoir.

Carbon capture efforts are further aided by the growing attention of companies to investigate new use cases for captured carbon dioxide. Emerging applications include the incorporation of CO2 into concrete and other building materials; converting carbon to polyurethanes for application in furniture and other materials.

The US market is estimated at $ 1 billion in 2021, when China is expected to reach $ 482 million by 2026

The market for carbon capture and storage in the United States is estimated at US $ 1 billion in 2021. The country currently represents a 33.5% share of the global market. China, the world’s second-largest economy, is expected to reach an estimated market size of 482 million US dollars during the year 2026, with a CAGR of 11.4% throughout the analysis period.

Other notable geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each projects growth of 8.3% and 10.4% respectively during the analysis period. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow by around 8.6% CAGR while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach US $ 546.9 million before the end of the analysis period. In the United States, carbon capture and storage is receiving increasing attention and is set to become one of the major industries in the years to come.

Growth is driven by a progressive policy framework and sustained government support. The 45Q Carbon Monoxide Sequestration Tax Credits represent a progressive CCS-specific incentive globally to promote investment in carbon capture and sequestration.

More than 40 CCS projects have been announced in various European countries, aiming to develop and deploy CCS facilities for a climate neutral Europe. Various countries, such as USA, UK, Norway, Japan, Canada, and Australia, continuously provide financial assistance to Asia Pacific to enable research and development, demonstration and deployment of CCS projects, with preliminary investments focused on emerging economies, such as India, Indonesia, and China.
