Food Grade Gases Market Growth and Forecast (2020-2025):

The global Food Grade Gases Market size was worth US$ 6.4 billion in 2020, and it is estimated to value about US$ 8.1 billion by the end of 2025, rising at an annual compound rate of 3.2% between 2020 and 2025. Interest in tasty foods and carbonated beverages has increased, so the food-grade gas market is accelerating.

Food Grade Gases Market

Market Overview:

Food grade gas is used as a processing aid or as an additive to food quality standards. Food grade gas plays a vital role in the food packaging process and general preservation. This gas is primarily used to freeze, refrigerate, grind, and pack a variety of products, including bakery and dairy products, beverages, meat and poultry, fruits and vegetables, and ready meals. However, food-grade gases as additives or processing aids can be used in the food industry. The gases that are often used in industries are nitrogen, carbon dioxide and oxygen. The change in consumer diet patterns, which focus more on the consumption of fresh foods irrelevant to climate and location, is majorly driving the business for these gases. Besides, the rise in intake of packaged meals like vegetables, fruits, meat and seafood, dairy products, dairy products, carbonated drinks and others is also boosting this market boom.

Recent Developments in Food Grade Gases Industry:

  • Linde AG converged with Praxair, Inc in October 2018 to form Linde Plc. This merger will further enhance the market position of the two players in the food-grade gas market.
  • In July 2018, together with CVC Capital Partners Fund VII ("CVC"), the Messer Group carried out the majority of Linde's gas operations in North America and specific activities in South America.
  • May 2017, Praxair Inc. (USA) promoted XactCO2, the initial response of renewable carbonated beverages to restaurants and bars.
  • In September 2017, Air Products and Chemicals (USA) introduced the Freshline LIN-IS framework. It uses liquid nitrogen to provide fast and accurate temperature control to the blender or blender/processor and enables food manufacturers to improve the processing speed and quality of items.
  • Air Products & Chemicals in November 2018 collaborated with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology to perform researches and introduce innovative technologies to the market.

Food Grade Gases Market Growth:

In the process of submitting new items to the food business and developing them in packages, there are development requirements for food-grade gas for various end uses.


The increasing market demand for certain gases is expected to accelerate the growth of the global food grade gases market in the near future due to the latest advances in refrigeration and packaging technology. Year-round consumer demand for fresh vegetables and food is supposed to fuel the food-grade gas market. Food-grade gases are widely used in a variety of applications, such as long shelf life, freezing and refrigeration, preservation and carbonation, and various beverage containers. The rise in healthy foods is a major driving force in the global market for food-grade gases. Customers need natural foods without preservatives or less processing without chemical treatment. This again promotes the growth of the worldwide market. Food grade gas is used for other applications such as cooling, coagulation, pooling, extended usability, protection, and carbonation of other beverages. Expanding wellness awareness is a real driving force for gas use, as shoppers must have food additives or non-critical additives, no prescription drugs, fewer preparations and a generic structure. as

Food manufacturers and merchants, from the assembly stage to the utilization organization, require customers to use food-grade gas to meet their food safety needs directly. In the food and beverage industry, new grouping systems, such as changes in air grouping and stock control, depend on the expansion of requests for food-grade gas in the estimation period. The global market for food-grade industrial gas is assumed to witness growth during the outlook period as its application in the fields of packaging and storage of frozen foods, fruits, vegetables, beverages, meat, seafood, prepared foods, bakeries and confectioneries. Growing consumer concerns about contamination and the safety of nutritional products have forced companies to implement food-grade gases in packaging and storage applications.

As Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) increases in importance to control microbial growth in the food and beverage industry, market demand is presumed to grow in the near future. The need for food-grade gas is likely to increase as the distribution of NSF H1 standards increases in the food and beverage industry. It is expected that awareness of aroma and texture preservation will increase and shelf life in the nutrition industry will have a positive impact on the market during the forecast period.


Food grade gas must be controllable and readily available at the point of use, and the means of delivery are critical to ensure system compatibility and safe transportation. Various storage containers are used for this purpose, such as bulk containers, cryogenic cylinders, gas cylinders, and glass bottles (ampoules). Other specific boxes include leaky tubes and secure delivery systems. Bulk gas can be supplied through stationary cylinders, horizontally mounted tube trailers or pipelines. Stationary cylinders must be periodically replenished from gas lines or cryogenic tank trailers. Cryogenic tank trailers can deliver liquid gas in bulk. Pipeline delivery is only available near gas production plants. In all these cases, the safe and proper management of the stored gas is essential. Food grade gas manufacturers must avoid the environmental hazards and dangers associated with the transportation, storage, and moving of highly toxic gases.
