Food Grade Industrial Gases Market by Type (Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, Oxygen), Application (Freezing & Chilling, Packaging, Carbonation), Product Type (Dairy & Frozen Products, Beverages, Meat, Fish & Seafood), & Region - Global Trends & Forecast to 2019
The food-grade industrial gases market is projected to reach $9,108.3 million by 2019, at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2014 to 2019
Food-grade industrial gases are effectively used in the food industry for freezing & chilling, packaging, and carbonation of food products such as dairy & frozen products, beverages, fruits & vegetables, meat, fish & seafood, bakery & confectionery, and convenience foods. Rising consumer demand for packaged foods of good quality, variety, and freshness is driving the market for food-grade industrial gases. Due to this growing demand, packaging technologies such as modified atmospheric packaging and chilling & freezing are increasingly being adopted by food & beverage manufacturers.
Both, bottom-up and top-down approaches were used to derive the size of the food-grade industrial gases market.
The market segments include types, applications, product type and region.
