The liquid nitrogen market is expected to increase rapidly following the growth in the industrial gas market across the globe. Liquid nitrogen is used as a cryogen when low temperatures are required in manufacturing.
It is widely used in cryotherapies, cryopreservation, and cryosurgeries, to destroy decayed tissues and remove warts, moles, skin tags, and some skin cancers. It is mainly used as a coolant in the shrinking of mechanical gears at machine assembly, making better intrusion fits. Another important end-use sector of liquid nitrogen was in the manufacturing of rubber and plastics, as liquid nitrogen in rubber and plastics production is used as a refrigerant. This function is expected to rise the demand for liquid nitrogen during the forecast period. Factors such as growing industrialisation and the rising medical sector are expected to be the significant growth carriers of the liquid nitrogen market over the next five years.
Coolant is projected to be the most practised function in the liquid nitrogen market as it is utilised in multiple industries such as steel manufacturing and construction, pharma, chemicals, and the healthcare industry. The cylinder and packaged distribution mode is expected to account for the largest market share in the liquid nitrogen segment. Verticals such as tonnage merchant liquid distribution and tonnage distribution will be fundamental growing distribution modes during the forecast period.
