Dry ice is solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2) that does not leave any residue. It is an odourless, colourless, slightly acidic, and non-flammable material. Dry ice is produced by compressing and cooling CO2 gaseous in extreme high pressures, which produce liquid CO2 at the initial stage. The liquid form goes through pressurized expansion to obtain dry ice and then compressed by a hydraulic press into convenient dry ice pellets, slices, or blocks. It has low temperature of approximately -75°C when compared with the water based ice. Further, in the process of sublimation, when dry ice is heated, it directly changes into a gas instead of melting in the form of liquid. It is mainly used in refrigeration to keep the frozen and medical product cold.

The rising preference of dry ice over water-based ice has led to fuel the lucrative growth in the dry ice market. The dry ice has a low temperature than water-based ice. When it is heated, it directly changes into the gas and does not leave any residue. The dry ice is cost-effective and has non-combustible and non-toxic properties. It is also used to make carbonated drinks and soda. These benefits of dry ice increase its use over water-based ice in the food preservation, machine blast cleaning, pharmaceutical, and entertainment industry. Hence, rising demand for dry ice from various industries due to its advantages over water-based ice will surge the market during the forecast period.
