Listen to this report overview

The Global Carbon Capture And Sequestration Market was valued at over US$ 2 Bn in 2018 and is projected to reach more than US$ 5.6 Bn by the end of 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.84% in the forecast period.

Increasing efforts by regional governments to mitigate overall carbon emissions and stabilize climate change is set to augment the global market growth. Stringent actions on the operating procedure and emission monitoring of power generation facilities and coal-fired stations have led major companies to install various GHG diminishing facilities.

Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is one of the key technologies which can substantially reduce the carbon footprint from numerous industrial processes like chemicals manufacturing, cement, steel, power generation, and various others. It includes capturing of CO2 from different energy-related or industrial sources, transportation of the captured gas from the source to a target location, and finally the storage of gas in deep reservoirs under the earth surface.

CO2 is generally captured as pure stream from large scale plants that are majorly using pre-combustion, post-combustion, oxyfuel combustion, and other capturing techniques. Natural gas processing facilities aids to store bulk amount of carbon dioxide owing to its increased composition in NG mixtures.

The carbon dioxide that is stored by using carbon capture and sequestration technology is used to finally treated by storing it in underground rock formations typically through Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) process or dedicated storage facilities.

Increasing adoption of environmental policies and laws to curb global carbon footprint has led different countries to focus on carbon capture and sequestration methods for successful reductions. Rising awareness to tackle global climate change and trapping CO2, a major global warming agent, will positively cater to global carbon capture and sequestration market growth.

Rapidly emerging countries will continue to be dependent on fossil fuels to suffice growing industrial infrastructure and therefore has high potential and need to adopt carbon capture and sequestration technologies to maintain low carbon emission. According to the International Energy Agency, in 2016, Asia Pacific CO2 emissions from fuel consumption reached a massive amount of over 17.85 GtCO2 constituting for above 55% of the global discharge.

Stringent government directives to keep a check on overall emissions along with large project pipeline is anticipated to be the key driver for the industry outlook. Private sector investments, along with government support and subsidies, is set to positively affect the global carbon capture and sequestration market revenue.

Various governments and organizations across different regions are offering large grants to promote carbon capture and sequestration deployment and thereby reduce GHG emissions. In December 2018, the USA government announced to reward companies with credits under the 45Q tax credit legislation.

The norm is set to provide US$ 35 per ton of CO2 used for EOR activities, whereas US$ 50 per ton of CO2 will be given dedicated storage facilities. The policy holds a framework to provide a relative level of credits in each operational year by 2026.

Increasing Efforts to Curb GHG Emissions in Emerging Regions Will Propel the Dedicated Storage Growth

Carbon capture and sequestration predominantly use captured gas for enhanced oil recovery and dedicated storage operations. Huge potential for dedicated storage sites across the globe is anticipated to fuel the segment market outlook. These facilities mainly operate in two ways; they deliberately store the captured CO2 either in a deep bedrock geological formation or inject it at deeper depths under the ocean or seafloor. Various observations and models suggest that accumulating carbon dioxide in deep-sea regions could isolate the GHG from the atmosphere for several hundreds of years.

CO2 EOR involves an injection of either pure carbon dioxide or CO2 plus water mixture injection into low-pressure old oil & gas wells to increase the overall production. Rising demand for fossil fuels across different sectors will enhance the global market share globally. EOR activities with high purity CO2 sources can be efficient to successfully develop aged reservoirs and significantly reduce anthropogenic carbon footprint in the developing countries. Greenhouse gas is also used to boost gas as well as coalbed methane production by injecting it in different mixtures in particular type of formation.

Natural Gas Processing Facilities to Dominate the Global Market

Natural gas processing facilities capturing source will dominate the global carbon capture and sequestration market share in terms of volume throughout the forecast timeframe. Natural gas usually contains a large combination of gases including methane, ethane, propane, carbon dioxide, sulfur, nitrogen, and various others. These other gases are present as impurities in the original blend and are subject to treatment under processing facilities for appropriate applications. Increasing production of oil & gas has helped these treating facilities to capture a huge amount of CO2 for carbon capture and sequestration operations. Additionally, the exponential increase in global energy demand, coupled with the setup of large generation facilities, is anticipated to augment power generation segment market size. Power plants emit a huge quantity of GHG emissions globally and therefore, has an enormous untapped potential to incorporate new capturing units. Fertilizer plants produce different products like ammonia & urea and therefore a significant source for GHG emissions globally. Carbon capture and sequestration projects will facilitate to trap up to 95% of the plant’s carbon dioxide and sequester it efficiently in the subsurface aquifer.

Report Coverage

Carbon capture and sequestration systems have different components like a capture (compression and separation), transport, and storage (as per the properties of reservoirs or aquifers). Abundantly present assets for various EOR, and especially storage activities will positively contribute to the global market potential. Trapping of carbon dioxide is primarily done by two processes by carbon capture and sequestration system, namely, pre-combustion and post-combustion methods. Pre combustion is applied to coal-gasification plants by converting solid coal to gaseous fuel or syngas. Targeted CO2 is captured from the syngas before its ignition in the turbines used for electricity generation. Whereas in the post-combustion process is designed to be incorporated after purification through flue gas after its ignition in the power plants. However, difficulty in separation of generated CO2 from a large amount of nitrogen limits the application of carbon capture and sequestration technology. Trapped carbon dioxide is then transported by ships, road tankers, and pipelines to be stored in the specially selected formations generally located thousands of meters below the earth’s surface.
