(US), SOL Group (Italy), Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (Japan), Wesfarmers Limited (Australia), Massy Group (Spain), and Parker Hannifin GmbH (Germany).

On the basis of type, the global food-grade gases market has been segmented into nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide segment is projected to hold dominance in the global food-grade gases market during the forecast years, due to it's cooling and refrigeration properties. High application of carbon dioxide in various carbonated, non-alcoholic, and alcoholic drinks is, coupled with high adoption of the gas for Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is further anticipated to propel the growth of carbon dioxide segment in the forthcoming years.

On the basis of application, the global food-grade gases market has been segmented into freezing & chilling, packaging, and carbonation. Among these, the freezing & chilling segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period, as it is one of the widely adopted methods to preserve food products and avoid microbial growth within them. Freezing & chilling can effectively slow down the enzymatic procedures, hence extending the shelf-life of food and beverage products.

Regional Analysis:

North America currently holds the major market share and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period, owing to higher consumption of packaged foods, carbonated beverages, and seafood & poultry products in the region. High demand and consumption of frozen products in developed regions such as North America and Europe, coupled with the presence of highly-organized cold chain infrastructure and food & beverage retail industry in these regions is projected to contribute in further boosting the growth of food-grade gases market of the aforementioned regions.
