Global Carbon Capture and Sequestration Market: Overview
Carbon capture and sequestration also known as carbon capture and storage is the process where waste carbon dioxide is captured from big point sources, which can include power plants of fossil fuels, is carried to a storage site, and are deposited in such a way that they do not enter into the atmosphere, usually an underground geological formation. The basic objective is preventing a large amount of carbon dioxide being emitted into the atmosphere which is normally from the use of fossil fuels in the generation of power from different industries.
Global Carbon Capture and Sequestration Market: Segmentation
The global carbon capture and sequestration market are segmented into service, application, and region. On the basis of the service, the market is segregated into capture, sequestration, and transport. The capture segment is further sub-segmented based on the capture techniques which include oxy-fuel, pre-combustion, and post-combustion. Based on the application, the global market is categorized into agricultural, EOR process, industrial, pressurized containers and healthcare. Regionally, the market is diversified into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, and Rest of the World.
Global Carbon Capture and Sequestration Market: Growth Factors
Carbon capture is the best option for lowering the emissions of carbon to control the air pollution as it is a very cost effective method. This factor has positively affected the market growth of carbon capture and sequestration. The growing demand for extracting oil and gas from the low-permeability and unconventional reserves such as carbonate traps and tight stands are positively increasing the demand for the market. The carbon dioxide that is discharged during the stage of manufacturing is utilized by technologies thus anticipating growth prospects in the coming years. Thus the carbon applications for EOR will dominate the carbon capture and sequestration market. The factors that are hampering the market growth include the various regulatory problems and the low adoption rate owing to the high initial and operating costs.
Global Carbon Capture and Sequestration Market: Regional Analysis
The region that dominates the carbon capture and sequestration market is the North America. The US region has the largest market share in the global market. The European market for carbon capture and sequestration and also anticipates growing significantly in the coming years, owing to the supporting government regulations. The strategies for the energy portfolio and also the emission standards adopted by European Union nations will act as a favorable factor for the market growth. Nations such as UK, Netherlands, and Norway are making attractive investments in the carbon technology boosting the market growth. The Asia Pacific region is also contributing its share to the market growth owing to the growing manufacturing industries in the countries such as China, Japan, and India.
