The global liquid nitrogen market size reached US$ 18.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the market is expected to reach US$ 25.8 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.89% during 2022-2028.

Liquid nitrogen (LN) is a dry, condensed, scentless, inert and non-combustible cryogenic liquid used for rapid freezing. It is produced in air separation and liquefaction plants through cryogenic distillation and pressure swing adsorption processes and is usually stored in LN dewars, cryogenic liquid cylinders and cryogenic tanks. LN aids in rapid cooling and temporary shrinking of mechanical gears and components during machine assembly for improved intrusion fits. It is also used for cryosurgeries, cryotherapies and cryopreservation procedures to remove decayed tissues, warts, moles, skin tags and pre-cancerous cells in the body. LN also finds extensive applications for the freezing of food and beverages and creating an aesthetic cloud of vapor or fog over dishes in fine-dine restaurants, cafes and hotels.

Liquid Nitrogen Market Trends

The increasing demand for cryogenic liquids for metal fabrication and manufacturing of electronics, healthcare, automotive and lighting systems is one of the key factors driving the market growth. LN is widely used as a coolant to prevent additional heat generation during the grinding process resulting in minimal corrosion and high-quality and uniformly sized ice particles. Moreover, the widespread adoption of LN as an organic additive for the development of generics, therapeutic medicines and active pharmaceutical ingredients is providing a thrust to the market growth. In line with this, significant growth in the food and beverage industry is also favoring the market growth. LN is widely used for rapid cooling freezing of bakery products, meat, poultry, fish, prepared meals, vegetables and fruits while retaining their original color, scent and flavor. Other factors, including rapid industrialization, along with the launch of innovative LN-compatible automobile engines for minimal carbon emissions, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
