Cryogenic Tank Market Trends


Growing adoption of cryogenic tanks in the healthcare industry is driving the market growth


One major factor propelling the expansion of the cryogenic cylinder market is the rising demand for cryogenic tanks in the healthcare industry. Medical gases including oxygen, nitrogen, and argon, which are necessary for many medical applications such as respiratory therapy, anesthesia, and other medical operations, are stored and transported in cryogenic tanks. Due to reasons like an aging population, an increase in the cases of chronic diseases, and the demand for increasingly sophisticated medical technologies and treatments, the healthcare sector is expanding globally. As a result, the need for cryogenic tanks is rising along with the demand for medicinal gases. Medical facilities like hospitals and clinics can always get hold of the gases they need thanks to cryogenic tanks, which are used to store and transfer them safely and effectively. Cryogenic tank producers and suppliers are reporting more demand, and analysts anticipate that the market will rise further as the global healthcare industry develops.


The future expansion of the cryogenic vessels market is being considerably aided by the rise in demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG).Natural gas that has been cooled to a liquid state is liquefied natural gas (LNG), which is easier and more secure to transport. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is securely and easily stored and transported in cryogenic tanks from producers to users. For instance, the volume of LNG cargo sent to Europe in 2022 increased by 63%, according to data published in February 2023 by the International Energy Agency (EA), a France-based intergovernmental agency that offers policy advice, analysis, and data on the whole global energy sector. The market for cryogenic tanks will therefore be driven by an increase in demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG).


The liquid hydrogen tanks market's leading trend is technological development. Major players in the cryogenic tank industry are concentrating on employing innovative materials and manufacturing processes to make cryogenic tanks stronger and lighter. For instance, the American airplane manufacturer Boeing created a brand-new liner-free cryogenic fuel tank in February 2022. The new lightweight cryogenic tank uses composite technology to reduce weight and increase payload by 30% for aerospace applications like NASA's space launch system. The composite tank is comparable in size to the fuel tanks envisioned for use in the upper stage of NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, measuring 4.3 meters (14 feet) in diameter. Thus, driving the cryogenic tank market revenue.


Cryogenic Tank Market Segment Insights:


Cryogenic Tank Cryogenic Liquid Insights


The Cryogenic Tank Market segmentation, based on cryogenic liquid, includes Liquid Nitrogen, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Liquid Hydrogen, Liquid Oxygen and Others. The liquid nitrogen category generated the most income. Depending on how much the customer needs, various types of containers are used to transport, store, and handle liquid nitrogen. The cryogenic liquid cylinder, Dewar, and cryogenic storage tank are examples of common container types. In the production of electrical goods, liquid nitrogen is frequently employed.


Cryogenic Tank Raw Material Insights


The Cryogenic Tank Market segmentation, based on raw material includes Steel, Nickel Alloy, and Aluminum Alloy. The steel segment dominated the market because cryogenic fluids are stored and transported at extremely high temperatures and under thermal pressures, steel is able to tolerate these conditions. It is a versatile material for cryogenic tank construction because it has high corrosion resistance and is simple to mould into different sizes and shapes.


Cryogenic Tank Application Insights


The Cryogenic Tank Market segmentation, based on application includes Storage and Transportation. The transportation segment dominated the market. The requirement for cryogenic tanks specifically made for efficient and secure transport is what's causing this increase, which can be ascribed to the rising need for the transportation of liquefied gases like LNG and liquid oxygen for diverse uses. The construction of LNG infrastructure and the expansion of LNG trade on a global scale are also boosting the transportation sector's growth.
