Industrial nitrogen is obtained in compressed gas or liquid form through the fractional distillation or mechanical separation of air. The product is widely used as a high-pressure gas in the steel industry for laser cutting of steel and other metals. The use of this gas provides a high-quality edge and prevents the corrosion of steel. In addition, it is used in brazing and welding. Moreover, industrial nitrogen finds application in the food & beverage, healthcare, and agrochemicals industries, among others.
Based on process, the Industrial Nitrogen Market has been divided into fractional distillation, membrane separation, and pressure swing adsorption (PSA). The PSA segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. In this process, high pressure is applied so the gases are attracted to solid surfaces called adsorbents. For nitrogen separation, a zeolite bed is used as the adsorbent as it attracts nitrogen more strongly than other gases. The rising demand for the process owing to its low operating cost and high-purity nitrogen production is likely to propel market growth in the years to follow.
Based on end-use industry, the global industrial nitrogen market has been segmented into food & beverage, healthcare, agrochemicals, metal production, automotive, and others. The metal production segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global industrial nitrogen market during the review period. The use of nitrogen in steel production as a high-pressure gas for laser cutting and to prevent the oxidation of steel is likely to boost product demand in the coming years.
