The primary components of atmospheric air such as nitrogen, oxygen, and other inert gases, are separated using air separation plants. Cryogenic distillation is the most common method used for air separation. Cryogenic Air Separation Units (ASUs) are built to provide gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, argon, hydrogen, helium and acetylene. Air separation plants have witnessed a rise in demand across various industries such as food & beverages, Automotive, paper & pulp, healthcare.
Many industrial gas organizations have commercialized systems that rely, mainly on improved lithium-based adsorbents, which have a higher selectivity and higher mass transfer rates. Moreover, Pressure swing adsorption (PSA) is a well-established gas separation technique, used in air separation, gas drying, and hydrogen purification separation. Such advanced adsorbents with elaborate mechanical innovation, such as improved air movers and compression systems and simpler control schemes, help in the growth of the market. In addition to this, Membrane-based systems are compact and lightweight. This has given them an array of useful industrial applications.
Air separation plant is used to separate the atmospheric air into nitrogen, oxygen, and other gases. The cost involved acts as a barrier for the market. The cost of electricity is the largest operating cost incurred in air separation plants. Electric motors used for compression equipment, heaters, and cooling system also add to the cost incurred. Moreover, the high cost of laser and infrared technology-based devices for operation tracking in plants for more accurate and efficient solutions, will increase the overall cost of the air separation plants.
Non-cryogenic air separation technologies such as Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA), Vacuum Pressure Swing Adsorption (VPSA) and Membrane Gas Permeation are some of the technologies based on compressed air which utilize large vessels and leads to higher costs.
Global air separation plant market that was valued at USD 4,132 million in 2015, is expected to reach USD 5,852.7 million by 2022.
