The Cryogenic Tanks Market is driven by rising demand for liquefied natural gas

Cryogenic tanks are vacuum or fully insulated vessels used to store liquefied gases at very low temperatures, typically below -150°C (-238°F). They find applications across industries such as energy & power, chemicals, metallurgy, electronics, healthcare, and biomedical for storing liquefied gases such as hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, argon, and natural gas. Cryogenic tanks offer advantages such as preventing boil-off, minimizing heat transfer to the product contained inside, easy transport of liquefied gases over long distances, and maintaining the cryogenic state of gases. The increasing consumption of liquefied natural gas and rising need for its storage and transportation is driving significant demand for cryogenic tanks.

The global Cryogenic Tanks Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6.51 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.0% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends in the cryogenic tanks market is the rising demand for small-scale portable cryogenic tanks for diverse applications. Small cryogenic tanks ranging from 250 liters to 1,000 liters are witnessing growing adoption for on-site storage of liquefied gases in various industries including healthcare, metallurgy, general manufacturing, and food & beverage. Their compact size and mobility enable flexible on-demand gas supply. Manufacturers are developing advanced insulation methods to reduce heat transfer and increase payload capacity of portable cryogenic tanks. This is expected to further drive the demand. Another major trend is the use of composite cryogenic tanks made of carbon fiber or fiberglass composite materials. Composite tanks offer benefits such as lightweight, corrosion resistance, durability, and ability to withstand high pressures.
