Market Research Reports | Q1 2024 | Report ID: BR03909 | No.of Pages : 154

About the Report

The South American cryogenic equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.36% from 2023 to 2028, with USD 0.98 billion in 2022 and USD 1.34 billion in 2028. Several key factors within the region propel this growth, including the increasing demand for cryogenic gases in vital sectors like metal processing and chemicals, the rising utilization of cryogens in healthcare applications, the burgeoning food and beverage industry, and the escalating need for natural gas and its associated infrastructure.


Despite these promising prospects, the market faces challenges due to economic slowdowns and the presence of alternative technologies, such as pressure swing adsorption (PSA), for industrial gas production. These factors act as constraints on the overall growth trajectory of the South American cryogenic equipment market.


Market Definition

Cryogenic equipment refers to a specialized category of industrial apparatus designed to handle and manipulate materials at extremely low temperatures, typically below -150 degrees Celsius (-238 degrees Fahrenheit). These specialized devices are crucial for the storage, transportation, and processing of gases and other substances in their cryogenic states, where materials exhibit unique physical properties.


Cryogenic equipment includes a range of components, such as storage tanks, valves, pumps, and heat exchangers, specifically engineered to withstand and efficiently operate in the extreme cold conditions associated with cryogenic processes. Industries such as healthcare, aerospace, manufacturing, and energy rely on cryogenic equipment to handle and manage liquefied gases, offering solutions for various applications such as medical gas storage, industrial gas production, and the transport of liquefied natural gas (LNG).



Rising Use of Natural Gas in the Region

Similar to the global cryogenic equipment market, the South American cryogenic equipment market experiences a significant boost due to the rising demand for natural gas, driven by the inherent variability in hydropower production and the adaptability of natural gas as a compelling, cost-effective, and reliable alternative. Natural gas plays a crucial role in the region's decarbonization efforts, increasingly recognized as a transitional or bridge fuel in the broader energy transition.


This escalating demand for natural gas stands out as one of the primary drivers propelling the South American cryogenic equipment market forward. Particularly prominent in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector, cryogenic technology plays a critical role in tandem with the evolving energy landscape in the region.


Although South America remains a net importer of LNG, it boasts substantial domestic natural gas production to meet local demand. The locally extracted natural gas undergoes processing in dedicated plants within individual countries. In this intricate process, cryogenic equipment assumes an indispensable role, serving as a major component in the processing and transformation of natural gas into viable energy sources.


The demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Latin America is growing due to ESG initiatives and diesel displacement, with major economies like Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia committing to integrating more natural gas into their energy systems.


According to the Latin America Energy Association, natural gas will constitute between 21% and 30% of Latin America's total primary energy supply, emphasizing its enduring importance in the region's energy mix.


South America Natural Gas Consumption Forecast


The rising usage of natural gas is expected to significantly increase the demand for LNG cryogenic equipment used in LNG liquefaction, regasification, and transportation.
