Dry Ice is solid form of carbon dioxide. Solid carbon dioxide is characterized by phase change from solid state directly to gaseous state without undergoing change into liquid state with an increase in temperature. As such, it does not lead to any residue post the phase change and hence is rightly termed as Dry ice. Dry ice manufacturing process involves initially compressing and cooling gaseous carbon dioxide to yield liquid carbon dioxide. In the next step, this liquefied carbon dioxide is allowed to undergo expansion following which it is pressurised to yield solid carbon dioxide or dry ice. Dry ice is often used instead of traditional water based ice due to relatively lower temperature(-79 degrees) of dry ice as compared to that of water based ice at the same time it does not melt into a liquid form, rendering it free from waste generation. Moreover, dry ice is non-flammable and non-toxic as opposed to some of the other refrigerants used.
Dry Ice Market: Drivers & Restraints
Dry ice market is expected to witness a steady growth during the forecast period. The growth of global dry ice market can be attributed to the growing demand for dry ice as a refrigerant in food and transport industry. Another factor that is expected to fuel the growth of global dry ice market is the use of dry ice for industrial cleaning by means of dry ice blast cleaning. It offers a safer solution as compared to use of cleaning solvents and other chemicals. Moreover, growing demand for frozen foods is expected to drive the growth of global dry ice market. The versatility of dry ice and its use as an effective alternative to conventional electric power based cooling system is expected to translate into a steady growth in demand for dry ice, thus fuelling the growth of global dry ice market during the forecast period.
