Cryostat Market

Cryostat Companies - Leica Biosystems (Germany) and Attocube Systems AG (Germany) are the Key Players

The cryostat market is projected to reach USD 2.8 billion by 2027 from USD 2.2 billion in 2022; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2022 to 2027.

A cryostat is a chamber that can maintain low temperatures. Medical laboratories and research centers use cryostats to preserve frozen tissue samples. The report covers the demand and supply sides of the cryostat market. The supply-side market segmentation is based on types, cryogens, and system components. The demand-side market segmentation is based on applications and regions. Cryostats have applications in various applications, such as healthcare, energy & power, aerospace, metallurgy, biotechnology, and forensic science. The growth in this market can be attributed to the developments in various medical applications, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and tissue sampling. In addition, increasing applications of cryogenics in energy & power and aerospace applications are expected to boost the market growth. The major application areas for cryogenics in the energy and power sector include the exploration, production, and transportation of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). When natural gas is cooled to -259 degrees Fahrenheit (-161 degrees Celsius) by the liquefaction process, it becomes a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid. Cryostats are used to keep this liquefied gas in its liquid state at a very low temperature. The temperature within the tank remains constant if the pressure is kept constant by enabling the boil-off gas to escape from the tank. The market for natural gas imports in the Asia Pacific has grown from around 17 billion cubic meters in 1990 to 560 billion cubic meters in 2010. According to International Energy Agency (IEA), the power sector consumes around 44%, while the residential sector consumes 18% of the available natural gas. The major consumers of natural gas in the Asia Pacific are China, Japan, India, South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Australia. Pipeline trade is mainly driven by increased imports from Central Asia and Myanmar to China and India. The wide usage of cryostats in the exploration, production, and transportation of natural gas is expected to create growth opportunities for the said market.
