Carbon Capture and Storage Market Overview

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an emission mitigation technology that will play a critical role in limiting global warming. It will be instrumental in decarbonizing hard-to-replace industries, such as gas-fired power plants. Thus, CCS will supplement renewable energy, hydrogen, and nuclear power in curbing global carbon emissions. However, the pace of CCS adoption is hindered by high costs and the identification of storage sites for the permanent injection of CO2. These challenges could be overcome in due course with technological advancement. Until then, government incentives, such as in the US, will be essential in the deployment of CCS in industries.

The CCS thematic research report highlights key oil & gas sector trends, technology trends, and regulatory trends in CCS. Furthermore, it discusses CCS value chains, M&A activities, and major companies that play their role in CCS deployments.

Carbon Capture and Storage: Key Trends

The key trends that are impacting the CCS can be classified into three categories: oil & gas sector trends, technology trends, and regulatory trends.

  • Oil & Gas Sector Trends: Some of the key oil & gas sector trends impacting the CCS are cost concerns of CCS, low-carbon hydrogen gaining momentum with CCS, CCS adoption in industrial clusters by governments & corporates, and C02 storage sites.
  • Technology Trends – The key technology trends impacting the CCS include direct air capture of CO2, application of AI tools in CCS operations, conversion of CO2 into carbon nanotubes, and maritime CCS.
  • Regulatory Trends – The key regulatory trends impacting the CCS are tax credits offered by the US, Canada’s capital-intensive deployment of CCS technologies, and Japan’s climate goals.

Carbon Capture Storage – Industry Analysis

In the last two years, many oil and gas and power companies have planned to install CCS units within their facilities to mitigate emissions. Some of them have even received government funding in countries, such as the US, Norway, and the UK, which could ease the realization of these projects. For this reason, North America is anticipated to account for nearly half of the CCS capacity by 2030. Moreover, the US is expected to drive future capacity additions across various sectors, especially oil and gas and power generation.

The CCS industry analysis also covers:

  • CCS capacity by sector
  • Competitive landscape
  • M&A activities

Carbon Capture Storage - Value Chain Analysis

GlobalData’s CCS value chain consists of five segments: CO2 emission source, CO2 capture & separation, CO2 transportation, CO2 end product, and oilfield services.

CO2 Capture & Separation: The energy sector releases sizable volumes of CO2 during the processing and combustion of fossil fuels. CO2 can be separated from the process stream either before or after the combustion stage, considering the choice of feedstock, plant design, costs, and other constraints. The pre-combustion capture and post-combustion capture technologies are among the more mature approaches to mitigating carbon emissions from industrial processes.

We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
