The bubble bursts: Carbon dioxide shortage has put industry revenue under pressure

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a versatile gas that is used in a variety of processes and applications that benefit from its main properties: reactivity, inertness and low temperature. CO2 is produced as either a high-pressure cylinder gas, a low-pressure refrigerated liquid, or in a solid form as dry ice. Several of CO2's major uses are in food and beverage industries, where the gas can be used to carbonate soft drinks, decaffeinate coffee, freeze food products, and maintain ideal atmospheric conditions in food packaging and during food transport. As a result, the Carbon Dioxide Production industry's performance often reflects developments in Australia's food and beverage more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Food and beverage sector developments have supported the industry over the past five years
  • Enterprise numbers have remained largely stable, in line with the industry’s mature stage
  • Strong demand and new environmentally friendly applications will drive industry growth
  • Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

    The industry’s barriers to entry are high. This reflects the highly concentrated nature of the industry, and the mature nature of the manufacturing industries that make up the bulk of the industry’s downstream customers. The dominance of existing major players is also a barrier for new entrants.High capital outlays and the need for specialised technical requirements can pose substantial barriers to entry. Constructing high performance carbon dioxide (CO2) recovery and production plants, which also have a low environmental impact, requires significant capital investment. Further, the industry’s processes require engineering and technical expertise. In addition to the actual plant, other assets required include cylinders, filling centres and road or rail tankers.
