How has COVID-19 had a Significant Negative Impact on the Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) Market?
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the CCS market, with a mixture of challenges and opportunities. One of the major challenges faced by the CCS industry was the disruption of supply chains and subsequent project delays. Furthermore, the decline in energy demand resulting from global lockdown measures had a direct impact on CCS projects, as they rely on a stable demand for captured carbon dioxide. The Boundary Dam CCS facility in Canada, for example, temporarily reduced its operations in 2021 due to lower energy demand. Collaboration and knowledge exchange also played a significant role during the pandemic. CCS projects became a focal point for international cooperation, with countries sharing best practices and lessons learned.

What are the Current Market Drivers?

International Cooperation and Partnerships are Expected to Drive Market Growth
Collaborative efforts between countries and organizations facilitate the sharing of knowledge, expertise, and resources, leading to accelerated development and deployment of CCS technologies. International cooperation and partnerships create opportunities for joint funding and investment in CCS projects. Collaborative funding programs provide financial support, reduce investment risks, and attract private sector involvement. For instance,

  • European Clean Hydrogen Alliance: The European Clean Hydrogen Alliance is a public-private partnership that aims to develop a sustainable hydrogen economy in Europe, including the deployment of CCS technologies. The alliance brings together industry stakeholders, governments, and investors to support funding and investment in CCS projects and infrastructure.
  • CCS project: In March 2023, the United States and Canada formed a new joint initiative to develop CCS projects in both countries. The initiative, called the "U.S.-Canada Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Partnership," will provide funding and technical support for CCS projects in both countries. The partnership is expected to mobilize up to US$1 billion in public and private investment in CCS projects over the next five years.

Government Regulations and Policies to Fuel CCS Market Growth
The carbon capture and storage (CCS) market is projected to grow significantly in the coming years, driven by government regulations and policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In the United States, the Biden administration has set a goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. This goal will require a significant increase in CCS deployment, as CCS is one of the few technologies that can capture and permanently store carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, industrial facilities, and other sources. The European Union has also set ambitious climate goals, and CCS is seen as an essential part of the EU's strategy to meet these goals.

The EU has already committed to funding CCS projects, and it is expected to continue to support CCS development in the coming years. Other countries around the world are also implementing regulations and policies that support CCS. The growth of the CCS market is also being driven by the increasing cost-competitiveness of CCS technologies. As CCS technologies continue to develop, they are becoming more affordable, which is making them more attractive to businesses and governments. In conclusion, government regulations and policies are playing a key role in driving the growth of the CCS market.

As these regulations and policies continue to evolve, the CCS market is expected to grow even more in the coming years. CEOs of companies that are considering investing in CCS should carefully consider the regulatory landscape in the countries where they operate. They should also be aware of the latest developments in CCS technology, as these developments can have a significant impact on the cost-effectiveness of CCS projects.

Where are the Market Opportunities?

Hydrogen Production and CCS Integration Present a Significant Opportunity
Hydrogen is considered a versatile and clean energy carrier that can be used across various sectors, including transportation, industry, and power generation. However, the most common method of hydrogen production, known as steam methane reforming (SMR), relies on natural gas and emits CO2 as a byproduct. Integrating CCS with hydrogen production facilities can capture and store the CO2 emissions, thereby enabling the production of low-carbon or carbon-free hydrogen. For instance, Humber Zero Project (2023): The Humber Zero project, set to begin operation in 2023, aims to produce low-carbon hydrogen by integrating CCS with hydrogen production. Located in the UK's Humber region, the project will capture CO2 emissions from a new natural gas-fired power station and transport the CO2 via pipelines for permanent storage in offshore geological formations. The captured CO2 will enable the production of low-carbon hydrogen for industrial use and decarbonization efforts in the region.

Carbon Capture Expertise are Essential for Achieving Climate Goals
Carbon capture expertise are essential for achieving climate goals as they provide a viable solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from various sectors. This presents a significant opportunity for the global carbon capture and storage (CCS) market. For instance, Decarbonizing Hard-to-Abate Sectors: CCS enables the capture and storage of CO2 emissions from sectors that are challenging to decarbonize, such as heavy industries (cement, steel, and chemicals), natural gas processing, and power generation from fossil fuels. By implementing CCS in these sectors, substantial emissions reductions can be achieved, contributing to overall climate mitigation efforts. For instance, The Northern Lights project in Norway is a notable example. It aims to capture CO2 from industrial sites in Europe, transport it via ships, and store it deep underground in offshore geological formations. The project has received significant funding and support from industry leaders, governments, and the European Union, highlighting the recognition of CCS as a key technology to achieve climate goals.\

Competitive Landscape
The major players operating in the carbon capture & storage (CCS) market are Exxon Mobil Corporation, Aker Solutions, Shell, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., Baker Hughes Company, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, Halliburton Company, General Electric Corporation, Air Liquide, Sulzer Ltd, Siemens Energy, Chevron Corporation, Schlumberger Limited., Linde AG., NRG Energy Inc. These major players operating in this market have adopted various strategies comprising M&A, investment in R&D, collaborations, partnerships, regional business expansion, and new product launch.
