The yearly and cumulative investment spending by separation technology was$ 6.8 billion in 2014. It is estimated that the spending will be $6.8 billion in 2015 and $1 billion in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -32%.

This report provides:

An overview of the global market for carbon capture and storage, and related technologies and applications.
Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2014, estimates for 2015, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2019.
Information on the status of competing carbon capture technologies as well as global technological research and development (R&D) for carbon capture technologies
Analysis of the costs to the purchasers of carbon capture equipment, and also analysis of the impact to the consumer
Insight into what technologies are emerging that could compete with existing technologies in use or displace those technologies
An in-depth patent analysis
Comprehensive profiles of major players in the industry and how these companies are positioning their technology to compete against other technologies.


This report focuses on projects for the deployment of carbon capture, storage and utilization (CCUS) technologies and the short- or long-term sequestration of anthropogenic emissions that would otherwise be emitted from large point sources such as power stations or industrial facilities.
The report will analyze the three major routes which have been developed for capture of CO2 in both power and industrial plants—pre-combustion, oxy-fuel combustion, and post-combustion—as well as the capabilities of inherent separation processes. For each, the report presents the applications, underlying technologies, economic driving forces and major ongoing projects.
The report also includes a review of the current and emerging uses of CO2, including a description of the underlying technologies and their potential.
As CCUS development depends heavily on current climate policies, the report also reviews recent developments in emissions regulation and development support programs that may impact CCUS deployment in a number of countries.
Major market and market segments are measured and forecasted for several years, including 2014, and five-year forecasts are made to 2019 in most cases.
While traditional uses of CO2 are mentioned, the report focuses on emerging uses that could offer opportunities to increase CO2 utilization and therefore its sequestration.
The report does not consider captive uses for CO2 where the CO2 is an intermediate product in the process. Captive uses may be mentioned but are not included in our estimates because these processes do not offer additional demand for captured CO2 in the future. Capture of atmospheric CO2 is also not included in the report.
