Oxygen Scavenger Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Oxygen Scavenger Market Size was valued at USD 2.21 billion in 2022, and is expected to reach USD 3.34 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

For enclosed packaging, oxygen scavengers or oxygen absorbers are advised to help minimize or eliminate the amount of oxygen. They support maintaining food standards and extending shelf life. Oxygen absorbers come in a variety of designs that are suited for a variety of applications. The specifications of an oxygen absorber vary depending on the intended application, the object being maintained's water activity and other factors. Although it can also be a part of food packaging films, the oxygen absorber or scavenger is typically enclosed in a permeable pouch or package.

Impact of COVID-19:

Applications for oxygen scavengers include water treatment to remove oxygen that could otherwise destroy machinery, pipelines, etc., as well as food or pharmaceutical packaging in industries including food & beverage, power, oil & gas, pharmaceutical, pulp & paper, chemical, and so forth. Globally, the pandemic has had an effect on industries like food and beverage, textiles, pulp and paper, and power. The COVID-19 epidemic hindered the water sector's expansion in 2020 while it was under lockdown. The industry had to deal with emergency measures, a change in demand patterns, and supply chain interruptions. Due to closures or decreased activity, many important water users lowered their needs. During this economic crisis, revenue loss and a decline in capital expenditures were noted.

Short-term revenue increases and growth stabilisation are anticipated with the help of strategies like long-term CAPEX planning to build resilience, maintaining hygienic workplaces, government financial support, improved supply chain planning, appropriate communication, and restarting industrial operations.

Regional Analysis:

The oxygen scavengers market in Asia Pacific, which would develop at the quickest rate, produced around USD 800 million in 2018. This significant expansion can be attributed to the region's food and beverage packaging industry's positive tendencies. Future market expansion is projected to be aided by rising packaged food consumption and a focus on reducing food waste.

Due to increasing demand from the pharmaceutical packaging and oil & gas industries, the North American market will expand at a CAGR of about 3.5% over the anticipated time period. North America held more than 45% of the global pharmaceutical industry in 2022, according to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA). The demand for the product will rise in the future due to an increase in applications involving the preservation of medications for designated periods of time.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
