Published Date : Apr 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Machinery and Equipment

The global flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems market size is projected to reach around USD 25,169.8 million in 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.4%. The FGD systems market has been witnessing consistent growth owing to the increasing concerns regarding environmental pollution, growing prevalence of airborne diseases, and enforcement of environmental laws & regulations. The rise in demand for FGD systems from the power generation, chemical, iron & steel, and cement & manufacturing industries is expected to drive the market globally. Stringent environmental regulations focused on the control of excessive industrial sulfur dioxide emissions are further expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Flue gas desulfurization systems are used to remove sulfur dioxide (SO2) contained in gases formed by the ignition of fossil fuels including coal, oil, automobile tires, municipal solid waste, and several other industrial processes, which include cement, gasoline refining, glass, paper, iron, steel, and copper manufacturing. SO2 releases are a chief contributor to acid rains and have been regulated by each industrial country globally.

The increase in popularity of FGD systems in the growing cement and chemical manufacturing industries is also expected to garner to the growth of the global flue gas desulfurization systems market. In addition, growth in awareness about the consequences of air pollution on health among the people and governments of different countries enhances the demand for flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems; thereby, catering to the development of the market. The major flue gas desulfurization systems market players are trying to expand and develop their product portfolios to efficiently eliminate the flue gases from industrial plants. For instance, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. based in Japan deals in FGD systems such as wet limestone-gypsum FGD system and seawater FGD system to eliminate SO2 from flue gases generated by furnaces, boilers, and other sources. The Wet Limestone-Gypsum FGD system is of two types, which include double contact flow scrubber (DCFS) and spray tower scrubber.

The deteriorating air quality all over the globe due to development in industrialization and urbanization has turned out to be a significant issue. Therefore, economies which include the U.S., China, India, France, and others are concentrating toward control of air pollution. Thereby, driving the overall flue gas desulfurization systems market. Moreover, the governments have formulated stringent laws for maintaining the air quality standards. This is anticipated to lead to the flue gas desulfurization systems market growth during the forecast period. Quite the reverse, the high operating costs and initial investments required by the systems are anticipated to restrain the flue gas desulfurization systems market growth. Moreover, the power generation industries are eradicating the use of coal, which are the major users of FGD systems to avert the SO2 discharges. Thus, the reduction in the number of coal power plants globally is expected to hinder the growth of the flue gas desulfurization systems market during the forecast period.

Based on type, wet FGD systems segment accounted for the largest share in 2020

Based on type, the market has been segmented into wet and dry & semi-dry FGD systems. Key factors responsible for the adoption of wet FGD technology are its high removal efficiency, high emission standards set by federal governments, an increase in electricity demand, and an increase in the number of coal-fired power plants in emerging economies. The growth of the wet FGD systems segment can also be attributed to its early commercial deployment in 1970 and its high efficiency in terms of SO2 removal. Moreover, the by-product of typical wet FGD systems, which use limestone as a reagent, is gypsum. This can be marketed to cement and wallboard manufacturers and the fertilizer industry.

Based on end-use industry, the power generation segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020

Based on end-use industry, the power generation end-use industry segment accounted for the largest share of the global FGD market in 2019. Coal-fired power plants are the major source of sulfur pollutants, due to the usage of high sulfur content coals in power plants. Therefore, increased power generation is the reason for the dominance of the power generation segment over other end-use industries.

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the FGD systems market in 2020

The Asia Pacific FGD systems market will see increased demand from the power generation industry as a result of the increased regulations and power production in the region. The power generation industry consumed the highest amount of FGD in the region and accounted for the largest share in the Asia Pacific FGD systems market in 2019. As the chemical sector, as well as the cement and metal smelting industries, are growing in Asia Pacific, more opportunities are expected for this market in this region in the coming years.
