Flue Gas Desulfurization Market size, share, growth Analysis (2021-2026)

The global flue gas desulfurization market is predicted to raise from $ 17.7 billion in the year 2021 to $ 23.1 billion in 2026, with a current CAGR of 5.5 % throughout the foreseen period.

Power generation in any industry it requires combustion of fuels, of which coal and oil are crucial parts. Combustion gases are composed of nitrogen and sulfur oxides and particles that cause air pollution and environmental degradation in the form of acid rain. By one estimate, about 95% of sulfur is converted to sulfur dioxide under standard temperature conditions. Therefore, there is a constant need to reduce sulfur emissions by regulating industrial emissions, which requires different flue gas desulfurization technologies. Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) is primarily employed to remove hazardous sulfur dioxide emissions from flue gases. These systems help reduce SO2 levels and other greenhouse gas emissions. Dry flue gas desulfurization and wet flue gas desulfurization have become key technologies in the world market. In general, wet FGD systems are expensive compared to dry systems. Wet systems capture most of the market and are predicted to maintain their dominant position for years to come.

Flue Gas Desulfurization Market Trends:

The market for FGD systems has grown steadily due to growing concerns about environmental pollution, the increasing prevalence of airborne diseases, and the enforcement of environmental laws and regulations. The growing call for FGD systems in the power generation, chemicals, iron and steel, cement and manufacturing sectors is predicted to drive the worldwide market. Strict environmental regulations focused on controlling excessive industrial emissions of sulfur dioxide are predicted to drive market expansion during the foreseen period.

Flue Gas Desulfurization Recent Developments in Industry:

Start of construction of the flue gas desulfurization systems of a coal-fired power plant. As part of the project, some units will receive wet flue gas desulfurization systems that uses limestone as a reagent and produces by-products like gypsum, which can be used in constructions.

Yokogawa Electric Corporation declared that it will supply a control system for a flue gas desulfurization system to be put at the Ugljevik coal-fired power industry. This flue gas desulfurization system, which will be the first of its kind to be installed in the Western Balkans, is predicted to enter service in October 2019.

Flue Gas Desulfurization Market Drivers

The global flue gas desulfurization market is promoted by the implementation of stringent environmental regulations. In addition to this, the increasing call for energy around the world has also created a strong call for flue gas desulfurization. Therefore, all these factors play an important role in the expansion of the worldwide flue gas desulfurization market in the coming years. The increased focus on combating air pollution, the expansion of the industrial sector, and the strict government regulations for the control of air pollution have driven the expansion of the global flue gas desulfurization market. The worldwide FGD market is predicted to show rapid market expansion during the outlook period. In many countries, strict government regulations have been implemented to protect the environment to limit and control flue gas emissions, which are the main driver of the worldwide market. The increasing number of power plants to meet the increasing call for energy requires more FGD systems that drive the expansion of the worldwide market. Increasing industrialization and the establishment of chemical, steel and cement manufacturing plants are driving call for FGD, which is driving the expansion of industry.

Flue Gas Desulfurization Market Restraints:

Nevertheless, there are some factors that could hamper the expansion of the market in the near future. These factors will slow the expansion of the market and prevent it from reaching its full potential. One of the main factors restricting the expansion of the market has been the high cost of installing the desulfurization of these combustion gases.

Opportunities in the Flue Gas Desulfurization Market:

Nevertheless, growing call from emerging economies such as India and Japan is predicted to present lucrative expansion opportunities in the coming years of the foreseen period. Technological improvements in the design of high-performance FGD systems would offer market players new opportunities to explore. Furthermore, the decreasing cost of FGD systems should provide opportunities for new entrants to the market.

Flue Gas Desulfurization Market Challenges:

The market is further hampered by the presence of alternative flue gas treatment methods like fluidized bed combustion and others. Another major problem factor is the higher cost of disposable waste associated with these systems.
