The Global Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) Market is projected to reach t USD 27.87billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is emitted following the combustion of oil, coal, and methane compounds in various industrial processes. Sulfur is one of the main constituents contributing to air pollution apart from carbon emissions. Municipal waste incinerators, tires, chemical industry emissions, and industrial waste emissions are major sources of sulfur dioxide emissions. Flue gas desulphurization technology (FGD) is used to remove sulfur dioxide from industrial emissions. Flue gas is subjected to the FGD process before it is released into the atmosphere. The major is the removal of 50%-90% of SO2 with the use of inexpensive reagents making it cost-efficient.

Global Flue Gas Desulphurization Market

Thermal power plants are a major source of sulfur emissions into the environment. Coal is one of the major fuels used in these thermal power plants used for energy generation. The combustion of coal releases harmful flue gases. These flue gases are contaminated with hydrocarbons and sulfur dioxide. Hence, in power plants, FGD technology is used to rid the flue gases of sulfur dioxide. In chemical/petrochemical industries, sulfur dioxide is released as a by-product of chemical reactions. Therefore, FGD technology is used in the chemical industry to purify the gases from sulfur dioxide pestilence. In the steel industry, sulfur dioxide is released during the toughening process. Therefore, FGD technology is largely used in the iron & steel industry.

Global Flue Gas Desulphurization Market

The flue gas desulphurization market is predominant in the Asia Pacific region due to increasing energy demand and heavy dependence on thermal power. The Chinese market accounts for 24-25% of the total global share of the FGD market. India is also emerging as a large FGD market due to increased energy demands, owing to rapid urbanization. Various programs such as Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and favorable government policies are benefiting the global FGD market. The FGD market in regions such as Western Europe and Eastern Europe is expected to witness steady growth.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increasing demand for energy in the Asia Pacific
  • Increasing awareness about clean energy
  • Low cost of technology
