    Market Insights

    The Flue Gas Desulfurization Systems Market is expected to grow from USD 19.68 billion in 2021 to USD 28.03 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.13% during the forecast period of 2022-2028.


    What is flue gas desulfurization?

    Flue gas desulfurization is the technology that is employed to remove oxides of sulfur from combustion flue gases of power plants and other industrial processes which burn oil or coal to produce steam for process heating and electricity generation.

    Market Drivers

    Surge in demand for electricity along with increasing investments toward thermal power generation capacity additions is likely to lead the flue gas desulfurization systems market growth. Developing economies are hostile investing towards coal-fired power generation to meet the ever-rising electricity demand from key economic sectors. Besides, the development of captive power plants across heavy industries will positively impact the deployment of these systems over the forecast period.

    Segment Analysis

    By Technology Type

    Based on the technology type, the market is segmented as wet and dry. The wet flue gas desulfurization systems market accounted for the largest sahre of more than 82.5% in 2021. Low sorbent material costs combined with high scrubbing & control efficiencies are some of the major underlying factors which will propel the industry growth. Strict emission standards pertaining to power generation and heavy industries will further energize the adoption of wet FGD systems. On the other hand, the dry flue gas desulfurization systems market is expected to experience strong growth on account of its low capital cost and ease of installation as compared to its available alternative. Compact design and simpler waste disposal processes are some of the major factors which advocate the adoption of these systems. Ongoing investments toward expansion of medium-scale industrial plants are further likely to bolster the product deployment over the forecast timeline.

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as power plants, chemical & petrochemical, cement, metal processing & mining, manufacturing, and others. The cement application segment is expected to observe significant growth during the forecast period. The SOx emissions from cement manufacturing are primarily generated in pyro processing stage during the fuel combustion. Over 90% of the SOx reduction is accomplished from installation of FGD systems at cement production plants, which drives the growth of the segment. Furthermore, robust growth across construction sector along with introduction of stringent emission standards is set to boost the demand for flue gas desulfurization systems across the cement industry.

    Flue Gas Desulfurization Systems Market Share: By Region

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific was the largest market for flue gas desulfurization systems with the market share of more than 72% in 2021, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period as well.  The Asia-Pacific region is likely to see an increased demand from the power generation industry as a result of the increased regulations and power production in the region. North America and Europe are also expected to offer substantial growth opportunities during the forecast period.
