Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) Systems: Global Industry Trends and Opportunities 2021-2026

·4-min read

Dublin, Dec. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Flue Gas Desulfurization System Market by Type (Wet, Dry & Semi-Dry), End-Use Industry (Power Generation, Chemical, Iron & Steel, Cement Manufacturing), Installation (Greenfield and Brownfield) and Region - Forecast to 2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global FGD systems market is projected to grow from USD 19.3 billion in 2021 to USD 24.9 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2021 to 2026.

The FGD systems market has shown a positive growth trend over the last few years and is primarily driven by various factors such as stringent air pollution control regulations, rising environmental awareness, and consideration of coal as the most reliable source of energy. However, high initial installation costs, high operational energy requirements, and waste disposing requirements and associated costs are some of the factors that are restraining the growth of this market.

The dry & semi-dry FGD system segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Based on type, the FGD systems market has been classified into wet and dry & semi-dry. The dry & semi-dry FGD systems segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period as these are available at cheaper rates as compared to wet FGDs.

The power generation end-use industry segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Based on end-use industry, the power generation segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, as most emerging and developed countries are still dependent on coal for electricity generation. According to the International Energy Agency, roughly 36.7% of the world's electricity generation in 2019 was dependent on coal.

The FGD systems market will witness an increase in demand from the power generation industry due to stringent regulations to control sulfur emissions from plants that use coal for power generation. Organizations such as the US Environmental Protection Agency and the European Committee for Standardization have defined stringent regulations pertaining to emissions from coal-based power plants.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the FGD systems market during the forecast period

The FGD systems market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. Key factors responsible for the adoption of wet FGD technology in the Asia Pacific region are government regulations for emission control, an increase in electricity demand, growth in reagent and equipment replacement market, and an increase in the number of coal-fired power plants.
