The report "Flue Gas Desulfurization Systems Market by Type (Wet, Dry & Semi-Dry), End-Use Industry (Power Generation, Chemical, Iron & Steel, Cement Manufacturing), Installation (Greenfield and Brownfield), and Region - Global Forecast to 2025", is projected to grow from USD 17.7 billion in 2020 to USD 23.1 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2020 to 2025. Market growth is driven by the enforcement of federal laws and regulations that mandate SOx emitting industries to install air quality control equipment.
Based on type, the wet FGD systems segment is projected to lead the market during the forecast period.
Based on type, the wet FGD systems segment is estimated to lead the market in 2020 as these are the most commonly used in industrial plants owing to their high removal efficiency (> 95%). As coal-fired power plants are the chief contributor of flue gases, most countries have strict emission standards for power generation units, mandating them to install FGD systems with high removal efficiency. Thus, wet FGD systems remain in high demand to meet the environmental standards across the globe.
Among end-use industry, the power generation segment is estimated to lead the FGD system market during the forecast period.
Based on end-use industry, the power generation segment is expected to lead the FGD system market, as most developing and developed countries are still dependent on coal for electricity generation. China is the market leader in terms of wet FGD system installations in power plants. It has the maximum number of proposed power plants in the world. This, in turn, has increased SOX emission in China, consequently driving the demand for wet FGD systems that have a high removal efficiency to meet the emission standards set by the government.
The FGD systems market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025
The Asia Pacific region is a highly potential market for FGD systems and is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period. The important drivers for the rising demand for FGD systems in Asia Pacific are the rapidly rising energy demand, industrialization, and awareness about controlling air pollution. The chemical sector is continuously growing in the Asia Pacific region and is expected to fuel the growth of the FGD systems market during the forecast period. The growth of the market in the Asia Pacific region can also be attributed to the growing cement manufacturing and metal smelting industries.
