Global Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) Market Overview

Global flue gas desulphurization (FGD) market is forecast to grow from $ 9.6 billion in 2018 to $ 12 billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of over 4% during 2019-2024, owing to the enforcement of various federal laws and regulations that mandate SOx emitting industries to install air quality control equipment in their plants. Flue gas desulfurization is a technology which removes sulphur dioxide (SO2) from the flue gas emitted by fossil fuel power plants prior to its release into the atmosphere.

Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) market is growing across the globe, on account of increasing prevalence of airborne diseases, implementation of environmental laws and regulations, and growing concerns over environmental pollution. Increasing demand for FGD systems from chemicals, power generation, cement manufacturing, iron & steel, and many other industries is also expected to fuel the FGD market, globally, during forecast period.

Global Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) market Segment Insights

In terms of type, flue gas desulphurization market is categorized into dry & semi-dry FGD system and wet FGD system. Of the two types, wet FGD system category is anticipated to account for the majority share in global FGD market during the forecast period, owing to growing adoption of wet FGD systems in several industries backed by their high effectiveness in removing SO2 from flue gas.
