Air Quality Control Systems Market Outlook - 2026
The Global Air Quality Control Systems Market size was valued at $94,697.2 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $144,091.2 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.2%. Air quality control systems deal with solutions used for reducing the harmful contaminants from the ambient and indoor air. The pollutants are let out by manufacturing industries such as power generation plants, automotive, mining, medical, and pharmaceutical among many others. Thus, the air quality control systems (AQCS) offer solutions for controlling and handling of air, gases, and contaminants to provide cleaner air discharge. Air quality control systems include use of air filters, scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, and other products for maintaining the quality of air.
Growth in awareness about the effects of air pollution on health among the population boosts the popularity of air quality control systems. The major air quality control systems market players are trying to improve their product portfolios to eliminate the fine dust, bacteria, and other harmful elements from not only the commercial and residential indoor spaces, but also improve the overall air quality in the outdoor atmospheres. These factors are propelling the growth of the air quality control systems market. Furthermore, the rise in demand for air filtration systems from the growing medical and pharmaceutical industries is also driving the demand for global air quality control systems. Moreover, the declining air quality across the globe owing to growth in industrialization and urbanization, has become an important issue. Hence, economies such as China, India, and others are focusing toward air pollution control. Thereby, driving the overall air quality control systems market. On the contrary, the high initial investments and operating costs of the systems are expected to restrain the market. Moreover, the power generation industries are eliminating the use of coal power plants, which are the majority users of air filtration systems to prevent the release of fly ash. Thus, the decline in number of coal power plants is hindering the growth of the air quality control systems market during forecast period.
On the other hand, technological advancements by the manufacturers have increased the demand for air quality control systems. For instance, the company S.A. Hamon provides various advanced fabric filter technologies such as high-pressure pulse jet fabric filters, reactor fabric filters, medium-pressure pulse jet fabric filters, and low-pressure high-volume fabric filters (LPHV), which can operate without utilizing a compressor and can be used for large utilities. Moreover, the governments have formulated stringent laws for maintaining the air quality standards. This can create numerous opportunities for the air quality control systems market growth during the forecast period.
The Global Air Quality Control Systems Market is segmented based on product, application, end-user industry, pollutant type, and region.
