Flue Gas Desulfurization Systems Market Outlook - 2026

The Global Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) Systems Market Size was valued at $17,869.1 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $25,063.8 million in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.1%. Flue gas desulfurization systems are used to remove sulfur dioxide (SO2) contained in gases formed by the ignition of fossil fuels including coal, oil, automobile tires, municipal solid waste, and several other industrial processes, which include cement, gasoline refining, glass, paper, iron, steel, and copper manufacturing. SO2 releases are a chief contributor to acid rains and have been regulated by each industrial country globally.

Market Dynamics

The increase in popularity of FGD systems in the growing cement and chemical manufacturing industries is also expected to garner to the growth of the global flue gas desulfurization systems market. In addition, growth in awareness about the consequences of air pollution on health among the people and governments of different countries enhances the demand for flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems; thereby, catering to the development of the market. The major flue gas desulfurization systems market players are trying to expand and develop their product portfolios to efficiently eliminate the flue gases from industrial plants.

For instance, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. based in Japan deals in FGD systems such as wet limestone-gypsum FGD system and seawater FGD system to eliminate SO2 from flue gases generated by furnaces, boilers, and other sources. The Wet Limestone-Gypsum FGD system is of two types, which include double contact flow scrubber (DCFS) and spray tower scrubber.

The deteriorating air quality all over the globe due to development in industrialization and urbanization has turned out to be a significant issue. Therefore, economies which include the U.S., China, India, France, and others are concentrating toward control of air pollution. Thereby, driving the overall flue gas desulfurization systems market. Moreover, the governments have formulated stringent laws for maintaining the air quality standards. This is anticipated to lead to the flue gas desulfurization systems market growth during the forecast period. Quite the reverse, the high operating costs and initial investments required by the systems are anticipated to restrain the flue gas desulfurization systems market growth. Moreover, the power generation industries are eradicating the use of coal, which are the major users of FGD systems to avert the SO2 discharges. Thus, the reduction in the number of coal power plants globally is expected to hinder the growth of the flue gas desulfurization systems market during the forecast period.

Dry FGD system segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR

Technological advancements by manufacturers such as GE Power, Thermax, S.A. HAMON, MHPS, and others have increased the demand for flue gas desulphurization system products. For instance, ANDRITZ deals in advanced limestone FGD units that are cost-effective and efficient solutions to scrub SO2 and dust while preserving energy inputs to a minimum level. In addition, Carmeuse established new technologies Novel Integrated Desulfurization (NID) and Circulating Dry Scrubbers (CDS) which can remove 98% SO2 on 2.5% sulfur coal. These technologies consecutively recycle SO2 from flue gas through proprietary regenerable aqueous amine-based solvents. Hence, such technological advancements are predicted to offer lucrative opportunities for flue gas desulphurization system manufacturers.
