Industrial Emission Control Systems Market Overview:
Global Industrial Emission Control Systems Market is expected to garner $21,133 million by 2022. Electrostatic precipitators (ESP) are estimated to dominate the market from 2015-2022. Industrial emission control systems monitor and reduce harmful products that are released by combustion and other emission processes, which cause environmental pollution.
Industrial segments, such as power generation, cement, mining & metals, chemical industries, and others, use these equipment to convert hazardous air contaminants such as unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur oxides into water vapor and carbon dioxide, which can be safely released into the atmosphere.
Regulatory agencies such as the Environmental Protection Association (EPA) have placed stringent limitations on acceptable emission levels that can be released into the atmosphere. Compliance with these regulations has led industries to increase their usage of emission control systems, while failure in adoption of these standards results in governments imposing substantial fines.The global market for industrial emission control systems is driven by the stringent environmental regulation standards, increase in industrialization, rise in usage of coal for power in developing countries, and growth in the cement sector. The market growth is restrained by the growth in use of alternate sources of energy such as solar, wind, and hydropower and decrease in coal power investments in developed economies.
The global market for industrial emission control systems is segmented based on equipment type, emission source, and geography. The market is analyzed across four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA, along with their prominent countries. Based on equipment type, it is divided into electrostatic precipitators, fabric filters, scrubbers, cyclones, thermal oxidizers, and others. Electrostatic precipitators led the industrial emission control systems market. Electrostatic precipitators are capable of operating at over 99% efficiency levels and have applications in power plants, steel and paper mills, smelters, cement plants, and petroleum refineries. Thermal oxidizers equipment are estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to increase in applications in industries and their high efficiency levels.
Based on geography, Asia-Pacific is the major contributor to the revenue, followed by North America. Governments in these regions are in the process of implementing stringent regulations to effectively regulate emissions from the industrial segment. The emission control systems market in Asia-Pacific is also driven by the newly formulated mercury emission regulations.
Top Impacting Factors for Global Industrial Emission Control Systems Market
Stringent Emission Regulations:
The market for industrial emission control systems is affected by the emission regulations on the industries. Industrial sectors such as refineries, power plants, chemical & petrochemical sectors, mining & metals industries need to largely comply with these standards or potentially face substantial fines that will have a significant impact on their operations and profitability. The impact of these regulations is currently high, which is expected to continue to have severe impact on the adoption and relative growth of the market.
Cement Industry Growth: Cement and lime producing industries are key end-user segments for industrial emission control systems. These industries generate the most harmful emissions such as carbon dioxide, particulate, NOx, and SOx, which have adverse impact on the environment causing occupational hazards, and adverse effects on crops, orchids, and building. Cement industry is also highly regulated with respect to air pollution standards and release of harmful emissions. The growth in the cement industry due to infrastructure developing increases the potential growth for industrial emission control systems.
Industrial Growth in Emerging Countries:
The industrial growth in emerging countries is driven by China and India. Globalization has led to various manufacturing companies from developed countries to migrate to these low-cost countries. This establishment of local manufacturing companies increases the demand for emission control systems. With the rise in industrialization, environmental regulations in emerging regions are also being directed towards cleaner working environments and reduction in environmental emissions.

The global market for industrial emission control systems is estimated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. This market is driven by the change in regulatory environment globally. Industries worldwide need to comply with various international, federal, state, and local government legislations, failing which they would have to potentially face large fines or suspensions in operations. Governments have set out strong regulations for power plants and other emission sources to cut down their carbon and other harmful pollutant footprints. The enforcement of these regulations is expected to provide significant boost to the market.
The major emission sources for industrial air pollution are coal and thermal power plants. These plants emit a wide range of harmful air contaminants such as particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, mercury, and other contaminants, which can potentially cause lung failure and other diseases. To control these emissions, adoption of emission control equipment becomes a priority for industries. The power generation segment contributes to around 45.4% of the global market for industrial emission control systems. This segment utilizes advanced emission control technologies such as selective catalytic reactors (SCR), electrostatic precipitators, fabric filters, and other equipment to regulate the emissions from the industry.
The power generation segment is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period as its growth is driven by the installation of new coal-fired power plants in China, India, and other emerging regions. The market for this industry is also fueled by several retrofit programs that are being undertaken. The key factor restraining the market growth is increase in use of alternate sources for power generation such as wind, solar, and hydropower in developed regions such as North America and Europe.
