Flue Gas Desulfurization Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027

Market Overview:

The global flue gas desulfurization market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.17% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) is the process of eliminating sulfur compounds from the exhaust emissions of fossil-fueled power plants. It relies on absorbents to remove the sulfur dioxide (SO2) from the flue gas, which is produced by burning coal, oil, natural gas, or wood. It helps reduce air pollution by purifying gases produced during various industrial processes, such as manufacturing cement, glass, paper, iron, steel, and copper. It also assists in preventing acid rain, which is caused by the excessive level of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) in the air.

Flue Gas Desulfurization Market Trends:

The growing awareness among the masses about the consequences of rising air pollution on health represents one of the key factors driving the market. In addition, governments of several countries are promoting the use of FGD systems to maintain air quality standards, which is contributing to the growth of the market. Besides this, key market players are extensively investing in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce advanced limestone FGD units that are cost-effective and efficient solutions for removing sulfur dioxide (SO2) and dust. In line with this, they are developing enhanced technologies, such as novel integrated desulfurization (NID) and circulating dry scrubbers (CDS), to remove maximum sulfur dioxide (SO2) from flue gas, which is positively influencing the market. Moreover, the increasing demand for electricity, along with the significant investments in thermal power plants across the globe, is propelling the growth of the market. Apart from this, the escalating demand for FGD gypsum in the agriculture industry for improving soil physicochemical properties, controlling soil and nutrient loss, supplementing trace elements for soil, and increasing crop yield is bolstering the growth of the market.

Key Market Segmentation:
