Air Quality Control System Market Analysis

The market for air quality control systems is expected to register a CAGR of approximately 4.55% during 2020 – 2025. Major factors driving the market studied are the growing awareness among consumers, stringent air quality control regulations, growing end-user industries, and increasing awareness among common mass to mitigate health risks. However, the emergence of alternative and renewable sources of energy with reduced/zero emissions, and high capital required for the installation of air quality control system is expected to hinder the growth of the market studied.

  • Power generation industry dominates the market and is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing pollution and growing industrialization.
  • Retrofitting of old industrial plants with air quality control system to meet stringent regulatory norms set up by government is likely to acts as an opportunity in the future,
  • Asia-Pacific dominated the market across the globe with the largest market being India & China owing to growing industrialization and construction activity leading to the increasing demand of air quality control system.

Air Quality Control System Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Air Quality Control System Market according to our research experts:

Increasing Demand from Power Generation Industry

  • In power generation industry, power plants are the largest sources of emission of SO2, mercury, and acid gases. In the power sector, coal accounts for around 98% of SO2 emissions, 94% of mercury emissions, 86% of NOx emissions, and 83% of fine particulate emissions. About 42% of the world’s power in 2018 was generated using coal. The production of the aforementioned harmful gases can be minimized using air quality control systems (AQCS), such as, electrostatic precipitators, scrubbers, flue gas desulfurizers, and mercury control systems.
  • The growing concerns regarding environmental pollution and government actions to curb the same are driving the market. Stringent international and government regulations, such as, the Clean Air Act (CAA), and the Mercury and Air Toxics standard enforce the installation of systems that monitor and curb emissions to bring them to a safer level, in power generation companies using fossil fuels
  • Europe, which has mandated companies to employ high-quality AQCS, has the most stringent air pollution control laws for the industrial sector and with similar stringent laws been enforced in various regions the market for AQCS is expected to grow strongly during the forecast period.
  • With increasing restriction on the emission level in various industries by the government agencies, the market for air quality control system in the power generation sector is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • The exponential growth in the industrial sector (which includes power generation, cement manufacturing, and chemicals and metal processing) has influenced the demand for air quality control systems. With countries like China & India already topping the list of most polluted countries, the governments has been forced to implement laws and regulation for the emission standard in these countries forcing the pathway for the implementation of AQCS in industries.
  • The increasing rate of coal consumption, illegal mining operations, and less efficient industrial processes have led to the deterioration of air quality. In addition, the growing per-capita energy consumption and demand for the same are the major factors responsible for the high levels greenhouse gas emissions. To control rising emission the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has implemented air pollution control norms and standards that mandates the installation of air quality control systems in all industries.
  • China adopted tough emission standards for sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), and particulate matter (PM), for the newly constructed, and existing power plants in 2012 and 2014, respectively. In addition, all newly constructed and existing power plants are subjected to mercury emission standards from 2015 onwards. These environmental regulations have further propelled the demand for air quality control systems in the country.
  • With the major economies trying to shift toward the renewable for the energy generation most coal-fired power plant are expected to get decommissioned during the forecasted period, which might lead to the stagnant growth of the market.
