Flue Gas Desulfurization Market for new FGD Systems (Wet and Dry FGD systems), Reagents and Replacement Applications - Global FGD Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2012 - 2019


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2015 -- According to the new market research report published by Transparency Market Research "FGD Market for new FGD systems (Wet and Dry FGD systems), Reagents and Replacement Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2012 - 2019," Global Flue Gas Desulfurization market was valued at USD 14.89 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach USD 22.18 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2013 to 2019.

The global FGD system types have various characteristics as per their use and application requirement in different areas of industries. The need for flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems arises because power plants utilizing fossil fuel such as coal release sulfur dioxide with the flue gas. This gas has extremely harmful environmental effects such as acid rain. Hence, in order to remove sulfur dioxide from the flue gas, flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems are extensively used in this process. These systems are equipped with the introduction of new stringent government policies and regulations that help to reduce harmful gaseous substances such as SO2 emission.

Owing to the increase in concentration of SO in the atmosphere, the rising concerns among different government organizations along with stringent environmental regulations is expected to boost the flue gas desulfurization market. Another major factor for the growth in this market is the rising electricity demand in the market. There is still a major dependence on coal for electricity production that helps in reducing the harmful effects of coal combustion.
