Flue Gas Desulfurization System Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Flue Gas Desulfurization System Market Size was valued at USD 19.93 billion in 2022, and is expected to reach USD 28.35 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

Flue gas desulfurization systems are used to get rid of sulphur dioxide (SO2) from gases made by the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil, car tyres, municipal solid waste, and a number of industrial processes like making cement, refining gasoline, making glass, paper, iron, steel, and copper. Acid rains are mostly caused by the release of SO2, and every industrial country in the world has rules about how much can be released.

The flue gas desulfurization systems market is expected to grow because FGD systems are becoming more popular in the cement and chemical industries, which are also growing. People and governments in different countries are becoming more aware of the effects of air pollution on health, which increases the demand for flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems and helps the market grow. The big players in the flue gas desulfurization systems market are trying to grow and improve their product lines so that industrial plants can get rid of their flue gases more efficiently.

Market Dynamics:


  • Strict rules for sulphur oxide pollution


  • Clean energy sources will become more common and be used more quickly


  • China and India are building more power plants that use coal


High amount of energy needed to run the FGD system in power plants

Impact of COVID-19:

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, pollution levels have gone down in many different countries. The International Energy Agency says that by 2020, the world's energy use will have dropped by about 5 percent, which would be the biggest drop in 70 years. The FGD systems market was affected by problems with the supply chain and the economy, which caused projects to be delayed, pushed back, or even cancelled. FGD systems are also used a lot in the chemical industry and the cement industry. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a big effect on important industries like making chemicals, iron and steel, and cement. End markets have been hit hard by changes in the demand for chemicals, which has messed up global supply chains. Because of this, major chemical companies' stock prices and income have taken big hits, which has slowed down investments in new FGD systems.

Regional Analysis:

The global flue gas desulfurization systems market is split into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and South America. In 2022, most of the money came from the Asia-Pacific region. This was because there was more demand from the power industry and more power was being made in the region. India and China are growing a lot in the area because pollution is getting worse, emission standards are being put in place, and more money is being put into expanding capacity. The European Government's efforts in the field of agriculture, such as green growth, agroecology, and sustainable intensification, should lead to a lot of growth in Europe. North America's market is growing quickly because government rules are getting stricter and more people want to use electricity.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
