 Air Pollution Control Market Size to grow by USD 151.04 billion between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Air Pollution Control Market” by End-user (Power, Industries, Others) Product (Scrubbers, Catalyst converters, Others) Geography (APAC, North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America)- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 151.04 billion, at a CAGR of over 7.97% during the forecast period. In the industrial sector, the primary contributors to air pollution are greenhouse gases (GHGs) from fossil fuel combustion. Factories are a significant source of CO2 emissions, the most damaging GHG. Additionally, SO2 releases lead to acid rain and the potential for acidification, while NOx and ammonia (NH3) also pose risks. Ozone emissions result in smog and ground-level ozone issues, causing health concerns. With the expansion of energy-intensive industries, GHG emissions have surged, necessitating robust Air Pollution Control Market solutions to mitigate these environmental challenges.

By End-user, the Power segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

Air pollution control markets witness significant growth due to the increasing demand for scrubbers in various industries. These devices, employing atomized liquids primarily water for capturing particulate matter and gases, offer multifunctional benefits. Simultaneously removing solids, mists, and gases, scrubbers ensure cooling and safe handling of explosive and flammable gases. Despite challenges such as corrosion leading to slurry waste streams, the market thrives in coal-fired power generation and industries like cement and iron and steel.

By Product, Scrubbers  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the power generation industry, coal and gas continue to dominate electricity production, particularly in Asian markets like China and India. However, this comes at a cost to the environment, as coal combustion generates harmful pollutants such as mercury, SO2, CO2, NOx, and particulate matter. To mitigate these emissions, the air pollution control market is experiencing significant growth, focusing on technologies for SO2 and NOx reduction, mercury capture, and particulate matter control. Ash, a byproduct of burning solid fuels, also requires proper management to minimize environmental impact.

APAC is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

In the APAC region, China, India, and Japan emerged as key players in the expansion of the air pollution control market in 2023. Governments in these countries have acknowledged the pressing issue of air pollution, driven by high energy consumption from industrialization and urbanization. Favorable government initiatives, such as Make in India in India and China's encouragement of manufacturing automation, have boosted demand for air pollution control equipment from the manufacturing sector.
