The implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act, The CHIPS Act, and Science Act, which allocate substantial funds for enhancing domestic semiconductor production and improving vehicle supply chains, is expected to bolster the automotive manufacturing sector in the country. With the rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs) and the push towards cleaner and greener transportation, the automotive industry is rapidly transitioning towards electric mobility. As a result, there will be an increased need for air pollution control devices in the automotive manufacturing process, particularly in the production of EVs.

As automotive manufacturers strive to meet emission standards and produce more environmentally friendly vehicles, the adoption of air pollution control devices becomes crucial. These devices can help reduce emissions from various manufacturing processes, including painting, welding, and material handling, ensuring compliance with environmental regulations and contributing to a cleaner manufacturing environment.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Technological Advancements

The market's expansion can be credited to the continuous increase in energy and power plant establishments, including coal & gas-fired power plants. This growth is further driven by the implementation of strict air pollution regulations, such as the Clean Air Act (CAA) & National Ambient Air Quality Standards. With industrial activities on the rise globally, governments and environmental authorities are facing mounting pressure to regulate and curb emissions effectively. To address this concern, many governments have introduced stringent regulations pertaining to gas emissions in industrial sectors, which are anticipated to propel the market's growth throughout the forecast period.

Key governmental agencies, such as the European Environment Agency (EEA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), & Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), are playing crucial roles in shaping policies and initiatives to improve air quality and combat air pollution. These efforts are expected to drive the adoption of gas cleaning technologies in the coming years. Notably, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that crude oil production in the U.S. was 11.9 Mn barrels per day in 2023 and is projected to reach 12.6 Mn barrels per day in 2023 and 12.7 Mn barrels per day in 2024.

By Product Analysis

Particulate segment accounted for the largest share in 2022

Particulate segment accounted for major global share. Among the various types of wet scrubbers, particle dust scrubbers stand out for their ability to effectively remove particulates like 10 and 2.5 particulate matter. These specialized scrubbers are particularly valuable in industries dealing with fine dust, such as food manufacturing, where they play a crucial role in preventing the accumulation of biological matter during the production process. Dust collectors are widely employed across diverse industries.

Dry sorbent segment is likely to register highest growth rate. Dry sorbent injection stands out among other gas cleaning technologies due to several key advantages it offers. Notably, it boasts low capital costs and occupies a small footprint, making it an attractive choice for industries seeking cost-effective and space-efficient solutions. The reduced capital costs associated with dry sorbent injection can be attributed to its efficient reagent utilization, resulting in lower operational expenses. This cost-effectiveness has become a driving force behind the increasing adoption of dry sorbent injection in various industrial applications.

By End-Use Analysis

Power generation expected to hold substantial market share during forecast period

Power generation segment is projected to hold significant market share. Gas cleaning technologies, including wet scrubbers and dry scrubbers, play a crucial role in the power generation industry. Among these technologies, wet scrubbers are particularly prevalent in this sector due to the significant release of air contaminants from fossil fuel-based power plants, especially coal-fired ones.

Wet scrubbers are highly effective in controlling and reducing emissions of pollutants like SO2 and NO2 from fossil fuel-based power plants. The increasing adoption of wet scrubbers in power generation plants is expected to drive the growth of the gas cleaning technologies market over the forecast period. As power plants continue to prioritize environmental regulations and emission reduction, the demand for efficient gas cleaning solutions like wet scrubbers is projected to rise significantly.

Chemical segment witnessed steady growth. Wet scrubbers play a vital role in chemical plants, fertilizer plants, and acid manufacturing facilities. The chemicals industry is expected to witness significant expansion and rapid industrialization during this period. Moreover, the growing demand for chemicals from various manufacturing industries, coupled with continuous advancements in product technologies, is anticipated to drive the chemicals sector's progress.
