Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) is a technology used to remove SO2 (sulfur dioxide) from the exhaust flue gases of coal power plants and other SO2-emitting processes in industries like water and wastewater treatment, and chemical and cement manufacturing.The FGD unit can be dry, semi dry or wet, depending upon the application.

In dry FGD, lime, trona, activated carbon and other dry reagents are used to remove SO2. In the wet FGD scrubbing process, wastewater is generated, which is deposed after treatment. This wet FGD wastewater contains high concentrations of sulfates, calcium, magnesium, heavy metals, TSS and ammonia, and stringent regulations are imposed by different countries like China,
United States and Germany.

In 2020, the global market for flue gas desulfurization was significantly impacted by COVID-19.Currently, players have hope that COVID-19 vaccine availability will help restore a sense of normalcy.

The global market for flue gas desulfurization is categorized into three notable segments which are based on the installation, type and end-user industry.

Based on type, the market for flue gas desulfurization is segmented into wet FGD and dry and semi-dry FGD.Wet FGD is expected to dominate the market due to its high SO2 removal efficiency.

Wet FGD and dry and semi-dry FGD are further segmented based on region.

Based on installation, the market for flue gas desulfurization is segmented into greenfield, and brownfield and revamp. Greenfield installations dominate the market, as many of the plants are required to install FGD units for the first time.

Based on end user, the market for flue gas desulfurization is segmented into power generation, cement, chemical, iron, steel and others. The power generation segment is expected to dominate the market, as coal-fired power plants are the major source of sulfur dioxide emission.

The major companies in the global market for flue gas desulfurization are Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, General Electric, Doosan Lentjes GmbH, Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc., RAFAKO S.A., FLSmidth, HAMON, Marsulex Environmental Technologies Corp. and Thermax Ltd., Andritz AG.
