Wet Scrubber Market Growth & Trends
The global wet scrubber market size is expected to reach USD 1.78 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2020 to 2027. The market is largely driven by growing gas treatment techniques, mostly in power generation, refineries, and chemical plants for gas treatment.
Numerous emission standards have been implemented by many governments for regulating air quality. Furthermore, monitoring agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Central Pollution Control Board, and European Environment Agency (EEA) are implementing strict protocols for air pollution control, which, in turn, is projected to drive the market.
Wet scrubbers are capable of handling gases as well as air particulates, which has boosted their demand where controlling air pollution is of primary concern. Besides, wet scrubber has higher acid gas control efficiency than other control methods. Wet scrubbers also help in neutralizing corrosive gases, which has increased their demand in numerous industrial applications.
The industry is highly fragmented with the presence of a large number of participants across the value chain. Market players have been witnessing intense competition in terms of product offering at a competitive price range. The global wet scrubber industry is expected to witness significant rivalry over the forecast period.
