Electrostatic Precipitator Market - Snapshot

In urban areas, pollution levels are increasing with the rise in population. The presence of various air pollutants, such as SO2, NOx, acid mists, and dust particles, etc. is driving the electrostatic precipitator market. The growing trend of industrialization has also contributed to air pollution in urban areas. So the growing health concern will fuel the electrostatic precipitator market. Rigorous regulations with electrostatic precipitators are expected to curb the level of increasing air pollution. Electrostatic precipitators are filtration devices that use electrostatic induction to remove harmful particles. Compared to conventional industrial filters, these electrostatic precipitators work efficiently to remove pollutants and collect wet impurities. The durability and low operating and maintenance cost will boost the electrostatic precipitator market. As a result, various industries such as metal processing, marine, chemicals and power generation, etc. are installing electrostatic precipitators.

Construction, automotive, and industrial activities are emitting uncontrolled chemical fumes and gases, thus making air unfit for respiration. The rising pollution will help in the growth in the electrostatic precipitators market shortly. Various electrostatic precipitator manufacturers are developing mobile applications and technologically advanced mechanisms. The purpose of this development is to make the pollution control system accessible to remote locations. A variety of multinational companies are dominating the electrostatic precipitators market. These big companies are influencing market prices and other initiatives. This product development is planned for a larger run. Organizations are investing a significant amount in the electrostatic precipitator market for R&D, innovations, and technological advancements. This approach gives manufacturers a strong market hold with advanced products. They can also enjoy a competitive lead among other market players. The growth in the coal-fired power plant and cement industry will lead to the expansion in the electrostatic precipitator market.

An electrostatic precipitator, also known as electrostatic air cleaner uses electric charge to eradicate certain impurities from air or other gases in smokestacks. Originally developed for recovery of valuable industrial-process materials, the electrostatic precipitators are currently gaining significant traction for air pollution control. Electrostatic precipitators are ubiquitous today, especially in thermal power plants, owing to burgeoning concerns related to environmental pollution. The electrostatic precipitators are primarily used for removing particles from waste gases across power-generating stations and industrial facilities.

As electrostatic precipitators are highly effective at reducing particle pollution, including small particles, roughly 1 micron in diameter, as well as particles 0.01 micron in diameter in some cases, their adoption is accelerating at a fast pace. Industries are increasingly utilizing electrostatic precipitators for cleaning up flue gases. Growing stringency of international standards to reduce air emissions coupled with rapid industrialization in the emerging economies is driving growth in electrostatic precipitator market. Such factors pushed the electrostatic precipitator market to reach a value roughly US$ 6 billion in 2018.

Stringent Regulations on Industrial Emissions Strengthening Growth in Electrostatic Precipitator Market 

Burgeoning government measures to limit particulate matter, due to the rising air borne health issues is driving growth in electrostatic precipitator market. Adoption of numerous emission control measures, such as tax burdens and the need to upgrade prevailing systems will further complement the electrostatic precipitator industry landscape.  For instance, the U.S. based manufacturing as well as industrial units need to comply with the emission regulations imposed by the National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants. As a result of such regulations, manufacturers are utilizing industrial emission control systems, such as electrostatic precipitators. These growing emission regulations, coupled with a proliferating industrial sector is underpinning growth in the electrostatic precipitators market.

Dry Electrostatic Precipitator System Expected to Gain Significant Share in Market

The adoption of dry electrostatic precipitators has grown significantly in recent years, on the back of their ability to withstand extreme temperatures and high particulate volumes, low power consumption, and low cost. These properties have made dry electrostatic precipitators ideal for installations across cement, pulp & paper, glass manufacturing, thermal power & electricity, and metals processing plants. Furthermore, as dry electrostatic precipitators are highly cost-effective and consume low electricity they reduce the overall operational cost considerably, which is driving their adoption across industries.

Extensive Industrial Applications of Electrostatic Precipitators Boosting their Sales

Electrostatic precipitators are widely used to remove dirt from flue gases in steam plants, oil mists in machine shops, acid mists in chemical process plants, and to purify air in ventilation and air conditioning systems. Such growing applications of electrostatic precipitators in the industrial landscape are driving growth in the market.

High Capital Cost and Lack of Operational Flexibility Restricting Market Growth

Electrostatic precipitators have a significant initial capital cost. As these industrial emission control systems are expensive to purchase and install, small-scale industries don’t buy them. Additionally, their set up needs large space. Also, electrostatic precipitators don’t offer operational flexibility as their capacity can’t be changed once they are installed.
