The global air pollution control systems market size in terms of revenue was valued at USD 66.62 billion by 2017 and is expected to exhibit a 5.1% CAGR during the forecast period.
Alarming levels of pollution, along with government regulations, are encouraging the adoption of air pollution control systems. Rising urbanization leading to growing respiratory issues in urban areas are significantly driving the global air pollution control system market.
Growing adoption of air pollution control systems, increasing awareness towards the significance of environmental preservation, and ongoing efforts to promote adoption of renewable fuels over fossil fuels by the governing bodies are among the other factors predicted to boost the global air pollution control system market. Several countries’ governing bodies are announcing strict regulations to substantially minimize uncontrolled use of fossil fuels that result in widespread emissions of harmful gases and particulate matter.
Contaminated air contains unsafe substances in highly concentrated form and this affects the ecology in undesirable way. Unfavourable effects such as damage to environment at a large, damaging health of human health. The eco system is susceptible to pollution from human activities and natural sources. One of the largest originators of air contaminants is combustion processes, and industries which utilize this combustion process at the core of their functionality are said to be among the major contributors to air pollution.
Chemical and gas scrubbers are commonly used equipment for air pollution control. Catalytic converters are air pollution control systems which convert gases emitted by industrial exhausts and hazardous pollutants into non-hazardous particulate matter by forming a redox reaction, where there is an oxidation and a reduction reaction.
Some of the most prominent users of air pollution control systems are chemical industries. These industries include manufacturers of specialty chemicals, basic chemicals, niche chemicals, and consumer chemicals.
