Market for Fabric Filter Resins Adhesives, Fibers, Coatings and Binders to Surge to more than $1 Billion by 2023

A switch from precipitators to fabric filters for the capture of dust from coal-fired boilers will boost sales of media and other components purchased by filter element suppliers to $2,250 million in 2023.  The resins, adhesives, fibers, coatings and binders purchased by media suppliers will generate revenues of $1,125 million.  This is the conclusion of the McIlvaine Company in World Fabric Filter & Elements Market.

The forecasts for components has been derived from the purchases at each level.  The filter element supplier purchases are calculated as a percentage of revenue.  The same approach is used in calculating the resins and other items purchased by the media manufacturers.

If all the coal-fired boilers in the world switched to fabric filters, the market for media, resins, etc. would double, much of the resin growth will be in PPS.

One recent market report emphasized that automotive growth would drive global polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) market demand from 80,000 tons in 2014 to 140,000 tons by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.3 percent from 2015 to 2022. This would result in revenue of $1.6 billion in 2022. This does not take into account the surge in coal-fired power plant use which would be hundreds of millions of dollars.  Several years ago, Lumena projected a Chinese market for PPS for hot gas applications at 50,000 tons per year. This assumed a substantial number of Chinese coal-fired power plants switched to fabric filtration. This has not yet happened.

Instead of starting with resins and media production and analyzing the growth in each industry, it is desirable to start with the end users and determine their demand requirements in the future.  McIlvaine is pursuing this approach in all its filtration market reports.

$10 Billion/yr. FGD Market

Coal-fired power plants will spend $10 billion/yr. to remove SO2 over the next few years.  This includes the capital investment, repair, replacement and consumables.  The capital investment will be lower than at a peak in 2010 but the other segments continue to grow.  The various factors are continually assessed in McIlvaine’s N027 FGD Market and Strategies.

Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) is a term used to describe SO2 removal from coal-fired power plants. The U.S. will continue to operate more than 200,000 MW of FGD systems, but will not build new coal-fired power plants.  China already operates four times as many coal-fired power plants as the U.S. and will continue to build more but at a reduced rate.  The big variable is the use of FGD for coal-fired power plants in India, Vietnam and Indonesia.  There are new SO2 regulations in India.  The limits vary by age and size of the boiler. Power plants in coastal areas are likely to use seawater as the scrubbing liquor.  This approach reduces capital cost and eliminates the costly lime or limestone.

Another variable is the type of FGD which will be employed.  Dry FGD necessitates purchase of lime or sodium.  These reagents are much costlier than limestone.  But dry FGD requires much less capital investment than wet limestone. India suffers from lack of water and is likely to lean toward the dry methods.  On the other hand, the wet limestone results in salable gypsum while dry FGD results in a waste which must be landfilled or converted to low value construction products. One option is a two-stage scrubbing system which results in both sulfuric and hydrochloric acid byproducts.  This design also has the potential to separate rare earths at a much lower cost than the methods being researched by the USDOE and the Chinese government.

There is a large and growing market to maintain and operate FGD systems.  Remote monitoring allows a vendor to cost effectively support operations thousands of miles away.
