World Gas Treatment Market to Reach $35 Billion Next Year

The investment to remove noxious gases from exhaust stacks combined with the investment in treating process gases in 2017 will generate revenues of $35 billion for system suppliers. This is the conclusion reached by the McIlvaine Company by aggregating forecasts appearing in three of its market reports.

Gas Treatment Revenues Worldwide 2017
Application $ Million
Power Plant Flue Gas Desulfurization 2,700
Power Plant and Industrial DeNOx 8,500
Industrial Exhaust Noxious Gas Removal 7,800
Process Gas Treatment 16,000
Total 35,000

The market for power plant flue gas desulfurization (FGD) will be taking a temporary nose dive as China completes its retrofit program and activity in Europe and the U.S. is weak. On the other hand, China continues a massive coal-to-chemicals and syngas program which requires removal of acid gas, mercury, H2O and certain other gases.

The DeNOx market will be strong with a mix of purchases by power, cement, incineration and refinery operators. 

The gas treatment capex for upstream oil and gas will be weak, but treatment investment by the petrochemical companies in the U.S., China and elsewhere will be strong.
