Report Highlights

  • The total Chinese market for pollution control products and equipment reached $5.3 billion in 2001. Rising at an AAGR (average annual growth rate) of 15.1%, this market will reach nearly $10.7 in 2006.
  • The air pollution control industry, by 2006, will reach $4.2 billion, growing at an impressive AAGR of 16.4%. Now accounting for 38% of the total market, this segment will reach 40% in 2006.
  • By 2006, the water pollution control industry market will exceed $6 billion, growing at an AAGR of 14.2%. Its share of the market will drop from 59% to 57% in 2006.

As a developing country, China had been sacrificing its environment to develop its economy. Over the past few years, the Chinese government began to recognize that sustainable economic development was most important and paid unprecedented attention to the environmental protection and control industry. Huge government investments, stricter environmental protection and control regulations and preferential policies now are supporting development of this sector.

This BCC report provides an in-depth analysis of China's environmental protection and control industry including water, air and land pollution control (MSW). It covers industry background and structure, policy and regulation, technology and equipment/products, industry leaders, end users, international cooperation, etc. Market forecasts are presented for the period from 2001 through 2006.


Although China's environmental protection and control industry has been expanding rapidly of late, because of its low technology, industrialization level and shortage of capital, local industry cannot meet the requirements of the country's fast moving economy. The government encourages foreign players to enter this industry, elevating their technology, management levels and enriching their financing channels.

This BCC report is intended to reveal opportunities and technology development trends in China's environmental protection and control industry.


The environmental protection and control industry can be divided into the following sectors:

  • products and equipment manufacturing
  • service and waste recycling utilization
  • ecosystem protection
  • nonhazardous products manufacturing

According to the products/equipment application, this sector can be divided into water pollution control, air pollution control, land pollution (municipal solid waste or MSW) control, noise and vibration control and the environment monitoring industry.

This BCC report focuses on the following product/equipment manufacturing industries:

  • water pollution control
    • industrial wastewater treatment
    • urban wastewater treatment
  • air pollution control
    • desulfurization (SO2 and NOx capture)
    • dust control
    • vehicle emission control
  • land pollution control
    • municipal solid waste (MSW) treatment.


The material presented is based on extensive reviews of secondary sources such as technical papers, industry conferences, trade publications, industry associations, company literature, and government on-line data.

Our final analyses and projections are based on a combination of a consensus among the secondary sources combined with our understanding of the impact of trends from a historical perspective. All dollar projections presented in this report are in 2000 constant dollars.
