Government and Industries Taking Initiatives to Contribute Towards Reducing Air Pollution Levels; Industry to Reach $78.4 Billion in 2019

March 31, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., March 31, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report on air pollution control equipment, with the industrial sector significantly contributing to the negative changes in air quality, air pollution has grown to be a pressing global issue. The declaration of 2013 as the "Year of Air" by the European Union (E.U.) is a testament to the magnitude and the effects of air pollution.

The global market for air pollution control equipment was valued at approximately $56.6 billion in 2013 and $60.9 billion in 2014. This is expected to reach $78.4 billion in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% from 2014 to 2019. Asia-Pacific was the largest market at roughly $29.5 billion, equating to half (52.1%) of the global revenues for air pollution control equipment in 2013. Rapid industrialization coupled with increasing coal-fired power plants to fulfill energy requirements are the reasons for this region’s significant growth. The market is predicted to reach $46.2 billion in 2019, with a CAGR of 6.7% from 2014 to 2019.

Air pollutants such as carbon dioxide and the other greenhouse gases believed to contribute to global warming are primarily products of the combustion of fossil fuels. Gases such as sulfur dioxide also contribute to the problems of smog and acid rain. Global warming, an after-effect of increasing air pollution, is one of the major issues attracting considerable attention lately by governments and authorities globally. This is leading to heightened international dialogue, policy changes and technological innovations.

“The governments of many nations have responded by raising air quality standards for industrial producers by requiring new and cleaner production technologies,” says BCC Research analyst Swathy Rajasekaran. “Industries have responded by developing new technologies to reduce air pollution emissions from their production processes and by developing more environmentally friendly consumer products.”
