Dust control system is a device that is used to improve the air quality of the surrounding by removing the particulate matter from the air. Dust control systems find applications in numerous industries such as construction, mining, food, rubber, and more. Dust control systems can be operated manually or with remote control. Governments of various countries implementing stringent regulations and standards, in order to prevent workers from adverse effects of fumes and dust particles at worksite. Moreover, manufacturers are providing cost-efficient and high-performing dust control systems, in order to improve clean production process. There are two types of filters used namely dry type and wet type dust control systems.
The global dust control system market is estimated to account for US$ 13,813.4 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2019
Development of new products and advancements in technologies are expected to drive growth of the global dust control system market during the forecast period
Growing demand for dust control system for commercial as well as industrial use has compelled manufacturers to develop innovative products that can meet all types of requirements. For instance, in April 2016, Dust Control Systems Technology, a U.S.-based company, introduced a suppression cannon packaged with genset and mounted on a roadworthy trailer. In 2015, GRT Developments, an Australian company, launched a polymer binder to be applied on rural roads to minimize the dust percentage. Moreover, in May 2016, RST Group, an Australia-based company, introduced a new all-weather dynamic road dust suppressant for underground mining. In 2015, Soilworks LLC, a U.S.-based company, received the patent for the world’s first non-petroleum synthetic dust suppressants. Thus, increasing product launch and advancements in technologies are expected to boost the market growth in the near future.
Stringent regulatory policies from governments of various countries are expected to support demand for dust control systems
Governments various countries are focused on enhancing safety measures for individuals working in mining and construction industries. Thus, strict regulations and laws have been implemented regarding installation of dust control systems, in order to prevent workers from harmful effects of dust and chemical fumes. Moreover, growing awareness among various industries concerning benefits of dust controllers is expected to boost the demand for dust control systems. This, in turn, is expected to pose lucrative growth opportunities for market players in the near future.
High investment and maintenance cost are expected to hinder growth of the global dust control systems market during the forecast period
Dust control systems are expensive to purchase, especially for small- and mid-sized enterprises. Moreover, operational and maintenance cost for dust control system is high when compared to conventional systems. Compared to traditional methods of using water as a dust suppressant, new dust suppressants such as binders, foams, and surfactants are costlier by 10% to 15%. Furthermore, trained individuals are needed to operate these systems and apply new type of dust suppressants, which leads to additional expenses. Thus, these factors are expected to hinder the market growth in the near future.
Growing adoption of dust control systems in mining industries is expected to be a major trend
Several incidences of workers suffering from health issues due to dust have compelled the government to pass a law to mitigate dust from mine and mine hauling areas. For instance, various companies across the U.S. such as Quaker Chemical Corporation, Soilwork LLC, and EnviroTech Services., Inc. have introduced novel products for dust control systems in mines.
Use of dust control systems in power and utilities
Power plant owners are focused on minimizing emissions and dust from the plants. Power companies across the U.S. are involved in minimizing the effect of dust and emission on the environment. Moreover, companies such as GE Corporation and Dust Solutions Inc. are extending help to such industries with their products.
Rising demand for dust control systems in renewable energy systems
Developed countries such as France, Germany, and the U.K. are investing significantly in renewable energy systems such as in solar panels. In this, dust control systems are required for specific applications to control dust and prevent it from accumulating on solar panels.
Increasing infrastructure development is expected to boost the demand for dust control systems
Demolition of old buildings and construction new infrastructure creates a lot of dust. Infrastructural development across Western Europe is increasing with construction of expressways and bridges. This, in turn, is expected to create demand for dust control systems to control dust produced during construction activities.
Key companies operating in the global dust control systems market are Global Road Technology, Beltran Technologies, Inc., Camfil, Quaker Chemical Corporation, Sly Environmental Technology Ltd, Donaldson Company, Inc., JKF Industri A/S, and Nederman Holding AB.
