Emission monitoring system is a tool used to monitor flue gas for carbon monoxide, oxygen, and carbon diode to provide information for combustion control in industrial facilities. It is comprised of several components that can determine gas or particulate matter concentration or emission rate of specific pollutants. EMS software can produce results of the applicable emission limitation or standards in units. EMS is typically used in various industries such as power generation, petrochemicals, chemicals, and oil & gas.

Market Statistics:

The global emission monitoring system market is expected to surpass US$ 8,843.41 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2028.

Market Driver

Increasing need for environmental protection is expected to boost the global emission monitoring system market growth over the forecast period. The carbon emission has serious repercussions on the environment, which eventually harms human health as well. Air pollution has become a severe global problem, which requires a joint effort. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), air pollution kills around 7 million people globally every year. It can lead to severe chronic diseases such as stroke, respiratory infections, lung cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Such harmful environmental impact has increased the need for protection and urgency to curb carbon emission from industries as well as vehicles. Emission monitoring system provides data regarding the emission of gases from a particular building or facility, which can help to governing authority to reduce it. Many government agencies have enforced stringent regulatory standards on carbon emission with the deployment of EMS.

Market Opportunity

Increasing research and development activities can present significant market opportunities in the global emission monitoring system market. Many market players are focused on research and development activities in the emission monitoring systems and investment a significant fund, in order to innovate novel products. For instance, in April 2019, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) began an R&D project on smart monitoring emissions of diesel vehicles. It received grants from the National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore. Moreover, in January 2018, the Corporate Research Council of Intel launched a joint R&D project with the Department of Science and Technology (DST), India on real-time air and water quality monitoring.

Global Emission Monitoring System Market: Recent Developments

  1. In Jan 2021, ABB unveiled an emissions monitoring system that will help the maritime industry achieve its decarbonisation targets.
  2. In November 2019, Ametek Land launched two new continuous emission-monitoring systems (PM-CEMS) to provide accurate and reliable measurement of particulate matter from industrial combustion processes in stacks and ducts.

Market Restraint

Technical challenges related to adherence to regulatory norms are expected to hamper the global emission monitoring system market growth over the forecast period. There are stringent regulatory frameworks that create certain challenges in the adoption of emission monitoring system. These challenges are regarding the maintenance of the instruments and designs. The EMS operated under harsh conditions and extreme weather. These systems can be used in various industry settings, which makes it even more difficult to provide precise and reliable data.

Global Emission Monitoring System Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has been both positive and negative on the global emission monitoring system market. Emission monitoring system enables connectivity with the control system via standard protocols to obtain real-time process data for generating the emission estimations. With many countries choosing the nationwide lockdown policies, the market was impacted with temporary suspension in economic activities. However, emission monitoring system has helped monitoring and analyzing the environment quality efficiently. In fact, many organizations and environmental agencies have started using EMS to detect, monitor, and analyze pollution levels in the environment. The negative impact of COVID-19 is short term as more and more organizations are adopting EMS solutions.
