Study Goals and Objectives
The objective of this report—Air Pollution Control Equipment: Technologies and Global Markets—is to discuss the changes and new developments in the air pollution control equipment market and the opportunities presented by air pollution control equipment and technologies to various stakeholders in the market. To indicate the growth opportunity presented by air pollution control equipment to various stakeholders and participants, the report forecasts market demand from 2016 through 2021, with historical data for 2015. The report presents an opportunity for all stakeholders in the air pollution control equipment market to understand various growth drivers, key trends, growing segments and technologies.

Reasons for Doing This Study
BCC Research is publishing this study because it has identified air pollution control equipment and technologies as a growing market that presents strong growth opportunities for all stakeholders. The market is dynamic and growing with new developments and adoption from new industries and sectors.

Scope of Report
Definition

BCC Research defines air pollution control equipment as equipment used to control indoor and outdoor air pollution through use of various filters and technologies. Air pollution control equipment is used to control and eliminate various forms of pollutants such as poisonous and harmful gases, pollen, dust and smoke. Air pollution control equipment is used to control and eliminate chemical pollution, biological pollution and physical pollution. Air pollution control equipment is extensively used by industries that are highly regulated and are known to be a pollution causing industry.

Air pollution control equipment is used by industrial, commercial and residential end users, with industrial end users—due to their very nature of operation—being the major end users. However,
declining air quality and concerns of air-born pollutants among the public has led to residential end users becoming the strongest growing segment.

Air pollution control equipment consists of hardware and software. However, hardware forms the main component of air pollution control equipment. Software serves as an interface between the hardware (filter and other equipment) and the user. Sometimes, software can also be used to record the data and compare it with historical data or data from other regions. The main part of an air pollution control equipment is the filter, which can be of various types such as HEPA (high efficiency particulate air), electrostatic precipitators and activated carbon filters.

Scope
To calculate and segment the market, we have mainly considered air pollution control equipment only. However, we have also considered services revenue that a company reports within its total revenue. The report also includes companies that may not be exclusively air pollution control equipment manufacturers themselves, but market the products as their own by incorporating filters from other manufacturers.

Standalone services and software that are directly not part of air pollution control equipment is beyond the scope of this report. Aftermarket software, hardware and services are also beyond the scope of this report. For the purposes of this report, aftermarket is defined as revenue from companies that are only involved in aftermarket sales of products and services. However, total sales/total revenue is considered for companies that manufacture air pollution control equipment. (This total revenue consists of product revenue and services revenue.)

Further, services that are not directly related to air pollution control equipment, such as education, consulting and training, are beyond the scope of this report. Additionally, air quality monitoring equipment is considered as a separate market and hence is beyond the scope of this study.

The scope and coverage in this current report has changed slightly from the previous (ENV021A) version. In ENV021A, the market value included revenue from companies that are involved in aftermarket sales and services as well. However, inclusion of aftermarket revenue resulted in the inclusion of a very large number of smaller players that are active in the aftermarket services and products manufacture and supply space. Many of these smaller players from the emerging regions are unorganized, and revenue, sales and other figures for these smaller unorganized players remains doubtful. Hence, to do away with this confusion and uncertainty, the scope has been changed and in the current version, revenue from companies that are only involved in aftermarket sales of products and services are excluded.

The report begins by introducing the reader to how the market for air pollution control equipment and technologies has evolved over time and how various factors are impacting the market. Building on that understanding, the study proceeds to identify the following factors in the market:

-Primary forces with a direct impact on the air pollution control equipment and technologies markets.
-Secondary forces that have an indirect impact.
-Key funding and financing in this space, which are particularly supportive for new entrants.
-Some key challenges that may hinder the growth of this market.
-Key trends visible in the market.
-The top applications of air pollution control equipment, along with the top air pollution control equipment segments.
-Demand in the North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and South America for air pollution control equipment.

Information Sources
BCC Research studied more than 100 companies to obtain data for this report. The companies studied range from air pollution control equipment manufacturers to end users of air pollution control equipment (e.g., automotive companies, governments and residential users) to air pollution control equipment-related software providers. Studies prepared for peer-reviewed professional literature and reports by technical experts were also reviewed. Other data came from scientific and technical conferences, presentations prepared by the companies and associates, press releases, annual reports, white papers, investor webinars and government sources that are publicly available.

Methodology
To undertake this forecast, BCC Research analyzed the markets for related technologies and products (products and solutions that are related to the air pollution control equipment market), as available in the product literature and catalogs and forward-looking statements made by public companies. Press releases, innovations and research and development papers, white papers and presentations were also consulted as well as data from other independent sources.

BCC Research used a dual approach to forecast and estimate the values for the air pollution control equipment market.

Firstly, BCC Research analyzed spending by various key air pollution control equipment providers and users. Global, regional and sector-specific air pollution control equipment spending was analyzed. Further, other factors, such as the overall increase in the adoption of air pollution control equipment were also analyzed. To arrive at the final figures, BCC Research also estimated the overall budget allocation and the forecast spending by major companies around the world.

Secondly, BCC Research created a detailed survey and collected opinions from industry and domain experts, company executives and others with strong knowledge in the space to provide a qualitative assessment of the trends in the market. Along with the qualitative data, the survey also indicated some quantitative data sets and figures.

The final values were obtained through a combination of the above methods. Compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) were calculated by assigning the appropriate weight to various markets (e.g. various types of air pollution control filters) that significantly impact the air pollution control equipment market.

Calculations were performed using company growth that occurred in this space over the past five to 10 years, along with other factors such as growth in budget allocation, growth of air pollution control equipment in the past and by analyzing the relationship between sectoral growth and the growth of air pollution control equipment in the past.

Estimated values used are based on manufacturers’ total revenues.
