The global entrained bed gasifier market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6.8% during the forecast period, 2017-2028. This growth is attributed to factors such as the increasing need for renewable energy sources and the rising demand for gasification in chemical industries. The fixed bed segment dominated the market in 2016 owing to its higher efficiency when compared with fluidized bed technology. Fluidized bed gasifiers are expected to make up a substantial share over the forecast period, 2027-2028 due to their high thermal efficiency and lower cost of operation.
An entrained bed gasifier is a type of gasification process which combines natural coal with oxygen and steam in order to convert the coal into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, water vapor, and other gases. The resulting syngas can be used for heating purposes or converted into fuels like methane (natural gas) or liquid hydrocarbons through additional processing. One advantage of entrained bed gasifiers is their ability to produce more hydrogen (H) than other types of coal conversion systems.
On the basis of type, the global entrained bed gasifier market is segmented into fixed-bed and fluidized-bed.
The Fixed Bed type uses a solid material (coal) in order to produce heat for conversion while Fluidized Bed uses vaporized gases instead for heating purposes. The fixed bed entrained gasifier consists of a series of fuel injectors and an air supply, which are used to provide the basic oxygen required for combustion. This configuration may be set up as either horizontal or vertical type. The design is advantageous because it can use low-grade fuels that have been previously rejected by other systems. It also has relatively high operational stability when compared with fluidized bed types, since there is no risk of "tip out" due to lack of control over particle suspension in the reactor vessel. However, this system requires more attention during start-up than does a fluidized bed model and needs longer periods between changes in operating conditions such as heat input or fuel loadings (International Energy Agency).
A fluidized-bed entrained bed gasifier is a process that converts coal and other solid fuels into syngas. The conversion of the fuel takes place in an oxygen-deficient environment, which also prevents any explosions from happening. This type of gasification method can be used for many different types of applications including chemical production, refining, or power generation at petroleum refineries and thermal plants.
Fluidized Bed Gasifiers are commonly utilized where high heat content coals such as anthracite with low ash contents need to be converted to energy sources while minimizing sulfur dioxide emissions (SOx). In this way, they allow carbon capture during combustion by using flue gases to supply both water vapor for precipitation reactions and makeup air for dilution of the pollutant gases.
On the basis of applications, the global entrained bed gasifiers market is segmented into Chemical & Refining industry, Power Industry, and Agriculture industry respectively.

In the power industry, entrained bed gasifiers are used to produce steam and heat. This is then utilized by electric generators or thermal power plants. Entrained gasifier combustion chambers can also be used as a part of an internal combustion engine such as reciprocating engines (diesel) or turbine-based engines (steam turbines).
Entrenched Bed Gasification (EBG) technology can be applied in various agricultural operations globally such as rice milling/processing, sugar production from sugar cane, or beetroot processing which enables sustainable bio-energy use with low emissions profile including NOx emission control. EBG systems can be used to produce bio-fuel from straw, wheat, and other crops for use in local combustion engines.
On the basis of region, the global entrained bed gasifiers market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
North America: North American entrained bed gasifiers market lucrative growth opportunities for the years to come due to increasing demand from chemical applications. Increasing shale oil production in this region is expected to fuel the industrialization of processes throughout other regions such as Latin America and the Asia Pacific which will result in increased demand for equipment related to shale extraction processes including surface mining machinery. In North America, the demand for EBG has been mainly from power generation. The country with the largest consumption of entrained bed gasifiers in North America is Canada which accounted for around 41% of total global sales during 2018. It was followed by the USA (37%) and Mexico (14%). Other regions such as Latin America or Europe are likely to register slower growth rates owing to political instability in these countries.
In the coming years, there is an increased demand for EBG in North America owing to technological advancement in shale extraction processes and growth in power generation. The global market size was valued at USD 225 million during 2018 and is expected to reach approximately USD 457 million by 2028, growing at a projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR)of 12% from 2019-2028.
The growth factors that have been influencing the global entrained bed gasifier market are economic development, government regulations, and environmental concerns. The governments of many countries across the world have placed stringent restrictions on fossil fuel emissions in order to protect their environment from pollution. The need for cleaner energy sources is also high due to these reasons.
