An air preheater is a device used for heating air to increase the thermal efficiency of the process. The main use of air preheater is to recover heat from flue gas and reduce excessive heat loss through flue gas. It also helps to control the temperature of flue gas. This device is found in the path of flue gases between the chimney and economizer.

Air preheaters are preferred when the temperature of flue gas is very high. Some developing countries are seeing growth in power generation from coal due to increasing demand for energy in the past few years. Manufacturers are investing more in South Africa and the Asia Pacific region due to growing opportunities in emerging countries in these regions. These are major drivers expected to fuel the global air preheaters market. However, coal power plants have a huge impact on global warming and also adversely affect the climate goals laid down by the Paris Agreement. Many developed countries are shifting to power generation from renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. These factors are expected to hamper the growth of the air preheaters market during the forecast period.
