UV disinfection equipment finds application in drinking water, wastewater, and process water treatment. High R&D investments by the manufacturers to enhance the performance of UV disinfection equipment for large volume applications such as municipal drinking water and industrial process water treatment is expected to drive the market growth. Supporting government policies for water and wastewater treatment has accelerated the technology growth in developing countries such as India and China. In addition, rapid industrialization in these developing countries has resulted in air and water pollution, which in turn affected the rain falls and purity of natural water resources. Surge in demand for clean and safe drinking water, owing to rise in population and scarcity for freshwater resources is expected to have a positive impact on the UV disinfection equipment market. Furthermore, ongoing COVID-19 pandemic across the globe has led to increase in demand for automated UV-C light-based surface disinfection systems. The demand has been raised especially from healthcare industry and commercial institutions to stop the transmission of corona virus by avoiding the manual cleaning practices. This factor is expected to drive the growth of the UV disinfection equipment market during the forecast period.

However, factors such as low cost of conventional disinfectants as compared to UV lights are expected to hinder the growth of this market. In addition, growth of the healthcare and chemical industries and growth in adoption of far-UVC lamps for surface disinfection and air treatment are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the market growth.

Covid-19 Analysis:

  • UV disinfection equipment are the devices that use UV-C light to produce a germicidal effect. The importance of UV-C lamps in UV disinfection devices has increased considerably, owing to their effectiveness in destroying the RNA and DNA of the microorganisms such as molds, bacteria, viruses, and yeasts. Globally, hospitals are now using UV-C lamps to disinfect the surfaces and air. The global turmoil created by the deadly COVID-19 pandemic outbreak have led to implementation of best hygiene and social distancing practices, besides improving air quality.
  • According to Fresh Aire UV, a leading manufacturer of UV disinfection equipment, the demand for UV disinfection equipment has been surged by 1,000.0% during the COVID-19 pandemic due to growing demand from residential and commercial end-use industries. The most popular demand during the COVID-19 pandemic is UV-C surface disinfection and air treatment for offices and hospitals.
  • The production of UV disinfection equipment is likely to experience a downfall during the COVID-19 pandemic due to affected supply chain amid lockdown.
  • Soft glass is the raw material used in manufacturing of UV-C lamps. China is the main supplier of soft glass across the globe, but amid lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic outbreak government of various countries have imposed restrictions on mobility and transportation from China. Due to this, the UV-C lamps manufacturers are now preferring quartz glass over soft glass as it provides superior performance and allows for a huge jump in wattage.
  • According to the UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization), the MSME (Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises) sector across the developing economy like India has been worst affected due to outbreak of COVID-19 and the lockdown imposed thereafter. The 30%-70% of pre-COVID-19 workforce of this sector have migrated back to their hometowns due to uncertainties and loss of income during the lockdown. Therefore, when the restrictions will be lifted the production of UV disinfection equipment is likely to decrease or will be very less due to low availability of workers at the workplaces.

Analyst Review

According to analyst, UV disinfection is a process of treating water, air, or surface by making use of ultraviolet lamps instead of the usual chemical treatment. When UV lights are used at a wavelength of 254 nm, it destroys molecular bonds of DNA of microorganism, which kills or inactivates the microorganism. The growing emphasis on the use of chemical free disinfection methods has given an impetus to the UV disinfection equipment market. The key applications of the UV disinfection equipment market are water treatment, wastewater treatment, air treatment, process water treatment, and surface treatment. 

The increase in urge to provide safe drinking water in emerging nations is one the major driving factors for the UV disinfection equipment market, as UV disinfection is considered as the safest water treatment method in developing economies like India and China. Moreover, chemical disinfectants leave behind chemical by-products in water, whereas UV does not leave behind any residues. In addition, it is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective treatment method compared to other disinfection methods such as ozonation and ultrasonic treatment. Furthermore, COVID-19 pandemic outbreak across the globe has led to increase in demand for UV-C lamp to be used in UV disinfection equipment used for surface disinfection and air treatment across the commercial and industrial sector. Moreover, in 2020, the demand for UV disinfection equipment has been surged for surface disinfection application as compared to air treatment application, owing to corona virus outbreak.
