Biological Wastewater Treatment Market Analysis 2020-2027:
Biological wastewater treatment is the method of harnessing microorganism, nematodes, and other microbes from wastewater. Biological wastewater treatment uses natural method to aid the decomposition of natural materials in water. The primary goal of biological wastewater treatment is to create a system resulting in the decomposition of the wastewater, which may be easily gathered for disposal and reuse. This treatment is more powerful and cost-effective as compared to every other chemical and mechanical methods.
Although the method of organic wastewater treatment seems to be simple, , in reality, it is a complex process and still under research. The contents which are present in wastewater are inclusive of organic matter such as garbage, wastes, and partly digested foods. Wastewater may additionally incorporate pathogenic organisms, heavy metals, and pollutants.

COVID-19 scenario analysis
The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has disrupted the global economy by halting the operations of various industries. The WHO stated that washing hands with soap and water is one of the basic methods to fight coronavirus. However, research proves that almost 3billion people do not have access to clean water. Thus, this population is highly prone to the life-threatening virus. Thus, developed countries are focusing more on the supply of clean water. This has increased the demand for wastewater treatment across the globe. Thus, the demand for biological wastewater treatment is expected to accelerate during the forecast period.
Market scenario analysis
Increase in population coupled with rapid industrialization, aging infrastructure, water shortage, and stringent policies concerning the disposal of wastewater into the surroundings or for reuse are factors predicted to drive the growth of the biological wastewater treatment market during the forecast duration. Depending on process, the biological wastewater treatment market is bifurcated into aerobic and anaerobic. The aerobic segment is expected to account for a larger share of the biological wastewater treatment market, owing to the efficiency of the aerobic process in processing, easy layout, and low capital cost. However, the anaerobic segment is anticipated to grow considerably during the forecast period, due to low production of sludge, low consumption of power, and production of by-products, including methane gas after process. The biological wastewater treatment finds its application in diverse industries, including pulp & paper, meat & poultry, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. As most of the industries use biological wastewater treatment for their everyday operation, it is expected to boost the overall market growth in the near future.
Rise in industrialization and government policies for preserving water are the key driving factors of the global biological wastewater treatment market. Many of the industries require water in massive volume for daily operations. Usage of fresh water can create a scarcity in water for the population. With the assistance of biological wastewater treatment, industries can reuse water for operational processes, which significantly contribute toward the growth of the global market. In addition, rapid expansion of pulp & paper, meat & poultry, chemical substances, pharmaceuticals, textile, dairy, breweries, oil & gas, and metal in developed as well as in developing countries across the globe is expected to boost the demand for biological wastewater treatment during the forecast period. Moreover, excessive biological oxygen demand (BOD) requirements in industrial wastewater treatment boost the global market growth.
High cost of wastewater treatment is anticipated to hamper the market growth, globally. Excessive installation cost, high setup value, and complex setup acts as the major challenges of the market growth. Furthermore, operational prices and sludge movement price incur additional cost during the wastewater treatment, thereby hampering the market growth. Moreover, lack of research and development activities in this market restrains the growth of the market, globally.
Region wise, the biological wastewater treatment market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to garner considerable share of the global biological wastewater treatment market. This is attributed to the economic development and increase in intake of water from various industries. However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at a notable rate, due to improvement in economic condition and investment made by the companies to setup units within the region. Furthermore, exponential growth in population, rapid industrialization, and increase in urbanization are anticipated to boost the expansion of the market within the region.
