Wastewater Treatment Equipment Market Outlook - 2021–2030

The global wastewater treatment equipment market size was valued at $28.0 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $41.8 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2021 to 2030.

Wastewater treatment equipment includes all the equipment that are currently employed in wastewater treatment plants. There are various techniques by which wastewater is treated. Each technique has its own pros and cons. Some of the major techniques include membranes, biological methods, and sludge & types of disinfection. Each of these techniques are used as a standalone treatment technique or in series with each other. Membrane techniques can be further classified into reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, microfiltration, and nanofiltration.

Surge in population coupled with factors such as industrialization, and stringent wastewater treatment regulations presently drive the growth of the global wastewater treatment equipment market. It is important to maintain the balance between potable water and industrially usable water, thus, reusing industrial water from effluents becomes important. Moreover, the rate of industrialization has grown significantly in the recent years and has paved the way for more wastewater treatment capacities.  

The major factor hampering the global wastewater treatment is the high cost of equipment itself as well as plant operational costs. Treatment plants consume huge amounts of energy for water processing and chemical treatments. In addition, technologies such as chemical and biological treatment require the storage of treatment chemicals that adds to the cost. The scope of such technologies are limited in underdeveloped economies, thus limiting the growth of the global wastewater treatment equipment market. Despite such a restraint, the rise in awareness toward water conservation as well as energy efficiency offers fresh opportunities for market growth during the forecast period. Developments in water treatment technology and new water treatment chemicals are projected to help reduce the cost of treatment. A global shift in water treatment regulations increase the demand for a wastewater treatment plant in the coming years.  

The global wastewater treatment equipment market is segmented into product, process, application, and region. By product, the market is classified into membrane separation, biological, sludge, disinfection, and others. By membrane separation, it is further classified into reverse osmosis membrane, ultrafiltration membrane, microfiltration membrane, nanofiltration membrane, and others. By process, the market is divided into primary treatment, secondary treatment, and tertiary treatment. By application, the market is bifurcated into industrial and municipal. By region, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Presently, Asia-Pacific accounts for the largest share of the market, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Analyst Review

Rise in global population and industrialization has increased water scarcity and industrial water consumption, which in turn, boosts the demand for wastewater treatment equipment. Industrial consumption of water is capped for avoiding human consumption shortage, as a result industries are required to install an in-house wastewater treatment plant to treat wastewater. Industrial expansion is expected to continue during the forecast period, thus favoring the growth of the global wastewater treatment equipment market during the forecast period.

The ongoing COVID-19 has further increased the demand for wastewater treatment equipment. According to the U.S. EPA, wastewater treatment plants treat viruses and other pathogens, including coronavirus that causes COVID-19 infection. Hence, standard treatment and disinfectant processes at wastewater treatment plants are expected to be effective in treatment of wastewater.
