The global sludge dewatering equipment market is expected to grow over the forecast period owing to the Increasing requirements for the minimization of global water footmark and optimum treated water quality yields in emerging economies such as Asia Pacific and Central and South America. Furthermore, rising awareness of sludge disposal is one of the key factor driving the demand for sludge dewatering equipment across the globe.
Sludge dewatering is used for extraction of water from the solids and dispose the dewatered residue. Sludge dewatering used both the approach of centralized and decentralized means of treating the sewage produced during municipal and industrial treatment. Septic tanks, bio filters or aerobic treatment systems are the majorly used decentralized equipment. On the other hand, centralized sludge systems are used in the form of sewerage and piping systems.
Rising mining activity in developing countries including Mexico, Peru, Chile, and South Africa as a result of government support for promoting investments is expected to play a crucial role in increasing sewage and sludge formation. As a result, sludge treatment equipment is expected to expand in mining applications over the period of forecast.
Many governments have introduced stringent regulations for wastewater emission for municipal as well as industrial sectors that are expected to drive the sludge treatment equipment market over the forecast period. Key governmental authorities such as European Environment Agency (EEA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) are playing a key role to improve the quality of water environments and prevent water pollution.
On the basis of technology the market is segmented into centrifuges, screw press, belt filter press, and others. Belt press filter technology segment is expected to grow substantially over the forecast period on account of its high capacity output, low installation cost, continuous feed operation, and low energy running cost.
Centrifuges sludge dewatering equipment separate solids from liquids through centrifugal force and sedimentation. Centrifuge have a benefits of low capital cost, moderate operational cost, and low drying time. Centrifuge are widely used in municipal waste water treatment and heavy oil sludge treatment applications.
Growing urban population, increasing investment and government support to promote infrastructure development is anticipated to foresee tremendous demand in municipal sectors of developing markets including Turkey, China, India, Thailand, and Bangladesh resulting in key driving factors for growth in sludge dewatering equipment market.
The Industrial application segment has numerous applications for processed and raw water in numerous industries including paper & pulp, chemical, food & beverages, refineries, mining, and pharmaceuticals, among others. Rapid urbanization, technological advancements, and increasing production units resulting in augmented demand processed water, which is a key driving factor for market over the forecast period.
The geographical scope is segmented on the basis of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to have the largest demand for sludge dewatering equipment over the forecast period. Rising industrialization, technological developments, and growth in infrastructure are major driving factor for high demand in fresh and processed water, resulting high growth in the market.
The market benefits from the number of regulations enacted by the regulatory authorities across Europe and North America. European market plays a crucial role in the overall sludge dewatering equipment market. The enhancing technological innovations in the region in order to gain market dominance and maintain competitiveness shall prove to be a major factor boosting the market growth.
The Middle East & Africa region is characterized by the presence of a large number of wastewater treatment plants owing to the absence of substantial freshwater sources. Growing per-capita consumption of water coupled with rise in population as a result of increased immigration into the region is projected to augment the market growth for the sludge dewatering equipment over the forecast period.
The major players are focusing more on the economies of scope than economies of scale as sludge dewatering equipment is used extensively in industrial and municipal sectors for sludge treatment. As a result, product innovations and extensive marketing activities hold significant importance in order to gain a competitive edge in the market.
Overall, the global sludge dewatering equipment market is extremely competitive and dependent on technological improvements and product development. Market players strive to attain application development to achieve a competitive advantage over their competitors. The presence of local players in the Asia Pacific poses a substantial threat to the large multinational companies in terms of price and product quality offered to the customers.
Key market players operating across sludge dewatering equipment includes Suez Environnement, Hitachi Zosen Corporation, Evoqua Water Technologies, Andritz, Inc., Keppel Seghers, ENCON Evaporators, Veolia, Kontek Process Water Management, Alfa Laval, Huber SE, Flo Trend Systems, Phoenix Process Equipment, Hiller Separation & Process, Aqseptence, Flottweg, Sebright Products and Komline-Sanderson.
