The global industrial sector is moving toward sustainable development, resulting in the continuous development and implementation of new technologies and innovations that have a minimum impact on the environment. The continuously rising investments in R&D activities for the incorporation of advanced technologies in water and wastewater treatment equipment expected to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Equipment Insights

The membrane separation equipment segment led the market and accounted for 20.2% of the global revenue share in 2021. Rising production activities and increasing investments in industrial equipment are also expected to fuel the market growth. Membrane separation offers several benefits such as superior filtration efficiency and minimum area required for operation over most of the existing water purification techniques.

The biological equipment segment accounted for 12.6% of the global revenue share in 2021. Stringent regulations at controlling water pollution in manufacturing and municipal levels through the utilization of eco-friendly means in developed markets, including the U.S., Canada, Germany, and Japan, are expected to upscale the requirement of biological treatment equipment for water as well as wastewater treatment.

The disinfection equipment segment is expected to register a CAGR of 4.4% in the forecast period. Disinfection is the removal of pathogenic microorganisms by chemical, physical or biological means. Rising importance of ultraviolet (UV) radiation technology in disinfection equipment owing to its ability to not release carcinogenic byproducts in the environment is expected to remain one of the favorable factors for the market growth.

The sludge treatment equipment segment of water and wastewater treatment equipment accounted for 16.2% of the global revenue share in 2021. Sludge dewatering is used for extraction of water from solids and disposing of dewatered residue. It uses both centralized and decentralized means of treating the sewage produced during municipal and industrial treatments.

Process Insights

The primary treatment process segment led the market and accounted for 19.4% of the global revenue share in 2021. Primary water & wastewater treatment involves removal of floating materials and heavy solids from effluent. Wastewater is passed through several tanks and filters that separate water from contaminants. Low operating cost and high market visibility of the abovementioned technology are expected to play a crucial role in increasing the application scope of primary treatment in the forecast period.

Companies are also trying to develop systems to increase primary treatment capacities where there is limited or less space or cost considerations to install more advanced treatment equipment. The use of primary treatment equipment such as screens or grit chambers is expected to grow in rural areas especially in the African countries where awareness about sewage treatment is beginning to grow.

The secondary treatment process accounted for 36.7% of the global revenue share in 2021. The increased usage of public sewers by rural homes is anticipated to put stress on current centralized wastewater treatment facilities. This is likely to create the need for new capacity development or expansion of existing capacity, which is predicted to boost demand for wastewater secondary treatment equipment in the forecast period.

The tertiary treatment process is expected to register a CAGR of 4.5% in the forecast period. Tertiary treatment is used to provide a final cleaning process that improves the effluent quality of water before it is reused, recycled or discharged to the environment. In this process, the remaining inorganic compounds and substances, bacterium, viruses, and parasites are removed to make water ideal for reuse.

Application Insights

The municipal application led the market and accounted for 65.8% of the global revenue share in 2021. Increasing urban population, rising investment, and favorable government policies promoting infrastructure development are projected to foresee tremendous demand for wastewater treatment systems in municipal sectors of developing markets including Turkey, China, India, Thailand, and Bangladesh.

Furthermore, the implementation of National Infrastructure Program is expected to play an important role in increasing the penetration of water treatment facilities on a domestic level, which is expected to promote the demand for membrane separation and disinfection equipment in the forecast period.

The industrial application segment is likely to expand at a CAGR of 4.4% in the forecast periodRapid urbanization, technological developments, and increasing number of production units are resulting in high demand for fresh and processed water. These factors are, in turn, projected to promote the growth of water and wastewater treatment equipment market in the forecast period.

Global water and wastewater treatment equipment market share, by application, 2021 (%)

Increasing spending on mining operations in Chile, Peru, and Mexico as a result of government support for investments in this sector to companies including BHP Billiton, Vale, and Rio Tinto is expected to increase the water & wastewater treatment equipment market size in the forecast period.

The Chinese companies are expected to invest heavily in water and wastewater treatment equipment along with management services in the coming years. In Jan 2021, the Suez Group signed contracts with China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) worth USD 317 million.
