Water and Wastewater Treatment Market Size Worth USD 670.7 Billion By 2025 | CAGR: 3.8%

Published Date : 26 / 10 / 18  | Report Format: PDF

The global water and wastewater treatment market is expected to grow at growth rate of 3.8% to reach USD 670.7 billion by 2025.

Soaring demand for high-quality water from industrial and residential sectors is expected to drive the growth of water and wastewater treatment market. This is justified by the recent facts on public spending on water resources and utilities. As per the Safe Drinking Water Foundation, public spending on infrastructure including the water resources, transportation and utilities such as sewage and wastewater treatment has increased by 44% between 2003 and 2014, whereas the total government spending on maintenance of utilities and capital operations increased by 1-2% since 1990.

Increasing industrialization is also contributing to the growing demand for water treatment facilities. For example, food and beverage industry are growing significantly across the globe. The food and beverage manufacturers utilize high volumes of water for sanitization purposes which are further discarded. The discharged water is liable to meet the stringent regulations of government, thus increasing the need for wastewater treatment.

Furthermore, evolving technologies have been gaining increasing proliferation thereby resulting in the increasing practice of reusing water which has, in turn, contributed to the industry growth. For instance, in 2010, Aquatech International LLC supplied Wastewater Ultrafiltration 500 GPM; Potable Ultrafiltration 300 GPM; Reverse Osmosis 60 GPM; and Forced Circulation Crystallizer; which led to Zero Liquid Discharge to the Colusa Generating Station plant in the U.S. Such factors would, in turn, support the market growth to great extent. Wastewater treatment technologies help reduce environmental impacts in the treated water, however overall it creates life cycle impacts mainly through energy consumption or greenhouse gas emission, pulling back the industry growth to some level. Based on our analysis, we analyzed that at present, the market is at its nascent stage with enormous potential to grow. There is a great necessity to preserve and recycle the wastewater worldwide which indicates great market prospects ahead.
