Global Water treatment systems Market Research (Future Insights)

The water treatment systems market size is projected to reach approximately USD 34.03 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 6.50% from 2022 to 2030. Demand for potable water has increased with a rising population and pollution levels. This is a major driving factor for the water treatment systems market, as an increasing population implies more drinking water, which must be treated before being packaged in bottles for public consumption. Increasing health awareness in most regions promises to escalate the overall market demand during the forecasted period. Stringent government regulations related to minimizing water contamination help the market to grow for the projected period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The effects of COVID-19 on both the world population and economy were profound. The COVID-19 disaster is expected to cause a significant economic fall. The epidemic caused several manufacturing plants and supply chain networks worldwide to shut down completely. Due to market supply problems brought on by the epidemic, operational reliability became even more crucial. Worldwide demand for water treatment systems has decreased due to a decline in large industrial and commercial activity demand. However, the market is rebounding due to improved industrial performance ly and rising automation at water treatment facilities in many nations.

Water treatment systems Market Dynamics

The rise in demand for clean water for industrial purposes and drinking across the globe is one of the major factors driving the water treatment systems market growth. The surge in government initiatives for the supply of clean and purified water and the rise in the rate of water pollution contributed by industrialization, coupled with the unregulated disposal of chemical materials and debris from construction activities, accelerate the market expansion. Water treatment is used in industrial processes where water hardness, pH, and TDS contents to optimal levels are required. A rise in concerns regarding the incidences of water-borne diseases further influences the market.

Market Drivers

  • The emergence of smart water treatment systems

The Internet of Things has allowed smart water purification systems to emerge as a unique technological trend in the water purification industry. These smart purifiers are strategically developed to substitute traditional reverse osmosis and ultraviolet water purification systems. They are compact and suitable for usage with smartphones. Water contamination happens when impurities are directly or indirectly released into the water without adequate treatment to extract harmful contaminants. The most significant water contaminants initiated by human activities are microbial pathogens, heavy metals, nutrients, persistent organic matter, pesticides, suspended sediments, and oxygen-consuming substances.

Nanotechnology advancements and a concentration of microorganisms in bio-microelectronic devices

Rising need for a constant supply of water for industrial applications

Market Restraints:

  • High production and maintenance cost of filters

Reverse osmosis filters and ultra-violet filters are costly. A technically skilled workforce is needed to achieve the optimal design and meet standard regulations, increasing filters' production costs. The maintenance cost of point-of-use water treatment systems depends upon filters and the technology required.

Market Opportunities:

Increasing awareness about water-borne diseases

Water-borne diseases are caused owing to infections by pathogens such as bacteria, protozoa, viruses, parasitic worms, algae, and other metal contaminants. The consumption of metal-contaminated water leads to typhoid, diarrhea, malaria, chlorella, campylobacteriosis, lead poisoning, and others. These diseases spread while drinking, washing, showering, or eating food infected by raw and untreated water. Furthermore, some Asia-Pacific countries, such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal, face huge problems connected to clean water. Being developing and underdeveloped, these economies lack the financial stability to provide clean drinking water.

Scarcity of clean water in developing countries

Segment Overview

By Technology Insights

Based on technology, the water treatment systems market segmentation is filtration, reverse osmosis, water softener, distillation, sedimentation, and others. The water treatment systems market growth was prominently high under the reverse osmosis category in 2021. Numerous dissolved or suspended bacterial and amoebic particles can be removed from water using reverse osmosis. Filtration methods used in reverse osmosis systems include sediment and carbon. Carbon filters in the RO system eliminate chlorine, bad taste, and odors, while sediment filters eliminate dirt and debris.

Additionally, contributing significantly to sales share in 2021 was the category for distillation systems. Because distillation devices only generate a limited volume of treated water, they are provided as point-of-use units at the faucet. Point-of-use distillation systems eliminate certain organic impurities, purify water, and reduce the number of harmful metals. Chlorine dioxide, chlorination, ozone, UV radiation, and chloramines are all used in disinfection systems. UV water disinfection technology emits ultraviolet radiation with a wavelength of 253.7 nanometers to kill bacteria, viruses, algae, and molds.

By Application Insights

The water treatment systems market segmentation, based on application, is commercial, industrial, and infrastructure. In 2021 the infrastructure category had a prominent market share, owing to increasing health consciousness among young populations can be linked to the growing adoption of water purification systems. However, the commercial was the fastest growing category due to growing water treatment needs in malls, offices, commercial spaces, and other institutions with high-volume consumption of high-quality water. Besides, the industrial category is anticipated to grow at a significant rate. According to the water treatment systems report, the emphasis on delivering high-quality water for home and industrial applications is developing due to the increased demand for freshwater from end-use industries. Consequently, the water treatment system market is anticipated to experience rapid expansion in the years to come. Water is one of the most important utilities in the industrial, construction, and mining industries. Businesses need large amounts of water for cleaning, processing, and other purposes.
