Rainwater Harvesting Market By Harvesting Method (Surface-based Harvesting and Roof-based Harvesting), By End-user (Residential, Commercial and Industrial) - Growth, Future Prospects, and Competitive Landscape, 2018-2026

Growing awareness towards water conservation and global warming has certainly stimulated the need for rainwater harvesting systems across different end-users. Governments across several nations and environmental agencies are making sincere efforts to promote eco-friendly techniques such as rainwater harvesting for residential, commercial, and industrial end-users. As a result, the global rainwater harvesting market was valued at US$ 1.35 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach US$ 2.24 billion by 2026. The market is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.9% throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Market Synopsis

Roof-based Rainwater Harvesting Will Proliferate in the Coming Years

Rainwater harvesting is a simple process of harvesting and collecting rainwater during the rainy season and then using the water year-round. The technique is broadly classified into surface-based harvesting and roof-based harvesting. Both techniques harvest rainwater, but surface-based harvesting involves the collection of excess water flowing through the earth with the help of channels and gutters in surface or underground tanks. However, this method involves collecting water with impurities from the surface, which needs to be purified before use.

The techniques are generally incorporated into commercial and industrial infrastructure along with the roof-based system. Roof-based systems are extensively incorporated by all residential, commercial, and industrial end-users. Once the water is collected, this method is simple and requires little after-treatment. Consequently, roof-based rainwater harvesting dominates the overall market and is expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period.

Industrial and Commercial End-Users Hold the Upper Hand Over Residential

Industrial and commercial end-users are locking horns with each other for the majority of the market share in the overall rainwater harvesting market. Several incentive programs and construction mandates for commercial and industrial infrastructure incorporating rainwater harvesting systems have been introduced by governments and environmental organizations around the world.

This has significantly stimulated the demand for rainwater harvesting systems for commercial as well as industrial end-users. Consequently, the two end-users compete with each other for the majority of the market share. Residential end-users are gradually making their mark on the overall market. Rainwater harvesting for residential end-users is increasing as people become more concerned about the environment and water scarcity.

Asia Pacific is about to challenge North America for market share.

At present, North America has emerged as the leader in the global rainwater harvesting market. Realizing the seriousness of water scarcity, the U.S. and Canada have mandated that different end-users, including commercial buildings, schools, malls, hospitals, and industrial buildings, equip themselves with rainwater harvesting. Canada is also drawing up guidelines to harvest water from snow during the winter and store it for other seasons.

The region is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. However, Asia Pacific is making a rapid evolution in terms of rainwater harvesting installations. Several countries in this region are facing water scarcity, and rainwater harvesting is the only way for them to overcome such issues. Consequently, Asia-Pacific is expected to claim a major market share in the coming years.
