Water Treatment Equipment Market By Equipment Type (Conventional Filter, Membrane Equipment, Disinfection Equipment, Deionization Equipment, Distillation Equipment), By End-User (Municipal, Industrial Manufacturing, Commercial & Residential, Power Generation, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The human race is facing a monstrous issue of water scarcity, and water treatment plants are one of the few ways out of this calamity humans have brought on themselves. Setting up water treatment plants allows some amount of wastewater to be used again for essential and lifesaving applications. Nations worldwide have recognized the power of the water treatment process, and multiple water treatment plants are being installed globally to mitigate the growing impact of water scarcity and global warming. As a result of such realizations, the global water treatment equipment market was valued at US$ 51.05 billion in 2017. Based on the detailed analysis and consideration of various influencing factors, the market is expected to continue its ascent to reach US$ 86.98 Bn in 2026, accelerating at a 6.1% growth rate from 2018 to 2026.

Market Synopsis

Membrane Equipment Trying to Dethrone Conventional Filter Equipment from its Pinnacle Position

In 2017, conventional filtration equipment claimed the largest share of the global water treatment market, as this equipment is extensively used across several end-use applications and especially in industrial manufacturing. Stringent government regulation and growing pressure from environmental organizations encouraged the industrial manufacturing and processing sectors to incorporate conventional filter equipment for treating water. However, membrane treatment processes such as reverse osmosis, microfiltration, and ultrafiltration are expected to gain momentum over conventional filter equipment in the coming years. Desalination of seawater for drinking and municipal end-users is one of the biggest drivers for membrane equipment to grow as the fastest-growing segment in the coming years.

In terms of market value, Industrial Manufacturing is by far the best among other water treatment equipment end-users.

Industrial manufacturers and end-users across several nations have to abide by stringent regulations for treating water before discarding it. Consequently, industrial manufacturing is the top consumer of water treatment equipment, a segment projected to reach new heights with rapid industrialization. Municipal end-users also play a vital role in the overall water treatment equipment market. Municipal organizations use water treatment equipment for treating waste water and use that water for various other applications lying under their jurisdiction. Power generation is another major segment projected to witness considerable growth with the rapid adoption of renewable energy sources in the coming years.

In the race for the overall water treatment equipment market, North America serves as a model for other regions.

With more than 25% of the global market share, North America leads the overall water treatment equipment market. North American countries have taken a very positive approach to utilize precious water resources. The countries are witnessing growing awareness towards water treatment and are observing regulations religiously. However, Asia-Pacific is all set to steal the show owing to its rapidly developing urban economies and industrial sectors across different countries. These countries are also framing their regulations for water safety and treatment and would represent the most attractive geographical segment for the water treatment equipment market in the coming years.
