July 20, 2011

Additional Reports


Wellesley, Mass. – In a recent release, WATER AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES: GLOBAL MARKETS (ENV008B) from BCC Research (, the value of water and wastewater treatment (WWT) products in 40 top national markets is estimated to be $56.9 billion in 2011. That value is projected to reach $93.2 billion in 2016, after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.4%.

The WWT products market can be broken down into four segments – delivery equipment, process equipment, treatment chemicals, and instrumentation.

In 2011, the value of the delivery equipment segment was $20 billion, and in 2016 that value is expected to reach nearly $34.4 billion, yielding a CAGR of 11.4%.

The process equipment segment was valued at $17.6 billion in 2011, and in 2016 should reach a value of nearly $28.3 billion, a CAGR of 10%.

The segment made up of treatment chemicals, valued at $12.1 billion in 2011, should be worth nearly $19 billion in 2016, a CAGR of 9.4%

The instrumentation segment, valued at $7.2 billion in 2011, should be worth $11.6 billion in 2016, a CAGR of 10.1%.

The technical solutions for providing water in dry spells and assuring drinking waters remain uncontaminated from sewage have changed over the years, but surprisingly less so than most people realize. Today’s WWT industry is vast, diversified, and growing, yet as simple or complex or as localized or internationalized as a water delivery or sanitary network may be, it remains a collection of the same basic components and a small number of chemical compounds.

In this report, BCC Research describes water quality and water technology issues common to WWT plans of all types, then forecasts the 2011-2016 demand for 15 essential products in the 40 national markets that offer the most robust business prospects.

The study will be of interest to those who require a greater deal of operational-level detail about the business opportunities in the WWT industry, senior executives within industries that manufacture WWT products, officers in regulatory agencies and industry trade associations, international investors, attorneys, and other professional stakeholders.
