Advanced Technologies for Municipal Water Treatment

Apr 2011| MST036C| BCC Publishing

Report Highlights

Combined, the U.S. market for advanced drinking water technologies, made up of membrane filtration, ozone disinfection, UV irradiation, and novel oxidation processes is estimated at nearly $1.9 billion in 2011 and is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2% through 2016.


This report examines the market for four categories of advanced municipal water treatment: membrane filtration, ultraviolet irradiation, ozone disinfection, and some novel advanced oxidation processes.  Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value.  Industry structure, technological trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles, and competitive technologies are included in the study.

The report is primarily a study of the U.S. market, but due to the international presence of some industry participants, global activities are included when appropriate.

Report Highlights

  • The U.S. market for the advanced drinking water technologies: membrane filtration, ozone disinfection, UV irradiation and novel oxidation processes is estimated at about $1.3 billion in 2006, and is growing at a combined average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 10.7%. In 2011 the market will grow to more than $2.1 billion.
  • In the 1990s, waterborne disease outbreaks in the U.S. and Canada alerted utilities to the inefficiency of standard treatment processes. Plant operators discovered that these shortfalls could be addressed, however, by implementing a physical barrier to the microbes with the low-pressure membrane methods microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF). Together, the five membrane treatments for municipal drinking water are valued at $1 billion in 2006, with a predicted combined growth rate of 10.3%.
  • UV disinfection, a market valued at $29.2 million, should experience considerable growth in the forecast period. A 38.6% AAGR is predicted to 2011 at which time the market should be worth more than $149 million.
