SCOPE OF REPORT
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.
During the past 15 years, Susan Hanft has authored more than 30 market research reports for BCC Research in the fields of membrane technology, water and wastewater treatment, and separations used in food and beverage manufacture, medicine, and biotechnology.
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.
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.
The U.S. market for advanced drinking water technologies is estimated at $1.3 billion in 2003 and is expected to grow at an average annual rate (AAGR) of 12.3% to $2.4 billion in 2008.
Together, the five membrane treatments are valued at $983 billion in 2003, with a predicted AAGR of 14% through 2008.
The market for ozone treatment is estimated at $196 million and is expected to rise at an AAGR of 7.1% during the next five years.
The small UV disinfection market will rise the fastest over the period, while emerging novel methods will rise at a 6.5% AAGR.
Government regulation of drinking water contaminants is the most important element in forecasting growth.
