With Multiple Applications, Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Equipment Market Advances at 16.2% CAGR

January 18, 2019

WELLESLEY, Mass., Jan. 18, 2019 – Due to greater regulatory acceptance, superior efficacy, support for reusability and chlorine-free operations, the global market for UV disinfection equipment is progressing, according to the report “Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Equipment: Major Applications and Global Markets.

The global market for UV disinfection equipment was valued at nearly $2.1 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $4.4 billion by 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.2% during the forecast period, according to BCC Research.

Prominent players in the industry include: Air Oasis, American Air & Water, Inc., Clean Water Systems International, Field Controls, Germitec, LIT UV Technology, Pentair Aquatic Ecosystems and Royal Phillips Electronics (RYLPF), among others.

Research Highlights:

  • The effectiveness of UV treatment and the simplicity of handling dose-dispensing devices have steadily increased the popularity of UV technology in air treatment, particularly in hospitals.
  • Wastewater continues to be the fastest-growing segment for UV disinfection as mature market, such as North America and Western Europe, have a strong interest in wastewater processing systems.
  • UV technology offers cost-effective disinfection to the highest quality standards without the use of chemical additives for process water. In these end uses, UV also can enable the reuse of process water within the manufacturing plant. The ability to reclaim used water is becoming increasingly important in the face of global climate change and water shortages.

“Most public, and many private, pool and spa facilities are governed by strict water disinfection standards and practices specified by public health regulators,” said Shalini Ramamurthy, the report’s author. “However, chlorine is the predominantly used disinfectant. Growing public awareness of chlorine’s negative effects and its byproducts, THMs and chloramines, are leading to increased use of UV disinfection.”

Demand for Bottled Water Expanding Market Growth

One major driver for UV purification in the food and beverage industry is the growing acceptance of bottled water. Rapid urbanization represents a formidable challenge for potable water infrastructures, especially in developing regions. As a result, users increasingly rely on branded and packaged drinking water.
