Global Market for Municipal Water Treatment Technologies to Reach $3.2 Billion in 2019; Advanced Disinfection Systems Segment Growing at a CAGR of 7.5%

October 24, 2014

Wellesley, Mass., October 24, 2014 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report, ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR MUNICIPAL WATER TREATMENT, the U.S. market for advanced municipal water treatment technologies is expected to reach over $3.2 billion in 2019 and register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% for the five-year period of 2014 to 2019. The advanced disinfection systems segment is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 7.5%.

The U.S. market for advanced drinking water technologies is made up of membrane filtration, ozone disinfection, UV irradiation, and novel oxidation processes. It is estimated to reach nearly $2.3 billion in 2014 and is expected to progress at a CAGR of 7.4% through 2019.

The discovery that chlorine can create harmful byproducts in the presence of organics in surface water feeds has led to a range of replacement disinfectants including ozone, UV, and some novel oxidants. The market value of these advanced disinfection systems is estimated at $555 million for 2014 and is advancing at a CAGR of 7.5%. The acceptance of ozone and UV disinfection is gathering momentum as both technologies are now viewed as proven, cost effective, green technologies with distinct advantages.

“Competition between chlorine-based disinfectants and ozone or UV technologies will continue for some time, as chlorine gas is minimized or phased out,” says BCC Research analyst Susan Hanft. “Among disinfection alternatives, competition between ozone and UV treatment is and will continue to be especially intense.”

 ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR MUNICIPAL WATER TREATMENT provides an in-depth analysis of the market for advanced municipal drinking water treatment. Technical and market drivers are considered in evaluating the current value of the technologies and in forecasting growth and trends over the next five years.
