Freedonia Study: World Water Disinfection Products (2992)

The Freedonia Group, an international business research company, released a statement late last month predicting an increase of 5.5 per cent in worldwide demand for water disinfection products by 2016.

Concern over disinfection byproducts and the rising standards for water quality and wastewater treatment were two such changes. In particular, the pressure to treat water for reuse, and the resupply of water sources, necessitates newer and more sophisticated water treatment systems than are available in much of the world.

Heightened security and anti-terrorism measures have led to increased regulatory costs.

These and other trends are presented in World Water Disinfection Products, a new study from The Freedonia Group, Inc., a Cleveland-based industry market research firm.
