COVID-19 Economic Impact Report: Global Water Treatment Equipment & Chemicals looks at how the expected impact of the pandemic on the current macroeconomic environment compares to other major events since 2000, including the bursting of technology bubble, the SARS outbreak, the 2009 global downturn, and the European financial crisis. It also provides a historical view of global industry sales since 2000, a look at how the industry is being currently impacted, and estimates for global industry sales through 2023.

Water treatment systems considered:

  • Equipment demand includes membrane equipment (microfiltration, reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, and nanofiltration), conventional filtration (sand filtration, cartridge filtration, activated carbon, activated garnet), disinfection equipment (chemical generation, UV, ozone generation, thermal disinfection, ultrasonic disinfection), deionization equipment, distillation equipment, gas generation equipment, aerators, and oil water separators.
  • Chemical demand includes corrosion and scale inhibitors, coagulants and flocculants (metallic salts, polymers, clay-based coagulants and flocculants), biocides (chlorine derivatives, chlorine, bromine derivatives, hydrogen peroxide), pH adjusters, foam control agents, chelating agents, fluoridation chemicals, dewatering acids, odor control agents, and oxygen scavengers.
