Water Treatment Equipment

As Quoted In Environmental Leader

Gains will be supported by rising concerns about contaminants, chemicals, and byproducts in supply water and wastewater, and by more stringent manufacturing requirements in process water.

US demand to rise 5.9% annually through 2017

Demand for water treatment equipment in the US is forecast to grow 5.9 percent per year to $13.0 billion in 2017. Gains will be supported by increasing concerns about the health risks and environmental impacts of biological contaminants, chemicals, and disinfection byproducts in supply water and wastewater, and by more stringent manufacturing requirements in process water. Resource extraction and the commercial and residential markets are expected to be among the fastest growing markets for water treatment equipment, while the larger municipal and manufacturing markets are projected to expand at healthy rates.

Resource extraction market to show fastest gains

The resource extraction market is expected to show the most rapid gains among the major markets, as the treatment requirements for produced water in oil and natural gas extraction continue to rise, and as water recycling and reuse increase to satisfy the needs of expanded hydraulic fracturing activities. An expected rebound in mining output, particularly for minerals, will also contribute to an increased need for water treatment equipment. Rising demand will particularly benefit conventional filtration systems, which are the most commonly used type of equipment in the resource extraction market.

The commercial and residential markets for water treatment equipment are expected to continue to recover from the declines seen during the 2007-2009 economic recession, with demand boosted by greater consumer interest in drinking water quality, increased consumer confidence, and expanded commercial and residential construction activities. Point-of-entry membrane filtration, disinfection, and deionization equipment is expected to benefit the most from rising demand.

The municipal market for water treatment equipment is expected to continue to experience healthy growth through 2017. Demand for membrane systems and disinfection equipment in the municipal market will benefit from new EPA regulations that stipulate maximum allowable limits for disinfection byproducts, volatile organic compounds, perchlorates, and other potentially hazardous contaminants.

The need for very high quality process water in a number of applications will support greater demand for technologies such as reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and disinfection equipment. Water treatment equipment demand in manufacturing markets will also benefit from the recycling of wastewater for reuse. While quite small in 2012, ballast water treatment is expected to be the fastest growing market segment overall.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $9.8 billion US market for water treatment equipment. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., conventional filtration, membrane equipment, disinfection equipment), market (e.g., municipal, manufacturing, commercial and residential, resource extraction, power generation), and application (supply water, wastewater, process water, ultrapurification, desalination).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 27 industry players such as General Electric, Siemens, and Pall.
