The Global Water Disinfection Equipment Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.03% during the forecast period, reaching a total market size of US$9.404 billion in 2027 from US$6.669 billion in 2020.
Water disinfection equipment is used for cleaning water and removing any impurities making it safe and hygienic drinking water. The growing global population, along with increasing urbanization, is the major driver of the water disinfection equipment market. Scarce freshwater resources coupled with a rising population base are forcing governments around the world to build new water treatment facilities and upgrade the existing ones so as to provide clean drinking water to all.
Strict regulations and industry standards to treat wastewater across various industries are other driving factors for the market growth of water disinfection equipment.
The water disinfection market is also being driven due to increasing laws and regulations enforcing clean and safe water for utilization and treating wastewater against redwater-borne diseases. Water disinfection equipment is used by industries due to stringent rules and regulations implemented by the government for releasing wastewater into the river or drainage system, thereby positively impacting market growth. Furthermore, rising pollution levels in developing countries like India and China due to growing industries are affecting the rainfall and purity of natural water resources, which makes making more use of water disinfection equipment for drinking and using clean water.
By type, UV equipment has a significant share in the global water disinfection equipment market
Water disinfection equipment is commonly used to disinfect and treat water as it effectively destroys a significant number of waterborne microorganisms. UV treatment is especially dangerous to chlorine-resistant microorganisms. The demand for UV water disinfection equipment is increasing across the residential sector as the lamp is required to be changed once a year, making it more cost-efficient. Ozone generation equipment is expected to witness significant market growth during the forecast period. The ozone generation equipment market is driven by high utilization by industrial, commercial, and municipal customers due to its being an environmentally-friendly technology and not creating chlorinated disinfection byproducts.
By end-user, the residential segment witnesses decent market growth
The residential segment does make major use of water disinfection equipment. The residential sector requires water disinfection equipment for clean water utilization for cooking, drinking, and washing purposes. The increasing prevalence of water-borne disease is encouraging the use of water disinfection equipment in homes. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), 2 million deaths happen each year due to waterborne diseases like diarrhoea, malaria, schistosomiasis, trachoma, intestinal helminths, hepatitis A, and many more. The lack of a clean water supply at home is further boosting the mass utilization of water disinfection equipment at home. Climate change is also a driving factor for water disinfection equipment as flooding and drought can majorly impact household water and sanitation infrastructure, leading to health risks. The commercial segment is also witnessing a rise in the usage of water disinfection equipment due to growing concerns regarding the health of employees. The commercial segment is driven by more demand for clean water for their employees’ betterment of health.
The industrial segment is expected to witness the most noteworthy market growth in water disinfection equipment during the forecast period. This growth is majorly attributed to the increasing number of industries worldwide. Food and beverage industries need water disinfection equipment for the utilization of clean water in the processing or making of food and beverage products. Heavy industries like the energy and power industries are adopting water disinfection equipment in order to save heavy machinery from rusting and thereby increase its product life. Strict regulations regarding the disposal of wastewater into the environment are further fueling the demand for water disinfection equipment across various industries, thus bolstering market growth.
North America holds a major market share
