Market Outlook

The global packaged wastewater treatment market attained USD 15.9 billion in 2018. The market is expected to see a robust growth in the forecast period of 2019-2024, growing at a CAGR of 10.4%. In 2024, it is projected to reach a value of USD 28.7 billion.

While globally, more than 80% of the wastewater is released into the environment without undergoing adequate treatment, this trend is expected to change with the growing scarcity of water resources. Almost 70% of the industrial and municipal wastewater generated in Europe undergoes treatment. In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions, on the other hand, the figure stands at 51%. The city of Aqaba in Jordon is the only city in the world where 90% of the wastewater produced is collected and treated. This is done to meet the increasing demand for water due to the burgeoning tourism industry in the city. The increasing investments into the treatment of wastewater by the countries are aiding the growth of the packaged wastewater treatment market. North America is a leading market for decentralised wastewater treatment. The region will also witness a healthy growth at a CAGR of 7.9% in the forecasted period of 2019-2024.

The packaged wastewater treatment market is also being driven by the rising need for a cost-effective and low maintenance alternative to centralised wastewater treatment. The rapid urbanisation combined with the growth of the industrial and commercial sectors has proved centralised treatment facilities insufficient in managing the increased supply of treated wastewater along with treating the larger quantities of wastewater being produced. Moreover, many centralised plants require expensive upgrades and are in landlocked areas. Thus, industries, commercial undertakings, and communities are increasingly investing in packaged or decentralised treatment solutions to meet the capacity requirements as well as adhere to new regulations pertaining to the disposal of wastewater.

Properties and Applications

Packaged wastewater treatment are decentralised wastewater treatment solutions used to treat wastewater in small communities or industries or even on individual properties. They find their application in industrial and municipal segments. Based on the types, they can be segmented into:

  • Extended Aeration 
  • Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR)
  • Reverse Osmosis (RO)
  • Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)
  • Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR)
  • Others

The report looks into the regional markets like North America, LATAM, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. It also analyses the regional price trends of the market for the historical (2014-2018) and forecasted (2019-2024) periods.

Market Analysis

The global packaged wastewater treatment market is being driven by the increasing need to treat wastewater to meet the current water demand. The growing population is also aiding the market growth. The world population stands at more than 7.71 billion people. Even though the population has been growing at slower pace, the increasing number of people combined with a lower mortality rate is expected to put stress on the available amount of water resources. Thus, with people seeking alternative water resources, the packaged wastewater treatment industry is finding further impetus for their growth in the forecast period. Currently, the Asia Pacific with the two most populous countries, China and India, is the fastest growing market for the industry.

Membrane-based wastewater treatment processes are most widely accepted. Membrane bioreactor (MBR) is finding extensive use, especially for industrial and municipal uses. It uses a combination of the membrane process, and the biological wastewater treatment process, along with the activated sludge process. The ongoing development in the membrane bioreactor technology is furthering the industry growth.

The growing acceptance of the packaged wastewater treatment solutions is due to their numerous advantages over centralised treatment plants. The decentralised treatment technology requires lower maintenance and are easier to install. They are also more energy efficient than centralised systems. They save on costs as they do not have extensive infrastructural need and save 25% on capital expenditures and 40% on operational expenditures for new installation and upgrades. With multiple decentralised wastewater treatment plants set up, they help mitigate the losses from manmade or natural disasters.

Competitive Landscape
