Impact of COVID-19 on the Water and Wastewater Treatment Technologies Market
The COVID-19 pandemic severely affected numerous businesses across the globe. Several government bodies imposed nationwide lockdowns to curb the spread of the disease, impacting many manufacturing and service industries, including the water and wastewater treatment technologies market.
The pandemic slowed down investments for installing new water and wastewater treatment plants in many micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises/businesses worldwide due to the decline in revenues and outcomes, resulting in decreased industrial demand in many large sectors using water downscaled or reduced activities. Due to lockdowns and travel restrictions, the decline in demand from large industrial and commercial users significantly reduced water utility revenues.
Based on type, the water and wastewater treatment technologies market is segmented into membrane separation & filtration, sludge management technology, activated sludge, activated carbon technology, clarification, chlorination, industrial demineralization, membrane bioreactor (MBR), UV & ozone, dissolved air flotation, electrochemical scale treatment systems, electrochemical water treatment technology, and other treatment technologies. The membrane separation & filtration technology segment is further segmented into reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, ultrafiltration (UF) membranes, microfiltration (MF) membranes, nanofiltration (NF) membranes, and other filtration technologies. In 2022, the membrane separation & filtration segment is expected to account for the largest share of the water and wastewater treatment technologies market. The growth of this segment is attributed to the growing emphasis on reducing the usage of chemicals in water treatment, rising demand for low energy-consuming water treatment processes, low installation, energy costs, and easy accessibility.
Based on application, the water and wastewater treatment technologies market is segmented into municipal, residential, and industrial. The Industrial application segment is further segmented into food & beverages, pharmaceuticals & chemicals, power generation, pulp & paper, oil & gas, mining, petrochemical, electronics & semiconductors, and other industrial applications. In 2022, the municipal segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the water and wastewater treatment technologies market. The growth of this segment is attributed to the rising scarcity of potable water, coupled with the growing population and increasing clean water demand.
Based on geography, in 2022, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to account for the largest share of the water and wastewater treatment technologies market. The large share of this market is attributed to rapid growth in population and urbanization, increased environmental deterioration, increased demand for water treatment technologies to provide clean and potable water, and the increasing number of investments in water infrastructure by public sector organizations in the region.
