Demand for Ultra Pure Process Water and Regulations Enable Growth in the European Industrial Water and Wastewater Treatment Equipment Markets
The need for ultra pure process water in the industrial sector is a prominent driver for the industrial water treatment equipment market. Demand from end user industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper, semiconductors, and various other chemical manufacturers has water treatment equipment manufacturers striving to satisfy client requirements. Environment protection legislations have delivered fresh impetus to the maturing wastewater treatment equipment segment. “The implementation of the IPPC Directive in Europe and its pressure on industries to clean up their wastewater has brought about revitalization of the otherwise slowing equipment market,” notes the analyst of this research service. “The requirement of the Directive for industries to demonstrate implementation of best available technique in tackling wastewater discharges has brought about increased interest in the advanced wastewater treatment equipment systems.”
The growth in the end customer market will directly reflect on the industrial water treatment equipment market as Europe uses roughly 54 percent of its available freshwater for industrial purposes. Proliferating opportunities in the large industries segment has led to neglect of the treatment needs of the small and medium enterprises (SME), which requires treatment systems that are tailor-made and modular. The growth of many such SMEs opens new doors for this market. Taking the wide angle view, the industrial water and wastewater treatment equipment market is expected to progress at a steady pace, affording an attractive investment option despite the economic slowdown. Although economic recovery is expected by June 2009, a cautious approach is recommended.
Innovation Holds the Key to Market Penetration in this Mature Market
“The biggest challenge for the industrial water and wastewater treatment equipment market is the fast evolving treatment needs within industry, which demands greater degree of product innovation,” explains the analyst. “The wastewater treatment equipment market faces an even greater challenge where the implementation of the IPPC Directive requires industries to install systems that qualify under the definition of Best Available Technology (BAT).” Innovation is critical for long-term development of the water treatment equipment market, while the wastewater treatment equipment market is challenged by the sluggish implementation of laws and regulations. Suppliers in the water treatment equipment segment are successfully circumventing these impediments by offering customized membrane separation systems and fulfilling specific treatment needs. The laid-back attitude toward the implementation of regulations and market saturation are other factors reining in market progression.
Trends indicate that non-chemical methods of treatment of industrial and wastewater is gaining importance in the market. Growing concerns over the use of chemicals in the treatment of process water as well as the difficulty in managing chemical sludge generated in a chemical wastewater treatment method will boost the demand for non-chemical treatment methods. Techniques or equipment types that would benefit from the gravitation toward non-chemical modes are niche segments such as UV and ozonation in water treatment, and advanced biological treatment systems such as membrane bio-reactors in wastewater.
