“The industrial wastewater treatment market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.8%, in terms of value, between 2019 and 2024.”
The market size of industrial wastewater treatment is estimated at USD 11.3 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 15.0 billion by 2024. This growth is attributed to stringent regulations concerning the emission and treatment of industrial wastes and depleting freshwater resources. However, the shifting demand of end-use industries toward the advanced and environment-friendly water treatment technologies is hampering the market growth. On the other hand, growing industrialization resulting from population explosion is expected to leverage new growth opportunities for chemical manufacturers in the industrial wastewater market.

“The biocides & disinfectants type to be the largest segment of the industrial wastewater treatment market.”
Based on type, biocides & disinfectants is estimated to be the largest type of industrial wastewater treatment during the forecast period. The demand for biocides and disinfectants is comparatively higher owing to their high requirement in wastewater treatment applications of all the major end-use industries considered in the study. Biocides are directly related to human physiology and have the ability to neutralize diseases causing microbes. Moreover, the increasing environmental regulations have fueled the demand for biocides and disinfectants in the industrial wastewater treatment market.
