The global packaged wastewater treatment market reached a value of US$ 17.1 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Packaged wastewater treatment (PWWT) refers to the process of treating sewage or industrial wastewater using a pre-engineered and self-contained facility. It involves the removal of coarse solids and grit using large filtering screens, followed by skimming of organic and inorganic sediments found in oil, grease and lighter solids. In the following steps, secondary or biological sludge is formed by mixing the deposits, which are separated from the water to remove any remaining micro-organisms. This treated wastewater is then chemically or physically disinfected through lagoons and microfiltration and is further discharged into the environment (waterbodies or plains) or reused for industrial processes.
The market is primarily being driven by rapid industrialization, which has led to a growing demand for cost-effective and low maintenance decentralized wastewater treatment plants. Industries, such as chemical, pharmaceutical, oil and gas and food and beverage extensively utilize PWWT systems for processing and re-using large water volumes in their industrial processes and minimizing the unwanted liquid discharge into the environment. Furthermore, various technological advancements in the wastewater treatment sector, such as the development of Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) and logistic systems for efficient waste management, are also contributing to the market growth. The increasing levels of water pollution and scarcity of clean water across the globe are also acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Increasing government investments in water treatment facilities and the widespread adoption of PWWT in power plants to minimize water wastage are some of the other factors that are projected to drive the market further.
