The wastewater treatment services market is projected to reach USD 71.6 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.2 % from USD 53.0 billion in 2021. Growing population, expanding manufacturing industry, urbanization, and regulatory requirements are the major drivers of the wastewater treatment services market. Initiatives by manufacturing industries and state bodies for low waste generation and growing awareness about new water treatment technologies are some of the factors which are likely to boost the wastewater treatment services market.

“Increasing environmental regulations”
Nations have enforced strict norms against polluting the naturally occurring water bodies and illegal discharge of wastewater. In countries such as China, which were severely impacted by air pollution, special laws have been implemented to protect it from the harmful impact of wastewater discharge. At the same time, developed nations such as the US have stringent laws for drinking water, potable water, and wastewater, indicating the fact that wastewater treatment is strictly dealt with. With such stringency maintained at the international level, it is evident that the nations have laid down strict regulations to curb global warming and protect biodiversity. Thus, improper discharge of wastewater effluents is dealt with the utmost strictness, and this can render factories noncompliant.

“Operation & process control is estimated to be the largest service type in wastewater treatment services market between 2021 and 2026.”
The amount of wastewater generated from industries largely depends on their operations & processes. Optimizing these processes hugely impacts the quality and quantity of the wastewater generated, which, in turn, is expected to impact the kind of treatment procedure associated with it. Thus, operation & process control forms a key component of the service type segment. Operations & process control services are mainly provided for the facility operation improvement and control of wastewater treatment plants. The major municipal and industrial customers outsource such services to dedicated wastewater treatment service providers. These types of services include, but are not limited to, laboratory testing, facility troubleshooting, routine maintenance, parameters monitoring, statistical process control, and report generation.
