Global Municipal Water Treatment Advanced Technology Markets 2021: Market to Surpass $20 Billion by 2026

·5-min read

Dublin, Sept. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Advanced Technologies for Municipal Water Treatment 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global market for advanced municipal water treatment technologies is estimated to grow from $13.7 billion in 2021 to reach $20.5 billion by 2026, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.4% during the forecast period of 2021-2026.

The North American market for advanced municipal water treatment technologies is estimated to grow from $4.6 billion in 2021 to reach $7.0 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period of 2021-2026.

The Asia-Pacific market for advanced municipal water treatment technologies is estimated to grow from $4.9 billion in 2021 to reach $7.6 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period of 2021-2026.

Report Scope

This report examines the market for four categories of advanced municipal water treatment: filtration technology, ultraviolet irradiation, ozone disinfection, and some novel advanced oxidation processes (chlorination). Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value.

The report will provide a detailed analysis of key trends and opportunities that will aid in the growth of the market. It will also analyze the major challenges faced by the municipal water treatment industry. Technological trends, industry structure, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles, and competitive technologies are also included in the study.

For the membrane technologies used in desalination, a growing water shortage in many areas is also a major factor in the industry's future. The growing global water shortage is one of the most serious crises of the twenty-first century. While water supply has always been a critical issue in the arid Middle East, U.S. water shortages are a more recent and frightening prospect. Reverse osmosis (RO) desalination of brackish (mixed salt and fresh) water and seawater can bring increased potable supplies at a surprisingly low cost. Electrodialysis reversal (EDR) and nanofiltration (NF) also have a niche in converting brackish water to fresh.

As an alternative to imposing a physical barrier to pathogens, potable water also can be rid of the most dangerous disease microbes through disinfection; this is most commonly accomplished by adding chlorine. The discovery that chlorine can create harmful by-products in the presence of organics in surface water feeds has led to a range of replacement disinfectants including ozone, UV, and some novel oxidants.

The report will also have a separate section highlighting the impact of COVID-19 on advanced technologies for the municipal water treatment market, particularly in the U.S. The section will include the impact of COVID-19 on demand and supply of municipal water treatment technologies, price impact, and various strategic decisions taken by the government to boost the market.

Some of the novel treatment technologies included in the report are chloramines, chlorine dioxide, on-site sodium hypochlorite, and mixed oxidants. Market size and estimations for these novel treatment technologies are provided only for the U.S. market, not for the global market.
