Desalination equipment is very expensive for developing and underdeveloped countries. Likewise, the costs of operating and maintaining water treatment systems are also high. For example, treatment systems consume a considerable amount of energy for water treatment and treatment requirements. These problems are highlighted in African countries, which are economically backward and where around 45% of the population does not have access to drinking water. These countries also lack basic infrastructure for water distribution and storage. This could prove to be a hindrance to the growth of the global water and wastewater treatment market.

Opportunities in the Water and Wastewater Treatment Equipment Market

The current energy problems in the world are not only the result of the depletion of conventional energy reserves, but also of their environmental effects resulting from their extraction, processing, associated emissions, waste disposal and recycling. Therefore, water treatment equipment is also subject to the increasing demand for energy efficient water treatment solutions. Membrane water treatment equipment plays an important role in maintaining water and energy related sustainability. Most of these membranes find wide applications in industrial applications. Examples include reverse osmosis desalination, membrane-based water and wastewater treatment (MBR), lithium-ion batteries, and membrane fuel cells. In addition to fighting against water and energy scarcity, membrane solutions meet sustainability parameters related to ecological parameters, land use, flexibility and adaptability. Alternatively, membrane technologies must be improved in terms of cost and accessibility, energy consumption and competition. Therefore, to achieve such advancements, advancements in membrane equipment are needed. These conditions are expected to provide opportunities for membrane technologies and the advancement of membrane equipment to address water and energy sustainability in the future.

Challenges in the Water and Wastewater Treatment Equipment Market

Developed countries mainly face the challenge of aging infrastructure. These countries built water treatment infrastructure decades ago and still use these old systems. Significant investments are needed to reinstall and upgrade these old infrastructures. Developed economies built all the necessary hydraulic infrastructure in the early years. Contrary to this, several emerging economies where many people still do not have adequate access have started to build their water infrastructure. Water and wastewater treatment systems have a lifespan of approximately 70 to 80 years, and in many cases many water and wastewater treatment plants have reached the end of their service life. useful life. In addition, water pipes are not properly maintained in some countries. Therefore, significant investments are needed in many areas to repair and modernize aging water infrastructure. The renovation or reconstruction of the old proposed water plants will add fresh water, however, the installation and modernization of new equipment and systems to replace the old infrastructure is expected to be in small quantities.
