Indian Urban Wastewater Treatment, Forecast to 2020

Indian Urban Wastewater Treatment, Forecast to 2020

The growing acceptance of recycled wastewater in the industrial and non-potable applications is expected to drive the demand for wastewater recycling and reuse systems in the municipal segment.
The study aims to analyse and forecast the Indian urban wastewater market outlook and technology trends up to 2020.

Research Scope:
• Study Period – 2014-2020
• Technology
o Pre-treatment - Medium and Fine Screening, Grit Removal, Grinders, Oil and Grease Removal
o Primary Treatment - Clarification, Settling Tanks, Aeration Tanks, Sedimentation Tanks, Anaerobic Treatment
o Secondary Treatment - ASP, Submerged Media Aerobic Bio-Filtration, Moving Bed Biological Reactor (MBBR), Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR), Membrane Biological Reactor (MBR), Trickling Filters, Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB), Waste Stabilisation Ponds (WSP)
o Tertiary Treatment - Microscreens, Disinfection
o Sludge Management - Sludge Thickening, Sludge Anaerobic Digestion / Stabilisation, Dewatering / Solar Drying
o Final By-product Disposal - Landfilling, Biogas for Electrical Energy Production

Urban wastewater treatment is a major challenge in India as infrastructural development and regulations have not kept pace with population growth and urbanization. Domestic sewerage treatment in urban areas is very limited, with only 31% of wastewater generated being treated in twenty three metropolitan cities.

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has identified highly polluted stretches of rivers in and around large urban areas. There is therefore lot of emphasis on wastewater recycling and reuse for applications such as process water, landscaping, toilet flushing, etc.
This research service provides an analysis of wastewater technology, status of sewage treatment plants, revenue forecasts, and competitive landscape. The base year for the study is 2016 and 2017 - 2020 is the forecast period. A growing number of municipal corporations are starting to look at wastewater recycling as a solution to narrow the widening water demand and supply gap. The study also provides key market breakdown, trends, business models, evaluation of wastewater treatment technologies, and best practice use of technology in the Indian market.

Key Questions This Study will Answer:
1. What are the key market trends that will define the growth of wastewater treatment systems in urban areas?
2. What is the most preferred technology for urban wastewater treatment and why?
3. What are the successful business models adopted by service providers?
4. What are the regional initiatives to tackle urban wastewater treatment? Which are the most attractive regions for growth?
5. What are the key market growth opportunities? What are the key strategic imperatives for growth?
