Global Commercial UV Water Purifier Market 2017-2021

About Commercial UV Water Purifier

UV water purifiers use short-wavelength ultraviolet light emitted from a specially configured lamp to kill microorganisms and other microbial contaminants in water. This water disinfection method does not use chemicals or disinfectants and is extensively used across various industries. The population in developed and developing economies still use untreated water, which increases the risk of waterborne diseases. The risks are high in developing regions in comparison with the developed regions due to poor water quality. Growing population and rising urbanization are increasing the pressure to improve the quality of water. Reverse osmosis (RO), ultraviolet (UV), and gravity-based are some of the technologies that have evolved water purification over the years.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial UV water purifier market to grow at a CAGR of 6.20% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial UV Water Purifier Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial UV water purifier market: Aquafine, Atlantic Ultraviolet, BWT, Evoqua Water Technologies, and Xylem.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alfaa UV, American Air & Water, APPLIED MEMBRANES, Aquionics, Calgon Carbon, DAVEY WATER PRODUCTS, ESP Water Products, Heraeus, NALCO, Perfect Water Systems, Philips Lighting, Pure Aqua, PURETEC, Silverline,SUEZ,Trojan Technologies, Wyckomar, and XENEX DISINFECTION SERVICES.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is LED technology in UV lighting systems. UV light emitting bulb is one of the most important components of the UV water purifier system. The entire operation of the system is rendered useless without the UV bulbs. However, these UV bulbs have issues about reliability. The replacement of these bulbs with a more reliable alternative has been the most sought after. The emergence of the LED bulbs as an alternative to UV bulbs has caused quite a stir in the global commercial UV water purifier market.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing health concerns. The commercial UV water purifier market is gaining attention due to rising health concerns worldwide. When untreated water is consumed, it leads to different forms of ailments and health hazards as listed below. Microbial contaminants like bacteria that is commonly present in untreated drinking water affect millions of people every year. More than 0.28 million people worldwide die monthly due to waterborne diseases. Global efforts are directed toward increasing the rate of water reuse for commercial and drinking purpose to tackle water crisis prevalent across so many regions. Moreover, by focusing on improving the quality of drinking water, the chances of disease spread through contaminated water can be brought down.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High maintenance cost of UV units. The UV units, which form an integral part of the purifier system, require heavy maintenance that hinders the growth of the market. The lamps that are used to generate UV light for disinfection need to be replaced at short intervals. The intensity of the lamp reduces by over 58% after about one year of continuous use. These lamps when new, generate a level of dosage near about 60,000 µW-s/cm2. When the effective dosage of the lamp falls to 30,000 µW-s/cm2, the UV lamps are to be replaced with new ones.
