About Packaged Wastewater Treatment
Packaged wastewater treatment plants are pre-engineered and custom designed treatment facilities used to treat wastewater for small communities, municipalities, and industries. These plants are typically constructed in a factory and simply transported to and installed at the site of requirement. They are designed to treat 0.002- 5 MGD water, depending on the requirement. Packaged wastewater treatment plants are not only compact and easy to operate but also customizable. When compared to conventional treatment plants, these plants require less time to commission. Packaged wastewater treatment plants are ideal for communities and industries in remote areas with no connection or access to centralized treatment facilities. Once the water is treated, it can either be safely discharged into water bodies or reused for industrial or agricultural use.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global packaged wastewater treatment market to grow at a CAGR of 8.56% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global packaged wastewater treatment market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the capital cost incurred by commonly used technologies, such as extended aeration, sequencing batch reactors (SBR), moving bed biological reactor (MBBR), and membrane bioreactor (MBR), that are used to treat the wastewater. These systems enable to meet the stringent effluent norms that are applicable in some of the countries without incurring high capital costs.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Packaged Wastewater Treatment Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Packaged Wastewater Treatment Market: GE Water & Process Technologies Inc., Ovivo Inc., Pollution Control System (PCS) Inc., RWL Water LLC, Smith & Loveless Inc., and Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies S.A.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Corix water systems, CST wastewater solutions, Dynamic aqua science inc, Enviroquip, Global treat inc, MWH, Trident group, Winelco, WPL international, and Zenon.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The increased need for safe water in developing countries is one of the main reasons for the increase in demand for water treatment equipment globally. Few people in the developing countries in APAC, Africa, and the Middle East have access to potable water. Also, many developing countries such as China and India face difficulties in treating water and discharging wastewater safely.”
According to the report, the water crisis globally has increased the importance of treating wastewater for reuse, and has driven the demand for wastewater treatment technologies. A packaged wastewater treatment allows the efficient utilization of discarded water released from industries and municipal use. The treated water can be re-used for agriculture and other purposes, reducing the stress on ground water. Further, wastewater treatments can remove disease-causing contaminants from water and improve its quality.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the market is high operational costs. Packaged wastewater treatment plants require regular cleaning and maintenance by trained professionals usually through service contracts that add to the costs.
