Global Pumps Market in Water and Wastewater Treatment Sector 2017-2021
About Pumps Market in Water and Wastewater Treatment Sector
Pumps are important components used in all industries. They are used for moving or raising fluid from one point to another within the plant or from one plant to another. Pumps are generally classified into centrifugal and positive displacement pumps. Centrifugal pumps are widely used in industries owing to their simple design, low cost, and ease of operation. Positive displacement pumps are used in areas where fluid flow is constant or fluid viscosity is high. The chemical, food and beverage, mining, oil and gas, and water and wastewater treatment industries are major consumers of pumps. Pumps are one of the key components of the water and wastewater treatment sector and a major consumer of electricity. They are used in nearly every area in the wastewater treatment value chain.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global pumps market in water and wastewater treatment sector to grow at a CAGR of 6.16% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Use of ultrasonic level sensors for pump control. Level sensors are used for detecting the level of fluids. They are used in wastewater treatment for pump control. With the help of a level, sensors pump characteristics such as rotational speed can be continuously monitored and significant changes can be tracked. Ultrasonic level sensors are finding increasing applications for pump monitoring in the water and wastewater industry. The greatest advantage that ultrasonic level sensors present is that they are non-contacting sensors and are unaffected by the change in temperature, pressure, viscosity and other fluid dynamics. This also means that they are less prone to fouling, which results in lower maintenance cost.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Emerging filtration technologies. In the last few years, conventional filtration techniques were the preferred choice for separation in water and wastewater treatment plants, owing to their low cost. However, several plants are now incorporating innovative filtration techniques. For instance, membrane technology is a filtration technique that is becoming increasingly popular due to its minimal use of chemicals, lower maintenance cost, and high degree of water quality. Its low use of chemicals has made it an ideal green technology for wastewater treatment in industries such as oil and gas that are subject to stringent regulations. Membrane bioreactor (MBR) is one such membrane filtration technology that has gained popularity in industrial wastewater treatment. With an increase in water quality standards and the emergence of new types of contaminants, the demand for new membrane technology has been increasing.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High equipment and operation cost. A large amount of electric power is required to transfer water through pumps. A typical wastewater treatment plant requires 30% to 40% of energy. With the rise in energy prices, utility costs are increasing, which has plummeted operating costs of equipment such as pumps in water treatment plants, as these are one of the major consumers of electric power. Pumps are also prone to corrosion problems, sludge accumulation, and severe water flow, which require frequent replacement. These increasing costs have limited the growth potential for pumps in the water and wastewater treatment sector.
