The increasing prominence of infectious diseases is one of the significant factors influencing the demand for the product, such as UV (ultraviolet) lamps, which uses UV light to sterilize air, water, or surfaces in industrial, residential, and commercial areas. A minimum of 30 new diseases has appeared in the last 20 years and collectively pose a severe threat to the health of numerous individuals.
The Europe UV disinfection equipment market has is primarily driven by the growing demand for wastewater and safe drinking water treatment in the industrial application. Moreover, key factors such as strict government rules and regulation in economies such as the UK and Germany to focus on disposing wastewater from industries, increasing number of wastewater treatment plants across the region, rising introduction of advanced UV surface, water and air disinfection equipment’s by region based manufacturers and surge in the adoption of superior water treatment technologies are expected to escalate growth of UV disinfection equipment market across the Europe region.
During COVID-19 pandemic, UV disinfection equipment’s are being deployed at a large scale in healthcare environments for disinfection purposes. Surge in covid19 has mostly increased the demand for UV-C surface disinfection and air treatment equipment’s for offices and hospitals. High demand for UV disinfection equipment due to COVID-19, and growing threats of infectious diseases is further likely to drive market growth. According to Fresh Air UV, a leading manufacturer of UV disinfection equipment, the demand for UV disinfection equipment has been surged by 1,000.0% during the COVID-19 pandemic due to growing demand from residential and commercial end-use industries.
Augmented incidence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) paired with introduction of autonomous models is expected to affect the market positively.

Controller unit component is the main market changer in controlling the system diagnostics. Controllers units are mandatory to effectively control the electrical output of UV device and increasing adoption of UV systems in hospitals is expected to significantly drive the demand of the product.
After controller unit, UV lamps contributed to the maximum market share in 2019 and are projected to grow at a rate of 15.30% in the forecast period. These lamps produce UV-C, the wavelength of ultraviolet light effective in killing germs. Nevertheless, different kinds of lamps perform this function in various ways, depending on the usage and disinfection requirements. All UV lamps, irrespective of output, contain mercury, and at the time of operation of the lamp, the mercury is entirely contained within the lamp structure. Mercury is an essential part of the UV lamp, letting it produce the germ-killing UV-C light wavelength. As per overall analysis UV lamps are following footprints of controller unit to become a market changer.
The global UV disinfection equipment market is segmented into <5kW, 5kW to 10kW and >10Kw. >10kW power rating dominated the market in 2020. Equipment’s with high power ratings are widely used in municipal and industrial waste water treatment. The environmental concerns & regulatory guidelines regarding effluent quantity released in water through different industries along with depleting natural water reserves has caused natural water sources unsafe for domestic use, thereby promoting market growth.
By type the UV disinfection market is segmented into three types i.e. wall mounted, fixed and other systems. The fixed sytem held the largest share of the market followed by wall mounted type. Fixed uv disinfection systems are widely used in water and wastewater treatment plants across the municipal corporations in various countries. They are expensive and comes with high operating cost and power rating. Different wall mounted uv systems like water purifiers, bio uv water purifiers, air purifiers are available in the market. Moreover, various other systems like UV cabinets and handheld devices are used in dental, household, PPE disinfection and other applications.
The UV disinfection equipment market is majorly commercialized through online sales and offline sales. In the last few years, there has been incredible advancement in the area of online shopping. Online shopping makes it comfortable for people to choose a specific product amongst a vast range of products. The UV disinfection equipment’s are presently accessible with online retailers, with many of them aiming for expanding their product portfolio, thus creating it a formidable task at times for a buyer to categorize through all the opportunities and choose on the most fitting product. The market demand is expected to be high during the short-term and more for online multichannel platforms as vendors are expected to increase their online presence through e-commerce platforms (own or third party). Although online shopping is booming, the sale of home UV disinfection equipment via offline modes has remained higher than online sales as consumers prefer offline channels due to the lack of awareness about the types of equipment and logistical challenges.
By end use the market is segmented into municipal, residential commercial and industrial segments. UV disinfection equipment’s are largely used in municipal water treatment applications owing to its safe, chemical free and environment friendly nature. Capital cost and operating cost of these systems are low and they are easily maintainable. Moreover, contact time required is less than 10 seconds and no toxic by-products are formed during the UV disinfection process. UV is also an effective disinfectant for cryptosporidium and giardia protozoa’s which are chlorine resistant. It proves to be an advantageous alternative to the traditional water disinfection processes including chlorination and ozonation. Large number of municipalities have shifted from chemical based disinfection processes to UV due to the significant safety advantages they offer for people and their communities. Initial cost savings and long term advantages of UV further drives its demand for use in wastewater treatment plants.
Water disinfection application contributes largest market share.Moreover, increase in demand for clean and safe drinking water, owing to rise in population and declining freshwater resources is expected to have a positive impact on UV disinfection equipment market. In addition, due to large scale crop production, a pathogen outbreak can have a detrimental impact on harvest volumes and crop quality leading to loss in profits. Therefore, UV disinfection equipment is used to treat irrigation water to make it free from plant pathogens such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and nematodes. This factor is anticipated to increase the demand for UV disinfection equipment for water treatment.
The Europe market is studied for the key countries such as UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy. The UK is dominating the Europe UV disinfection equipment market. The country recorded a sales of 217.2 thousand units in 2020. Growing adoption of various UV disinfection equipment’s to treat process waters in pharmaceutical and food and beverage industry, vast presence of various domestic and international UV equipment manufacturing companies, rising significance of UV disinfection technology in chemical & healthcare sector for air treatment applications are likely to expand growth of UV disinfection equipment market across the country.
