COVID-19 IMPACT ANALYSIS ON GLOBAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT SERVICES
Axiom MRC provides a 360-degree analysis of micro and macro-economic factors in the global Wastewater Treatment Services market. In addition, a complete analysis of changes in the global Wastewater Treatment Services market expenditure, and economic and international policies on the supply and demand side. The report also studies the impact of a pandemic on global economies, international trade, business investments, GDP, and marketing strategies of key players present in the market. COVID-19 pandemic seems to be a public emergency after World War 2. COVID-19 impacted many industries around the world. Due to the COVID pandemic, few markets were pushed up and some got down in revenue and sales, and the global wastewater treatment is one such market that has gained attention in COVID-19. Since COVID-19 virus can spread through water, large-scale treatment of water across cities became extremely important, in order to curtail the spread of the virus. Similarly, the need for proper and advanced wastewater treatment in hospitals became a major concern for governments as well as authorities to prevent the second wave of pandemic. COVID-19 brought additional challenges with the increased use of medical products, including masks and gloves made of plastics, textiles, and other single-use products. These products are openly disposed in open environment or in an existing drainage system, contributing to the already COVID situation. To minimize the virus spread, various governments have implemented various measures. However, several such initiatives have boosted the demand for as well as sales of the global wastewater treatment market.
MARKET OVERVIEW- GLOBAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT SERVICES
The global Wastewater Treatment Services market has been driven by increased concern regarding environmental and public health. The factors contributing to the market’s growth are strict government rules on the emission of waste products in clean water and increased urbanization. The various industries, such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper, and metal mining, require the use of clean water for operations in plants. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases caused by toxic and contemning water, the need to boost human health and food security and improve sanitization is driving the wastewater treatment market.
The market is expected to have a new opportunity with the increasing adoption to a sustainable approach of reusing wastewater for non-potable applications, providing a consistent source of alternative water to federal facilities. The wastewater effluent can be used for landscape irrigation, vehicle wash, construction-related applications, dust suppression, ornamental pond, and fountain filling, cooling tower makeup, and toilet and urinal flushing. Water recycling offers resources and financial savings. There are many technological advancements taking place in wastewater treatment to lower the water risk of a site, making it more water secure. Water is a critical source in any industry, and with government rules, there is not a major amount of water for industrial and municipal use. Thus, the recycling of wastewater is crucial.
There are three ways to treat the water: primary, secondary, and tertiary treatment. Wastewater treatments can be costly and require specific skills and expertise. This is the major constraining factor in the wastewater treatment services market. More treatment is required if a higher number of contaminants are present in the water, and the process can be costly. For instance, the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) estimates USD 80 billion will be spent on sewerage infrastructure and USD 33 billion on wastewater treatment. The cost depends on the flow rate of the effluent, water quality, the required degree of purity, and construction materials.
MARKET GROWTH CHALLENGES
There are some challenges associated with the wastewater treatment market, such as energy consumption, skilled staffing, and disposal of excess sludge produced during the process. Wastewater treatment requires 2 - 3% of a developed nation’s electrical power or approximately 60 TWh (terawatt hours) per year. This energy consumption is one of the largest expenses in operating a wastewater treatment plant. Along, with this, the wastewater treatment Operators must be trained with the required skills. They are on call 24 hours a day and are responsible for overseeing everything from pipe leaks and valves to electrical and instrumentation equipment. These are some factors that seem to be challenging in the wastewater treatment services market.
