BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated the global biological wastewater treatment market size at USD 9.22 billion in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects the global biological wastewater treatment market size to grow at a CAGR of 6.04% reaching a value of USD 13.59 billion by 2029. Major growth drivers for the global biological wastewater treatment market include an increasing industrial water consumption and discharge, declining availability of freshwater, strict regulations regarding wastewater treatment & management and rapid urbanization & industrialization. There is a growing awareness of water pollution, which, combined with a rising demand for energy-efficient water treatment technologies, fuels the need for advanced wastewater treatment solutions. Also, the scarcity of safe drinking water and the increasing prevalence of water-borne diseases create favorable opportunities for the expansion of the biological wastewater treatment market during the forecast period. However, high maintenance and operational costs and decreasing capital funding are anticipated to restrain the overall market growth.
Global Biological Wastewater Treatment Market – Overview
The global biological wastewater treatment market refers to the industry and market sector that involves the treatment of wastewater using biological processes and technologies. It encompasses various methods, such as the use of microorganisms to break down organic matter and remove pollutants from wastewater. Biological wastewater treatment is considered a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to wastewater management, aiming to reduce the negative impact of wastewater on the environment and public health. The market includes technology providers, equipment manufacturers, engineering firms, and consulting services that offer a range of products and services for the biological treatment of wastewater in various sectors, including municipal, industrial, and agricultural wastewater treatment.
Impact of COVID-19 on Global Biological Wastewater Treatment Market
COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the global biological wastewater treatment market. Within the realm of wastewater, untreated contaminants, such as antibiotics, pharmaceutical waste, nano-plastics, and pesticides, posed serious health risks. In response to the pandemic, hospitals were compelled to adopt advanced wastewater treatment methods to contain the spread of infection. Biological wastewater treatment plants with multiple disinfection barriers became increasingly prevalent in isolation wards and quarantine centers throughout the pandemic. These factors had a positive influence on the growth of the Biological Wastewater Treatment market. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of proper and advanced wastewater treatment in hospitals as a means to control the transmission of infections. Consequently, decentralized wastewater treatment plants with multiple disinfection barriers were installed in quarantine centers and isolation wards during the pandemic. Hence, the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the biological wastewater treatment market.
Global Biological Wastewater Treatment Market – By Process
By process, the global biological wastewater treatment market is bifurcated into Aerobic and Anaerobic segments. The aerobic wastewater treatment segment is expected dominate the market share in the biological wastewater treatment market during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to several factors, including the rising volume of wastewater requiring discharge or reuse, the increasing demand for streamlined and cost-effective water clarification, aeration, and filtration processes, and the integration of efficient compact technologies like membrane bioreactors (MBRs) for both municipal and industrial applications. However, it is important to note that the anaerobic wastewater treatment segment is expected to record growth at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. This indicates a significant potential for expansion and adoption of anaerobic treatment methods in wastewater treatment processes.
Major players operating in the global biological wastewater treatment market include 3M, Calgon Carbon Corporation, Aquatech International LLC, Evoqua Water Technologies LLC, Pentair Plc., Veolia, Ecolab, Xylem, SUEZ, Dryden Aqua Ltd., Samco Technologies, Inc., and DAS Environmental Expert GmbH. To further enhance their market share, these companies employ various strategies, including mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, joint ventures, license agreements, and new product launches.
