Water and Wastewater Treatment Market Size to Surpass USD 497.5 BN by 2030

According to Precedence Research, the global water and wastewater treatment market size is projected to surpass around USD 497.5 billion by 2030 and expanding growth at a registered CAGR of 6.53% from 2022 to 2030.

Tokyo, Jan. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The water and wastewater treatment market size was accounted at USD 299.83 billion in 2022. The goal of wastewater treatment is to shield people and the environment from hazardous and damaging substances contained in wastewater. Facilities for water treatment hasten the natural process of purifying water. These facilities cleanse industrial and municipal wastewater, filter out contaminants, and then release the clean water back into the environment using a variety of techniques (physical, chemical, and biological).

Rapid urbanization and population growth, strict water treatment regulations, the growing demand for new water resources, the growing focus on public health & water quality, and the rising incidence of waterborne diseases are all factors driving the water and wastewater treatment market's high growth. However, the expensive installation, upkeep, and operating expenses are anticipated to significantly slow the growth of this industry.

The water and wastewater treatment market is anticipated to see considerable growth potential due to the rising demand for energy-efficient and cutting-edge water treatment technology. The main obstacles to the expansion of this sector are the aging and corrosion of current water infrastructure. The market for water and wastewater treatment is anticipated to see considerable growth potential due to the rising demand for energy-efficient and cutting-edge water treatment technology. The main obstacles to the expansion of this sector are the aging and corrosion of current water infrastructure.

Large-scale water treatment demand is expected in North America throughout the projection period from the pharmaceutical and beverage industries in nations like Canada and the U.S. Demand for water and wastewater treatment in the subcontinent has been sparked by the enormous requirement for electricity production to support industrial and infrastructure expansion.

Market dynamics


Industrial waste deposition is a result of increased urbanization and industrialization is increasing the demand. Due to both the tremendous demand for clean water caused by water scarcity and the depletion of water supplies and reservoirs brought on by the world's rapidly growing population, the water and wastewater treatment sector is expected to grow during the forecasted timescale. Strict regulations addressing environmental issues have also increased the adoption of water and wastewater treatment systems. Increased urbanization, industry, and population levels have caused an increase in industrial waste deposition in water bodies, which has increased demand for water and wastewater treatment techniques. The market growth graph will be stretched upward as a result. Water & wastewater treatment solutions have become extremely necessary as a consequence of the rise in the incidence of waterborne infections, which are now the primary cause of newborn and child mortality. This is what is driving market growth patterns.

Additionally, a noticeable increase in the treatment of sewage and drainage water in nations like China, India, and the U.S. would boost demand for wastewater treatment equipment, opening up new growth opportunities for the water and waste water treatment market. However, the market's future development may be threatened by high equipment prices and rising operating expenditures.


The wastewater treatment market confronts obstacles such expensive installation, equipment, and operating costs as well as outdated infrastructure in developed nations, despite significant development catalysts. According to a recent UN-INWEH report, China has the largest water storage infrastructure (about 23,841 dams, or 40% of the world's total), and the majority of the world's dams—about 55% of them—are located in just four Asian nations: China, Japan, India, and Republic of Korea. The majority of these dams are approaching the 50-year mark. This is an indication of a combination of an aging infrastructure system that poses a direct risk to the stability of numerous systems.


The development of the international market for wastewater treatment can be attributed to increased environmental measures by governmental entities for minimal waste creation. Nations all over the world have put strong regulations in place to prevent the unintentional release of wastewater and to stop aquatic bodies from becoming naturally polluted. According to the US EPA (United States Environmental Agency), the clean water act and no discharge zone were established to monitor and regulate the discharge of untreated sewage. Water Pollution Prevention and Control Law in China (WPPCL). Integrated Wastewater Discharge Standard Action Plan by MEP (Ministry of Environment Protection) for avoidance of water contamination. The need for untreated wastewater regulation is fueled by these efforts' emphasis on public health and water quality.


The governments of the economically underdeveloped nations do not provide appropriate financial assistance, and they continue to rely on outdated, ineffective infrastructure. Industrialized nations still have to pay for updating these systems, though. The sewage and water treatment facilities have a limited lifespan after which they must be updated. Due to these systems' short lifespans, each update procedure necessitates significant capital expenditures. Die Service with a large number of people is essential. For the maintenance and repair of pipe systems, significant financial resources are needed in many nations.
