India is the second largest water consuming country across the globe and presently witnesses desperate shortage of water resources. The country’s depleting water resources are unable to meet the growing demand for water from various sectors of the economy. As the growing population in India continues to exert pressure on depleting water resources, the process of wastewater treatment is indispensable. Treatment of wastewater is vital for solving the growing water crisis in the country. The Wastewater treatment and management Industry in India is booming and presents several opportunities to the players who wish to enter the market. The increasing water consumption coupled with growing awareness in the country regarding issues, legislations and technology, has fuelled the demand for wastewater treatment and the market witnessed revenues of USD ~ million in the year 2013 as compared to revenue of USD ~ million in the year 2007. The Market has been escalating at a CAGR of 9.7% over the span of 2007-2013.

Emancipation of untreated sewage in water courses, both surface and ground, is the major water polluting source in India. There is a huge gap between generation and treatment of domestic sewage in India. Hence, there is an immediate need for installation of effectual treatment plants equipped with latest technologies which help in reducing BOD levels in the wastewater generated. The revenue generated from treating municipal sewage/wastewater in the country increased to USD ~ million in 2013 from USD ~ million in 2007. The number of Private-Public Partnership (PPP) projects providing domestic sewage treatments is expected to increase and the revenues for domestic wastewater treatment are expected to contribute ~% to the revenues of municipal wastewater treatment whereas the share of institutional is projected to reach ~% in the year 2018, while other sources would contribute ~% in the same year.
