Highlights
- The U.S. market for advanced municipal water treatment technologies was valued at about $2.1 billion in 2013. The market is expected to reach nearly $2.3 billion in 2014 and $3.2 billion in 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% for the five-year period, 2014 to 2019.
- The total market for membrane filtration systems used in U.S. potable water treatment is expected to increase from $1.7 billion in 2014 to $2.4 billion in 2019, a CAGR of 7.4% for the five-year period 2014 to 2019.
- The U.S. market value of advanced disinfection systems is expected to increase from $555 million in 2014 to $797 million in 2019, a CAGR of 7.5% for the five-year period 2014 to 2019.

INTRODUCTION
Depending upon the source and what is included in the estimate, the global market for water and wastewater treatment equipment is reportedly valued at $500 billion to
$600 billion. Between $80 billion and $95 billon is related specifically to equipment. According to the United Nations’ Fifth World Water Development Report (2014), up to
$148 billion will need to be invested worldwide in water supplies and wastewater services annually to 2025. That figure reflects chronic underinvestment in water infrastructure. This problem is manifest not only in the developing world, but also in advanced economies, which will need to make considerable investments in the coming
years just to maintain services. The majority of expenditures for water treatment are for conventional water equipment and chemicals; however, an ever growing percentage relates to advanced treatment technologies, including membrane filtration, ultraviolet irradiation, ozone disinfection, and some novel disinfectant systems.

STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVES
This BCC Research marketing report provides an in-depth analysis of the market for advanced municipal drinking water treatment. These methods include membrane filtration, ultraviolet irradiation, ozone disinfection, and a few emerging novel processes. These so-called advanced technologies are known as “advanced” due to their improved effectiveness against a growing range of regulated drinking water contaminants, their decreased production of waste, their nonhazardous properties, their diminished demand for chemical additives, and sometimes their lower energy requirements.

Municipal drinking water treatments, whether physical, biological, or chemical processes, range in sophistication from ancient sieving methods to state-of-the-art computer-controlled techniques. Conventional drinking water treatment is accomplished by methods hundreds of years old. Processes consist of one or more of the following steps: flocculation and sedimentation, in which small particles coagulate into larger ones and settle out of the water stream; rapid sand filtration, to remove remaining particles; and disinfection with chlorine, to kill microbes. None of the traditional technologies will be evaluated in this report except to make comparisons to advanced treatments. Technical and market drivers are considered in evaluating the current value of the technologies and in forecasting growth and trends over the next five years. The conclusions are illustrated with statistical information on markets, applications, industry structure, and dynamics along with technological developments.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
This report is intended for those who require a thorough analysis of the advanced municipal drinking water treatment industry. It traces significant developments and forecasts important trends, quantifies the various market sectors, and profiles companies active in those areas. Because of the fragmented nature of the industry, it is difficult to find studies that gather extensive data from diverse resources and analyze it in the context of a comprehensive document. This report contains a unique collection of information and conclusions that is difficult to find elsewhere.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This comprehensive report aims to provide those interested in investment, acquisition, or expansion into the advanced drinking water treatment market with specific, detailed information crucial to making educated decisions. Senior marketing personnel, venture capitalists, executive planners, research directors, government officials, and suppliers to the water industry who want to discover and exploit current or projected market niches should find this report of value. Nonindustry readers who wish to understand how regulations, market pressures, and technology interact in the arena also will find this study worthwhile.

SCOPE OF REPORT
This report examines the market for four categories of advanced municipal water treatment: membrane filtration, ultraviolet irradiation, ozone disinfection, and some
novel advanced oxidation processes. Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value. Industry structure, technological trends, pricing considerations, R&D,
government regulations, company profiles, and competitive technologies are included in the study. The report is primarily a study of the U.S. market, but due to the international presence of some industry participants, global activities are included when appropriate.

METHODOLOGY
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. A comprehensive literature, patent, and Internet search was undertaken and key
industry players were queried. Research methodology was both quantitative and qualitative. Growth rates were calculated based on existing and proposed equipment
sales for each of the advanced methods during the forecast period. A key table in the report’s overview presents the average capital cost per gallon of water treated by
technology type. These figures then were multiplied by anticipated treatment capacity additions during the survey period. Consumables used in the processes, replacement membranes, UV lamps, and so on, were also taken into account. Values are given in U.S. dollars; forecasts are made in constant U.S. dollars, and growth rates are compounded. Calculations for system sales do not include design or engineering costs.

INFORMATION SOURCES
Information in this report was gleaned from many different sources. SEC filings, annual reports, patent literature, business, scientific, and industry journals, government
reports, census information, conference literature, patent documents, online resources, and industry participants have all been researched. Information from the following industry associations also was reviewed: American Membrane Technology Association, American Water Works Association, International Desalination Association, International Ozone Association, International Ultraviolet Association, Water and Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association, Water Environment Federation, and the Water Quality Association.
