Executive Summary

•The water treatment equipment market in the food and beverage industry is expected to grow from $xx.x million in 2010 to $xxx.x million by 2017, with a CAGR of x.x percent.
•The wastewater treatment equipment market in the food and beverage industry is expected to grow from $xxx.x million in 2010 to $xxx.x million by 2017, with a CAGR of x.x percent.
•The North American water and wastewater treatment equipment market is mature, and it is expected to grow slowly until 2017. Revenue growth is expected from rebuilds and retrofits.
•Sustainability is a key long-term driver in the industry. Most of the industry participants are looking to convert sustainability challenges into business advantages.
•Food processers are trying to lower energy and waste disposal costs.
•Rising wastewater surcharges and utility costs as well as consumer pressure for “green” products are some of the factors that are driving end users to pursue on-site energy recovery to treat waste.
•Food processing plants are focusing on their water footprints, wastewater discharges, regulatory compliance, and wastewater treatment costs.

Market Overview—Definitions

•For the purposes of this research service, the water and wastewater treatment equipment market in the food and beverage industry contains equipment used in the treatment of industrial processes and wastewater, including sludge.
•This study captures the equipment used in several end-user markets such as meat and poultry, dairy, beverages, breweries, bakeries, fruits, and vegetable processing in the U.S. market.
•Equipment covered in this study for water treatment includes membrane equipment for reverse osmosis (RO), ultrafiltration (UF), and microfiltration (MF); demineralization equipment, or ion-exchange systems; and disinfection treatment with ultraviolent (UV) and ozone equipment.
•Pre-filtration equipment includes media filters, gravel, flocculation, sand filters and activated carbon. The estimated market size is from $x.x to $xx.x million, depending on the needs of the end-user market.
•Wastewater treatment equipment includes dissolved air flotation (DAF) equipment for primary treatment, secondary treatment equipment, tertiary treatment equipment, and sludge treatment equipment.
•The analysis excludes revenue generated from turnkey, design, and implementation; peripheral equipment such as valves, pumps, and monitoring systems; consultancy fees; and other replacement parts that are not a part of the initial equipment sale.
•Market revenue of the separate treatment equipment solutions includes the equipment commonly used in North America by design and engineering firms; original equipment manufacturers (OEMs); and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firms.
•This market analysis examines the growth of water and wastewater treatment equipment during the forecast period and measures across the number of solutions and installations rather than unit shipments.
•For the purposes of this study, North America covers the U.S. market.
•The food and beverage industry is an extremely active market in the United States and is driven by demanding consumers seeking variety, product excellence, and enhanced end-user value.
•The food and beverage industry requires large volumes of and extremely high-quality water. Water is predominantly used in all the steps of a food production process such as food cleaning, sanitizing, production equipment cleaning, and cooking.
•Most of the food processing plants use multiple technologies in series. For example, anaerobic treatment is often followed by aerobic treatment to oxidize the final effluent.
•End users are on the lookout for equipment and processes that will keep their water consumption under control and, at the same time, provide them with high-quality water.
•Wastewater from food processing plants typically does not contain conventional toxic chemicals. However, it is subjected to high levels of bacterial contamination.
•Food processing wastewaters contain high biological oxygen demand (BOD) concentrations; high levels of dissolved and or suspended solids, including fats, oils, and grease (FOG); nutrients such as ammonia and phosphates; and chemical oxygen demand (COD) concentrations.
•Soft drink process plants generate less wastewater than those in other food processing sectors. Meat and poultry facilities have waste streams with an extremely high BOD content.

Market Overview—North American Market Overview

•The U.S. water and wastewater treatment equipment market in the food and beverage industry is characterized as mature.
•The recent economic downturn has impacted spending on and developing of existing infrastructure for processing plants.
•Despite being one of the world’s largest markets in food and beverage production, the growth of water and wastewater treatment equipment is limited because of market maturity, economic uncertainty, and the lack of new food processing plants being developed.
•Sustainability is a growing trend among food and beverage manufacturers and is likely to increase during the forecast period.
