US demand to rise 5.2% annually through 2019

Demand for water treatment equipment is expected to rise 5.2 percent annually to $14.7 billion in 2019. Gains will be supported by sustained efforts to decrease water consumption through the treatment and reuse of wastewater and by rising water treatment standards in industrial markets such as manufacturing, resource extraction, and power generation. Technologies such as membrane systems, disinfection equipment, and distillation equipment will show the best growth prospects as these products can address a wide variety of water quality problems and may also allow users to decrease re-liance on potentially hazardous solutions such as water treatment chemicals. Since many types of membrane systems and disinfection equipment are most effective when water is pretreated, demand for more established products such as conventional filtration systems will also benefit.

Municipal water treatment to remain largest market

The municipal market will continue to be the largest market for water treatment equipment. Although its growth will be below the overall average, gains in the municipal market will outpace overall growth in municipal water use. While users in the municipal market are often slower to adopt new water treatment technology than are users in industrial markets, tightening restrictions on chem-ical use and higher standards for drinking water and wastewater quality will support greater reliance on water treatment equip-ment. Additionally, drought conditions in Arizona, California, and Texas have prompted many municipal water sup-pliers to turn to unconventional sources, including seawater and brackish water, which require more treatment, often with more expensive equipment such as mem-brane systems or distillation equipment.

Resource extraction to be fastest growing market

Resource extraction is forecast to be the fastest-growing market for water treat¬ment equipment, as water consumption and wastewater treatment continue to be issues of concern to both oil and gas field operators and environmental agencies. The US EPA is also in the process of updating its standards for the treatment of wastewater from oil and gas shale and coalbed formations, which could further boost the market for water treatment equipment in resource extraction. Despite this, gains will be slower than the double-digit increases seen in the 2009-2014 period, when hydraulic fracturing activities and oil and gas field production were expanding at a very strong rate.
Among other industrial markets for water treatment equipment, gains will be supported by increased manufacturing output and energy generation and by changing water use trends, including higher levels of wastewater recycling and reuse and increasing standards for pro-cess water. Wastewater that is treated for reuse typically requires more processing than wastewater that is being treated for disposal, which will promote demand for a wide range of water treatment equip¬ment. Recycled process water may also be susceptible to higher concentrations of contaminants than water in once-through systems. Finally, more stringent require¬ments for process water is prompting many users to decrease the volume of water treatment chemicals used, as these chemicals are often viewed as contami¬nants in their own right. This will support demand for products -- such as mem¬brane systems or disinfection equipment -- that can partially or fully replace the use of certain chemicals.
