The U.S. market for advanced water technologies is made up of filtration technology, ozone disinfection, UV irradiation, and novel oxidation processes was valued at $REDACTED in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED% through 2026. The global market for advanced water technologies was valued at $REDACTED in 2020 and is expected to reach $REDACTED by 2026, growing at a CAGR of REDACTED% from 2021 to 2026.

Government regulation of drinking water contaminants is the most important element in forecasting growth in this market. Additional market drivers are the growing U.S. population, with 79 million additional Americans expected by 2060 and a deteriorating water infrastructure. The major market inhibitor relates to limited financial resources, such as the level of federal and state spending, and continuing economic uncertainties that curb public sector borrowing.

For the membrane technologies used in desalination, a growing water shortage in many areas is also a major factor in the industry’s future.The growing global water shortage is one of the most serious crises of the twenty-first century.

While water supply has always been a critical issue in the arid Middle East, U.S. water shortages are a more recent and frightening prospect. Reverse osmosis (RO) desalination of brackish (mixed salt and fresh) water and seawater can bring increased potable supplies at surprisingly low cost. Electrodialysis reversal (EDR) and nanofiltration (NF) also have a niche in converting brackish water to fresh.

In the 1990s, waterborne disease outbreaks in the U.S. and Canada alerted utilities to the inefficiency of standard treatment processes. Plant operators discovered these shortfalls could be addressed, however, by implementing a physical barrier to the microbes with the low-pressure membrane methods of microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF).

Membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology, on the other hand, was also considered as an efficient method in the early 2000s as it removes all contaminants including biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), bacteria, phosphorus, nitrogen, and total suspended solids from the water. Together, in the U.S. the five membrane treatments and the MBR technique for the municipal drinking water market were valued at $REDACTED in 2020, with a predicted CAGR of REDACTED% for the forecast period. At the global level, these five technologies and the MBR technique together were valued at $REDACTED in 2020 and will grow at a CAGR of REDACTED% from 2021 to 2026.

As an alternative to imposing a physical barrier to pathogens, potable water also can be rid of most dangerous disease microbes through disinfection; this is most commonly accomplished by adding chlorine. The discovery that chlorine can create harmful by-products in the presence of organics in surface water feeds has led to a range of replacement disinfectants including ozone, UV, and some novel oxidants.
