Climate Change Shows Dramatic Impact On Water Disinfection And The Markets For Water Worldwide

Switzerland | Posted on April 15th, 2007

Water Disinfection Markets Worldwide increase faster through the Impact of Climate Change and ongoing Contaminations worldwide.
The Climate Change is more and more a key driving factor for contaminations
in food and specialy drinking water and waste water with known but also new
infectants.

The markets for water disinfection, water purification and securing water quality with other methods is growing from 22 billion US Dollar in 2005 worldwide between 8 and 25 percent depending on the sector, branch and country. Water Disinfection is a key problem in the 21 century. The costs and prices of water in the future will largely depend on the disinfection necessity and the applied technologies.

Several million people die every year on contaminated water. Mostly in developing countries but also in industrialised countries. The water quality is declining. Different water sectors face problems to keep the early water quality through conventional treatment/disinfect ion approaches. Meanwhile the water quality regulations are becoming more stringent, complex and costly. Last but not least, the concerns about the biotech pollution or terrorism challenge the capability of water disinfection as well. In this study different water disinfection/ purification methods will be discussed. This includes physical and chemical processes such as the usage of chlorine, UV, ozonization, filtration and membrane processes with pathogen removal, and also thermal processes such as distillation, evaporation/ condensation, and steam stripping , to name a few. A special part about nanotechnology and molecular technology is added in the study for the first time. The molecular featured
processes represent the developing trend of water disinfection/ purification because of their efficiency, preciseness and high performance- price ratio. A number of nanotechnologies are already utilised in membrane process and UV disinfection. More applications are to be found in more sectors in the water disinfection industries during the next years.

The market prospects in the field of water disinfection/ purification is very promising, with the current market value of 20 billion US dollars and with the increasing demands for clean water, we can expect a high growth of investment and sales in the special segment of water disinfection and water quality maintaining. This study examines the market development of water purification/ disinfection industries worldwide, for the years 2004-2015, respectively in the fields of drinking water, wastewater and water treatment.
