Home > Press > Emerging Treatment Technologies Drive Arsenic Mitigation Practices in Global Markets

Abstract:
Arsenic contamination of drinking water is a growing concern that affects the long-term health of large populations across the globe. According to the World Health Organization, some of the known health hazards of chronic arsenic ingestion through drinking water include cancer of the skin, lungs, bladder and kidney, as well as other skin changes such as pigmentation and thickening, also known as hyperkeratosis. With this information, industry participants can expect significant opportunities in the fields of arsenic detection and development of efficient mitigation methodologies.

Emerging Treatment Technologies Drive Arsenic Mitigation Practices in Global Markets

PALO ALTO, CA | Posted on October 8th, 2007

"The magnitude of the arsenic contamination of drinking water resources around the world is the driving force behind the advancement and growth of emerging treatment technologies," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Eric Meliton. "Technological advances in the mitigation of arsenic will determine how much longer millions of people around the world will continue to be exposed to this contaminant through their drinking water resources."

If you are interested in a virtual brochure, which provides manufacturers, end users, and other industry participants with an overview of Frost & Sullivan's latest analysis of Arsenic Contamination of Drinking Water - A Global Perspective, then send an e-mail to Johanna Haynes, Corporate Communications, at with the following information: your full name, company name, title, telephone number, e-mail address, city, state, and country. We will send you the information via e-mail upon receipt of the above information.

Countries greatly affected by arsenic contamination of drinking water resources include the United States, China, India and Bangladesh. The problem also affects populations in North and South America, along with other parts of Asia. Although current technological practices such as flocculation and adsorptive filter media address these issues, emerging technologies will continue to push the worldwide mitigation of arsenic. Various examples of mitigation nanotechnology will become the norm in the near future.

The sheer volume of those affected by arsenic contamination proves a major challenge for the industry. Millions of people in third world nations need mitigation technologies, medical treatment and infrastructure to properly address the issue on a long-term basis. Moreover, considering the lack of national funding, the extensive costs of high-tech mitigation practices, and the lack of knowledge and awareness of the people living in affected areas, arsenic contamination could potentially pose problems for many years to come.

"As new mitigation technologies continue to emerge, manufacturers and developers of current technologies must adapt to the changing demands of the marketplace," says Meliton. "Most importantly, participants will need to work toward lowering product costs so as to make them affordable in third world countries."

Emerging technologies must continue to enhance mitigation practices and create partnerships with national governments and world aid organizations to continue to address contamination issues in affected countries. R&D of treatment technologies must also occur at the source of the issue so that those affected will not continue to live with this burden.

Arsenic Contamination of Drinking Water - A Global Perspective is part of the Environmental and Building Technologies Growth Partnership Service, which also includes research in the following markets: U.S. Analysis of Upcoming Drinking Water Legislation, North American Commercial Water Treatment Equipments Markets and U.S. Aqueous Analytical Instrumentation Market. All research included in subscriptions provide detailed market opportunities and industry trends that are evaluated following extensive interviews with market participants. Interviews with the press are available.
