Abstract:
The global market for nanostructured products used in water treatment was worth an estimated $1.4 billion in 2010 and will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.7% during the next 5 years to reach a value of $2.2 billion in 2015.

Nanotechnology in Water Treatment

Mumbai, India | Posted on September 4th, 2012

Most of the current market is made up of well-established treatment products, reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, and ultrafiltration membrane modules, which may be categorized as nanotech-based. The market for established products was nearly $1.4 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach $2.1 billion in 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2%.

Many emerging products, including nanofiber filters, carbon nanotubes, and a range of nanoparticles, are in the pre-commercial stages. The market for emerging products was $45 million in 2010. This sector will increase at a 20% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach a value of $112 million in 2015.

Scope

INTRODUCTION

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This BCC Research report provides an in-depth analysis of the market for nanotechnology products as applied to water treatment. These include reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, and ultrafiltration membrane modules, media filters comprised of nanofibers, carbon nanotubes, and nanoparticles. Applications for these products include potable water purification, process water production, and wastewater treatment.

Technical and market drivers are considered in evaluating the current worth of the technologies covered, and in forecasting growth and trends over the next 5 years. The conclusions are illustrated with statistical information on markets, applications, industry structure, and dynamics, along with technological developments.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

This study is intended for individuals requiring an in-depth analysis of the emerging water treatment industry based on nanotechnology products. The report traces significant developments and forecasts important trends, quantifies the various market sectors, and highlights companies active in those areas.

Because of the diverse and fragmented nature of the water treatment industry, it is difficult to find studies that gather such extensive data from far-reaching resources, and have this data presented in one comprehensive document. The fact that so many firms in this nascent sector are startup and/or new spinoff companies makes collecting data that much more difficult. This report contains a unique collection of information, analyses, forecasts, and conclusions that are very hard (or impossible) to find elsewhere.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This comprehensive report aims to provide those interested in investment, acquisition, or expansion into the water treatment market with the specific, detailed information crucial to making educated decisions. Senior marketing personnel, venture capitalists, executive planners, research directors, government officials, and suppliers to the industry who want to discover and exploit current or projected market niches should find this report of value. Readers who wish to understand how regulations, market pressures, and technology interact in the arena also will find this study worthwhile.

SCOPE OF REPORT

The study evaluates the global market for nanotechnology products for water treatment by technology type, application, and world region. Technologies include reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, and nanofiltration membrane elements; media filters comprised of nanofibers; carbon nanotubes; and nanoparticles. Analyzed applications are in municipal and residential drinking water treatment, municipal and domestic wastewater treatment, and groundwater remediation. World regions are categorized as North America (the U.S., Mexico, and Canada), Europe, the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

Market values are given in U.S. dollars. Forecasts are in constant U.S. dollars and growth rates are compounded. Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value. Industry structure, technological trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles, and competitive technologies are included in the study.

INFORMATION SOURCES

The information sources for this study include online research; SEC filings; annual reports; company brochures; patent literature; business, technical and industry journals; conference literature; and interviews with principals in the industry. Statistical and other data also were collected from the U.S. Department of Commerce, the American Membrane Technology Association, the International Desalination Association, the American Water Works Association, the Water Environment Research Federation, the WateReuse Foundation, the Water Resources Institute, the MBR-Network, and various academic institutions.
