Will Increasing Demand for Ultrapure Water Open Up Opportunities for Adoption of UV Disinfection Equipment Manufacturers?

UV systems are utilized for dichlorination, TOC reduction, deozonation, and treating/reducing hazardous and effluent discharges in the pharmaceutical and semiconductor sectors.

Because the water used in healthcare and pharmaceutical products must be devoid of pollutants such as ozone, bacteria, and chlorine, a considerable number of pharmaceutical enterprises rely on UV disinfection equipment for water disinfection. It has even been noticed that a majority of viruses in hospitals are spread through contaminated water. To combat the spread of infections, many hospitals have begun to use ultra-pure water.

Furthermore, this equipment is utilized in the cosmetics business to provide increased product shelf life because of the high demand for clean water that is free from pollutants and microbes.

As a result, increasing demand for ultrapure water in semiconductor and pharmaceutical sectors is creating numerous opportunities for the adoption of UV disinfection equipment.

Will Market Expansion Be Hampered by Lower Cost of Conventional Disinfectants?

Chlorine has long been used to disinfect wastewater. Despite widespread criticism for its health and environmental risks, chlorine is nevertheless widely utilized in underdeveloped nations due to its low cost. A chlorination system is significantly less expensive than a UV disinfection system in terms of total cost.

However, due to the greater advantages of UV disinfection systems, the impact of this constraint is now low and is likely to further decline during the projected period. This, however, eliminates the need for massive chlorine contact chambers, resulting in smaller footprint and lower installation costs.

Also, rising water-borne diseases and chlorine's ineffectiveness in treating hazardous microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia are prompting consumers to use more advanced disinfection techniques such as UV disinfection equipment.

Which Region Offers the Largest Opportunity for Sales of UV Disinfection Equipment?

With an absolute dollar opportunity of close to US$ 4.6 Bn, North America is expected to be the most lucrative market for UV disinfection equipment players.

Growing concerns about the environmental and health effects of disinfection, chemical, and biological contaminants as by-products in wastewater and supply water, are primary reasons driving this market. Sales are increasing due to development of advanced UV disinfection equipment that is low-cost, more effective, environment friendly, simple to run, and operates without leaving any residue.


Country-wise Analysis

Will China’s Regional UV Disinfection Equipment Brands Maintain their Dominance in the Market?

The market in China is projected to surge ahead at close to 19% CAGR from 2021 to 2031. In its war against COVID-19, China has been increasingly relying on cutting-edge technology. Several Chinese companies have introduced disinfectant sprays, contact-less deliveries, and other technology to reduce the danger of cross-infection.

Meanwhile, modern technologies are being deployed to speed up the innovation process. Several technologies have stood out in the country's fight against the new coronavirus by responding to the situation in a unique and timely manner.As a result, China will continue to be a lucrative market for disinfection equipment in East Asia.
