Mapping the Evolution of UV Lamps Market

The ultra violet technology traces back to the early 1800’s, when the scientists discovered the UV bacterial action, which further led to the development of UV LED in 1906. The first full scale UV disinfection system was developed in 1910 for use on the pre-filtered water from the river Durance in Marseille, France.

This marked the beginning of the UV lamps applications for water treatment. Since then, a growing number of companies have been deploying UV lamps based disinfection systems, owing to their effectiveness at inactivating most viruses, spares and cysts. As per the PMR analysis, the UV lamps market valued~US$ 700 Mn in 2018, and is anticipated that the sales will pick pace by ~14% in 2019.
