The global demand for wastewater diffused aerators is directly correlated to the infrastructural development activities in the water and wastewater treatment sector. Swift growth of population and rising number of private households and residential areas owing to the rapid urbanization have been boosting the demand for uninterrupted water supply. However, developing and underdeveloped nations continue to face challenges posed by inadequate and repeatedly interrupted supply volumes of usable water, which highlights the need for treatment systems, consequently increasing the demand for wastewater diffused aerators.
Implementation of aerobic and non-aerobic water treatment methods, such as those involving the use of aeration technologies with filters, reverse osmosis, and polymer membranes are expected to fuel the growth of wastewater diffused aerators market over the forecast period.
Europe is projected to hold a significant market share owing to the industrial developments in the region. Furthermore, developing countries in Asia Pacific region are expected to witness robust growth in municipal wastewater treatment utilities driven by rapid economic growth and demographic changes. This is estimated to hold a prominent share in the wastewater diffused aerators market over the forecast period.
Worsening Challenges Posed by Water Scarcity to Propel the Wastewater Diffused Aerators Market
Over the past decade, the availability of fresh water has declined significantly across the globe and water pollution has witnessed a steady increase. According to the UN Water report, out of the total water available on the Earth’s surface, only 0.5% is fresh water can be used for consumption. As a result, many regions suffer from severe water scarcity and water stress. To prevent such situations, increasing efforts towards conservation and treatment of water are expected to fuel the growth in wastewater diffused aerators market in the coming years.
Fine Bubble Diffusers Witnessing High Demand
Enhanced focus on the use of aerators comprising of polymer membranes can lower the cost of tertiary treatment systems. Additionally, these have the added benefit of being durable, light in weight and cost effective which is projected to propel the wastewater diffused aerators market over the forecast timeline. Furthermore, utilities are focusing on the installation of fine bubble diffusers owing to their highest efficiency in aeration technology.
With technological innovations and advancements, the fine bubble diffusers, comprising EPDM or PTFE membrane, provides highest efficiency for aeration with minimum retention time. Owing to these characteristics, the implementation of fine bubble diffusers in new installations, along with replacement in existing plants is being materialized. This is expected to create a positive impact on the wastewater diffused aerators market.
High Capital Investments and Slow Rate of Return Impacting the Market Growth
Investments in water conservation and wastewater treatment faces several barriers. Water infrastructure is particularly capital intensive, long-lived and with high retrospective costs. It requires a high initial investment followed by a long payback period. Expenditures in water security usually delivers a mix of public and private benefits to multiple recipients.
Most of these benefits cannot be easily monetized, undermining potential revenue flows and thus, the ‘risk-return’ balance for potential investors. Although, several governments have shown intent to adopt the PPP model in water and wastewater management by proving long-term relaxations to private companies, this is causing increased water tariffs, which might act as a restraint for wastewater treatment sector and indirectly affect the wastewater diffused aerators market.
Increasing Influence of Regional Players Driving the Global Wastewater Diffused Aerators Market
The global wastewater diffused aerators market is evenly balanced between large players, who hold ~30-40% share in the overall wastewater diffused aerators market, with presence through regional and local distributors. Key strategies are the expansion of manufacturing facilities and launching of new products to strengthen their portfolio in the wastewater diffused aerators market.
The manufacturers of wastewater diffused aerators are currently pivoting on R&D and new product launches to resonate with the growing consumption of energy efficient products. Portfolio extension is also identified to remain as one of the key developmental strategies adopted by manufacturers of wastewater diffused aerators. For a strong foothold in target markets, manufacturers of wastewater diffused aerators are expected to rely on inorganic strategies, such as mergers and acquisitions.
In 2018, Ovivo Inc. signed an exclusive licensing agreement with DC Water to promote and distribute their patented post aerobic digestion technology. Recently, Evoqua Water Technologies LLC Launched ‘Water One’ service platform, this enables customers to outsource their water treatment systems to the company for complete EPC process of aeration system.
