Global Mobile Water Treatment Market - 2020-2027
発行: DataM Intelligence
Mobile water treatment services are able to provide pure water or provide a system that is fast, reliable, and profitable, and therefore a definitive option in critical situations. These treatment services around the world are increasingly benefiting from the treatment of surface and groundwater.
Mobile Water has been providing water treatment solutions for several types of applications, including emergency outages or equipment failures, planned outages and plant start-ups.
The demand for high purity water in industrial and portable applications has triggered growth worldwide in the mobile water treatment market across both mature and emerging economies. The rapid population growth coupled with rapid industrialization & technological developments has increased the demand for potable water. However, with the uneven distribution of freshwater has increased the incentive for seawater desalination, to meet the increased demand for potable water.
Currently, one-fifth of the world's population is facing scarcity in water resources. Another one quarter do not have access to water. According to the UN World Water Assessment Program, this water shortage is expected to affect up to 40% of world inhabitants by 2030. This has stirred the need for potable water which has increased the demand for water recycling as well as treatment process such as desalination.
Further, recent advancements in technology have helped mobile membrane filtration systems emerge and provide high quality water which will propel mobile water treatment market growth.
In addition, mobile membrane filtration systems are also a very effective long-term solution, the value proposition is deeply rooted in emergency response situations as these automated, self-contained units can be rapidly deployed and are capable of producing water on-site within hours of arrival. Regardless of the quality and source of water, as well as whether a solution is needed short- or long-term, mobile membrane filtration units have been proven as the most effective, ideal water treatment solution for use across the globe.
Further, the development and implementation of water treatment technologies have been mostly driven by two primary factors: the discovery of new rarer contaminants and the promulgation of new water quality standards.
However, the high capital cost is expected to hinder the market growth of mobile water treatment in the forecast period.
Based on the end user, the global mobile water treatment market is broadly segmented as municipal, construction, agriculture, and others. Among all of the applications, municipal dominate the market in terms of the increasing need for potable water, the depleting freshwater bodies coupled with the rapid population growth is expected to drive the mobile water treatment market.
Currently, one-fifth of the world's population is facing scarcity in water resources. Another one quarter do not have access to water. According to the UN World Water Assessment Program, this water shortage is expected to affect up to 40% of world inhabitants by 2030.
Moreover, freshwater is distributed very unevenly over the world. Fewer than 10 countries possess 60% of the world's available freshwater supply: Brazil, Russia, China, Canada, Indonesia, U.S., India, Columbia and the Democratic Republic of Congo and Even in these countries, the availability varies greatly.
For instance, in June 2016, Pall Corporation unveiled its new portfolio of mobile water products designed to meet customer needs across municipal and industrial markets. Water treatment solutions include the improved Aria FAST and all-new Impro FAST products, which can be rapidly deployed to ensure the continuity of safe, reliable water production for communities and industries around the world.
Based on the region, the global mobile water treatment market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. Among all of the regions, North America region is dominating the market due to increasing demand for potable water and a limited supply of naturally available freshwater. As such, mobile water tratment provides a viable alternative option to tackle the problem of water shortage.
Currently, membrane filtration is rapidly becoming accepted as a reliable water treatment technology in the United States. The California Department of Health Services has certified one MF membrane system for water treatment in the state, and has granted it 3-log Giardia removal credit and 0.5-log virus removal credit. It has also certified one UF membrane system and granted it 3-log Giardia removal credit and 4-log virus removal credit. Further, Membrane system construction costs are believed to be comparable to conventional plant construction costs up to a capacity of 20 MGD. However, this upper ceiling is rapidly rising. In fact, there are membrane plants being considered in the United States with capacities ranging from 30 to as high as 60 MGD.
Many companies focus on strategic partnerships and collaborations between market players to expand market reach and global footprint. For instance, in September 2018, Ovivo Inc., a global provider of water and wastewater treatment equipment, technology and systems, acquired the business of FilterBoxx Water & Environmental Corp. and its subsidiaries (collectively "FilterBoxx"). Ovivo operates all FilterBoxx activities under the name of FilterBoxx Inc., an Ovivo company.
Further, the Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a double-digit pace in the forecast period owing to increase in population and rapid urbanization. Thus, there is a need for developing alternative solutions such as mobile water treatment plant to cater to the needs of the region. Also, the drying climate and scarcity of freshwater supplies resulting from long periods of drought, coupled with further development and improvement in membrane technology have further driven the need for mobile water treatment plants.
Global mobile water treatment market is fragmented with the presence of many local and international players. The versatility in product features and opportunities of market growth through new product launches is poised to intensify competitiveness among companies.
However, Veolia Water Technologies, Evoqua Water Technologies, Orenco Systems, Inc., Lenntech, and WesTech Engineering, Inc. are some of the prominent players in the global mobile water treatment market. Veolia Water Technologies Armacell LLC is one of the major company in mobile water treatment and is enhancing the market through business expansion. For instance, in July 2018, Veolia Water Technologies has strengthened its water treatment capabilities by adding 600 and 900 gallons per minute (GPM) Reverse Osmosis (RO) units to its mobile water services fleet in the United States.
In, September 2018, SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions opened a new mobile water service center in Atlanta, United States. The new Atlanta service center will enable SUEZ to provide faster delivery of mobile water treatment systems for the Southeast, which equates to less downtime at a plant and increased cost savings.
