Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection has evolved as the top technology in the water treatment industry. Chlorine-based disinfection has been replaced with advanced disinfection techniques such as ozone and UV and this is the prime factor raising the UV technology’s adoption. In addition, the low cost of operation and installation, easy maintenance, and residue-less functioning are also amongst the chief factors fuelling the market for UV disinfection equipment. Furthermore, UV treatment helps in doubling the operational efficiency of water treatment in comparison to chlorine-based techniques. Hence, the development of the healthcare and chemical industries has been creating a number of opportunities for the market for UV disinfection equipment. The market for UV disinfection equipment stood at US$0.9 bn in 2012 and is expected to reach an approximate value of US$2.5 bn in 2019. The market is predicted to expand at a 14.10% CAGR between 2013 and 2019.


Rising Health Concerns to Boost UV Disinfection Equipment Market


UV treatment requires just 6 to 10 seconds in contact tanks, while chlorine treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes. In addition, factors such as the rising health concerns owing to the rising urbanization and the rising level of industrialization have also stimulated the UV disinfection equipment market. Furthermore, the steps taken by governments in various nations to provide safe drinking water to people is further raising the demand for UV disinfection equipment. On the other hand, the widespread utilization of chlorine-based low-cost disinfection methods is a prime restraint and may impede the growth of the market.
