India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market Outlook & Trends
India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market size was estimated to be USD 1.97billion in 2019 and is anticipated to reach USD 4.66 billion in 2026 at Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.1% during the projection period 2020-2026. The increasing demand has been noticed for water and sewage treatment from municipal and industrial sectors in India over recent years. Besides, strict government regulations regarding effluence discharge in water bodies trigger more demand for sewage treatment from different industries. Under the Zero Liquid Discharge Regulation, the plants are directed to stop the discharge of wastewater in rivers, lakes, ponds, or sea by 2025. Increasing water pollution deteriorated the quality of water, and a shortage of water are the other factors driving the wastewater treatment services in all regions. As per Central Pollution Control Board, 231 sewage treatment plants are catering to the treatment of 21% sewage generation in India while the rest 79% remain untreated.
India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market Overview
Wastewater treatment refers to the process of removing contaminants from sewage or wastewater to make them recyclable, reusable, and acceptable to the environment. Various processes such as Phase separation, Sedimentation, Oxidation, Biochemical Oxidation, Chemical Oxidation, and others are followed for treating wastewaters. Different Wastewater Treatment plants have been established to treat wastewater from multiple industries and sectors. They include Sewage, Tertiary, Industrial Wastewater, Agriculture Wastewater, and Leachate Treatment plants.
A municipal sewage treatment process passes through primary, secondary, and final stages of treatment. Primary treatment removes solid material while secondary treatment digests dissolved and suspended organic material and nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous, and the third stage involves disinfection for killing pathogenic bacteria.
Industrial Wastewater disposal is a complicated and costly matter. The refineries usually have onsite wastewater treatment facilities to comply with environmental regulations. At the same time, other industries use municipal wastewater treatment plants for treating industrial effluence in the absence of industrial wastewater treatment plants or discharge it untreated in water bodies. But still, there is a massive gap between the need and availability of wastewater treatment facilities, offering tremendous opportunities to new and existing market players. As per the study, more than 60% of wastewater from industries, households and other sources continues to be discharged in water bodies without any treatment, and only 30% of the wastewater generated in India’s metro cities gets treated.
Strict Regulations Related to Industrial effluence
Various state and central governments in India are seeking increasing compliance with environmental norms from different industries. They also emphasize on water conservation and wastewater treatment for the ecological balance due to shrinking freshwater sources. The implementation of environmental policy and the shortage of water in many regions of India is anticipated to increase the demand for wastewater treatment services.
Growing Industrialization and Urbanization
India is witnessing immense growth in various industries such as pharmaceutical, Food & Beverages, Oil & Natural Gas, Textiles, and others, and urbanization is also growing. All these developments, along with Zero Liquid Discharge System implementation, trigger demand for wastewater treatment services.
The fluctuating price of membranes
Membranes are an essential material in wastewater treatment plants, and their price keeps fluctuating depending upon their availability. It brings variation in cost questioning feasibility of the treatment services.
Impact of COVID-19 in industry
All of the Industrial sector except Pharmaceutical and IT have experienced the adverse impact of COVID-19 with shrinking sales and production. The demand for wastewater treatment has registered downfall due to the limited or shutdown of manufacturing plants across the country. All stakeholders in the value chain are affected for short or medium-term with problems ranging from the shortage of supplies, uncertainties of distribution and delivery, liquidity crunch and shrinkage in industry demand. However, demand from Pharmaceutical plants for wastewater treatment has increased due to expansion in activities.
India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market is segmented based on the type of the plant, Process, Capacity of the plant, End-user, and Region.
India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market: By Type
Based on Treatment Plant Type, India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market is divided into Industrial wastewater treatment plants and Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants. India lacks municipal wastewater treatment plants to meet the needs of industrialization and urbanization. However, the industries increasingly develop onsite wastewater treatment plants to comply with environmental regulations. The industrial segment is expected to witness substantial CAGR due to rising awareness for the environment and government & private initiatives during the forecast period 2020-2026.
India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market: Process
Based on the treatment process, the India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market is divided into Moving Bed Biological Reactor (MBBR) and Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR). MBBR segment dominated the Indian market in 2019 and is expected to continue the trend over the projected period due to its benefits such as low maintenance, high efficiency, and less space occupancy.
India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market: By Region
Based on Region, India Wastewater Treatment Plants Market is segmented into South, North, East, and West Regions. The southern states dominated the Indian market during the year 2019, followed by West, North, and East regions. The growing number of manufacturing facilities, deficiency in groundwater, and compliance with environmental norms are expected to augment the market for wastewater treatment in the southern and all regions. Industrialized states such as Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, and others are expected to fuel the demand wastewater treatment services due to growth in the pharmaceutical, oil, and gas and food & beverage industries.
