Increased need for drinking water in Asia Pacific and Rest of World is observed to mark potential market opportunity in the long term

Global population will increase from around 7.4 Million to 8.5 Million between 2017 and 2030, estimated UN. Majority of the population growth will come from Asia Pacific and Rest of World countries. Therefore, as a large portion of people in these regions rely on chlorine or do not possess adequate disinfection technologies, they present strong UV disinfection market growth and scope.

In addition, growing manufacturing activities along with increasing GDP across China, India, Indonesia, South Africa, Brazil and other parts of Latin America are encouraging UV disinfection equipment suppliers to focus more in developing economies.

Whereas, Americas is the largest consuming regions of UV disinfection market driven by continuous shift towards urban living along with aging wastewater systems. Further, rising purified water prices which led to adoption of personal UV water treatment equipment in UK, Germany, France and other European countries favours long term market growth across these markets.

Launch of novel products and acquisitions across key market players strengthens market value

The key players operating in the market are investing to offer new UV Disinfection products for water treatment. For instance, in September 2019, Xylem launched highly efficient UV disinfection system for use in saltwater and other harsh water systems. In addition, Acuva in 2018 launched its new product which maximizes UV LED power to optimize disinfection performance of water while reducing energy consumption and extending LED life.

Further, strategic acquisitions are observed across market OEMs to expand their product portfolio. For instance, in 2018, Xylem acquired EmNet LLC to extend portfolio of company's solutions and operational capabilities to support the customers in managing storm water systems and wastewater network.

Key players operating in UV Disinfection Market include Xylem Inc., Trojan Technologies, Aquionics Inc., Calgon Carbon Corporation, EVOQUA Water Technologies Corp., Atlantic Ultraviolet, Advanced UV, American Ultraviolet, Atlantium Technologies, and Severn Trent Services.
