The treatment of wastewater from industrial processes, toilet flushing, and landscape and agricultural irrigation is referred to as water recycling. Wastewater treatment is crucial in planning reuse of wastewater in order to meet the escalating needs of the increasing population worldwide. Not only does recycling of water stave off shortages, it also confers environmental benefits. Natural habitats such as wetlands can keep their water supplies when water is recycled.
Rivergreen Water Recycling, Water Recycling Systems, Nexus Water, Sourcewater, Inc., Melbourne Water, Hitachi, Phoenix, Hyflux, and Reclaim Equipment Company are some of the leading companies operating in the global market for water recycle and reuse.
Key applications of non-potable recycled water that hold growth potential
Agriculture, landscaping, and irrigation are some of the primary applications of non-potable water. These sectors are likely to contribute significantly to the revenue generated by the overall market. Paper mills, dust control, construction activities, artificial lakes, and concrete mixing are a few other applications of recycled water. As the global building and construction industry is expanding rapidly, the demand from this application is expected to soar. Moreover, the oil refineries and power plants segments are likely to expand substantially. Several industries can save energy, maintenance costs, and operation costs via recycled water in processes including cooling.
Regions are expected to witness considerable growth over the forthcoming years
The countries in North America are exhibiting rising demand for recycled water for non-potable requirements such as agriculture, landscape, and public parks. An increasing adoption of recycled water can be observed across the European and North American terrain, as several new projects are also undertaken. For instance, in the city of Napa, U.S., the pipeline for cleaned-up wastewater for crops is expected to be extended for another 1.4 miles during April 2017.
Asia Pacific is also showcasing lucrative opportunities for the water recycle and reuse market. Several government initiatives are driving the market in the emerging economies. In India, for example, the Governor’s residence and office, situated in Mumbai, are expected to receive recycled water soon, according to an announcement made during April 2017.
Factors Which are driving and restraining the global market for water recycle and reuse
The larger share of the global water recycling market is occupied by the non-potable water uses. However, numerous projects are making the use of recycled water for potable uses as well. Ground water aquifers are being recharged and surface water reservoirs are considerably benefiting from the use of recycled water. As a result, the global demand for recycling of water has considerably risen. As recycling and reuse of water has emerged as an efficient solution for supplying vast quantities of water without compromising on human health, the global market for water recycle and reuse is gaining traction. However, lack of awareness about these processes might impede the market’s growth.
