Industrial wastewater treatment covers the mechanisms and processes used to treat contaminated water in some way by anthropogenic industrial or commercial activities before its release into the environment or its reuse. Most industries produce some wet waste, although recent trends in the developed world have been to minimize such production or recycle such waste within the production process. However, many industries remain dependent on processes that produce wastewaters. The major benefits of using wastewater treatment systems in the industrial sector are waste reduction, energy production, fertilizer production, and the provision of clean and processed water.

The growth of the industrial wastewater treatment market is attributed to stringent water treatment regulations, lack of freshwater resources, and the increasing prevalence of waterborne diseases. Furthermore, the growing demand for energy-efficient and advanced water treatment technologies and increasing demand for wastewater recycling, reuse, & biogas generation are expected to create significant opportunities for the players operating in this market.

However, the high installation, maintenance, and operational costs are expected to restrain the growth of this market to a certain extent. The aging of existing water infrastructure is one of the major challenges to the growth of the industrial wastewater treatment market.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Industrial Wastewater Treatment Market

The COVID-19 pandemic slowed down investments for installing new wastewater treatment plants in many micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises/businesses worldwide due to the decline in revenues and outcomes. It also increased the importance of operational reliability due to the cost of disruption. Many large users of water downscaled or reduced activities, resulting in declining industrial demand. Due to lockdowns and travel restrictions, the decline in demand from large industrial and commercial users significantly reduced water utility revenues. A survey by the Global Water Leaders Group estimated that the industrial demand for water plummeted by an average of 27% due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Deeper revenue losses are projected across the whole water supply chain, including operators, technology companies, contractors, chemical suppliers, and consultants.

In addition, operations were also affected due to the increased risk of infection among utility staff. Operational continuity and flexibility are key to keeping essential water and sanitation services running while pushing forward ongoing construction projects. Many governments identified people working in the water and sewerage industry as essential workers, enabling utilities to maintain continuity of service.
