Lockdown and Halt in Construction Activities Caused By Pandemic Hampered Market Growth

The COVID-19 outbreak had a detrimental impact on every aspect of the global economy, impacting various sectors such as building & construction and manufacturing. The majority of countries mentioned above suffered throughout the pandemic. Lockdowns, travel restrictions, and economic instability caused supply chain disruption and delays in critical industrial activities throughout the pandemic.

Supply chain disruptions caused by lockdown restrictions imposed during the pandemic forced manufacturers to reduce their production or even shut down their manufacturing facilities. Additionally, manufacturing companies were suffering from labor scarcity, both skilled and unskilled, resulting in delays in manufacturing and massive losses.

North America Septic Tanks Market Growth Factors

Increasing Awareness Regarding Effective Solutions For Waste Management To Boost Market Growth

The North American waste management industry has experienced positive growth in the last few years. The primary factor contributing to this growth is the increasing awareness among people about waste management. Septic tank solutions play a significant role in offering environmentally friendly and efficient waste management solutions for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. The volume of industrial and municipal waste has significantly increased in recent years, which has serious public health, economic, and environmental consequences. The increasing globalization and expanding population have contributed to an increased waste volume, propelling demand in waste management industry. Factors such as increased pollution, unlawful dumping, and increased environmental awareness have all contributed to the strong North America septic tanks market growth.

Additionally, most governmental organizations such as the United Nations and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) are actively participating in solving fundamental sanitation problems along with partner countries. The Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) is the most influential NGO that is actively working on the sanitation problem. In 2021, the Local government approved a USD 1.8 Million fund for the wastewater treatment facility.

Furthermore, rising industrialization in the U.S., which generates large amounts of waste, propels the growth of the market.


High Maintenance Cost of Concrete Septic Tank May Restrain the Market Growth

The septic tanks are available in concrete, polymer, and fiberglass material types. Concrete tanks have a more extended period of life and greater durability as compared to others.

The high cost of the concrete tanks is the prime factor that is restraining the market growth in the forecast period. Concrete tanks are highly weighted and take a longer time to install, which requires heavy machinery. Raw materials installation is the primary factor for the high cost of concrete tanks. In addition, it requires maintenance after a certain period.

Concrete Segment to Account for a Dominant Share Owing to its Wider Adoption

In terms of material, the market is segmented into concrete, polymer, and fiberglass.

The concrete segment accounted for the dominant share of the North America septic tanks market in 2022. Concrete has been used for constructing conventional septic tanks owing to its durability, longer life expectancy, low maintenance, and resistance to environmental changes. Several other factors, including lower risk of the installation process and no risk of tank collapse during the pumping process, are some of the factors influencing the growth of the segment.

However, comparatively lower prices than concrete counterparts, easy installation and transportation, and crack resistance are some of the reasons influencing the polymer segment growth.
