Big-Budget Water Treatment Plants to Dwindle Market Growth

The growing plans and initiatives by government to reduce water pollution will favor the market share for liquid waste management during the forecast period. For instance, in 2019, the ‘Love Water’ campaign was launched in the U.K, over 40 environmental groups, water companies, charities and regulatory authorities joined hands together to raise awareness about water pollution and importance of water in future.

Nonetheless, high-cost associated with the establishment of water treatment plants will sequentially restrict the liquid waste management market growth in developing countries. For instance, high income nations have the treatment capacity of over 70% of the wastewater production as compared to 8% in low income countries.

Rising Water Crisis to Enable Robust Development

The growing demand for clean water supply in developing countries has led to the recycling of waste water, which, in turn, will aid market development. As per the United Nation Environment Program survey, the demand for water will increase 50% by 2030.
