Ultraviolet Disinfection Equipment Market Size 2020 to 2027

Growing investments in wastewater plant expansion, coupled with the the prevalence of Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs), are expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period. Moreover an increase in the use of reclaimed water in landscape irrigation, car washing and urinals has contributed to the need for disinfection technologies, which are expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period.

Component Type Insights

Due to the rising demand for water and wastewater treatment plants, UV lamps led the industry and accounted for 31.0% of the worldwide revenue share in 2019. Demand is likely to be driven by the growing traction for proper disinfectant technologies along with increasing hygiene and safety concerns, especially in the healthcare and food & beverage industries. Maintenance and maintenance costs for sleeves, lamps, ballasts and other staffing provisions are highly dependent on the annual operating costs for this equipment. Over the past few years, the prices of UV disinfection equipment have decreased due to improved lamp and device designs, which have increased competition among manufacturers.

Ultraviolet Disinfection Equipment Market Share, By Component, 2020 (%)

UV lamps normally last up to 14,000 working hours and after every 12,000 hours, are usually altered. It is expected that quartz sleeves can last up to 8 years and are usually replaced after five years. Furthermore, according to the U.S., the ballast life cycle is roughly 15 years and is typically replaced every ten years. Fact Sheet on EPA Wastewater Technology

Application Insights

In 2019, the use of UV disinfection equipment in applications for water & wastewater treatment led the industry and accounted for 70.4% of global sales. Infections from five common foodborne pathogens including Cyclospora, Vibrio, STEC, Yersinia, and Campylobacter are on the rise, according to the food net report published by the Center for Disease Control in 2019. As a result, demand for UV technology is projected to boost the demand for disinfection equipment. An area of concern is diseases associated with the poultry industry and leafy green produce. As a result, the study by the Center for Disease Control also emphasises the need for improved widespread disinfection technologies, such as UV, to minimise contamination during food processing, preparation and manufacturing. The product discovers a wide variety of applications in point-of-entry, point-of-use, filling points, post-carbon philtre, pre-membrane filtration, pre-reverse osmosis system, post-water and pre-syrup storage tanks, post-reverse osmosis storage tank, prior to processing and distribution loops, and where there is a problem of bio-contamination, as UV disinfection prevents bacterial growth that may occur from seeing.

End-use Insights

Based on end user the ultraviolet disinfection equipment market is segmented into municipal, residential, commercial and industrial.

Ultraviolet Disinfection Equipment Market Share, By End Use, 2020 (%)

The municipal segment led the demand for UV disinfection equipment and accounted for over 45% of worldwide sales in 2019 due to the growing penetration of technology in developing countries' water & wastewater treatment plants. As it is cost-effective, safe, and eco-friendly, a number of municipal wastewater treatment plants have begun to implement UV disinfection treatment solutions over traditional technologies. The UV disinfection process only adds ultraviolet light and thus has no effect on the oxygen levels of the water and requires the necessary low contact time. The demand for goods is also expected to see a rise in wastewater disinfection for reuse across different applications in the municipal, commercial and industrial sectors.

Regional Insights

In 2019, North America accounted for the major share in the global market for UV disinfection equipment, due to increasing concerns about the environmental and health impacts of disinfection, chemical and biological pollutants as by-products in wastewater and water supply, which are the main opportunities to drive the future of this market. Moreover the market is mainly driven by the production of modern, low-cost, more reliable, environmentally-friendly, easy-to-operate and residue-free UV disinfection products.

Ultraviolet Disinfection Equipment Market Share, By Region, 2020 (%)

In addition, the growth of the UV disinfection market in North America is driven by increased incidences of pandemic diseases such as H1N1, chronic diseases, and ageing populations. Due to its acceptance as a disinfection process for drinking water and waste water treatment, UV technology has almost replaced chemical treatment, as it is environmentally friendly and safe to use. Therefore the demand for UV disinfection equipment in this area offers good competition for the chemical-based industries. In addition, in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, demand for UV disinfection equipment for surface disinfection application has increased. Instead of manual cleaning, hospitals across North America, especially in the U.S., now use automated UV-C light-based surface disinfection systems to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. During the forecast period, this factor is expected to drive the growth of the UV disinfection equipment market.
