“In two to five years, decentralized W&WWT systems will register a focused investment as part of smart city infrastructure to reduce the stress on centralized infrastructure,” said Paul Hudson, Energy & Environment Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Further, from a solution-type perspective, both—decentralized containerized/packaged WWT and WT systems—will contribute roughly at the same rate to expedite the overall industry’s growth over the forecast period.”
Hudson added: “Water and energy-as-a-service is emerging and likely to have a high adoption rate in the next two to three years. The business model combines WWT with energy production from sludge, a wastewater byproduct. This model is expected to record high adoption in North America and fast-growing markets such as Asia-Pacific.”
Globally, exploring decentralized solutions to improve water sustainability presents lucrative growth prospects to decentralized containerized/packaged W&WWT systems market participants. Players should explore the following:
- Chemical-free membrane operation: Solution providers should work closely with membrane manufacturers to customize membranes for chemical-free operations and reduce chemical consumption.
- Solar-powered containerized/packaged W&WWT systems: Solar or renewable-powered treatment systems are forecast to record high adoption among municipal/domestic and commercial customers in MEA and Latin America.
- Competitive value-added solutions and services: Companies can offer complimentary modular/packaged conveyance systems or as a value-add to enhance market penetration and improve the value proposition.
- Smart Internet of Things (IoT)-based control and monitoring systems: Equipping treatment systems with off-the-shelf IoT solutions will enable original equipment manufacturers to offer real-time diagnostics, preventive maintenance, and performance optimization solutions, thereby ensuring the rate on return and long-term sustainability.
