Dewatering Equipment Market by Type (Sludge (Application (Industrial,Municipal), Technology (Centrifuges, Belt Presses,Filter Presses, Vacuum Filters,Drying Beds,Sludge Lagoons)), Others (Paper, Plastic)), and Region

The global dewatering equipment market size is projected to grow from USD 4.3 billion in 2020 to USD 5.4 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2020 to 2025. Rising environmental awareness and stringent regulatory laws regarding sludge disposal are expected to drive the dewatering equipment market.

Industrial sludge and sewage sludge contain varying amounts of organic chemicals, toxic metals, chemical irritants, and pathogens, which may cause diseases. Untreated sludge disposed into rivers and seas adversely affects aquatic life and poses serious health hazards to communities living in the vicinity. Several environmental protection organizations have laid down sludge disposal laws that necessitate pretreatment as well as standards to be met prior to the disposal or reuse of sludge in agricultural or power generation activities.

In the Biosolids Laws and Regulations of the US Environmental Protection Agency, as per 40 CFR Part 503 (the Rule or Regulation), standards for the use or disposal of sewage sludge have been established. The standards consist of general requirements, pollutant limits, management practices, and operational standards for the final use or disposal of sewage sludge generated during the treatment of domestic sewage in the treatment facility. Standards are also included for sewage sludge applied to land, placed on a surface disposal site, or fired in a sewage sludge incinerator. Also included are pathogen and alternative vector attraction reduction requirements for sewage sludge applied to land or placed on a surface disposal site.

Similarly, in the European Union, the Sewage Sludge Directive 86/278/EEC on the protection of the environment and soil prohibits the use of untreated sludge on agricultural land. Sewage sludge needs to undergo biological, chemical, or heat treatment, as well as long-term storage or any other appropriate process, so as to significantly reduce its fermentability and health hazards resulting from its use. This directive specifies rules for treatment, sampling, analysis, and keeping detailed records of the composition and properties of the sludge prior to being used in agricultural and other purposes.

Hence, increasing pressure from environment protection organizations for the treatment of sludge before its disposal has triggered the growth of the market for dewatering equipment.

Europe accounted for the largest share in the global dewatering equipment market in 2019

Europe accounted for the largest share of the dewatering equipment market in 2019. This large share can be attributed to the increased sludge production due to the rising urbanization and population along with strict sludge treatment legislation introduced by the European Union. The dewatering equipment market is highly competitive in the European region due to the presence of established players, such as HUBER SE, Veolia Environnement SA, SUEZ, and Aqseptence Group. Stringent European laws on wastewater treatment and reuse of sludge for agriculture purposes are expected to drive the demand for dewatering equipment in the process chain of sludge treatment

Alfa Laval AB (Sweden), Andritz AG (Austria), Veolia Environnement SA (France), HUBER SE (Germany), Gruppo Pieralisi (Italy), Hitachi Zosen Corporation (Japan), Evoqua Water Technologies Corp. (US), SUEZ (France), GEA (Germany), Mitsubishi Kakoki Kaisha, Ltd. (Japan), Dewaco Ltd. (Finland), PHOENIX Process Equipment (US), Aqseptence Group (Germany), Flo Trend Systems, Inc. (US), Hiller GmbH (Germany), EMO (France), Kontek Ecology Systems Inc. (Canada), AES Arabia Ltd. (Saudi Arabia), ENCON Evaporators (US), Geofabrics Australasia Pty. Ltd. (Australia), and TenCate Geosynthetics Americas (US) are some of the leading players operating in the dewatering equipment market
