Global Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Equipment Market to Grow at 17.4% During 2022-2027, Spurred by Growing Demand for Safe Drinking Water

Published on Jun 11, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Equipment Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global ultraviolet (UV) disinfection equipment market reached a value of US$ 2.2 Billion in 2021. Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection equipment is the device that is utilized for inactivating waterborne pathogens without the use of chemicals. Short-wavelength UV lights are employed to disinfect water by inactivating or destroying bacteria. These rays destroy nucleic acids and disrupt the DNA of the microorganisms, which aid in obstructing their vital cellular functions. UV equipment employs light-emitting diodes (LEDs), bulbs and lamps in close contact with water for disinfecting it. Apart from this, they can also be utilized for the purification of food and industrial solvents. As a result, UV disinfection solutions are widely used for numerous industrial, commercial, aquatic and high-purity applications across the food and beverages, and biopharmaceutical industries.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Equipment Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising demand for clean and safe drinking water on the global level. This is facilitated by the population explosion and scarcity of freshwater resources. Along with this, rapid industrialization in emerging economies has led to an increase in the water pollution levels, which has resulted in the growing prevalence of waterborne diseases. This, in turn, is increasing the adoption of UV disinfection solutions for water purification. These solutions also offer various advantages, such as reduced maintenance requirements and lower operating costs, which is contributing their widespread utilization. The market is further driven by the enhanced focus toward environmental safety. The UV disinfection technology utilizes LED lights, which are highly energy-efficient and do not leave behind toxic residues. Consequently, these solutions are widely being preferred for various water and wastewater treatment applications. Furthermore, UV disinfection equipment can be customized to be employed in the healthcare sector as a measure to control the spread of hospital-acquired diseases. This, along with the increasing demand for physical disinfection equipment from the food and beverages, electronics and chemical industries, is expected to create numerous growth opportunities in the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global ultraviolet (UV) disinfection equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 17.4% during 2022-2027.
