UV light is considered a reliable means of disinfection. It exposes contaminated water to radiation from UV light. The light enters an organism’s cell walls and disrupts its genetic material, rendering reproduction incapable. One of the key growth drivers of the global UV disinfection equipment market is the increasing government initiatives. 


Government Initiatives Propel Market Growth

Government laws and initiatives encourage the use of UV disinfection equipment. As per the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), UV disinfection is evaluated as the optimal solution for achieving the objectives of Cryptosporidium inactivation.

Furthermore, the EPA has published a guidance manual delineating the utilization of UV disinfection, encompassing information on dosage, implementation, operation, monitoring, and validation. Given that UV disinfection is a relatively recent method for disinfection, numerous organizations are actively engaged in testing, researching, and implementing UV systems. They subsequently share their findings with water treatment authorities, such as municipalities, to facilitate informed decisions regarding the adoption of UV disinfection systems. 

Notably, UV testing facilities have been established in Jonestown, NY, and Portland to assess the transmission efficiency of UV reactors, ranging from 70% to 98%, and their capacity to handle flow rates of up to 40 MGD.

UV Lamp: Dominating Component

UV-C, a wavelength of UV light known for its germicidal properties, is generated by UV lamps. Similar to fluorescent light bulbs, UV lamps typically contain a small mercury droplet, approximately the size of a pinhead, and can be recycled. The effective production of germicidal UV-C light by the lamp relies heavily on the presence of mercury. Within the ‘cold spot’ of the lamp, minuscule liquid mercury droplets accumulate, and when the temperature in that area reaches its peak, UV-C light is emitted.

Similar to standard light bulbs, all UV lamps utilize filaments to generate an electrical current, which in turn heats the mercury, causing it to evaporate within the lamp. The vaporized mercury plays a role in facilitating the formation of electrical arcs that emit UV-C light at varying intensities, thereby purifying water.

Asia-Pacific: Fastest-Growing Region

Many Asian nations necessitate significant investments in infrastructure to foster economic growth. This holds particularly true for mature economies like Australia, where an aging population calls for the development and enhancement of economic infrastructure. Additionally, there is a notable demand for social infrastructure, encompassing sectors such as healthcare and housing.

Projections indicate that, by 2020, approximately half of the worldwide construction expenditure is anticipated to originate from the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Within APAC, China, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, and Malaysia are poised to display the most promising growth potential.

The competitive rivalry is high, with significant structural pressure from declining margins and falling prices. Some of the leading companies in the market include Danaher Corporation, Germitec, Calgon Carbon Corporation, etc.
