In terms of revenue, the global ultrapure water market generated $7681.76 million in 2021, and is expected to reach $14603.66 million by 2030, growing at a 7.77% CAGR during the forecast period, 2022-2030. The market study has also analyzed the impact of COVID-19 on the global ultrapure water market qualitatively and quantitatively.

Ultrapure water is high-purity water with a total organic carbon (TOC) limit of 0.05 mg/l and a resistivity of 18-megohm-cm. Ultrapure water is extensively used globally in manufacturing and syntheses across sectors like pharmaceuticals, research labs, semiconductors, and power generation. The process is known as electro-deionization, similar to electro-dialysis but includes ion exchange resins, and is used to create ultrapure water. Electrodes are used to apply the electric field.

Key growth enablers of the global ultrapure water market are:

  • Applications and demand from the semiconductor sector
    • Large amounts of water are used in producing semiconductor devices for various tasks, such as wafer surface cleaning and equipment cooling.
    • The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) estimates that device fabrication uses 7 liters/cm2 per wafer. This means that a typical 200 mm wafer fabrication can use up to 3,000 m3 of ultrapure water daily while processing 20,000 wafers per month.
    • Over the past few years, the semiconductor market has shown steady growth. The key factor responsible for the growth is the advancement of technology.
  • Accelerating pharmaceutical industry demands

Key growth restraining factors are:

  • Limited natural water supply for manufacturing units
  • Stringent regulations
    • Many organizations, including AAMI, ANSI, NCCLS, CAP, ASTM, and USP, have strict standards for ultrapure water. Additionally, depending on the purity level, ISO 3696, NCCLS, and ASTM categorize ultrapure water into 3 different types.
    • The parameters for each organization are comparable (but not identical). Therefore, during the forecast period, the growth of the global ultrapure water market is anticipated to be constrained by such strict regulations.

Global Ultrapure Water Market | Top Trends

  • High adoption in the power generation industry
    • Ultrapure water is used in the power generation sector to create steam that powers turbines and serves other purposes. Turbine blades, stainless steel lines, steam circuits, and cooling systems are just a few examples of equipment that are resistant to corrosion and stress cracking when exposed to ultrapure water
  • Accelerating demand for cleanroom practices
    • Industries such as semiconductors, pharmaceuticals and power generation are some of the biggest end-users of ultrapure water. Many modern products manufactured and used in these industries are very sensitive to dust, vapors, and other airborne contaminants. This increases the applicability of ultrapure water in different industries to carry out cleanroom manufacturing.
  • Ultrapure water in the food & beverage industry
    • The hygiene standards for the food and beverage industry are always rising, especially regarding water quality. Brewers do this by distilling or deionizing their water to remove all compounds, then adding the desired minerals in the appropriate amounts.
  • Promising acquisitions in the global ultrapure water market
    • Companies are now expanding their operations in other regions by acquiring or merging smaller companies to gain their customer base, which benefits the key players acquiring the smaller companies.
