Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) Market Surpass $1.9 Billion By 2026 | CAGR 11.5%

Author: Acumen Research and Consulting

The international Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) market is expected to reach USD 1.9 billion by the end of 2026, this industry is expected to grow with 11.5% CAGR during the coming years. Rapid industrialisation and increasing water pollution is propelling the Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) market growth.

Stringent Government Norms to boost market growth

Due to the effect of harmful waste water and its content, currently there is increase in awareness about environment protection. To control the water quality, the organizations at international level are coming together to take remarkable initiative and prevent water quality degradations. For ensuring this, regulatory bodies monitoring the wastewater discharge and their limits across the world are implementing stringent policies, standards, and guidelines for operating entities such as industrial plants and municipal bodies. Through this norms, governments are forcing them to meet zero liquid discharge norms to restrain the degradation of water quality of their respective countries.

  • For instance, the EU Water Framework Directive regulates such standards for industries, municipalities, and others present in the European Union.
  • The Environment Protection Agency in the United States enforces the Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELGs) for controlling water quality

Such strict government regulations forces the industries and other entities to adopt the water quality controlling techniques such as Zero Liquid Discharge systems to maintain a treatment process and limit the wastage of water. Hence, such government regulations are expected to boost the demand for Zero Liquid Discharge systems over upcoming years.

Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) an advanced Water Treatment Approach

The zero liquid discharge systems is one of the advanced water treatment systems. The applications and benefits are irreplaceable as this system helps in achieving multiple outcomes to industries and other end users. The Zero Liquid Discharge system helps in effective handling of variations in waste contamination and flow, and allows volumes adjustments required in chemicals. This system also helps in recovery of around 95% of liquid waste for reuse. In addition, the Zero Liquid Discharge helps in retrieving valuable by-products from waste and treatment of waste. Such multiple all in one benefits of Zero Liquid Discharge system is expected accelerate the market growth over forecast period.
