The market for sludge dewatering equipment is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8.9% from 2020 to 2027 and expected to reach the market value of around US$ 6,245.2 Mn by 2027.
Sludge dewatering is intended to reduce the weight and volume of the sludge by separating sludge into liquid and solid components. The process is intended for waste minimization and ultimately helps in reducing the disposal cost of transportation and bio-solid storage. Moreover, water reduction is the primary solution for reducing the sludge volume, before the treatment and disposal of sludge waste in the most economical manner. Basically, the process is not developed to treat the sludge or liquid, whereas it only separates the solid and liquid components for easy and cost-effective handling. Additionally, the various technologies for sludge dewatering include plate & frame and belt filter presses, centrifuging, and geomembranes and for carrying out these technologies, equipment is required that are termed as sludge dewatering equipment.
The stringent wastewater regulations coupled with the growing inclination towards a green economy is driving the market growth. The rising environmental & health concerns over wastewater and shifting trends toward the circular economy are boosting the market growth. The companies operating in the sludge dewatering equipment are developing advanced machines to facilitate the recycling of wastewater particularly to conserve the depleting environmental resources. Furthermore, the growing demand for sludge dewatering equipment in urban and industrial development activities is projected to create potential opportunities over the estimated period.
On the other hand, the high cost associated with the capital and operational & maintenance (O&M) cost is likely to hamper the growth over the forecast period from 2020 to 2027.
Regional Instance of Global Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market
Europe held the maximum share in the Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market
In 2019, Europe registered maximum revenue share in the sludge dewatering equipment market on account of its major economies including the U.K., Germany, France, and Spain. The major focus towards sustainable growth by the government as well as private organizations is primarily supporting the regional market value. Additionally, the presence of major players in the region including Alfa Laval (Sweden) and Aqseptence Group (Germany) among others are further contributing to the regional market value. Furthermore, the continuous involvement of regional and major players in the region for providing more cost-efficient and effective solutions in the market is supporting the growth. For instance, AMCON Europe along with Atana Ltd. is implementing the solution to dewater the digestate coming from the anaerobic digestion process. This is happening with the help of AMCON’s VOLUTE in a way that is safe enough to turn the spent wash into animal feed. Moreover, VOLUTE is selected mainly due to its low operation cost, easy maintenance, and customized engineering to dewater the sludge stably.
Asia Pacific is projected to experience fastest growth over the forecast period from 2020 to 2027
