The global Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) market is projected to hit the value of nearly USD 1.9 billion by 2026. The Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) market is anticipated to register CAGR of 11.5% over upcoming years.
The global zero liquid discharge market growth is majorly driven by the rising contamination of water utilities due to disposal of brine concentrates. In addition, the growing demand from the emerging economies backed by changing environmental conditions is also expected to fuel the demand for zero liquid discharge.
The rise in water consumption in industrial, residential, agricultural, and other areas is leading to the significant consumption of water resources and simultaneously generation of waste water and contaminated water in large amount. Also, the fact that fresh water presence is very less almost 3% of total water present on the earth surface and this makes it one of the biggest challenge in front of human kind to retain the present resource and achieve sustainable growth for future generation. In consideration with above mentioned factors, the waste water treatment and industrial waste water recycling is becoming one of the only options left and this process is implemented using the systems such as zero liquid discharge.
The zero liquid discharge is a wastewater treatment process and it’s a combination of multiple processes including fractional electrode ionization, reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, and evaporation & crystallization. Using zero liquid discharge process, recycling and purification of waste water is performed to significant extent. Approximately over 95% of water is reusable in nature when it is purified using zero liquid discharge method. Also, due evolution in the wastewater treatment process from past few years, this system has witnessed significant advancements in its functionalities and this has ultimately resulted into the availability of more reliable and efficient water treatment systems for different end user industries. The governments of different nations are forcing them to process wastewater to eliminate the toxins, contamination, and clear the water content to significant extent to control the waste of fresh water and maintain an environmental balance. The above mentioned parameters are expected to fuel the demand for zero liquid discharge market growth.
