UV Disinfection Equipment Industry: EPA Regulations and Government Initiatives Rising Its Market
Ultraviolet or UV disinfection equipment are devices used to cure and prevent water contamination. The UV disinfection equipment market is giving tough competition to the chlorine-based disinfection market owing to advantages such as residue-free functioning, low operating cost, and easy operation. The global market for UV disinfection equipment had reached a value of US$993.4 million in 2012. It is anticipated that the market will register a compound annual growth rate of 14.1% during 2013 to 2019, and reach US$2.5 billion by 2019. Government schemes for providing clean drinking water to people are adding to the scope of the global UV disinfection equipment industry. Additionally, the rapid development of medical and healthcare sectors and chemical industries provides ample opportunities for the air and surface segments of the UV disinfection equipment market.
UV Disinfection Equipment Market Description – http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/ultraviolet-disinfection-equipment.html
In many economies, the combination of UV disinfection equipment and ozone is being employed to form multiple barriers for cryptosporidium, an ailment that causes diarrhea and gastrointestinal illness, and Giardia, a protozoan parasite causing Giardiasis. The average cost to minimize the effectiveness of cryptosporidium by ozone is US$8.1 million, whereas this cost comes up to US$4.6 million for the combination of ozone and UV disinfection equipment.
One of the regulations imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency associated with the drinking water treatment is Long Term 2 Surface Water Treatment Rule, wherein all public water systems in the U.S. that utilize ground water under the direct pressure of surface water are needed to decrease the levels of cryptosporidium in the source water by 2-logs, that is by 99%. The cryptosporidium microorganisms are anti-chlorine, which provides an opportunity for ozonation, microfiltration and UV disinfection.
The yearly cost for proper functioning and maintenance of water disinfection systems of ozone is US$460,000, whereas the annual cost in case of a disinfection system that includes a combination of ozone and UV disinfection equipment is US$60,000. Chlorine takes around 15 to 20 minutes to treat the water stored in the contact tank, while UV disinfection equipment takes only 6 to 10 seconds. As UV disinfection equipment are cost-effective, this technique is attracting the focuses of users, which is resulting in the increased market demand.
