Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market Size Report, 2024
Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market size was valued at over USD 3 billion in 2015. Stringent government regulation associated with landfills is anticipated to drive demand.
Strict government regulations regarding wastewater treatment and sludge, force operators to treat sludge volume produced by the industrial and residential areas which will help boost the demand of Sludge dewatering equipment market during the forecast period.
For instance, the EU legislation on waste stream provides certain specifications for the disposal of sludge which has to be met to help drive the Europe sludge dewatering market size. Owing to highly expensive and complexity in system designing, a skilled technician is required for equipment handling and operations and is therefore expected to be the restraint for the global sludge dewatering equipment market.
Global sludge dewatering equipment market applications include industrial and municipal sludge. Industrial sludge includes non-process waste such as cafeteria waste, packaging waste and process waste. The processing waste depends on type -of produces such as plastic waste, metal scraps etc. and mineral waste, obtained from mineral and mineral processing units. In 2014, industrial sludge application segment accounted for nearly 31% and municipal sludge application segment accounted for around 69%.
