Zero Liquid Discharge Market Eyes Opportunities With Rising Concerns About Effluents in Ground and Sea Water

Water is a scant asset with relentless urbanization and globalization. Industries such as power, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals and petrochemicals produce a huge volume of wastewater, which contain strong waste, natural waste, harmful, and non-toxic chemicals. As these are released into the natural water bodies, over a period of time, toxic wastewater has led to disastrous impact on flora, fauna, and climate changes.

As legislatures formulate to fight the disastrous changes, it is expected to open up opportunities for zero liquid discharge (ZLD). According to Fairfield Market Research, the global zero liquid discharge market is expected to be worth US$1,639.3 Mn by 2026, up from US$841.4 Mn in 2020.

Players in the zero liquid discharge market treat and recycle wastewater, leaving zero discharge of water at the end of the treatment cycle. Thus, no liquid waste leaves the facility. Zero liquid discharge is a leading wastewater treatment method, which includes reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, crystallization/evaporation, and fractional electrode ionization. This engineering method is understood as groundbreaking one as it recovers all the water and reduces contaminants into solid waste, giving wastewater treatment a meaning.

Strict Government Regulation for Wastewater Treatment to Sprint Growth by 2026

The critical driver for zero liquid discharge (ZLD) is the soaring concern about the effect of wastewater release on the water bodies and climate. This has turned the attention of majority of manufacturing industries on ZLD solutions for their wastewater as it also means solids can be sold or reused. For instance, salt by product of the last phase of ZLD, which can be utilized by the textile industry.

Regulatory bodies, across countries, limit wastewater discharge. As the grip of rules gets tighter around industries and manufacturing units to meet zero liquid discharge norms, the market is expected to be of an economic interest. For instance, ZLD mandates set by the EU Water Framework Directive and the Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELGs) set by the Environment Protection Agency in the US (EPA) have created a credible platform for the market to prove its value to its end users.

However, on the flipside, the COVID-19 pandemic has derailed few zero liquid projects and has hampered the overall growth of the market in 2020. However, post 2021, the market is expected to witnessed promising growth through new orders intake along with backlog orders.

Energy & Power Segment Show Accelerated Growth in Zero Liquid Discharge Market

In terms of end users, the energy & power segment dominated and constituted 44.6% share of the global zero liquid discharge (ZLD) market in 2020. The energy & power segment includes oil & gas exploration and production companies, refineries, and power plants. Thermal power plants are major sources of wastewater generation in the energy & power industry. Refineries are major water polluters due to their nature of operations and type of products processed in their vicinity.  Analysts at Fairfield Market Research predict that this will translate to higher uptake of ZLD solutions across this segment during the forecast period.

In terms of CAGR, energy & power is anticipated to be a highly attractive segment of the zero liquid discharge market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the chemicals & petrochemicals, food & beverages, and textile segments are estimated to be moderately attractive during the forecast period

Asia Pacific to Dominate as India and China Look at Investments in Better Wastewater Management

In 2020, Asia Pacific dominated the global zero liquid discharge (ZLD) market and constituted 42.7%. Furthermore, in terms of CAGR, Asia Pacific is expected to witness a surge in demand for zero liquid discharge plants. Growing water security-based investments in China and India is expected add new investments in water treatment plants across Asia Pacific. Governments of these countries are increasingly particular about industries setting up ZLD systems for wastewater treatment, which is a strong factor driving zero liquid discharge market growth in Asia Pacific.

In March 2022, UFlex Chemicals introduced zero liquid discharge technology at its Noida, India facility for water & environmental protection. SUEZ has also won contract for zero liquid discharge for one of India’s leading companies in agribusiness and food sector

From demand side, both North America and Europe are matured markets as they have had an established framework of strict environmental laws and regulations towards curbing water pollution. The U.S. has more than 70 ZLD plants with total combined capacity of approximately 20,000 GPM. These plants treat wastewater from power plants. The treated wastewater is used for non-potable applications across the country.

In Middle East & Africa, GCC countries possesses various oil & gas reserves, which are been explored. However, this results in water pollution. Countries in GCC have less reserves of water. Therefore, industries in the sub-region are implementing ZLD in order to recycle and reuse the wastewater. The Middle East & Africa and Latin America are also expected to offer lucrative opportunities for zero liquid discharge market during the forecast period.

Zero Liquid Discharge Market: Competitive Landscape

Key players involved in zero liquid discharge market include Veolia, GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft, SEUZ, Thermax Global, ALFA LAVAL, Praj Industries, Aquatech International LLC, ENCON Evaporators, AQUARION AG, 3V Green Eagle S.p.A., Oasys Water, and Kelvin Water Technologies Pvt. Ltd. On February 2022, SAIL RSP signed contract with Arvind Envisol under zero liquid discharge project. As per the contract, a water treatment system will be set up at an expenditure of US$ 18.3 Mn to treat 1800 CUM of waste-water per hour

Recently in April 2021, Praj Industries has bagged an order from Godavari Biorefineries Ltd (GBL, Karnataka, India) to set up a syrup-based ethanol plant with the largest capacity in India. As a part of this project, the for will expand its existing ethanol manufacturing capacity of GBL to 600 kilo litres per day, using sugarcane syrup. The expansion capacity at GBL will continue to be a zero liquid discharge facility.

Our Research Methodology

Under uncertainty, traditional approaches to strategic planning can be downright dangerous. True ambiguity is no basis to forecast the future – degree of risk, the magnitude of circumstances, conditions and consequences are not known or unpredictable. To avoid dangerous binary views of uncertainty; strategic posture, moves and actions through market research is the best bet.
