BURNABY, British Columbia, January 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Increasing gap between water demand and supply, coupled with ground and surface water contamination is driving the Brazilian wastewater treatment plants market
Brazil accounts for about 18% water supply globally, but the distribution of water resources is highly uneven. North Brazil, with lower population concentration, has availability of about 70% of the country's water resources, while the southeast region has only 6% water resources and the region's population is much higher. This uneven distribution and increasing demand for water, especially from regions with scarce water resources, are augmenting the growth in wastewater treatment plants market in Brazil.
According to recently published report by TechSci Research "Brazil Wastewater Treatment Plants Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2018", bio-refining, mining, and paper & pulp industries to drive wastewater treatment plants market in Brazil. Sewage utility companies such as Sabesp, Sanepar, Copasa, Embasa and Cesan are the key customers for municipal wastewater treatment plant installers. These companies are expanding water and sewage coverage in order to enhance water facility for the Brazilian population and at the same time, creating market opportunities for the system installers.
Improper sewage facility is also one of the key challenges being faced by the country as about 65-70% untreated sewage is directly disposed into rivers. Brazil has large number of municipalities. The total number of municipalities stood at about 5,565 in 2011, with only 28% municipalities having implemented a municipal policy of sanitation and about 47.8% municipalities failing to have adequate control over the quality of water.
The TechSci report offers an insight into replacement of conventional clarifiers with Bio Mag, Co Mag and DAF (Dissolved Air Floatation) clarifiers, a driving factor that is contributing to the growth of wastewater treatment plants market in Brazil. In addition, production of bio-gas with the help of sludge discharged after wastewater treatment is gaining ground.
"In 2000, about 33.5% households in Brazil had access to public sewage, which is anticipated to rise about 65% by 2018. The anticipated expansion in the public sewage network would be on account of increasing investments by the government of Brazil to improve water & sewage facility in the country. Further, the Brazilian government has voiced plans to invest USD1.68 billion by 2014 towards development of water & sanitation facilities which would further drive the market growth," said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm.
