SAN ANTONIO, May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Verify Markets has just released a market research report on the Ultraviolet (UV) Municipal Drinking Water Treatment Equipment Market for the United States.
In the past, there has been skepticism for alternative and advanced technologies, like UV. The receptivity of UV was relatively low as municipalities gravitated towards conventional chlorine treatment technology. However, due to the regulatory environment, the market is expected to show modest growth. Aging infrastructure is also adding to this circumstance.
"The Long Term Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2 rule) and the Disinfection/Disinfectant By-Products (D/DBP) rule are the major drivers for the UV municipal drinking water treatment equipment market," states a Verify Markets representative. "Conventional drinking water treatment plants are unable to remove specific contaminants like cryptosporidium, which makes UV a very attractive alternative."
The major market participants include Aquionics, Calgon Corporation, ITT Corporation and Trojan Technologies. There were less than 15 significant players participating in the market.
Equipment supplier quotes on market drivers and challenges, as well as market trends, are included in the report. There is a market share analysis and forecasts to 2017 with associated growth rate.
