Sludge Dewatering Equipment Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook (U.S., Germany, UK, Italy, Russia, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Brazil, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, UAE, South Africa), Application Development Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2016 – 2024
Report ID: GMI736
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%.
Global sludge dewatering equipment market size by technology has been segmented into centrifuges, sludge drying bed, screw press, belt filter press, screw press and rotary press. Centrifuges and belt filter presses are the popular sludge dewatering technologies in industrial waste water treatment plants due to their cost efficiency and good operation.
Centrifuge is used to eliminate solid from liquid through centrifugal and sedimentation force. Its market is expected to grow with over 4% CAGR globally. High capacity, less area requirement, automatic operation and compatibility with all type of sludge are the major advantages where as high maintenance & operational costs and high capital costs are some of the highlighted drawbacks. Continuous bowl centrifuge is most commonly waste water treatment dewatering technique. Centrifuges produces around 25% to 35% solid sludge content by weight. Belt filter press is mainly used in industry for elimination of solid from water based mineral and organic slurries and sludge. High capacity, moderate energy consumption comparing with centrifuges, visual monitoring of drying process, moderate polyelectrolyte dosing are the advantages of belt press. High maintenance & operational cost and incompatibility with fatty and oily sludge are some of the disadvantages of belt press. It has the ability to dry sludge from 18% to 30% depending upon volume of sewage sludge.
Asia Pacific, led by China, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and Japan is expected to witness a significant growth in sludge dewatering equipment market during the forecast period. Rising volume of sludge from residential and commercial purpose leads to increased demand for sludge treatment.
Europe sludge dewatering equipment Market led by UK, France and Germany would witness a significant growth in the near future. Growing demand of sludge production and water treatment facility would stimulate growth. North America is expected to grow owing to escalating wastewater treatment facility and rising population responsible for the production of sludge volume.
Some of the major companies in the global sludge dewatering equipment market share are Oy Ekotuotanto Ab, Palmetto Water Solutions LLC, Alfa Laval Inc., Wright-Pierceand, Flo Trend Systems, Pipe & Plant Solutions Inc., Komline-Sanderson, Inc., Dewaco Ltd., Atara Equipment Ltd., Era Hydro- Biotech Energy Pvt. Ltd., Bilfinger Water Technologies, Kontek Ecology Systems Inc., Phoenix, Shosalowe Investment (Pty) Ltd and Fournier Industries Inc. and others.
