The consultancy firm on Friday said that the waste water aeration systems market is in various stages of development across the world. Considered highly reliable technology, the aeration systems will see increased global uptake, due to the demand for wider connectivity to secondary wastewater treatment services in developing regions.

According to Frost & Sullivan, the global waste water aeration systems market earned revenues of USD 4.88 billion in 2011 and it is expected to touch USD 8.39 billion in 2020."The high energy intensity of aeration will encourage greater innovation and competitiveness in the market; while, it opens itself to the threat of alternative technologies that enable energy recovery," the firm said.

According to Frost & Sullivan, energy-efficient performance will, therefore, be a key consideration in equipment and technology selection. Other important selection indices will be price, technology and reliability.

In India, the pollution control board has now regulated the discharge of waste water, thereby creating opportunities for secondary waste water treatment systems."It is estimated that 60 percent of the industrial effluent and approximately 30-35 percent of the sewage undergoes treatment before discharge in India," the report said.
