Total demand for water treatment equipment in the US is expected to grow 6.0% yearly through 2017, with gains expected in every major market. Advances will be supported by increasing concerns about the health and environmental impacts of biological contaminants, chemicals, and disinfection byproducts in supply water and waste-water, and by more stringent manufacturing requirements for process water. Resource extraction, commercial and residential, and ballast water treatment are expected to be among the fastest growing markets for water treatment equipment, while the larger municipal and manufacturing markets are projected to expand at a healthy, near average rate.
