The Water and Wastewater Treatment Technologies Market is expected to reach $128.78 billion, at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period 2022–2029. The growth of the Water and Wastewater Treatment Technologies market is mainly attributed to the rapidly diminishing freshwater resources and the growing need for water reclamation and reusable technologies. However, the lack of awareness of using water treatment techniques appropriately and the high cost of wastewater treatment technologies are hindering the growth of this market. In addition, the growing demand for energy-efficient and advanced water treatment technologies is expected to create significant growth opportunities for the players operating in this market. However, the aging and deterioration of existing water infrastructure is a major challenge to the growth of this market.
