The Zero Liquid Discharge Market is expected to reach $11.7 billion by 2030 from an estimated $6.4 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period (2023–2030). The growth of the zero liquid discharge market is driven by the need to meet wastewater treatment regulations, a lack of available water and wastewater disposal options, and the scarcity of freshwater sources. However, high installation, maintenance, operating costs, and intensive energy consumption restrain the growth of this market. The recovery of valuable resources and growing demand for energy-efficient and advanced water treatment solutions are expected to create market growth opportunities. However, upgrading and repairing aging water infrastructure is a major challenge for the zero liquid discharge market.
This study broadly segments the zero liquid discharge market by process, application, and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the country and regional-level markets.
