Moving Bed Bioreactor (MBBR): A Global Strategic Business Report

Moving bed bioreactor systems (MBBR) market hinges on robust development foundations and has been demonstrating a strong growth rate over the past few years. Since the first commercial deployment in the 1980's, MBBR concept progressed from being a nascent technology to a sophisticated solution that can be applied by several global leading water and wastewater systems providers. MBBR concept already enjoys success and prominence as an economically attractive and sustainable system with nearly 1000 deployment references all over the world.

Robust growth witnessed by the technology in Europe and the Americas potentially creates additional opportunities for MBBR technology in terms of time-to-market and rapid conversion of prospective references into new projects. Developing markets including Asia-Pacific, Central European countries, Latin America including Brazil, the Middle East, and Africa are expected to demonstrate higher growth in MBBR deployments. In addition, factors such as environmental issues, shortage of water, and escalating water costs are encouraging the water re-use, creating lucrative opportunities across various regions such as the US, Southern Europe, the Middle East, Australia, among others.

Turmoil in the global economy during 2008 and 2009 significantly impacted the new treatment project installations in various parts of the world. Impact of the recession on new MBBR installations stood significantly higher in matured markets such as the US and Europe. The scenario remained weak in industrial as well as municipal markets. However, the demand for MBBR technology stood more or less robust for infrastructure upgrading projects.

The US represents the largest regional market for MBBR worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Moving Bed Bioreactor. Deployment of MBBR systems is well developed in municipal as well as industrial markets in the US. The market is expected to increase further in the region with implementation of large municipal plant upgrades. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market for MBBR, with market projected to grow at a compounded annual rate of more than 28% over the analysis period.

Municipal markets constitute the largest as well as fastest growing end-use segment of MBBR. Municipal markets are highly regulated and are governed by rigid legislations. Generally, adequate capital funding and environmental legislations drive investments in water and wastewater treatment projects in municipal markets. In the past, legislations such as Water Framework Directive in the EU and the Clean Water Act in the US encouraged the implementation of several treatment plants in respective regions. Revenues for the MBBR market in municipal applications are projected to register a CAGR of 26% over the analysis period. Pulp and Paper represents the second major end-use segment.

Water and wastewater management is gaining prominence in industrial markets as a vital component in numerous processes. Several considerations and issues such as compliance with environmental legislation, quality, cost, and security of supply are impacting the implementation of treatment plants at industrial level. Sectors including pulp and paper, food and beverages, packaging, energy, petrochemical, and pharmaceuticals represent potential growth drivers for treatment plants. These sectors require high-quality processed water and usually deploy water-recycling projects for the re-use of water. In addition, defense and marine sectors also extend the market with additional opportunities.

Major players profiled in the report include Applied Water Solutions Inc., Aquapoint Inc., AqWise® - Wise Water Technologies Ltd., Biowater Technology A/S, Degremont Technologies Ltd., Headworks® Inc., Krofta Engineering Limited, Siemens Water Technologies, Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, Water Treatment Group, Wock-Oliver Inc., and World Water Works Inc.
