Visiongain’s new report The Global Wastewater Treatment to Energy (WWTtE) Market Analysis : Forecasts for CAPEX, OPEX, and by End Use (Power, Heat, Biomethane) indicates that the wastewater treatment to energy market will see total expenditure of $486.1m in 2016.
Wastewater treatment to energy (WWTtE) facilities will continue to receive high levels of investment over the next ten years. This is reflective of the untapped energy resource found in wastewater and the cost-effective way to run a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). This report details the levels of investment in the global market, subdivided by regions, capital and operational expenditure and project type. Through extensive research and discussions with experts in the industry, visiongain has identified a series of market trends that will impact the WWTtE market over the coming decade.
The lead analyst of the report commented that: “As countries take actions to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, the market is pursuing energy neutral strategies to increase the energy autonomy of the wastewater industry. The key component of energy efficiency schemes has been the utilisation of the biogas generated in anaerobic digestion to generate heat, power or biomethane for injection into the grid or use as a vehicle fuel.
Availability of finance, projects and the investment risk aversion of WWTPs has limited the rapid growth of the industry. However, national renewable energy support mechanisms and optimisation of the technology have driven stable investment. Visiongain anticipates that Europe and North America will see sustained levels of high investment over the forecast period. Increasingly stringent environmental regulations in emerging economies are widening the scope of the market but will not significantly impact the global market over the next decade.”
The report provides CAPEX and OPEX forecasts for four regional markets (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World) and the ten leading national markets (US, Canada, Australia, South Korea, Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and UK) for 2016-2026, as well as breaking up CAPEX and OPEX into heat, power and biomethane submarkets for each regional and national market. The report also provides forecasts for the number of WWTtE facilities added each year (2016-2026) for each national and regional market including breakdowns for the heat, power and biomethane submarkets.
The report also includes profiles of ten leading global WWTtE companies. The transcripts of interviews with Clarke Energy, WELTEC Biopower, FuelCell Energy, Equilibrium Capital, Scandinavian Biogas, Veolia Water Technology and Nijhuis Water Technology provide expert insight alongside visiongain’s forecasts and analysis.
The Global Wastewater Treatment to Energy Market 2016-2026 report will be of value to anyone who wants to better understand the market and its dynamics. It is essential reading for businesses already involved in the wastewater treatment to energy market, or for those wishing to enter this sector in the future.

Visiongain expects that various public support mechanisms will remain the principal driver throughout the forecast period. Estimates for the cost of CCS range between research papers as well as between capture technologies and plant characteristics.
02 October 2020
Supply gap due to production halt brought about by COVID-19 pandemic is expected restrict sales growth. However, the rising demand for coal tar products from the healthcare sector is expected to stabilize market growth during the forecast period.
25 September 2020
Increasing raw material prices is expected to hinder market growth. Furthermore, short term demand drops from the industrial segment due to COVID-19 lockdowns is expected to decline circuit breaker sales.
