Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) Market to Surge Ahead at 10% CAGR through 2030: Fact.MR

by Team Fact.MR

Emergence of low-cost, ecofriendly ballast water treatment systems is generating new market potential and opportunities, according to Fact.MR.  Rising environmental concerns are expected to propel ecofriendly systems across the world. Conservation of the marine ecosystem is becoming imperative, as pollution levels are rising across the globe in a multitude of ways. Hence, systems that can save the marine ecosystem from harmful microorganisms and pollutants are expected to be the most sought-after, fueling the growth of the ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) market.

Furthermore, governments and regulatory bodies across the world are bringing in regulatory measures and policies to ensure environmental safety and sustainability. For instance, the International Maritime organization (IMO) has issued guidelines to be followed by owners and manufacturers of water treatment systems to ensure minimal harm to the environment. Moreover, manufacturers are coming up with innovative technologies to develop equipment with compact designs to save space as well as ensure safety. Companies are also developing filter-less systems that do not need generators to operate, thus making them cost-efficient and environment-friendly.

Fact.MR predicts that the global ballast water treatment systems market will progress at an impressive CAGR of 10% over the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.
