Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) Market: About the Report

As time has passed, companies have been increasingly favoring chemical-free ways of treating ballast water, which is why physical treatment is gaining importance. Eco-friendliness is an important factor that market players will have to consider over the coming years, which will also offer increasing opportunities for market players.

Fact.MR’s report dives deep into the reasons as to why the ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) market is slated to surge ahead at an impressive rate over the next ten years. With both, regional and international trade, especially sea trade only set to increase as the years go by, demand for BWTS will see an uptick across regions.

Ballast Water Treatment Systems Market Overview

Ballast water treatment systems are used to maintain balance of the marine ecosystem by filtering and disinfecting ballast water. Several technologies are used in ballast water treatment systems to avoid polluting sea water.

Rising focus on preserving and protecting marine life and ecosystem is driving the expansion of the global ballast water treatment systems market size. Loading and unloading of ballast water can cause a threat to the environment and public health if not handled properly, with organisms transferred from one ecosystem to another.

To check potential harm to the seawater by foreign toxic species such as pathogens and other organisms, the International marine Organization (IMO) has imposed strict regulations for the same. These regulations and their strict enforcement are making owners install ballast water treatment systems on ships, which is propelling market growth further.

The global ballast water treatment systems market is projected to grow at an exemplary growth rate of around 10% over the forecast period of 2020-2030, according to a recent report by Fact.MR.

Ballast Water Treatment Systems Market Trends

Increasing Sea Trade Fueling Demand: Marine trade has witnessed multifold growth in the past few decades. Rising international trade through seaways is one of the key drivers of the ballast water treatment systems market. Marine transport is a cost-effective and efficient way of transportation for mass goods and raw materials.

Also, it offers great convenience as compared to other transport means, worldwide. Nearly 90% of world trade is carried out through seaways. This factor will aid the growth of the global ballast water treatment systems market over the long-term forecast period.

International Maritime Organization (IMO) Regulations Boosting Market Growth: Countries across the world have regulations in place to protect the marine environment. When it comes to international trade, it is difficult for foreign manufacturers to follow these guidelines, as their product portfolios are different. The United Nations (UN) is thus implementing standard regulatory guidelines that will be the same for all nations. This is expected to be a key factor in augmenting the growth of global BWTS market in the near future.

Rising Trade Activities in Developing Countries to Aid Growth: Increasing international trade in developing economies is expected to drive the ballast water treatment systems market over the next decade. Countries in Asia Pacific and Africa have been seeing a rise in trade activities. Industrial development in these emerging economies is fueling business growth in these regions.

Governments in these countries are trying to boost international trade by bringing in various favorable policies and agreements. These factors are resulting in increased demand for container vessels, cargo ships, and many others, which bodes well for the growth of the global ballast water treatment systems market.

The BWTS market in Asia Pacific is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2020-2030). With rise in international trade in the region, led by countries such as India and China, the region is anticipated to be the most lucrative ballast water treatment systems market over the next decade.

BWTS Market: Competitive Landscape

Players in the global ballast water treatment systems market are investing in research & development activities to come up with innovative additions to these systems. Also, mergers and acquisitions are a key focus of market players to gain an edge over the competition. Apart from this, companies are looking at partnerships and collaborations as a way to stay ahead of the competition.

However, technological advancements along with expansion strategies are expected to remain key strategies of players in the BWTS market over the forecast period.

  • For instance, The Hyde GUARDIAN-US BTWS has tested its new system as per IMO norms in the U.S. The new system has unique features such as automatic flow regulation, which ensures that the system is capable of managing changing water quality in order to achieve compliance.
  • Also, Hyde Marine has come up with an alarm that signals if the system is operating outside test boundaries. This helps the crew to initiate contingency measures for non-compliant waters, so that deballasting and cargo loading is not impacted.
