The standard of water resources directly impacts how people live their lives. Large water bodies in both urban and rural areas frequently receive contaminated water discharge due to environmental deterioration and extensive industrialization. Water becomes contaminated as a result, endangering human life. As a result, it is crucial to implement systems for monitoring water quality in order to assess it.

The rise in industrialization-related water pollution, the surge in the prevalence of waterborne diseases, and the rise in government regulations are the main growth factors for the market for water quality monitoring systems. To analyze the water quality, new sensors have been developed. These include dissolved oxygen sensors, turbidity sensors, conductivity sensors, pH sensors, chlorine sensors, ORP sensors, and temperature sensors.

The water distribution system is monitored by Online Water Quality Monitoring (OWQM) sensors, along with other analytical tools. During the forecast period, it is anticipated that the adoption of new technologies and creative techniques will increase demand for and popularity of water quality monitoring systems. One of the key market drivers is the increasing pollution that is negatively affecting the quality of drinking water.

Storms, droughts, and floods have become more common as a result of climatic changes brought on by rising pollution. Utility repair and retrofitting projects are consequently slowed down or put off. In such cases, utilities should accommodate end-user needs. As a result, numerous utilities are implementing systems for monitoring water quality.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Due to lockdown procedures, a lack of labor, and supply chain disruption, production facilities for pipeline monitoring systems were either completely or partially stopped. As a result of this, the production of water monitoring systems would be affected. Due to the suspension of regular business operations in these sectors during the lockdown, demand from end users for things like petroleum, water, and wastewater, and other goods & services significantly decreased.

Market Growth Factors

Strict Water Quality Standards Testing For A Wide Range Of Applications

Strict quality testing guidelines and parameters for water utilization are being pursued by numerous international organizations, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), European Drinking Water Directive, Australian Drinking Water Guidelines, and China's GB3838-2002, among others. Countries that have not adopted these standards adhere to the World Health Organization's recommendations (WHO). All businesses & other end users must abide by these rules, and as part of that compliance, they must use water quality testing tools to determine the water's quality.

Increasing Need For Treatment Of Wastewater

With rising manufacturing activity, water waste has become a significant issue in both developed and developing nations. In order to conserve water and natural resources, numerous governments and non-governmental organizations are making great efforts. Worldwide, a large number of people consume water that is tainted with micro-organisms, which can lead to diseases like cholera, typhoid, dysentery, and polio, among others.

Market Restraining Factors

Monitoring Systems Are Generally Expensive

The initial purchase price, operational costs, which include the cost of consumables and replacement parts, and maintenance fees are all included in the ownership costs of water quality monitoring systems. Standard chemical solutions and reagent preparation involve consumable costs. In addition, a significant portion of the equipment's overall cost goes toward analyzer maintenance. The management of spare parts inventories and in-plant repairs are the next-largest components of instrument cost of ownership after calibration.

Component Outlook

Based on component, the water quality monitoring system market is segmented into pH sensors, DO sensors, temperature sensors, turbidity sensors and others. The DO sensors segment acquired a significant revenue share in the water quality monitoring systems market in 2021. DO sensors are utilized to measure dissolved oxygen concentration in water based on the quenching of luminescence in the presence of oxygen. The DO sensors can measure either the intensity or the lifetime of the luminescence as oxygen it affects both.

Application Outlook

On the basis of application, the water quality monitoring system market is fragmented into residential, commercial, industrial and utility. The industrial segment covered a substantial revenue share in the water quality monitoring system market in 2021. Different types of analyzers are utilized for efficient wastewater treatment monitoring in a variety of industries, including oil & gas and chemicals. Additionally, industrial wastewater must undergo pretreatment before being disposed of directly into sewage treatment facilities for the general public.
