However, as inoculation procedures accelerate, manufacturers are optimistic of a revival as on-site business operations would resume, restoring the demand-supply equilibrium in forthcoming years. Going by this trend, growth forecast has been revised to be valued at US$ 4.1 Bn by 2030.

Stringent Environmental Regulations

As urbanization accelerates, industrial development is also flourishing. Burgeoning international trade has facilitated cross-border industrial progress, leading to the establishment of numerous manufacturing units across various verticals. Unfortunately, this has also compounded environmental degradation, with debilitating impacts on the nature.

A key challenge arising out of industrial development is contamination of freshwater bodies and ecosystems. According to UN Water, availability of safe and consistent water supply is inextricably linked to wastewater management. High quantities of sewage and chemicals have severely degraded water quality across the world.

Governments are imposing strict emission regulation standards. The US Environmental Protection Agency’s Effluent Guidelines, Europe’s Best Available Techniques and the Ministry of Environment and Forests’ Effluent Standards in India are landmark achievements in controlling effluent discharge. Such developments are bound to enhance vacuum evaporators adoption throughout the forecast period.

Growing Water Scarcity

According to the World Health Organization, over 2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water services, while over 50% of the global population are unable to access safe sanitation services. Moreover, 80% of wastewater flows back into the ecosystem sans treatment.

Consequently, there is a massive global water scarcity problem. Most of it is an end-product of discharging contaminated water laden with harmful chemicals into the environment. Hence, governments are urging chemical manufacturing units to incorporate better effluent treatment mechanisms.

Therefore, industries are investing in vacuum evaporation systems. Vacuum evaporation is one of the most convenient and efficient techniques for treating aqueous effluents by transforming waste effluents into two streams, one of concentrated waste and another of high quality water.
