COVID-19 Impact on Water Treatment System Market
While frequent hand washing and sanitization has been broadly considered as among the most efficient ways to avoid contagion of COVID-19, the UNICEF/WHO has estimated that 3 billion individuals globally lack the facilities to follow such norms. With the COVID-19 pandemic underlining the connection between clean water and public health, the bar for “clean” has been lifted.
Water treatment systems have been considered reliable and essential aspect of societies and a key contribution to public health during the global pandemic. Utilities’ initial response to the pandemic by optimizing disinfection doses has been the key step in protection and avoidance of both utility workers and the receiving water ecosystem and minimizes the potential contagion of the coronavirus.
Several companies are stepping up existing water treatment facilities in hard-hit areas that possibly contract COVID-19 infection from places including, community clinics, hospitals, and nursing homes.
“Preserving and reusing wastewater has not been among key priorities for businesses, or individuals. That being said, rising ecological consciousness and increasing regulatory pressure to lower the consumption of natural resources are influencing several industrial businesses to look for innovative ways to use - and reuse - water,” says analyst.
