The report studies the global water and waste water treatment market over the forecast period (2017-2023).

Water as an essential requirement for human survival, plays a crucial role in determining industrial growth. Water treatment can be defined as a process of making water acceptable for specific use such as drinking, irrigation, industrial supplies and river flow maintenance. Wastewater treatment is a process used to convert wastewater into an effluent that could be given back to the water cycle with minimum environmental issues and the water can be reused. Short-sighted water policies, poor water conservation and climatic changes have resulted in decline in water supply, hence creating a need for water and waste water treatment.
