The global ultraviolet (UV) lamps market stood at around US$ 360.6 Mn in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.2% from 2022 to 2032. The market is set to reach a valuation of US$ 1,123.7 Mn by 2032. Ultraviolet (UV) mercury lamps currently account for more than 67.3% of the share in the global ultraviolet (UV) lamps market.
In terms of effectiveness, operating costs, and environmental impact, ultraviolet technology is more cost-effective than other disinfectant technologies like ozonation and chlorination processes. The global implementation of strict rules and regulations governing water and wastewater treatment facilities is advancing the market for ultraviolet (UV) lamps due to growing concerns about public safety and environmental issues. According to FMI, the market for ultraviolet (UV) lamps is anticipated to account for close to 2% of the world market for water and wastewater treatment equipment in 2022.
The market for ultraviolet (UV) lamps expanded at a 7.8% CAGR from 2017 to 2021, and it is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 11.2% from 2022 to 2032. The installation of ultraviolet systems in water and wastewater treatment plants and facilities is a focus for many municipalities around the world.
For instance, in Pinggu, China, a water treatment facility installed UV disinfection equipment in 2017 to supplement the chlorination procedure for the treatment of water. In today’s world, a lot of water treatment systems use ultraviolet lamps. For instance, the Netherlands treats tens of thousands of cubic liters of drinking water each hour to get pesticides out of it. The largest wastewater treatment facility in the world is also run by the Orange County Water District in the United States.
China is expected to witness a CAGR of 14.7% between 2022 to 2032. The country has been promoting environmental protection and industrial development in recent years. A succession of policies and regulations, such as the Energy Conservation Law of the People’s Republic of China to accelerate the development of energy-saving and safe products, as well as to protect the environment, is driving the market in China. At the same time, the promotion of safety and eco-friendly products is creating a high demand for ultraviolet lights in the country.
The ultraviolet mercury lamp segment is projected to create an absolute dollar opportunity of more than US$ 496.9 Mn between 2022 and 2032 in the global ultraviolet(UV) lamps market. The segment is set to account for over 67.4% of the global ultraviolet(UV) lamps market share, followed by the UV LEDs segment with over 33.6%.
