Ultra-violet (UV) disinfection is one of the most comprehensive, effective, reliable and the safest commercially available disinfection technology. UV light with a precise range of its wavelengths (between 200 and 300 nanometers), are found to be germicidal and capable of deactivating harmful microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria and protozoa. The properties of UV light, including environment friendly, highly effective and chemical-free, has contributed to the widespread adoption of UV as a physical disinfectant technology in various water and waste water treatment applications. Various harmful microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria and protozoa, after coming under direct exposure of specific wavelength range of UV light, are reduced and become incompetent of reproduction and infection. UV light is also useful in treatment of various pathogenic organisms, comprising those responsible for polio, cholera, typhoid, hepatitis, viral, bacterial, and other parasitic diseases. In addition, UV light is capable of destroying chemical contaminants, such as industrial solvents, and pesticides, through UV oxidation processes.
UV disinfection technique with low operating cost, easy operation and residue-free functioning are becoming more and more popular and replacing the chemical disinfection technique. The growing demand of physical disinfection technology from food and beverages, electronics, chemical and healthcare industries are providing new market opportunity for the UV disinfection industry.
Based on applications, the global UV disinfection market can be segmented into water UV disinfection equipment, air UV disinfection equipment, waste water UV disinfection equipment, food and beverages UV disinfection equipment, and surface UV disinfection equipment. The waste water segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecasted period.
Increasing water originated diseases and inefficiency of chlorine in treatment of harmful microorganism such as cryptosporidium is encouraging consumers to adopt effective and advance disinfection technique such as UV disinfection. Moreover, growing market of healthcare and chemical industries, particularly in Asia Pacific region, is boosting the UV disinfection market particularly in air disinfection and surface disinfection segments of the market. Furthermore UV disinfectant technology is cost effective in long run compared to other disinfection techniques such as chlorine and ozone.
