Electrocoagulation Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


     Growth Drivers

  • Demand for Eco-Friendly Wastewater Treatment Methods Is Growing- Wastewater from a variety of industries is released, and it must be treated before being utilized again. One of the main problems that many economies face is the scarcity of water. Therefore, in order to recover the vast amounts of industrial wastewater produced by various businesses, it is necessary to develop industrial wastewater treatment systems that are safe, affordable, and environmentally sustainable. Globally, 380 billion cubic meters of municipal wastewater are produced annually. It is anticipated that wastewater output will rise by 24% by 2030 and 51% by 2050. Industrial wastewater poses a threat to the environment. Conventional wastewater treatment methods involve a blend of chemical, biological, and physical processes. Using the principles of electrochemistry, electrocoagulation is a relatively new and exciting technology for treating wastewater. The electrocoagulation market report projects that the next few years will see a boom in the electrocoagulation industry due to the technology's advantages, which include low sludge production, high removal efficiency, and easy operation.
  • Advancements in Electrode Materials- Continuous research & development efforts to enhance electrode designs and materials may result in electrocoagulation systems that are more robust and effective, creating new opportunities for market expansion. India's per-capita research and development expenditure climbed from PPP USD 29.2 in 2007–2008 to PPP USD 42.0 in 2020–21. Over time, both GDP and R&D spending have consistently increased in absolute terms.
  • Adoption of Strict Wastewater Treatment Regulations- Numerous industrial industries produce copious amounts of wastewater. As a result, governments everywhere have put strict laws into place to eliminate any dangerous material that might be in the water and endanger aquatic life, mankind as a whole, or the environment. Numerous regulatory organizations have made attempts to establish guidelines and rules for the treatment of wastewater and guarantee that the cleaned water is released into different bodies of water or utilized again for different purposes. Because of this, there is a need for affordable, effective water treatment methods that can properly remove dangerous materials from wastewater that is produced. The electrocoagulation market numbers are being further inflated by an increase in expenditure in research and development activities related to electrocoagulation for wastewater treatment.


  • High initial investment- Growth in the market may be hampered by the high initial cost of setting up electrocoagulation systems, particularly for small and medium-sized businesses.
  • The expansion of the electrocoagulation market may be impeded by the lack of qualified specialists needed for the operation and maintenance of electrocoagulation systems.
  • The lack of understanding among end users and their inclination towards conventional treatment procedures can impede the growth of the electrocoagulation industry, even with its advantages.

Electrocoagulation Segmentation

End-Use (Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals, Food & Beverages, Automotive, Oil & Gas, Textile, Paper, Municipal Wastewater)

The chemicals & pharmaceuticals segment in the electrocoagulation market is anticipated to hold the largest revenue share of about 32% during the forecast period. Wastewater from the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors is produced in massive quantities. Pharmaceutical effluents, which often contain a high concentration of antibiotics, chemicals, organics, and solid materials, have increased as a result of the pharmaceutical industry's growth. There have previously been some drug traces discovered in water. Both individuals and the surrounding ecosystem are at risk because of this. Due to insufficient removal during the wastewater treatment process, these medications frequently find their way into water. As a result, electrocoagulation systems are becoming more popular in the treatment of wastewater and water. This is driving the growth of the electrocoagulation market. According to this study, 359.4 billion m3 of wastewater are produced worldwide each year, of which 63% (or 225.6 billion m3 annually) are collected and 52% (188.1 billion m3 annually) are treated.

Type (Aluminium Electrodes, Iron Electrodes, Steel Electrodes, Copper Electrodes)

The electrocoagulation market was dominated by the aluminium electrodes type segment with about 40% share during the forecast period. The most popular electrode for electrocoagulation is aluminum, which effectively removes colors, organic materials, microplastics, and other materials. During the forecast period, there will likely be an increase in demand for aluminum electrodes used in electrocoagulation.
