Global Chlorinators Market: Introduction
Chlorination, chloramines, ozone, and ultraviolet are the primary methods of disinfecting water. Water disinfection is necessary for domestic and industrial applications. Chlorine is appropriate as primary and secondary disinfectant. It is also effective in removing most of the microbial pathogens. Chlorinator is a system used to achieve disinfection of water through the chlorination process.
Apart from water disinfection, chlorinators are also employed to achieve functions such as bacteria and odor control, and algae and slime removal. In general chlorination process, chlorine gas is injected into water supply pipe at a pressure less than atmospheric.
The water is highly pressurized and passed through a venture orifice to create vacuum that draws chlorine into water steam. Sufficient mixing and contact time is necessary to ensure complete disinfection. Gas chlorinators and electro chlorinators are widely used chlorination methods across the globe.
Rise in demand for pure water and increase in in investments for the establishment of efficient water treatment units are driving the demand for chlorinators. Rise in establishment of public infrastructure of water supply, primarily in developing countries, and support of local and international organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) are anticipated to fuel the demand for chlorinators during the forecast period. However, high cost of chlorinators compared to conventional water disinfectors such as filters is estimated to hamper the global chlorinators market.
Global Chlorinators Market: Segmentation
The global chlorinators market can be segmented based on type, process, application, and region. In terms of type, the market can be bifurcated into gas chlorinators and electrolysis chlorinators. Gas chlorinators holds key share of global chlorinators market owing to its easy maintenance and popularity in wide range of applications such as swimming pool and water tank pumping systems.
However, the market share of electrolysis chlorinators is projected to increase at rapid pace. Electrolysis chlorinators are safer to operate than gas chlorinators, as they do not require storage of hazardous gas. They are eco-friendly to operate due to the absence of hazardous chemicals. These factors are anticipated to fuel the demand for electrolysis chlorinators during the forecast period.
Based on process, the global chlorinators market can be divided into batch type and continuous. In terms of application, the global chlorinators market can be segregated into domestic and commercial. The commercial segment can be further be split into hospitality industry, manufacturing industry, and health care industry. Rise in demand for drinking water owing to the ever-rising population is driving the domestic segment of the global chlorinators market.
Global Chlorinators Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of region, the global chlorinators market can be classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
North America is a key region of the chlorinators market, followed by Europe. Implementation of stringent regulations regarding water treatment plants is driving the demand for chlorinators in the region. However, the market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at significant pace during the forecast period. Increase in in infrastructure activities and growth in public and private investments are projected to fuel the demand for chlorinators in the region. High demand for clean water in residential and industrial applications is also positively impacting the global chlorinators market.
