Water Quality and Scarcity -- Challenges and Opportunities for the Global Food and Beverage Industry
LONDON, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Complimentary analyst briefing with Frost & Sullivan will highlight key global trends impacting food and beverage water and wastewater treatment market
Due to the growing global concern about water quality and scarcity, reduction of industrial water footprint is emerging as competitive tool for food and beverage manufacturers. Modern treatment solutions can help food and beverage companies mitigate water risks and turn it into economical and competitive advantage.
According to Frost & Sullivan, increasing focus to reduce water footprint will drive global food and beverage water and wastewater treatment market that is expected to reach approximately USD Five Billion by 2020.
On this subject Frost & Sullivan is organizing a complimentary online conference with expert Paulina Szyplinska, Water and Wastewater Research Analyst. The briefing - that will take place on Tuesday, 3rd April 2012, at 3 pm BST - will highlight key global trends impacting food and beverage water and wastewater treatment market. It will also present the prospects of food and beverage water and wastewater solutions and services until 2020 with forecast of market-specific technologies, regional market hotspots and trends linked to end-user segments.
"Given the significant volume of water required for food and beverage production, combined with growing population and increasing water stress, there is a vast need to implement sustainable water management practices," explains Ms. Paulina Szyplinska. "Increasing water stress and quality problems as well as climate-related impact are expected to be a major risk associated with food and beverage businesses in the years ahead. Therefore, sustainable solutions in food and beverage industry have never been more important."
Advanced treatment technologies, including modern membrane and disinfection systems, are projected to be widely applied in theÂ food and beverage industry, bringing benefits of reduced water and energy consumption, improved water quality and plant operational efficiency. Additionally, rising concerns over global water protection and increasingly stringent legislative regulations are expected to increase investment into tertiary, advanced and sludge treatment equipment.
Increasing focus of food and beverage companies on water efficiency creates high investment potential with significant opportunities for companies in a number of segments with customers increasingly seeking comprehensive solution providers in this highly competitive market.
With more stringent requirements regarding treatment standards, outsourcing of water-related services is also expected to become a significant trend in the market with customers increasingly responding to wider service options.
This briefing will benefit several stakeholders in the value chain of the water and wastewater sector, including water and wastewater treatment equipment providers, design and engineering as well as operation and maintenance service providers for all water-related food and beverage installations.
