Worldwide Ballast Water Treatment Systems Industry to 2027 - Strategic Recommendations for New Entrants -

February 5, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 5, 2021--

The “Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) - Global Market Outlook (2019-2027)” report has been added to’s offering.

According to the report, the Global Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) market accounted for $38.34 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $420.52 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 34.9% during the forecast period.


Some of the key factors propelling the market growth include growth in the size of shipping industry trade volume, rising government initiatives in line with the international maritime organization (IMO) regulations, increasing demand to optimize the utilization of resources, growing awareness about the benefits of water treatment and increasing demand for clean drinking water. However, the high cost of physical treatment systems and inclination for mechanical and chemical treatments are limiting the growth of the ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) market.

Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) is an emerging technology that is designed to eradicate and destroy microorganisms such as algae, bacteria, and zooplankton from ballast water. The purpose of BWTS is to minimize the transfer of non-indigenous harmful pathogens and aquatic organisms from one place to another through the ship’s ballast water system. Invasive marine species are a threat to the oceans and their impact to the environment is irreversible. The system consists of ballast water pipes, tanks, pumps, and related valve parts. Ballast water is mainly carried by the ships to maintain stability and seaworthiness, when the ships are not carrying cargo.
