The biological wastewater treatment market size is estimated to be USD 8.7 billion in 2020 and projected to reach USD 11.1 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2020 to 2025. Stringent regulations regarding the disposal of wastewater into the environment or for reuse, aging infrastructure, water scarcity reusability of wastewater, rapidly growing population and industrialization are major drivers responsible for the growth of the biological wastewater treatment market.
Major companies operating in the biological wastewater treatment industry include Veolia (France), Suez Water Technologies Solutions (France), Evoqua Water Technologies LLC (US), Aquatech International (US), and Xylem Inc. (US).

Veolia (France) is one of the leading players in the biological wastewater treatment market and has been adopting inorganic organic strategies to sustain its market position. For instance, in 2018, Veolia signed a contract with the government of Paris for wastewater and urban stormwater management throughout the area covered by the Métropole (except Martignas-sur-Jalle). The contract covers the management of 6 wastewater treatment plants with a total capacity of 1,156,400 population equivalent, with 4,200 km of wastewater and urban stormwater networks for 275,000 users. In 2016, Saudi Aramco, a state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia chose Veolia to design and deliver a wastewater treatment plant for the Jazan refinery and terminal. The wastewater treatment plant designed and delivered by Veolia will provide biological treatment (1,000 m3 / h), oily water treatment, and metal removal (550 m3 / h) for the complex power plant, with a capacity of 4,000 MW. Saudi Aramco will also use several of its advanced patented technologies in these treatments.
Omya AG (Switzerland) is another major company in the biological wastewater treatment market. It has been adopting organic and inorganic strategies to sustain its position in the market. For instance, in 2019, SYVAB, a local authority that operates a large wastewater treatment plant in the suburbs of Stockholm, awarded a contract to Suez for a major MBR retrofit. SYVAB selected SUEZ’s LEAPmbr system, with ZeeWeed technology, which has earned a superior reputation in large industrial and municipal plants, for its compact design and high energy efficiency. Once commissioned, the plant will be able to treat a maximum flow rate of incoming wastewater of 240 MLD (63.4 MGD), with an option of supplementing to 312 MLD (82.4 MGD). It will also include more than 240 ZW500D LEAPmbr cassettes.
