Announcing the launch of wastewater pumps with pride, Mr.G.Soundararajan, Vice Chairman - C.R.I. Group said, “The world pump market estimated 42 billion USD, in which wastewater pump market is valued at 9 billion USD. Municipal wastewater plants are the major users, contributing to nearly 23% of the end-user market.The other major users are Industries like Food & Beverages, sugar, textile, paint, Tannery, paper & pulp, chemical, pharmaceutical and process industries.The Asia region is considered a key growth market, with China and India topping the list”.
The Indian raw and wastewater market is estimated around INR 2000 Crores.The Indian wastewater market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12% during 2016-2021. Rapid urbanisation, Water scarcity, Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) norms, Industrialisation are the demand drivers that contribute to the market demand. Swachh Bharat mission, smart cities, National River Conservation Plan (NRCP) and Clean River Ganga Mission will further drive the Municipal wastewater treatment industry over the coming years.
As per the latest Ministry of Environment communication, Currently 62,000 MLD of wastewater is generated in Urban area of India while the capacity for treating wastewater stands at a mere 23,000 MLD.
Untreated sewage & industrial effluents pollute the surface and ground water which is the main source of drinking water, leading to public health concerns. The per capita water supply currently stands at 188.73 litres/day. A massive 73% of this becomes waste water, demonstrating the seriousness of the waste water problem. India ranks an alarming III rd position in the list of most water polluted countries based on the deteriorating quality of water ranking.
By the year 2030, water demand is expected to grow to 1.5 trillion Cu.m.,with supply at about 740 billion Cu.m,leading to a whopping 50% shortage in India.In this scenario, waste water recycle and reuse is a more economical measure compared to any other, thus increasing the demand for waste water pumps and treatment systems. According to C.R.I., weak regulatory enforcements and lack of public awareness seem to be the industry restraints. The rapid growth of urban population is creating huge pressure on existing water and waste water infrastructure.
Mr. G. Soundararajan further added, ”C.R.I. with its 7 foreign subsidiary companies, 32 branches in India and the strong distribution network available in 120 countries will greatly help to market these products for the growing global demand. Further,the reputation of being a well- recognised brand amongst MEP (Mechanical Electrical & Plumbing) consultants, STP & ETP (Sewage Treatment Plant and Effluent Treatment Plant), EPC (Engineering Procurement & Construction) companies, Industrial consultants and contractors with over five-decades of service to the fluid industry, will help us achieve our targets and become a prominent player in wastewater pump industry too”.
Currently C.R.I. caters on multiple segments such as mining, oil & gas, power & process industries, pharma, food & beverage, HVAC, fire fighting, other Industrial applications, irrigation, buildings and community water supply. Being ready every step of the way and meeting every pumping need before it arises is C.R.I. Pumps with its diversified product portfolio.Addition of this, wastewater range to an already extensive product portfolio is proof of our incessant focus on becoming a quality provider for all fluid management needs.
