Market Dynamics
+ Driver: Increasing environmental regulations
Nations have enforced strict norms against polluting the naturally occurring water bodies and illegal discharge of wastewater. In countries such as China, which were severely impacted by air pollution, special laws have been implemented to protect it from the harmful impact of wastewater discharge.

+ Restraints: High cost of wastewater treatment technologies
Wastewater is systematically treated in three stages, primary, secondary, and tertiary treatment. Wastewater treatments need specific skills and expertise. These processes are highly capital intensive. For instance, The Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) estimated that over the period of 2010–2030, USD 80 billion will be spent on sewerage infrastructure and USD 33 billion on wastewater treatment.

+ Opportunities: Adopting a more sustainable approach through initiatives of Reduce-Recycle-Reuse
Water recycling is reusing treated wastewater for beneficial purposes such as agriculture and landscape irrigation, industrial processes, toilet flushing, and replenishing a groundwater basin (referred to as groundwater recharge). Water recycling offers resource and financial savings.
