- Frost Sullivan to Host Quarterly Analyst Briefing on Industrial Water and Wastewater Treatment Market on Thursday, 4 December 2008

The Brazilian Industrial Water Wastewater Treatment market is by far one of the most dynamic and the fastest growing regional markets. The rapid industrial growth has fuelled demand for high purity water and driven the growth of the process water treatment market including advanced systems based on membrane solutions.


On this topic Frost Sullivan will host a free telephone and web briefing on Thursday, 4 December 2008 at 3.00 p.m. GMT to provide industry participants with an overview of the Brazilian Industrial Water Wastewater Treatment Market.

To have access to our complimentary web briefing, please email Chiara Carella at with the following information: your full name, company name, title, telephone number, e-mail, address, city, state and country. Upon receipt of the above information, a registration link will be e-mailed to you. You may also register to receive a recorded version of the briefing at anytime by submitting the aforementioned contact details.

The diversity of the industrial sector in Brazil has also been a key factor in the broad based growth story of the industrial water treatment market with opportunities being widespread for both conventional and advanced systems. The strong petrochemical sector has been one of the driving forces of the industrial market in Brazil and together with other key sectors such as mining mineral processing and pulp paper is beginning to define the growth pattern for both process water wastewater treatment systems in the region.

The two key trends in the Brazilian industrial water wastewater treatment market at present relate to water reuse and recycling as well as energy generation from wastewater treatment. This has prompted an increasing interest and growth of wastewater treatment for energy generation systems such as Up-flow Anaerobic Sludge Blank (UASB) systems and advanced wastewater treatment solutions such as membrane bioreactors and stand alone membrane systems for tertiary treatment.

The Brazilian industrial water and wastewater treatment market is witnessing double digit growth in 2008 driven strongly by key equipment segments such as membrane separation in process water treatment and in the wastewater treatment. The rapid industrial growth is fuelling the demand for high purity process water and related treatment systems. On the wastewater treatment segment, legislation remains the over-riding driver. However, with the increasing presence of multinational companies in Brazil, there is a sweeping trend of applying and attaining the much sought after sustainability with regards to water management. This in turn has driven the demand for water reuse and recycling solutions as well as UASB systems that consume less energy and actually generate energy from wastewater, observes Fredrick Royan, Research Manager of Environment (Water) Markets.

The briefing will benefit engineering procurement and construction (EPC) companies, manufacturers and distributors of water wastewater treatment technology such as filtration, clarification, disinfection (UV, ozone, chlorination, etc), pre-treatment, primary treatment, secondary treatment (Membrane Bioreactors, Moving Bed Bio-reactors, Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket, etc), tertiary treatment, sludge treatment, etc. The briefing could also be useful for original equipment manufacturers (OEM's), project management consulting, equity and analyst firms interested in the global water market in general and the Brazilian market in particular.
