Report Code: CMR 30466 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Moving Bed Bioreactor Market Overview

Moving Bed Bioreactor (MBBR) market is forecast to reach $1.4 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 15.3% during 2021-2026 due to increasing demand for wastewater treatment process in various end use sectors such as healthcare and food & beverages. MBBR is also used in various applications such as nitrification, denitrification, and more. Moving bed biofilm reactor increases the capacity of wastewater treatment and reduces the footprint of the tanks required to treat the wastewater. The biofilm process has been specifically developed for the biodegradation of carbon and the elimination of nitrogen in industrial as well as in municipal wastewater treatment plants. This process provides extremely high removal rates in denitrification, nitrification, and another elimination process. Thus, increasing demand for MBBR in wastewater treatment from various sectors is expected to increase the market size during the projected area.

Impact of COVID-19

The tragedy of COVID-19, which is declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organization, is having a noticeable impact on global economic growth. This has affected the demand and supply chain as well, thereby limiting the growth in 2021. Thus, all pending activities are limiting the demand of MBBR.

Moving Bed Bioreactor Market Segment Analysis – By Product

Aerobic segment held the largest share in the moving bed bioreactor market in 2020. Aerobic used in biological wastewater treatment process. Aerobic product converts organics into carbon dioxide and new biomass. Aerobic treatment can act as stand-alone systems for treating raw wastewater systems. It can be used specifically as a biological nutrient removal system (BNR) to remove nitrogen and phosphorus. Hence, such factors are increasing demand for aerobics MBBR technology for wastewater treatment.

Moving Bed Bioreactor Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Nitrification held a significant share in the global moving bed bioreactor market in 2020. MBBR converts ammonium into nitrate in the nitrification process and nitrate turns into nitrogen gas. In the nitrification process, moving bed bioreactor improves the quality of wastewater. In nitrification, MBBR nitrified bacteria oxidize ammonia to nitrate under toxic conditions, and then denitrification occurred under anoxic conditions. Hence, such factors are increasing the demand for MBBR in nitrification.

Moving Bed Bioreactor Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Municipal wastewater treatment dominated the global moving bed bioreactor market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 8.9% during 2021-2026. Moving bed bioreactor can play a vital role in municipal wastewater treatment. In municipal sewage plants, water contains large amounts of organic matter that must be removed by MBBR before the water can re-enter the water treatment system. Wastewater in municipal treatment involves a lot of biowastes, thus MBBR is an ideal solution for the treatment of bio-waste. Hence, moving bed bioreactor is widely used for municipal wastewater treatment which increasing the growth of the market.

Moving Bed Bioreactor Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

North America dominated the moving bed bioreactor market in 2020 with a share up to 42.7% owing to heavy public and private investments in wastewater treatment. According to the Environment Protection Agency of America, the Nation’s wastewater footprint includes over 800,000 miles of public sewers and 500,000 miles of private lateral sewers in the region. In 2019, the annual water infrastructure capital investment was US$ 81 billion. Additionally, according to the Investments in Medical and Health Research and Development in America, the total U.S. investment in medical and health research and development grew by 6.4% from 2017 to $194.2 billion in 2018. Thus, the investment in the pharmaceutical sector increasing the demand for wastewater treatment processes in the healthcare sector which, in turn, increasing demand for moving bed bioreactor market in the region.

Moving Bed Bioreactor Market Drivers

Increasing Demand from Healthcare Industry

Bio bed biofilm reactor used in analgesics, anti-depressants, and antibiotics in hospitals wastewater. Hence increasing market size of the healthcare sector is expected to grow the market size of MBBR. According to the India brand equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian healthcare sector is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22% during FY16–FY20. The Government of India aims to increase healthcare spending to 3% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 2022 and planning to increase public health spending to 2.5% of the country's GDP by 2025. Thus, the increasing healthcare sector is increasing demand for the MBBR market.

Increasing Consumption of Moving Bed Bioreactor Technology

Moving bed bioreactor technology is easy to operate and used in new sewage plants, especially those requiring a small footprint. MBBR helps to increase the number of nitrifying bacteria in existing activated sludge systems. Additionally, MBBR enhances process stability and treatment capacity of wastewater treatment system. Hence, such factors are increasing the demand for moving bed bioreactors.

Moving Bed Bioreactor Market Challenges

Lack of Awareness

In sewage plants, wastewater tanks need skilled experts to properly analyze the decomposition of waste in the tank. The moving bed bioreactors system use the advanced sensor to ensure the bacteria on the carriers is still thriving. The lack of awareness about sensor regarding how it applies on the tanks and about the moving bed bioreactors technology is limiting the growth of the market.
