Ballast water is used in ships to ensure suitable balance and stability. Ships intake and discharge water while execution of loading and off-loading operations. During these activities often exchange of micro-organisms takes place, which negatively impacts marine ecosystem. In order to minimize the impact, ballast water treatment systems were developed using different technologies by key providers. The ballast water treatment system performs filtration and disinfection of ballast water. Various filtration technologies are used for removal of impurities, pesticides-active ingredients, toxic organisms and other pollutants, thus preventing the discharge of harmful elements in aquatic environment.

There are different legislations developed by The International Maritime Organization (IMO) concerning discharge of ballast water. Growing industrialization has led the growth of transport and logistics industry to whole new level, resulting in the rise in demand of marine transport. Presently, thousands of cargo ships are used in export and imports of goods across the globe. Ballast water treatment system are extensively used in cargo ships hence the growing demand for cargo ships is one of the key factor in the growth of ballast water treatment system market.

Ballast Water Treatment System Market: Dynamics

Owing to the essential application in conserving marine ecosystem from harmful species and pollutants, the demand for ballast water treatment system is expected to grow at a significant pace. Regulations and stringent norms issued by IMO and United States Coast Guard (USCG) for the compulsory usage of ballast water treatment system is one of the key factor fuelling the growth of the market. Increasing transport of chemical and other goods and sea-borne trade is driving the market for ballast water treatment system.
