There are many unanticipated events which are changing the potential markets in flow control and treatment.  Regulations are important factors.  New regulations for ballast wastewater discharges and sulfur air emissions for ships will substantially boost the markets for liquid treatment and scrubbers. 

The oil spill prevention market is booming since the Gulf oil spill disaster. The market for systems to prevent escape of contaminants during a nuclear meltdown and to remediate contaminated sites is substantial.

Some of the market adjustments are due to the development or acceleration in growth in dynamic industries.  The continuing successes in developing the gas shale reserves are the best example. The more rapid conversion from ocean harvesting to aquaculture for fish products will also positively boost the flow control and liquid treatment markets.

The markets can be further boosted by a proactive approach by industry efforts.  Three initiatives which could have significant impact on the markets are:

  • Co-location of power and municipal wastewater treatment plants
  • Improved co-location of livestock and aquaculture enterprises
  • Retrofitting of ultrasupercritical technology at existing coal-fired power plants
