GE Competing with Ecolab, Flowserve, Xylem and Pentair for Top Spot in Fluid Treatment Market

No one company has as much as two percent of this $330 billion market. Five companies with over a one percent market share are GE, Ecolab, Flowserve, Xylem and Pentair. These market shares are included in the McIlvaine report, Air/Gas/Water/Fluid Treatment and Control: World Markets.
