In Brazil, sewage treatment rate is considerably low, as only 30-35% of sewage was treated in 2012. Low sewage collection & treatment rate, and poor connectivity of sewage with households creates considerable opportunity for wastewater treatment plant installers in Brazil. Only 40-45% of total households in Brazil are connected to sewage network. Poor water distribution and sanitation facilities are among the major factors driving the market for wastewater treatment in the country. Though growing industrialization is contributing to the growth of the country’s economy, this is also leading to increase inwater pollution levels due to direct disposition of untreated industrial wastes into the rivers. In addition, Brazil is the second largest producer of ethanol after the United States. On an average, for 50 million gallonsof ethanol production, about 150-250 million gallons water is required. Rising environmental regulations towards reuse of water and water scarcity is driving the growth of wastewater treatment plants in Brazil. 

According to “Brazil Wastewater Treatment Plants Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2018”, the wastewater treatment plants market in Brazil touched USD 1.72 billion in 2012 due to rising gap between water demand & supply, and implementation of stringent regulations for reuse of water. With about 189.7 liters per person per day, the southeast region of Brazil dominates in terms of per capita water consumption, while the figure for the northeast region stands at around 120.6 liters per person per day. The rising per capita water consumption in southeast Brazil makes the region a promising market. Municipal wastewater treatment plants market accounts for a majority of market demand compared to the industrial segment as a result of rising surface water contamination. However, the industrial wastewater treatment plants market is also witnessing growth due to high industrial water tariffs. Sewage utility companies such as Copasa, Sabesp, and Sanepar are expanding their water & sewage networks, which in turn, is contributing to the growth of wastewater treatment plant installers. Installers such as Xylem, Veolia, FOZ and Degremont are theleading players in the Brazilian wastewater treatment plants market. “Brazil Wastewater Treatment Plant Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2018”discusses the following aspects related to wastewater treatment plants market in Brazil:
