Market For Ultra Violet (UV) Lamps Is Expected To Expand At A CAGR Of 11.3 Percent Through 2032, According To FMI

Several factors, including those discussed in detail in FMI’s report, are expected to drive revenue growth in the Global UV lamps market at CAGR of 11.3 percent during the forecast period.

The market for UV lamps is expected to grow at a double-digit CAGR throughout the forecast period. Stringent government regulations and accelerating industrial development are the main factors fueling the global UV lamp market growth.

UV lamps are basic lamps that emit ultraviolet radiation with a wavelength ranging between 400 nm and 100nm. UV light is classified into three wavelengths: UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. This report covers UV-C, also known as germicidal UV – with wavelengths ranging between 100 nm to 280 nm – and its purpose is to disinfect or deactivate the DNA and RNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, thus inhibiting their ability to multiply.

Based on lamp type, the market has been segmented into UV LED and UV mercury lamps, with the latter representing nearly 90% revenue share of the global UV lamp market in 2014; FMI expects this segment to witness a decline of 27 BPS by the end of 2025.

UV mercury lamp segment is categorised into low-pressure, medium- pressure and amalgam mercury lamps. Among these, amalgam mercury lamps dominated the UV mercury lamp segment market, accounting for over 40% of the UV mercury lamp market in 2014.

Based on end-use application, the UV lamps market is segmented into wastewater treatment, water treatment, air treatment, surface treatment and food and beverages disinfection. Revenue contribution by the food and beverages disinfection segment was over 25.1% in 2014, which is projected to increase to 28.2% by the end of 2025, gaining 309 BPS and expanding at a CAGR of 12.5% during the forecast period.

The water treatment segment is categorised into industrial process water treatment, commercial water treatment, residential water treatment, municipal pool and spa, and others. The municipal water treatment sub-segment accounted for the highest revenues in 2014, and this trend is expected to continue through 2025.

Air treatment is further sub-segmented into residential, commercial, healthcare facilities, and others. Among these, residential and commercial sub-segments accounted for the bulk of the revenues in 2014; FMI estimates this segment to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period.

Increasing Municipal Infrastructure Investment Driving Adoption of UV Lamps

The growth of the global UV lamps market is mainly driven by increasing municipal infrastructure investment, safety measures through regulations, increasing industrial development and price performance of UV lamps compared to other conventional treatment methods.
