Global Solar Water Disinfection Market: Overview
Solar water disinfection has become one of the most convenient and inexpensive methods used by more than 6 million people around the world to disinfect non-potable water. The zero intervention measure has gained popularity among rural populations and low-income areas, especially in developing countries, for purifying drinking water. These areas are characterized by poor access to water sources and lack of adequate sanitation. Contaminated water has been proven to be the cause of various gastrointestinal illnesses, especially diarrhea, infecting at least 6 billion people around the world. The bactericidal action of solar irradiation in water has been established in many scientific literature. Communities in low-income areas are infected with a variety of pathogenic microorganisms such as fecal coliforms, protozoa and various viruses.

The process involves exposing the volume of contaminated water in about two liters of transparent polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles to direct sunlight for at least six hours. The mechanism of action is not very clear. However, the synergistic impact of UV photons found in solar energy and the mild thermal heating produced during sun exposure are essential to the disinfection process. Sunlight absorbed in water catalyzes the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) at the intracellular level of pathogenic microorganisms, triggering disinfection. The effect of this mechanism has been adequately validated in E. coli. One of the key elements of the solar water purification system is the technique, the other being the solar distillation process. Compared to conventional water purification techniques such as chlorination and artificial UV radiation, solar water disinfection is preferred in low-income communities because the technique does not require expensive and sophisticated equipment that stimulates the solar water disinfection market.

Global Solar Water Disinfection Market: Drivers and Constraints
The low cost of solar water disinfection equipment, initiatives for solar energy, government support, increasing water pollution and growing awareness of the importance of clean water are the major factors driving the global solar water disinfection market.

However, factors such as lack of awareness in rural areas where the incidence of waterborne diseases is high and dependence on the sun for the operation of sewage treatment plants are holding back the growth of this market. Nonetheless, the developing countries of Asia-Pacific and Africa, combined with advancements in filtration technologies for bacteria and other toxic agents, will provide growth opportunities for the global water disinfection market.

Global Solar Water Disinfection Market: Market Segmentation
The global solar water disinfection market is segmented on the basis of methodology, application, and geography. On the basis of the contaminated water treatment methodology, the market can be segmented into effects of electricity, ultraviolet radiation, and heat. Electricity-activated solar disinfection uses electricity produced using photovoltaic cells to purify water. The thermal water disinfection method uses solar energy to heat the water. The heat from infrared radiation can be stored with the help of solar collectors. The ultraviolet radiation method involves the use of sunlight and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles to purify water.

Solar water disinfection equipment provides economical and environmentally friendly techniques for water purification. These equipments are suitable for use in refugee camps and disaster relief situations to provide safe drinking water to the affected population. However, solar water disinfection equipment is not effective against non-biological agents such as toxic chemicals and metals.

Global Solar Water Disinfection Market: Regional Outlook
The global solar water disinfection market is analyzed based on the areas where solar water disinfection equipment can be used. Regions with high concentration of polluted water are the potential growth areas of the solar water disinfection market. The main regions include Honduras and El Salvador in North America; Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Indonesia and Nepal in Asia-Pacific; Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, DR Congo and Kenya in the Rest of the world region.
