Water Treatment

Water treatment markets have seen a recent pivot towards increasing diversity and lowering the age demographic as new technology continually changes conventional knowledge previously required by employers. A mix of both technical project and commercial experience is highly sought after. As one of the most knowledge-intensive industries globally, it is deemed integral to our sustainable future.

The areas of water and wastewater treatment are expected to experience steady growth at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2019 to 2025 to reach $211 billion by 2025.

With the global demand for clean water increasing as a result of rapid urbanisation, high importance has been placed on stopping water-borne diseases and improving overall water quality.

Emerging Trends in Water Treatment and Talent Insights

Chemicals, as a result, play a significant part in treating water, as well as harnessing the right equipment and facilities to improve access to clean water. This, therefore, separates much of the general labour force in this sector into the disciplines of engineering and biochemicals, although many other conventional business functions are also relevant.

The water and wastewater treatment sector is still expected to see the skills gap continue widening with a lack of young STEM employees to fill key skilled roles such as research scientists and engineers. The pandemic has also caused mass change with the industry slowing down further proved by the US Bureau of Labour Statistics estimating that the chemicals industry had experienced a 2.1% cut of the entire workforce.

There is also expected to be an increasing need for advanced and skilled employees such as chemical engineers and data scientists. While conventional engineering and technical skills will always be a requirement for any company in the industry, new talent and time-relevant skills are essential for these companies to remain competitive and have continued success.
