The global Water and Wastewater treatment market to reach USD 674.72 billion by 2025 ( Source: Hexa Research), driven by the rising demand for freshwater for drinking, industrialization and agriculture. Treated water is suitable for various end-uses such as river flow maintenance, drinking, the supply of industrial water and irrigation.

Water & wastewater treatment processes such as softening, deodorization and purification make the water more useful and potable. Asia Pacific was the largest market accounting for 43.9% of the revenue share in 2016. It is anticipated to gain momentum over the forecast period on account of the growing demand for filtered water for various applications.

Water treatment systems are either installed at the point of use or the point of entry. However, as drinking water is a vital priority for the population, the residential sector contributes significantly towards the development of water treatment market as compared to the industrial and commercial sector.

Government of India has a target to provide Functional Household Tap Connection (FHTC) by 2024 of the order of 146 Million, through Jal Jivan Mission. The total outlay for this project is USD 51 billion between 2019 and 2024 in 700,000 villages.

The global waste Management market is expected to reach USD 530 billion by 2025 growing at a rate of 6.0%. Increase in Environmental awareness, rapid Industrialization, surge in population, and raise in the urbanization foster the growth of global waste management market.

Under the WWM conference we are creating two platforms:

  • 1) A knowledge base
  • 2) A Business oriented

The existing Businesses in the WWM sector and new enterprises can utilize these platforms to create opportunities in this sector.

Mary grew up on Water Street in Watertown, Wisconsin, and gave her first talk on water at age 10. After receiving a Bachelor degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and an MBA from Northwestern University - Kellogg School of Management, Mary went on to work for Accenture, Dale Carnegie, Envestnet Wealth Management and Tech Image.

She created and ran an Internet Agency that played a key role in two Internet firsts, the first futures exchange on the Web and the first real-time futures trading site.

Mary came back to water by way of a Pakistani water charity. Her search for a replacement for their 30-year-old RO system introduced her to WEFTEC, leading to a partnership with Israel’s NewTech to promote the 2016 Israel/California Water Conference. Since then, she has helped create and sponsor 6 water industry events, 40 roundtable programs and 30 expert videos. She was named one of 100 Water Heroes in the #Running Dry campaign for her efforts to advance global water security with the development and promotion of smart water technologies. She is an active member of WEF, AWWA, the Smart Water Alliance Network, Alliance for Water Efficiency and the Water Pro Community. Her personal network of water industry professionals numbers in the 10s of 1000s, and spans the globe.

Her company Global Water Works finds customers for water technology companies. By partnering with industry experts who understand how the water industry operates to support engagement and education, Global Water Works is able to cut the normal water technology adoption time of 10-30 years down to under three years.
