In the past, there has been skepticism for alternative and advanced technologies, like UV. The receptivity of UV was relatively low as municipalities were gravitated towards conventional chlorine treatment technology. However, due to the regulatory environment, the market is expected to show modest growth. This regulatory environment is specifically a result of the Long Term 2 Surface Water Treatment Rule and the Disinfection By-Products rule. The major market participants include Aquionics, Calgon Corporation, ITT Corporation and Trojan Technologies. There were less than 15 significant players participating in the market.
