Shipping activities transport more than 80% of the world’s commodities and transfers three to five billion metric tons of ballast water every year. Ballast water is essential to the safe and efficient operation of shipping, but also poses serious ecological, economic and health threats due to the inadvertent transfer of invasive aquatic species. The introduction of invasive marine species into new environments through ballast water transfer has been identified as one of the major threats to the world’s oceans. In response, the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) called on the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and other international bodies to take action to solve the problem.
By this time, the IMO had been seeking a solution for more than a decade. In 1991, the organization published Guidelines for Preventing the Introduction of Unwanted Organisms and Pathogens from Ship’s Ballast Waters and Sediment Discharges. This publication was updated in 1993. In 1997, the IMO published Guidelines for Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water to Minimize the Transfer of Harmful Aquatic Organisms and Pathogens (Resolution A.868 (20)).
In February 2004, the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments (also known as the Ballast Water Management or BWM Convention) was adopted by the IMO. To complement the Convention, the IMO adopted over 15 sets of guidelines and other documents contained in various resolutions and circulars. In addition to the international regulations, federal laws, such as those implemented in the U.S., as well as state and local regulations impact market dynamics.

Prior studies analyzing the ballast water treatment equipment market have based their calculations on the IMO’s original schedule for system implementation. The timetable is now expected to change, so the market needs to be reassessed. Instead of requiring that the entire global fleet be in compliance within three years, the new schedule would spread the annual installation workload more evenly over the five-year period from 2016 to 2021.
Regardless of the implementation schedule, there is a massive global market for ballast water treatment systems, as many as 10,000 units per year or 30 installations per day, for multiple years. However, the market is unusual in that once all existing ships are in compliance, only newbuild ships will require system installation, shrinking the market to 2,000 to 3,000 ships per year, or about five installations per day.
SCOPE AND FORMAT
This report is focused on the market for ballast water treatment equipment for four world regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the “Rest of World.” The study begins with a discussion of problems associated with ballast water, and continues with a discussion of existing and pending regulations regarding its treatment, and an overview of the various types of treatment technologies.
The report includes current and projected market value, market drivers, trends and opportunities, top-selling products and suppliers, and a general market outlook. The report contains roughly 100 market tables and figures that provide a comprehensive insight into the market, along with nearly 80 company profiles. Market tables are presented for a range of parameters including geographic region, vessel size and type, supplier and product type.
All market data pertains to sales at the manufacturer level. Data are expressed in current U.S. dollars.
– An overview of the global market for ballast treatment technologies, including solid-liquid separations, with and without coagulation and flocculation; chemical treatment, such as chlorination and ozonation; and physical treatment such as ultraviolet irradiation, gas injection, and ultrasonic processes.
