2022 Trends in the Liquid Waste Industry

Coming off of the past two years of restraints on U.S. business operations due to the Covid quarantine, there is a lot of hustle and bustle in the business sector of the economy, and the liquid waste handling industry is no exception. Exciting trends abound in the liquid waste handling market. There are also broader business sector trends to be explored, and there are trends to examine in wastewater itself! Let’s take a look at some of these intriguing trends and consider what they may mean for businesses involved in liquid waste handling.

Three Types of Trends in the 2022 Liquid Waste Industry

Here are not one or two, but three types of trends you should be aware of happening across the U.S. American wastewater handling industry in 2022. Consider whether knowledge of these trends may present marketing, sales, or contracting opportunities for your business:

TREND SET 1: Trends In Wastewater Itself

Wastewater Monitoring

U.S. public health authorities have recently begun expanding monitoring of sewage contents nationwide as a system for providing critical early warnings of virus and disease surges at research points throughout the country. For example, an employee has been collecting wastewater samples from dorms at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and the results have already been exceptional. The wastewater monitoring helped the school thwart the spread of coronavirus in 2020.

Wastewater Sampling Data

Sewage water data can serve as an early warning system to alert public health agencies to prepare medical response teams for surging caseloads, mobilize testing units, and increase supply stocks. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now vastly expanding the number of locations for their monitoring to capture data on SARS, Monkeypox, COVID, other viruses, diseases, and other contaigens. They have identified 1,000 sites for the startup of data sampling within the coming months.

Wastewater Testing Challenges

Boston, Miami, and many other cities track and share their own wastewater data. The CDC recently brought together work groups with various state and local health agencies to provide information and guidance in bringing new sampling sites online. But, only about 80% of all U.S. households use public sewer systems. In rural regions, people use well-water and septic systems, which are sometimes old, making it hard to match samples with boundaries.
TREND SET 2: Trends in the Liquid Waste Handling Market

Wastewater Treatment Technologies Market

The wastewater handling business subsector is predicted to realize a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of more than 7% from 2022 to 2027. The industry was negatively affected, as were most others, by the pandemic in 2020, but the market has seen growth over recent quarters and has restored revenues to pre-pandemic levels.
Diminishing Fresh Water Supplies

A major driving factor of short-term market performance in the liquid waste handling industry is the staggering global rate of diminishing resources for fresh water. Of course, the rising demand from shale gas extraction activities and increasing complexities that characterize developing economies are anticipated to boost growth across the international wastewater handling services market.

Poor Water Treatment Knowledge

Offsetting gains from advanced wastewater treatment technologies is the widespread lack of understanding of means and methods for optimally utilizing wastewater treatment techniques. That disparity is predicted to negatively impact the market. Industry players who undertake ambitious research on wastewater treatment technologies may develop opportunities for future market growth.

Municipal Wastewater Treatment

This segment is predicted to dominate the wastewater management industry. The primary technological applications for wastewater treatment include preliminary, primary, secondary, and tertiary treatment. They further include biological nutrient removal (BNR) and resource recovery. They can also extend to sourcing for energy generation, among other forms of utilization. The growing population and increasing scarcity of potable water are the central issues driving demand in the wastewater treatment market.

TREND SET 3: Trends in the Broader Business Sector

The Takeover By Business Automation

In 2022, there is continuing rapid growth of various forms of business automation, including 24-hour phone communications messaging, routing, and other applications. It also includes field sales document processing, service work order process, field invoicing, and a vast range of other software to enable in-house and remote workers fully-integrated functionality. Many automated processes have already become essential to liquid waste management industry operators.

Seamless Online-Offline Business Interaction

There seem to be few C2B and B2B consumers who have not yet come to know the incomparable convenience of seamlessly simultaneously interacting online and offline. Communications with employees, suppliers, prospects, and customers have been revolutionized by networked custom software solutions. Business managers can research vendors, access their files from mobile devices remotely, collaborate with work boards, conduct meetings, and do so many other things instantly.

Expanding Roles for Contract Workers

The nationwide trend toward hiring more freelancers continues in 2022. Many independent contractors enjoy the greater flexibility and better work-life balance of their autonomous position as a service provider. They have proven to fit very well into many small business operations areas. Some of those applicable to a portable restroom services business or other sewage handling company may include HR, accounting, marketing, IT support, mechanical maintenance and repair, office staffing, equipment cleaning, driver activity monitoring, and more.

Translating Trends Into Opportunities

For liquid waste handling business owners who have the initiative and resources to participate in growing some of the above trends, 2022 offers exciting growth possibilities.

All entrepreneurs in the industry are at least positioned to share much of the information in Trend Set 1 to raise public awareness, and thereby honor your brand’s ideals.

Qualified contractors could capture a portion of the healthy market growth that is anticipated for the liquid waste handling industry over the next half-decade, per Trend Set 2.

All can also take advantage of free or low-cost online tools alluded to in Trend Set 3. Further, all should strive to implement affordable versions of resources to bring the business in step with the modern realities in Trend Set 3.

Of course, growth priorities in 2022 Q3 and Q4 must examine potentially necessary capital equipment investment, employee development, budget diligence, advertising, and other planning matters. But, identifying and pursuing a role for your business in the advancement of one or more of these unique and universally significant trends represents another strategic component that should be understood to fit ideally in virtually any overall growth plan of liquid waste handling business operators.
