Coating Markets for Teflon™ Fluoropolymers: Commercial Water Treatment

The US commercial water and sewer industry includes approximately 5,000 companies who generate an estimated $9 billion in annual revenue. Their primary focus is on companies that provide equipment and services to communities, chemical facilities, and food manufacturers with water treatment issues. The commercial segment of the water treatment industry is relatively small compared to the $55 billion spent annually on water and sewage services by regional and local governments. With continued population growth and more stringent drinking water standards, the EPA estimates the industry will be spending some $280 billion to upgrade facilities during the next 20 years.

The market is concentrated, with the 50 largest companies (e.g., American Water Works, California Water, Aqua America, etc.) accounting for nearly 65% of overall revenue. The industry is expected to continue to consolidate, as larger companies find it easier to gain capital funding for expensive maintenance projects.

Key Benefits of Teflon™ industrial coatings: 

Typical Applications:
  • T bolts for ductile iron water pipe - anti-galling with corrosion resistance
  • Grates - releases build up of sediment material that occurs during the waste process
  • Pumps - minor chemical resistance and low COF
