IoT Improving The Water Treatment Industry

2 min readNov 15, 2021

With expeditious urbanization, one of the most essential natural resources- water is becoming scarce rapidly. Water is not only used for general and commercial purposes but also for industrial applications as well.

About 71 % of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, with the oceans accounting for about 96.5 % of all of the earth’s water. Yet less than 2% of the water available on the earth’s surface is consumable. Hence, it is becoming a binding need to start incorporating treated water as an option to meet the global water demands.

Testing the quality of water is an integral part of operations in industries like water treatment and management, chemical, manufacturing, petroleum, agriculture, wastewater treatment, etc.

By setting up a water treatment plant in its facility, a company can prevent environmental harm and potential threat to human health. Through the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, solutions that are rich in monitoring, analytical, and automation features can be developed.

Companies can bring about an overall change by implementing Internet of Things (IoT) technology to help make water management more efficient and safer for consumers and workers. In the industries such as water and wastewater treatment, an emerging technology in the market is the use of sensors, which is forecast to grow to over $2Bn by 2030.
