Global backflow preventer market is expected to exhibit 3.7% CAGR between 2021 and 2031 : FMI

Backflow preventer sales are set to reach US$ 367.4 Mn in 2021 with a stable long-term projection, as per the latest insights from Future Market Insights (FMI), ESOMAR-certified research and consulting firm. Demand for backflow preventers waned in 2020 due to the recessionary effects of COVID-19 on construction activities, resulting in the deceleration of backflow preventers sales. However, barring a few countries, the water infrastructure development activities have resumed at a healthy rate post Q2 of the financial year. With the sector undergoing a recovery mode, the immediate, as well as long-term growth outlook of the backflow preventers market, remains positive.
