    The global water desalination market was valued at USD 15.0 billion in 2017 and is projected to witness healthy growth with CAGR 7.8% over the forecast period. Rising water crisis across the globe is the key factor to propel the market demand for water desalination over the years ahead.

    Global water desalination market revenue, 2014-2025, (USD Million)

    Over the past few years, desalination technology provided approximately 1% of the global drinking water supply was catered by the use of desalination technologies. Water scarcity is offset by employing various water reuse technologies including water desalination. However, this percentage is set to increase on account of rising demand for water in various industrial processes. Moreover, increasing demand for water in the utilities sector such as municipalities and agriculture is expected to boost the capacity of water desalination plants over the forecast period.

    Asia Pacific is likely to illustrate an exponential market growth in terms of water utilization especially in the manufacturing sector. Presence of a large industrial base in the region and water intensive manufacturing and processing sectors such as metallurgy, oil & gas, and chemicals are likely to create favorable scope for the desalination market demand in the region. Significant industrial development in in ASEAN countries such as Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Philippines is considered to provide ample opportunities for the desalination market expansion by 2025.

    Market dynamics in the Middle East vary enormously from the rest of the world. Water desalination in this region is a mature technology, driven typically by its constant utilization in the oil & gas industry. Additionally, the region reflects a low political resistance in the oil & gas sector that is considered as an important socio-economic factor contributing towards the market growth. At present, nearly 50% of the water supplied in Saudi Arabia is purified by use of desalination.

    The rest of the world portrays a different picture with desalination being an emerging technology with geopolitical scenario varying across developed and developing countries. However, rising awareness regarding water scarcity has resulted in several nations undertaking initiatives to meet the rising requirement. An estimated investment of approximately USD 10 billion over the next five years is likely to double the water desalination capacity across the world. The cumulative capacity reached 92.5 million (m3/d) in 2017, which increased from 88.6 million (m3/d) from the previous year.

    Seawater and brackish water are the two main sources that incorporate desalination technology. The seawater desalination sector dominated the global industry primarily due to the prominent abundance of salt-water resources. Rising number of projects in the utility sector are expected to boost seawater desalination market. Government subsidies for seawater desalination are being proposed in Morocco, Singapore, and China, which in turn is anticipated to boost the market value to a considerable extent over the coming years, mainly in Asia Pacific and Africa.

    Brackish water is anticipated to gain importance, with an increase in 29% contracts within the first half of 2017. However, presence of limited reservoirs of brackish water across the globe is likely to result in a restricted market growth in this segment.

    Utility and industrial sectors alike have witnessed significant growth in 2016, due to the rise in the number of government aids towards water treatment via water desalination. Budget allocations by various governments to improve the water infrastructure and provide adequate water supply to their population, is likely to result in installations of numerous desalination plants as well as expansion of existing water treatment facilities. For instance, in September 2016, the Namibian Government announced plans to construct its own desalination plant in the Erongo region by the end of 2019, in order to cater to the water demand in the country.

    Membrane technologies such as reverse osmosis has developed as the largest and fastest growing technology to be adopted for water desalination, although thermal water desalination has been practiced widely across the world. In 2017, 2.2 million m3/d of the contracted capacity was produced using membrane technology, while 0.1 million m3/d was produced through thermal processes.

    The global industry is marked by the presence of several large and established players including GE, Suez Environnement S.A., Veolia Environnement S.A., The Dow Chemical Company, and Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction. These companies command a significant share within the global industry with the players focusing on establishing new processes and plants. For instance, in October 2015, Veolia commenced operations at Campo Dalías desalination plant, which is now one of the biggest water treatment facilities in Europe. With a capacity of 97,200 m3/d, the plant’s infrastructure was designed in a manner to accommodate an expansion to 129,600 m3/d in case of the requirement of an extra capacity in the future. The construction of the plant was completed in November 2014 that required over 1,200,000 manpower hours with 12,810 membranes and installation of 41 km long distribution pipeline.
