Published: Sep 2018 | Report Code: 59294-09-18

Industry Outlook

Scarcity of potable water left human race with limited alternatives including water recycling and seawater desalination that allowed the global water desalination market to register market value of US$ 16.4 Bn in 2017. The market expected to reach US$ 37.6 Bn in 2026 with a growth rate of 9.5%, an eye-opening number of several industrial giants planning to venture into water desalination. The market is quite mature in the region of Middle East, Africa, Southern Europe and some part of the Caribbean Islands. However, the market has huge potential in developing and highly populated regions of Asia Pacific and continuously developing countries of Latin America. More than 1,700 desalination plants are producing fresh water each day and more desalination plants are waiting to get commissioned. Reducing resources of fresh water, adverse environment changes and growing population all constitute together as catalyst for the water desalination market growth throughout and beyond forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

"Reverse Osmosis Technology to Filter Out Fresh Water In Future years"

Thermal desalination techniques such as vapor compression, multi-effect desalination or multi-stage flash desalination dominated the earlier part of water desalination market. Membrane filtration involved considerable membrane cost and the overall process was not affordable. From past few years, significant development in manufacturing techniques and introduction of advanced material helped in reducing the cost of RO membranes. Owing to this RO technology made a massive comeback in overall water desalination market. The technology projected to remain dominant in coming years as this is more efficient and requires less energy compared to thermal desalination methods. Thermal desalination methods expected to get some leverage by introduction of renewable energy. However, the technologies will lose its share to reverse osmosis making RO lucrative segment to invest in future.

"Oceans to the Rescue as Chief Source for Water Desalination"

Water desalination plants use multiple sources for water processes depending on the availability. Very few countries are blessed with ample fresh water sources such as Canada. However, most of the countries have vast coastlines having direct access to seawater. This helped seawater segment to lead the segment with overall market share of more than 70% and projected to lead further in coming years. Continuous development in desalination techniques and over-consumption of fresh water projected to help brackish water and wastewater to regain some lost market share. As an inexpensive source, almost endless availability and easy accessibility projected to keep seawater on top of the podium as prime source for desalination.

"High Presence of Desalination Plants helped Middle East Emerge as Global Leader"

Presence of countries such as Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Kuwait among others depends heavily on seawater desalination to quench their thirst for fresh water. Middle East Asia leads and directs the global desalination market with almost 55% of the global water desalination plants present in this region. The combined desalination capacity of all above three countries crosses 20 Mn m3 of water per day which is almost double the global capacity. Spain in Europe region holds the majority of share and is the fourth largest country in terms of desalination capacity. Europe is home to several leading desalination companies and offers prospects for the market to grow. However, Asia Pacific is predicted to be the fastest growing region on account of notable economic development and high population. China and India projected to double their desalination capacity in next five years offering tremendous growth opportunities for the companies to mark their presence in Asia Pacific. Australia is another country to watch out with desalination capacity of more than 1.8 Mn m3 of water per day and growing. Similarly, Latin America and Africa continent pose great growth potential for global desalination market in coming years.
