Desalination

The global desalination market is undergoing significant change driven by more widespread competition for water by increasingly stressed utilities and industry verticals. Climate shifts are putting additional stress on existing water supplies in select markets like Australia, the western U.S., and Latin America. At the same time, baseload demand for water in the Middle East rises with population and industrial requirements..

Within this context, the global desalination market continues to evolve, driven by more widespread competition for private participation and associated capacity additions.

Independent water providers have become one of the most dynamic groups in the desalination market

Since 2000, a burgeoning group of pure-play water players, EPCs, power players, and strategic investors have been angling to own and operate larger project stakes. The trend toward privatization has steadily increased since 2000 and is expected to continue. >>Learn More

Cost of desal versus other water supplies

Desalination costs have come down significantly with the introduction of reverse osmosis technology; membrane solutions have declined in costs by over 60% compared to thermal desalination. Also, energy demands for desalination have improved over 38% since 2000 through energy recovery devices bringing down associated costs. >>Learn More

Desalination developers leveraging renewable power

Since 2000, 66 renewable-energy-powered desalination plants have been commissioned using mostly solar and wind energy power generation. Almost all of this renewable desalination capacity has been installed in developed countries where offsetting carbon emissions was a priority. >>Learn More

Industrial project stress is increasing market growth

A 30% share of installations, industrial desalination is expected to inch upward with an increasing number of large projects in planning. Industrial water users are increasingly tackling water constraints on their own rather than relying on municipalities and governments.
