With 97% of the Earth’s surface covered by oceans, seawater desalination stands as a proven backstop to addressing global water scarcity challenges. Since 1999, the global desalination sector has seen significant growth in large-scale (>50,000 m3/d) plants, with over 42 million m3/d of capacity added across 214 facilities. This growth has cemented the positions of leading group investors; solutions providers; and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) companies.

The ownership and development landscape of large-scale desalination plants is marked by a diverse array of stakeholders, made up of 168 net owners and 105 different EPC companies. This core group of firms—public and private—plays an important role in the continued development of desalination projects.
