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. Ongoing pressure on water supplies will continue to foster new seawater desalination and private sector investment in key markets.

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

In this new Data Insight, Bluefield’s water experts analyze the net ownership positions, geographies, and plants of large-scale desalination facilities (>50,000 m3/d) by capacity, including government entities, independent water companies, Japanese trading houses, and infrastructure investors.
