Data Insight

Bluefield analyzes the ownership positions, geographies, and plants of the largest desalination owners by capacity, including government entities, pure-play water companies, Japanese trading houses, and infrastructure investors.

Key highlights of the 2015 Global Desalination Ownership rankings include:
  • The top 25 desalination system owners — public and private — added almost a quarter (25%) of total desalination capacity in 2015.
  • Private water players continue to play a key role representing 9 of the 10 ten key players in 2015
  • Anticipated M&A activity is expected to further reshape the global rankings over the next year, as companies look to divest operating assets.
