Water Desalination Equipment Market Size Worth $25.7 Billion By 2027

June 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Water Desalination Equipment Market Growth & Trends

The global water desalination equipment market size is anticipated to reach USD 25.7 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 9.0%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The increasing consumption of freshwater in Middle East and Africa and decreasing availability of freshwater is expected to drive the market.

In addition, rapid industrialization has further stressed the resources such as river and sea across the globe. Industries such as pulp and paper, oil and gas, agriculture, and food and beverage, require a large amount of water for various processes. Thus, increasing demand from various industrial end-users is likely to have a positive impact on the overall market growth.

Rising adoption of renewable energy to produce freshwater is gaining prominence in the market as conventional technologies require a large amount of energy to operate, making them costly and impractical for use in developing nations. Such trends are expected to benefit market growth over the forecast period.

The incorporation of digital technology in desalination plants for managing operations and enhancing monitoring, process control, and detecting risks is likely to complement market growth. Technological innovations in the desalination industry focus on different objectives such as increasing the freshwater yield, reducing the production of brine, and its proper disposal.

Middle East and Africa held the largest market share in 2019 owing to scarcity of freshwater in the region. Increasing number of immigrants in the region are expected to drive demand for freshwater, which, in turn, is anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period. In Asia Pacific, rapid urbanization, growing population, and intensified industrialization are likely to strain resources including rivers, thereby driving the demand for desalination equipment in the region. In North America, increasing number of oil and gas exploration activities in the region are likely to drive the market.
