The Global Desalination Market to 2026

No. of Pages: 121

GMR Data’s ‘The Global Desalination Market to 2026’ highlights how the desalination market will shift over the next decade, with detailed forecasts for each key region globally. The report focuses on the key countries that will drive the desalination sector across the next 10 years; looking at the factors that will drive or restrain each country.

The global desalination sector reached $7,865m across 2011, GMR Data forecast that this figure will reach $12,603m across 2016; equating to a 5-year CAGR of 9.9%, this growth has been primarily driven by the Middle East, North America and Asia Pacific where a number of high profile, large scale desalination projects have been realised.

Between 2016 and 2021, GMR Data forecast that the 5 year CAGR growth, in the desalination sector, will fall below 5% for the first time in 20 years as some ME countries, that are key proponents of desalination projects, face uncertain financial landscapes, particularly in relation to the expected fluctuation of oil prices across the next 5-10 years.

Between 2021 and 2026 many global regions will move away from brand new projects, instead focusing on new technology on existing sites. Many countries will have spent money on long term projects; Saudi Arabia, Israel, Australia and the US, for example, and are likely to upgrade existing plants as opposed to starting new projects. Regions such as Europe and North Africa are likely to offer very little growth in the global desalination sector by 2026.

The Global Desalination Market to 2026 contains an in depth SWOT analysis chapter that discusses the key Strengths, Weaknesses, opportunities and Threats that the Global Desalination Market will face across 2016-2026. Factors such as Water Scarcity, Financial Costs and new Research and Development are all weighed up in the course of the SWOT chapter.

The report concludes with transcripts from interviews with experts in the desalination sector; Energy Recovery Inc. (ERI) a US company that is at the forefront of energy reduction. ERI products are installed at the majority of large scale desalination projects globally.

Our other published interview is with key Iranian desalination outfit Noor Vijeh Company (NVCo). NVCo is the largest private investor in reverse osmosis in Iran, a country that is emerging onto the international scene with many key MNCs opening up trade links with the country across numerous sectors.
