Future Prospects For Leading Companies

Report Details

Desalination systems have long been an expensive solution to water scarcity issues whose commercialisation was limited to hydrocarbon-rich countries lacking natural water resources: in other words, to Middle East nations. The market landscape, however, has changed over the last 20 years. Decades of research and technological improvements have greatly increased the energy efficiency of thermal desalination plants, helping bring down operating costs. Meanwhile, membrane-based desalination has changed the economics of the sector radically, making desalination more affordable and less dependent on thermal energy sources.

These factors, coupled with demographic trends in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia Pacific, have boosted the addition of desalination capacity worldwide in the 2000s. Weakened by the 2008-2009 financial crisis, the subsequent world economic slowdown, the 2011 revolutions in North Africa and the drop in new capacity additions after the 2000's boom, the desalination market reached its lowest point in a decade in 2013. The solidity of the underlying market fundamentals, however, suggests that the desalination industry will enter a new phase of growth in 2014.

Visiongain calculates that the global desalination market will be worth $3,917m by the end of this 2014. This includes the market estimates for reverse osmosis (RO); multi-effect distillation (MED); multi-stage flash (MSF); electrodialysis (ED), electrodeionisation (EDI) and electrodialysis reversal (EDR); and the aggregated CAPEX on hybrid plants or other technologies.
