Summary

Table of Contents

This BCC Research report evaluates the global markets for saline water desalination plants. It analyzes the water needs of 18 countries in five world regions. Known projects by country for the next five years are presented, along with estimated capacity additions, market values and growth rates for each world region. Forecasts provided for the period 2015-2020.

Use this report to:

Assess the roles that desalination can play now and in the future of water treatment technology.
Gain information on the technical aspects of both thermal and membrane desalination processes.
Learn about the known projects by country for the next five years, along with estimated capacity additions, market values, and growth rates for each world region.
Analyze the global water resource status and the growing gap between freshwater resources and water demand from all sectors.

Highlights

The global cumulative investments in desalination plants reached roughly $21.4 billion in 2015 and should reach nearly $48.2 billion by 2020, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.6%.
Cumulative investments in reverse osmosis (RO) reached roughly $17.3 billion in 2015 and should reach nearly $42.1 billion by 2020, a CAGR of 19.5% during the period of 2015 to 2020.
Cumulative investments in multistage flash (MSF) distillation reached $2.4 billion in 2015 and should reach $3.2 bilion by 2020, a CAGR of 6.1%.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This comprehensive technology market research report evaluates the global market for saline water desalination plants. The goals are to provide meaningful information, unbiased analysis, and an assessment of the roles that desalination can play now and in the future of water treatment technology. Technical aspects of both thermal and membrane desalination processes are outlined, as well as a few alternative techniques that may be viable in the future. The report analyzes the water needs of 18 countries in five world regions. Known projects by country for the next five years are presented, along with estimated capacity additions, market values, and growth rates for each world region.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

This report updates a previous BCC Research report on the same topic that waspublished in 2013. The need for pure water is a problem of global proportions and has become even more urgent since the earlier report became available. Water treatment is an issue of global concern as individuals, communities, industries, countries, and national institutions strive for ways to keep this essential resource available and suitable for use.

Increasingly, desalination systems are selected as an effective option to deliver pure water to the public by transforming saline, brackish, and contaminated water into useable and/or potable products. In part, this increased demand drives the development of technical advances in desalination processes and parallel price drops in the processes, especially membrane-based methods. These advances have made desalination systems affordable for countries that were previously unable to consider the possibility, thus creating a robust and rapidly growing market in which projects and corporate developments are constantly evolving.
