Global Water Desalination Equipment Market Outlook, and Revenue Forecast 2022-2028: Ken Research

Market Overview

Water Desalination is the process of removing minerals such as salt from saline water to make it fit to use. The three main sources of saline water are seawater, brackish water, and river water. Water desalination equipment manufacturers develop different types of technologies for desalination purposes such as Reverse osmosis (RO), Multi-stage Flash (MSF) Distillation, Multi-effect Distillation (MED), and more that is mainly used in municipal and industrial application all around the globe.

According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Water Desalination Equipment Market was valued at ~US$ 7 billion in 2017. It is estimated to be ~US$ 10 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach a market size of ~US$ 16 billion by 2028 growing with a CAGR of ~8% during 2022 to 2028.

Global Water Desalination Equipment Market

The global market for water desalination equipment is expanding owing to water scarcity which means the lack of freshwater resources to provide the regular demand for water consumption for public use.

  • According to United Nations, which is an intergovernmental organization that fosters friendly ties between countries and maintains global peace and security stated that around 700 million people from more than 43 countries all around the globe are affected by water scarcity.
  • Environmental issues due to Brine Discharge, which is a remnant of a successful desalination process is one of the biggest challenge faced by the global desalination equipment market.
  • As the installation cost of the brine treatment system is significantly high, thus companies prefer to directly dump the brine back into the sea, which negatively affects the marine flora and fauna.
  • Due to the suspension of production operations in a number of industrial sectors, including Water Desalination Equipment manufacturing facilities, the COVID-19 pandemic hindered the growth of the Global Water Desalination Equipment Market. As a result, production showed a decline in the Water Desalination Equipment market.

Key Trends by Market Segment

By Technology:  The Reverse Osmosis segment held the largest market share of the Global Water Desalination Equipment Market in 2021.

  • Reverse Osmosis uses membrane separation equipment for the water desalination process, which is purely physical and less expensive as compared to other technologies.
  • In reverse osmosis technology, the saline water is passed through a membrane, which filters salt and other minerals producing freshwater for generic use.
Global Water Desalination Equipment Industry

By Source: The Seawater segment accounted for the largest market share in the source segment in 2021.

  • The growth is primarily due to the easy availability of seawater and the rise in the seawater desalination plants for dealing with water scarcity.
  • In the desalination process the seawater is pumped directly into the desalination plant and several technologies such as reverse osmosis and multi-effect distillation are used to remove several minerals such as sodium, chlorine, magnesium, and more to convert the seawater into freshwater.
Global Water Desalination Equipment Sector

By Application: The Municipal segment held the largest market share in 2021 of the global Water Desalination Equipment Market.

  • Municipality plays a critical role, owing to the surge in demand for fresh water from the growing population, rapid urbanization, and stringent environmental regulations drive the need for clean and safe water for consumption.
  • Water desalination is required by municipalities to supplement reserves by recovering wastewater, groundwater, and seawater, which can be supplied for domestic usage and others.

By Geography: LAME Accounted for the largest market share among all regions within the total Global Water Desalination Equipment Market in 2021.

  • The growth is primarily due to the high industrialization and initiatives taken by countries like Saudi Arabia, Israel, and United Arab Emirates to deal with water scarcity.
  • Israel currently has the world largest water desalination plant in the world, which has a capacity of 624,000m ³/day and uses technology such as seawater reverse osmosis for desalination purposes.
