Desalination has become an appealing option that addresses dwindling fresh water supplies as countries seek solutions on how to tackle water scarcity caused by population growth, climate change, pollution, and industrial development. In addition to this, the industries have done much to lower the cost of desalination. Advances in technology have led to increased energy efficiency, where greater economies of scale have also helped lower costs helping the growth of the overall water desalination equipment market.

Desalination is a process that separates dissolved salts and other minerals from seawater or other salinized/brackish water. It is considered as a substitute and sustainable supply of fresh water with the required quantity and quality. The major benefit of desalination is that it can continue to deliver high-quality drinking water for consumption, even during periods of drought. It also provides an alternative source of water that will make our overall supply more diverse and less vulnerable to interruption. Currently, seawater desalination represents 62.4% of market in terms of input. Brackish water desalination represents another 20%, followed by river water desalination at 7.5%. Among various regions of the global water desalination equipment market, the Middle East will remain the dominant market.

Important key components of water desalination are as follows:

  • Drinking-water distribution
  • Raw water supply
  • Treatment process including desalination
  • Imported supply (may require additional treatment)
  • Support services (bldg., staff, vehicles)
  • Residual management

The increase in urbanization and the population living in cities and towns, and the rise in the price of oil, has put pressure on traditional groundwater supplies, and has helped drive the desalination market dramatically over the years. The failure to acquire current water resources, lack of alternatives to desalination, increasing industrialized agriculture by exploiting natural resources, and acceptance of governments to invest in R&D to purchase desalination plants, has increased the desalination equipment demand.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Multi-Stage Flash (MSF) are the most installed desalination technologies in which the recent developments found are: higher surface area per unit volume, higher salt rejection factors, extended lifespan of membranes, optimization of pre-treatment options, the use of energy recover devices (RO); optimization of process design, improvement in thermodynamic efficiency, use of newer materials, and new construction and transportation techniques (MSF).
Most MSF plants operate in oil-producing countries (Middle East), where RO is more common worldwide (Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, the U.S., and ROW).

The global water desalination equipment market is estimated to reach $15,274 million by 2018, with a projected CAGR of 9.1%, indicating a high demand in municipal and industrial applications.

Water desalination equipment is used to separate melted salts and various other minerals in seawater, brackish water, or any other water source, converting it to potable and/or fresh water. A major demand for this desalination process comes from municipal end-uses wherein this technology is used to convert available water resources into potable water for consumption. The industrial sectors such as oil and gas, and chemical and mining, incorporate the use of fresh water in their processes, which are also drivers for this market.

The global water desalination equipment market has witnessed an attractive growth owing to the increase in demand for desalinated water across the globe, as well as the increasing number of fresh-water applications. The biggest market for desalination equipment is held by the Middle East region amongst Europe, Asia-Pacific, the U.S., and the Rest of the World.
