Growth Factors

Factors including rapid urbanization, growing population, and rising water scarcity in several parts of the world are expected to drive the demand for water desalination equipment over the forecast period. During the COVID-19 pandemic, various construction sites and manufacturing companies were shut in 2020, resulting in hampering the demand for water desalination equipment. However, as the world has started returning to normalcy from the beginning of 2021, the demand for water desalination equipment is expected to witness growth as the governments of various countries are planning to invest in water treatment solutions to meet water scarcity issues.

The rising adoption of renewable energy to desalinate water is gaining traction in the market as the conventional systems require a considerable amount of energy to function, making them expensive and impracticable for usage in underdeveloped countries. Such developments are expected to drive the demand for water desalination equipment over the forecast period.

By Source Analysis

The seawater segment led the market and accounted for over 55.0% share of the global revenue in 2020. The increasing scarcity of potable water is projected to act as the major factor for boosting the demand for seawater desalination.

In the desalination process, seawater is pumped into the plant and pretreated, wherein the suspended solids and other particles are removed through filtration. Post this stage, water is transferred for removing the salinity through reverse osmosis or thermal distillation.

The brackish water segment is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 8.2% over the forecast period. The demand for brackish water desalination equipment is expected to be the highest in North America, South America, and Asia Pacific due to the presence of rich sources of brackish water that can be used for producing freshwater.

As compared to seawater, the main precedence of desalinating brackish groundwater is its high recovery rate. Seawater desalination yields approximately 50% freshwater, whereas brackish water yields approximately 90% freshwater.

By Application Analysis

The municipal segment led the market and accounted for over 51.0% share of the global revenue in 2020. The municipal sector is responsible for providing potable water to the urban population around the world. 

Increasing pollution of surface water and groundwater reserves has resulted in driving the demand for clean drinking water. In addition, rising water scarcity in arid regions is driving clean water demand globally. 

The industrial segment is likely to expand at the highest CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period. Rapid industrial expansion in developing nations, such as China, India, Malaysia, and Thailand, is expected to contribute to the expanding industrial demand for water desalination technology. 

The growing investments in R&D operations in the desalination sector have resulted in the use of waste generated by power plants and refineries to power desalination facilities. 

By Technology Analysis

The reverse osmosis led the market and accounted for more than 55.0% share of the global revenue in 2020. This is attributed to its properties such as easy processing, low installation cost, the ability to treat different types of feed water, and minimal use of chemicals.

Reverse osmosis (RO) involves forcing saline water through a semipermeable membrane that filters salt molecules, eliminating salt from the water and generating clean water. 

The Multi-stage Flash (MSF) distillation technology segment is likely to expand at a CAGR of 7.0% over the forecast period. Multi-effect distillation is a multi-effect process, wherein the feed water is evaporated and condensed multiple times at low pressure and temperature.

By Regional Analysis

The Middle East and Africa led the market and accounted for over 40.0% share of the global revenue in 2020. The growing per-capita consumption of water in the region, along with the growing population due to the increased immigration, is anticipated to boost the demand for water desalination equipment over the forecast period.

The construction sector in the Middle East is expected to witness significant growth with strong government support for infrastructure development, rising investments to enhance logistical connectivity.

Asia Pacific is likely to expand at a CAGR of 7.8% over the forecast period. Depleting groundwater levels, especially in countries such as Bangladesh and India, are further expected to lower the water availability in the region.

In China, factors including rapid industrialization and urbanization, coupled with the growing population, are expected to be the key drivers for the market in the country.
