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.

The ultrafiltration market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 15.0% from 2018 to 2023. The ultrafiltration market is projected to grow from USD 1,064.0 million in 2018 to USD 2,140.1 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 15.0% from 2018 to 2023. The scarcity of pure water has provided opportunities for ultrafiltration in brackish...
Desalination is one of many technologies for water supply. In 2018 desalination accounted for 13.9% of the capex for municipal and industrial water supply and the cumulative desalination plants delivered less than 1% of the supply of water. It is the most expensive form of delivering fresh water and it can cause serious environmental...
