Report Scope

Desalination plants range from the very small to large industrial or municipal facilities. This study discusses the status of global water resources and the growing gap between freshwater resources and water demand from all sectors. Within this global context, the specific growth drivers for and the challenges related to the evolution of the desalination equipment market are presented.

A technical overview of the primary desalination technologies is provided, as well as an overview of novel distillation methods. The report presents the hypothetical unit cost of water as produced by the primary technologies as well as the sensitivity of that cost to variations in economic parameters.

The report also features a separate section highlighting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the seawater and brackish water desalination market at the global level. The section covers the pandemic’s disruptions on the demand and supply of the technologies used for desalination and surveys the strategic investments taken by governments to boost the growth of the market globally.

A separate section on the Russia-Ukraine war is also included. This section provides a detailed analysis of the impact of this conflict on the seawater and brackish water desalination market.

The market size and estimations are provided in terms of value ($ millions), with 2021 serving as the base year and market forecasts given for the period 2022 to 2027. In addition, installed capacities of desalinated water (reported in thousand m3/day) are provided with projections through 2027. Regional-level market sizes, with respect to technology and application, are also provided. The impact of COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war have been factored into the estimates of market size.
