GIA announces the launch of a comprehensive primary research program studying the global market for “Desalination Components and Technologies”. The soon to be released report identifies shortages in supply of fresh water and breakthrough technology developments in desalination, as key market driving forces.

Desalination Components and Technologies: A Global Multi-Client Research Initiative

Follow us on LinkedIn – GIA invites senior industry executives, domain experts, technologists and market strategists to participate in a comprehensive global research initiative studying the Desalination Components and Technologies markets. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as advancements in seawater desalination technologies and reductions in the cost of desalination equipment; growing regulatory driven need for desalination of industrial and municipal effluents; increased pressure on potable water as a result of growing population and contamination of underground water; rapid industrialization in developing countries and the ensuing rise in the use of water in manufacturing.

Defined as removal of salt/brine and other minerals from seawater and industrial effluent for human and/or industrial/agricultural consumption, desalination components and technologies are forecast to witness strong growth. The growing need for reclamation of waste water is a key factor driving growth in the market. Limitations of currently available water treatment technologies with regard to the level of water that can be treated results in the loss of billions of gallons of water that can be reused. Rising water costs as a result of shortages in water supply has coerced most industrial plants like bottling plants to harness value from lost water. The focus on converting lost water into pure and clean usable water is bringing wastewater streams into the spotlight creating attractive market opportunities for desalination components, equipment and technologies. Poised to benefit are technology innovations which enable reuse of waste water with over a 90% water recovery rate. Stricter regulations for protection of water resources are helping drive the focus on desalination of industrial saline water.

Increasing per-capita water usage and shortages in supply of natural fresh water is throwing the focus on desalination of seawater in most countries across the globe. Middle-East is forecast to emerge as a major market for desalination technologies. Promising desalination technologies include multi-stage flash (MSF) distillation, multiple-effect distillation (MED), vapor compression distillation desalination, reverse osmosis desalination, Potabilization, and freezing desalination, among others. Increased investments in desalination research and development will additionally benefit the market. Attracting strong investments are R&D projects dedicated towards developing desalination equipment designed to use less energy, given the escalating energy costs. Also poised to benefit are fuel cell based desalination systems and solar desalination equipment. Newer breakthroughs in desalination technologies like microbial desalination cell (MDC) will additionally help the market attract venture capital funds.

In the coming years, the water desalination market is expected to witness massive capacity additions in various parts of the world, particularly in the GCC region, which will drive demand for a host of equipment/components like filters and pumps. The study estimates Desalination Components and Technologies to be a multi-million dollar market worldwide, while more precise market-size and growth projections for a 14-year period will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.

The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design, will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modeled to offer precise and unbiased, actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.

Developed for Manufactures, Strategic Planners, Business Development Executives, Management Consultants, Investment Bankers, Consulting Firms, Marketing & Sales Executives, C-Level Decision Makers, Market Strategists and Technology Domain Experts, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space and offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
