WATER DESALINATION MARKET INSIGHTS

The global water desalination market was valued at USD 16.48 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 28.13 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 9.32%. Rapid industrialization and effective wastewater management systems are factors propelling the water desalination market growth.

Several other key growth-stimulating factors include technological innovations, such as developing hybrid desalination processes and multi-stage (MSF) distillation technology. Most of the demand arises for the desalination process from municipal end-uses. The municipal segment accounted for the lion's share in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 9% by 2026. 

An increase in freshwater demand and the increasing population in North America is expected to create growth opportunities for players in the region. The demand for desalination plants is expected to witness an exponential growth rate in North America. The GCC countries account for the largest desalination market; over the next 10 years, Saudi Arabia is estimated to spend around USD 80 billion on new projects.
