Category: Investment, Water

DUBLIN - April 14, 2016 (www.waternewswire.com) Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Seawater and Brackish Water Desalination" report to their offering.

The global cumulative investments in desalination plants reached roughly $21.4 billion in 2015 and should reach nearly $48.2 billion by 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.6%.

Desalination plants range from the very small to large industrial or municipal facilities. This report assesses the market for the larger facilities - those with a daily capacity of 1,000 or more cubic meters of produced water. The study discusses the global water resource status 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 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.

Forecasts of annual and cumulative capital investments in desalination plants likely to begin operation during the forecast period of 2015 to 2020 are given. These forecasts include global investments by technology and by region, as well as regional forecasts by technology.
