DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q9jttr/water) has announced the addition of the "Water Desalination Equipment Market By Technology, By Application, By Products, and By Geography - Global Trends and Forecasts (2013-2018)" report to their offering.
The global water desalination equipment market is estimated to reach $15,274 million by 2018, with a projected CAGR of 9.1%, indicating a high demand in municipal and industrial applications
Desalination has become an appealing option that addresses dwindling fresh water supplies as countries seek solutions on how to tackle water scarcity. In addition to this, the industries have done much to lower the cost of desalination. Advances in technology have led to increased energy efficiency, where greater economies of scale have also helped lower costs helping the growth of the overall water desalination equipment market.
The increase in urbanization and the population living in cities and towns, and the rise in the price of oil, has put pressure on traditional groundwater supplies, and has helped drive the desalination market dramatically over the years. The failure to acquire current water resources, lack of alternatives to desalination, increasing industrialized agriculture by exploiting natural resources, and acceptance of governments to invest in R&D to purchase desalination plants, has increased the desalination equipment demand.
Important key components of water desalination are as follows:
- Drinking-water distribution
- Raw water supply
- Treatment process including desalination
- Imported supply (may require additional treatment)
- Support services (bldg., staff, vehicles)
- Residual management
The demand for desalination as a substitute for fresh-water supply is growing constantly with its increased acceptance. The desalination process has found increased application in the municipal sector as well as the industrial sectors of oil and gas, chemicals, power, and others.
The desalination equipment demand has been estimated from the demand side in terms of value ($million). The report also discusses the drivers, restraints, and opportunities of the equipment market which is directly dependent on the global desalination market. The report also tracks the activities of dominant market players and the strategies adopted by them through their expansions, mergers & acquisitions, and new-product launches.
