'Global desalination market to be worth $18.37bn in 2012' says Visiongain report

Press Release   •   Oct 24, 2012 16:51 BST

The lead analyst of the global desalination report commented that ‘Desalination is a growing market for both governments and the private sector, as water scarcity becomes an ever more pressing issue in many regions of the world. While the prolific growth in the desalination market forecast a few years back is no longer expected, population and industrial growth will still drive demand for purified water. Desalination projects remain a priority for economic growth particularly in arid or densely populated regions.’

The report contains 158 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends within the desalination market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2012-2022 in terms of value (US$) for the global desalination market, breaking this down into five submarkets (Reverse & Forward Osmosis, Multi Stage Flash, Multi Effect Distillation, Electrodialysis & Electro deionisation, as well as Alternative & Hybrid Desalination Technologies).
