Global markets for seawater and brackish water desalination plants to reach $7.2 billion by 2018

Growing populations, increasing demand for water, and diminishing freshwater sources as a result of environmental degradation and drought have created shortages of water across the world. With desalination, brackish water and seawater represent a new and potentially unlimited supply of high-quality water. The ongoing water shortage crisis, increased research and development (R&D) spending, and parallel cost reductions in desalination processes will drive this market for the foreseeable future.

BCC Research provides an in-depth analysis of the global market for seawater and brackish water desalination plants through its report Seawater and Brackish Water Desalination. According to the report, this market is estimated at $4.1 billion in 2013. BCC Research projects the market to reach $7.2 billion in 2018, and register a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.9% for the period 2013 to 2018.
