World Water Desalination

Global water desalination demand will grow 9.1 percent annually through 2013. The Africa/Mideast region will remain the dominant market while the Asia/Pacific region grows the fastest. Technologies such as reverse osmosis membranes and multiple-effect distillation will increase market share.

This study analyzes the $8.4 billion world water desalination industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by technology, product (e.g., membrane systems, evaporators, pumps, filters, chemicals), service, world region (e.g., Africa/Mideast, Asia/Pacific, Europe, Caribbean), and for 17 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 76 industry players, including GE Water & Process Technologies, Doosan Heavy Industries and Veolia Environnement.
