BMI View: We have substantially expanded our forecasts for the Saudi Arabian water sector, and now cover losses, desalinated water production and non-mains consumption. These additions have resulted in the revision of our existing forecasts, and we now 1.5% growth annually in extraction between 2015 and 2018, a 1.3% growth in consumption, and decline in water losses reaching as much as 4% in 2018, as investment into infrastructure and improved regulatory overviews start to bear fruit.

The Saudi Arabian water sector remains one of the most active in the region and offers some of the greatest opportunities to private sector participants. In particular, the continued growth in desalination projects and ongoing water reclamation developments offer significant potential. However, the country continues to be constrained by limited fresh water resources and rising domestic and industrial demand. Desalination is expensive and requires vast electricity resources. Moreover, electricity generation itself uses significant volumes of water in the cooling processes for thermal generation, and although Saudi Arabia is increasing its solar generation, additional industrial demands are weighing on water resources.
