Lack of Freshwater Resources
The demand for fresh water is rising worldwide. According to the United Nations World Water Development Report 2015, the world will experience a 40% deficit in water supply by 2030. The global demand for “blue” water excluding water demand in rain-fed agriculture will increase by 55% from 2000 to 2050. The Middle East & Africa is one of the driest regions, having only 2% of the world’s renewable water supply. The demand for water in this region is growing at a fast pace owing to increasing agricultural activities, which consumes about 87% of all freshwater resources. The rising demand for fresh water will augment the membrane water treatment market predominantly in municipal and industrial water treatment facilities. Membrane bio-reactor, reverse osmosis, micro, ultra, and nanofiltration are the widely accepted membrane technologies globally, for purifying water. Therefore, rising demand for fresh water will drive the market during the forecast period.
Reverse Osmosis - The Driving Technology
Reverse osmosis (RO) is one of the major membrane waste water treatment processes in the 21st century. It is a membrane separation process, which prominently uses pressure to force a solution through a membrane that holds the solute and lets the pure solvent to pass. This layer is designed specially for water, as a solvent. It is mainly used for desalination of seawater, and it is also efficient in separating solids, bacteria, and other solvents. Reverse osmosis in the Saudi Arabia region is mainly used as an alternative to traditional techniques like evaporation and distillation. With the RO technology replacing traditional technologies, it is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period.
Saudi Arabia is One of the Largest Market
Saudi Arabia adopted water reuse technologies due to its cost and energy efficiency as compared with that of desalination and water transportation. The water reuse applications are mainly used in non-potable uses, industrial recycling, and groundwater recharge. Furthermore, wastewater has become a major water resource for different water reuse purposes, and also as a source of nutrients and organic constituents, which are potential sources of energy in the region. The increase in the demand for reused water is driving the Saudi Arabian membrane waste water treatment market.
