Demand for Fresh Water on the Rise
The Middle East & Africa region is one of the driest in the world, with only 2% of the world’s renewable water supply. The demand for water in this region is growing at a fast pace owing to the increasing agricultural activities, which consumes about 87% of all freshwater resources. In addition, the demand for water treatment resulted in an increased quantity of waste. Improved technologies and smart water grid legislatures have been developed to process waste, such as concentrated industrial wastewater, brine from desalination, and sludge from municipal treatment plants, more as a resource, with associated research focus on resource recovery. These factors, in turn, are projected to boost the market in the region.
Desalination Industry is One of the Largest
Desalination is mainly used to extract minerals from saline water. Most of the recent applications of desalination are focused on providing fresh water. The Middle East region happens to be the home for one of the most significant multi-layered aquifer systems in the world, with the system centered mostly in the Arabian Peninsula, particularly north-west Saudi Arabia, stretching out to north-west Jordan in part. However, water quality throughout this aquifer varies and happens to be very saline in places, due to excessive withdrawals and insufficient replenishment. This led to an increased reliance on desalination in the region, and Saudi Arabia is heavily dependent on desalination for its water resources, among the other Gulf Cooperation Council countries.
United Arab Emirates is one of the Largest Market
The United Arab Emirates is one of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries’ which continues to irrigate, drawing water in from the ground (exhaustible aquifers), and from rivers down mountain slopes. This is due to the increase in population, domestic water consumption, and temperatures (and a subsequent change in evaporation, one of the largest usurpers of water in the Middle Eastern desert climates). Furthermore, industrial production in the United Arab Emirates is increasing in response to measures adopted by the government to diversify the economy. These factors are driving the United Arab Emirates membrane water treatment chemicals market.
