Executive Summary

The Desalination & Reuse sector will be a resilient market through and after the COVID-19 crisis. Strong fundamental drivers such as worsening water scarcity and increasing industrial water demand will continue to drive growth across the sector. With the desalination project boom in the Middle East looking to pick back up again after a short delay, and water reuse high on the agenda in China and the USA, there are plenty of opportunities for businesses that can position themselves to capitalise on these high growth markets. The same drivers are leading to increasing interest in brine concentration technologies such as evaporators and crystallisers from industry.

Growing regulations on wastewater discharge across the USA, China, India and Europe are driving growth for the application of new technologies, whilst long-term trends of population growth, urbanisation and industrialisation mean that demand for reuse will remain strong over the next few years.

Capitalising on the opportunities created is key and will require an in-depth knowledge of international markets, extensive forecast data for market size, growth and distribution of activity. GWI’s Desal & Reuse report offers the granular forecasts to 2025, market insights and competitor intelligence needed to ensure you get the most out of this growing market.
