Desalination systems are used to extract the salt or removal of salt from the sea water and produce water that is more suitable to human consumption, irrigation, and various industrial uses. The availability of fresh water for consumption is very low and is declining at a faster rate. With the rise in demand for fresh water, there is a need for an alternative source of fresh water. This problem can be solved by using desalination system, which turns the unusable sea water into fresh water, by removing the salt and various minerals from the sea water. Desalination system works by using either electrical, thermal, or chemical energy.
Unavailability of fresh water majorly drives the market. However, high cost of maintenance and huge capital investment restrain the market growth. Advancements in the desalination system leads to the development of new techniques such as solar distillation, thus making way for different market growth opportunities.
The market is segmented on the basis of desalination method, application, and geography. By desalination method, the market is classified into thermal desalination processes, membrane desalination processes, ion exchange, and others. Thermal desalination processes is further divided into multi-stage flash distillation (MSF), multiple effect distillation (MED), and vapor compression distillation (VCD). Membrane desalination processes is bifurcated into electrodialysis (ED)/electrodialysis reversal (EDR) and reverse osmosis (RO). By application, it is categorized into municipalities, island hotels & resorts, industries, emergency drinking water systems, off-shore platforms and others (ships and military). By geography, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA.
