Global Desalination & Water Sector Markets Analysis & Forecasts to 2022 Featuring The French Giants - Veolia, Suez and Saur

DUBLIN, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Desalination & Water Sector Report - 1st Edition - 2018" report has been added to's offering.

Desalination is one of many technologies for water supply. In 2018 desalination accounted for 13.9% of the capex for municipal and industrial water supply and the cumulative desalination plants delivered less than 1% of the supply of water. It is the most expensive form of delivering fresh water and it can cause serious environmental damage with discharges of brine into inland seas. So, when is it viable?

Desalination is sometimes the only solution for water supply in very demanding circumstances, either of water shortage or when ultra pure water is required for industrial process.

This report positions desalination in the maze of water flows and treatment technologies for water and waste, and examines competitive technologies.

    --  The water and waste sector is quantified In $ capex at all stages of the
        water value chain, including desalination as a segment within the total
    --  The water value chain is analysed in four segments - Water Supply
        (withdrawal including desalination/distribution/treatment) - Sanitation
        (collection/treatment) - Industry (including desalination) - Agriculture
        - Point-of-Use.
    --  Desalination sales are plotted from 1972 to 2017 and forecast to 2022 in
        m3/d and $ value.
    --  Comprehensive learning curve analysis is employed to predict price
    --  National markets are analysed in detail for all countries using
    --  End-user shares are given with a tabulation of the main customers in
        user countries.
    --  Membrane (ED, EDR & RO) and thermal (MSF, MED & VCD) desalination
        technologies are described, with global shares regional emphasis.
    --  Renewable energy desalination systems are witnessing an increasing
        interest worldwide and increasingly being adopted in some regions.
    --  Municipal and industrial wastewater treatments and their technologies
        are outlined and discussed, as recycling competitors to desalination
    --  The costs of desalination are analysed with the factors influencing
        them, past trends plotted and future projections made.
    --  Peak Salt - the environmental impact of desalination, is having a
        critical impact on some inland seas and waterways, notably the Red Sea
        and Persian Gulf.
    --  Desalination, like other major industrial processes, has environmental
        impacts that must be understood and mitigated.
    --  Future desalination technologies are outlined.
    --  The three French giants water and waste companies are profiled; Veolia,
        Suez and Saur.
    --  More than 150 participants in the industrial water treatment chemicals
        market in North America are listed.
    --  The 25 top desalination companies are listed.
    --  Leading reverse osmosis membrane manufacturers are listed, with
        materials, configuration (hollow, plated, spiral) and application.
