The dynamics between desalination, reuse and traditional water sources depend heavily on differing regulations, costs and political climates from local to regional contexts. Local water scarcity issues, along with water reuse and recycling policies that can be difficult to design and implement, meaning that navigating this fragmented market remains a challenge.  However, with new technologies, shifting public opinion and developing water recycling programs to enhance existing utility systems, there are now major opportunities to provide cost-effective and sustainable innovative solutions. Understanding these solutions will become increasingly critical as more competitors enter the market.

Desalination & Water Reuse will provide an in-depth analysis of both the municipal and industry sectors showing the main drivers, trends, and restraints affecting the market for advanced treatment technologies for desalination and reuse in each country. It will tell you where the best prospects are, who is active in the market and what they are doing. In addition, it will compare desalination and reuse, their drivers and differences, and why utilities would choose one over the other.

This report compares emerging technologies in this trend towards alternative water sources, which are opening up new opportunities for both municipal and industry sectors. The type of reuse and availability of desalination varies from region to region, and this report will identify the most common treatment technologies in each area/country and how the location for desalination and reuse affects this, so you can tailor the right solution for the right market.

This report is an essential guide for EPC contractors to understand the client’s needs, developers to identify procurement models, financing requirements and which projects are more likely to gain traction, in each region, and for end users to find out what alternative solutions are available based on their unique circumstances.

The report will cover the most relevant applications of the market including; direct potable reuse, indirect potable reuse, non-potable use, industrial, groundwater recharge, surface water enhancement and recreational applications.

Data and interviews behind this report make use of DesalData – GWI’s industry renowned network and desalination tracking database – making it the most comprehensive and reliable report on the market.


Key Features

Report Includes:

Global Overview - The desalination and water reuse sector is incredibly fragmented; this report is the only tool that explains the different approaches in specific regions, and defines and compares which solution is most beneficial. It will tell you which reuse applications are viable in each country and how regional water quality standards are affecting the uptake of desalination and reuse projects. In addition, it will uncover the most recent trends such as indirect potable reuse reclaimed water for industrial use.

Technologies - in-depth analysis and comparisons of core and emerging technologies and their regional considerations in desalination and reuse for both municipal and industry sectors. Find out how they meet industry needs and what place they have in the market, the recent trends and where they are commonly adopted. We will show you the clear trends in the reuse market in terms of the treatment technologies used and the destination of reuse water.

Global market forecasts and market size data - We will show the growth in desalination and reuse capacity and how this capacity breaks down by technology, end user and procurement model. We will also give a breakdown of installed capacity by technology type, procurement model, and reuse destination.

Country-by-country profiles - covering municipal and industrial desalination and reuse, showing where the most interesting developments are taking place from the Middle East to China, so you can identify the main trends and opportunities and plan your strategy for involvement. 

Plants and Project Opportunities - We will list the top plants and major upcoming projects for both utilities and industrial desalination and reuse, helping you to understand the need for desalination as a water supply solution in a certain country, the procurement models they use, and how you can access the market.

Industry - We show you how increased pressure on industry to find alternative clean water sources, reducing freshwater withdrawals and conforming to tightening regulations are driving the adoption of zero liquid discharge practices, municipal wastewater reclamation for industrial use and reuse of produced/flowback water in the North American Oil and Gas market. This report will show you the clear trends in the treatment technologies and the industry methods used.

 


Market Drivers and Challenges

Water scarcity & regional water resources - We explore how different climates and regions affect the adoption of desalination and reuse – such as how arid regions in the Middle East have come to rely on desalination and technology to provide municipal water, and how scarcity impacts uptake of alternative water sources in various regions. 

Cost - We explore how local regulations, availability of water resources, procurement models, and political situation affect the costs of desalination and reuse projects. We pinpoint the regions where water reuse is considered a cheaper alternative, and where desalination projects are preferred despite the increased costs. 

Regulations - There are numerous local regulations restricting where recycled water can be used. This report helps you to navigate the regulations surrounding recycled water in each country, including what applications are permitted, water quality requirements, and what regulations mean for treatment technologies.

Public Perceptions - Reclaimed water is considered safe when appropriately used, although there are still public concerns over using reclaimed water and government policies on treatment. In some regions, opinion remains a challenge but in other regions there is a drive towards changing public perceptions, promising indirect and direct reuse opportunities in the future.  This report will tell you which reuse applications are viable in each country.
