NEW YORK, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Desalination Technology Markets

Global Demand Drivers, Technology Issues, competitive Landscape, and Market Forecasts

Water scarcity, population and economic growth, pollution, and urbanization are all placing increased pressure on freshwater resources. The gap between the supply of freshwater and demand for water for industrial, agricultural, and domestic use is growing at an alarming pace – from California to Australia. At the same time, the cost of desalination has come down steadily. Desalination is becoming more affordable and more people can benefit from an almost unlimited resource – seawater.

The desalination plant supplier market is quite fragmented, despite a great deal of mergers and acquisitions activity during the last decade. And as reverse osmosis (RO) is increasingly adopted as the major desalination technology, the barriers to entry are being lowered. Of note, the top five suppliers captured a mere 25% of the market from 2007 to 2009. In contrast, however, the market for key desalination components is far more concentrated. For example, more than 65% of the market for RO membranes is controlled by three large players. The markets for high-pressure pumps and energy recovery devices are also quite concentrated. These competitive dynamics will be critically important as the stakes continue to increase in the rapidly-growing global desalination market.

This report analyzes emerging technologies and market opportunities in the global desalination industry. It explores a variety of market growth drivers including dwindling water resources, population, pollution, and falling desalination system costs. Key industry players are profiled and country-level market forecasts are provided for key global markets through 2016.

Key questions addressed:

- What are the key drivers, issues and challenges in the global desalination market?

- What are the key emerging technologies, and how will their capabilities and economics impact the desalination market in years to come?

- How does energy supply affect the demand for, and cost of, desalination systems?

- What is the market share of key desalination companies?

- How large is the desalination market opportunity in key countries around the world, and what factors will drive growth in each of those countries?
