Water Desalination Pumps Market Market Outlook:
The global water desalination pumps market was valued at USD 2,655.7 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 4,062.3 million by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period. The Water Desalination Pumps market is projected to expand at a rapid pace globally, owing to urbanization and increasing population. Increasing the capacity of seawater desalination will raise the need for water desalination pumps, which will allow desalination facilities to operate more efficiently.
Desalination is an important part of the wastewater and water industry. Many venders are increasing their expenditure in desalination plants, as the need of equipment of energy-efficient is increasing for serving the growing demand for water. Globally, regulatory bodies implemented various stringent regulations and guidelines for energy efficiency.
Stringent regulations and advancement in energy-efficient pumps for decreasing consumption of energy are factors responsible for forcing industrial operators to develop and update their existing desalination pumping systems to new energy-efficient pumps.
The filtered water quality depends on various factors such as water temperature, water salinity, pressure and membrane permeation number, and salt content. Water desalination pumps are used for decreasing pressure and maintaining proper supply of potable and clean water.
In desalination plants, pumps have different applications in water discharge, pre-treatment process, seawater intake, reverse osmosis, and others.
Around 70% of water is present on the earth, out of which only 3% is safe and fresh for drinking with 1% accessible for human use. Around 67% is covered with seawater, which is not consumable directly, due to its salinity. Hence, the water desalination process is considered. Water desalination pumps are used to convert seawater into safe and potable water.
Globally, scarcity of water is affecting many regions. Governments of several countries are introducing various regulations for reusing and recycling of water, largely in industries.
Water desalination is a feasible solution to the scarcity of water. Different processes in desalination include flash distillation, solar evaporation, vacuum distillation, multiple effect distillation, and reverse osmosis. Using these processes, clean and potable water is produced by filtering seawater (salinity range between 30,000 and 45,000 mg/L) and brackish water (salt content, <10,000 mg/L).
Water Desalination Pumps Market Market Dynamics
Water Desalination Pumps are expected to be popular among end-users during the forecast period. Government initiatives and investments to enhance the capacity of desalination plants, as well as forthcoming projects, drive the demand for water desalination pumps throughout the region over the projected period.
Industrial buyers are using modern desalination pump equipment instead of the conventional method of manufacturing for reducing maintenance and operational costs and saving energy, which is projected to boost the demand for water desalination pumps during the forecast period.
Research & development in desalination applications in pre-treatment process, reverse osmosis, seawater intake, and water discharge created an opportunity for new designs and developments, which is projected to fuel the market in the coming years.
Rising demand for Intelligent pumps:
Water treatment is in high demand in underdeveloped nations where fresh water supply is limited. Water desalination pumps are in high demand, as providing clean and drinkable water to large population poses a concern. Increasing seawater desalination capacity results in rising demand for water desalination pumps to carry out efficient operations in desalination plants.
An intelligent pump system controls the flow and pressure of the water. This pump aids in the desalination of water. Rising need for intelligent pump systems drives the water desalination pumps market. Renovation of desalination facilities and pumping systems to improve output raises demand for water desalination pumps.
Environmental concerns restrain the market. Emission of highly concentrated brine back into the sea, as well as chemical additives during treatment, has been a major source of concern for environmentalists. This has a substantial impact on the biological system of the sea. Infrastructure of desalination plants, which include installation of water intake infrastructure and a network of pipelines for transferring feed water to the processing plant, represent a threat to ecologically sensitive areas. These factors are expected have a significant influence on the market for desalination pumps.
Water Desalination Pumps Market Segmental Outlook
Based on types, the water desalination pumps market is bifurcated into centrifugal pumps and positive displacement pumps. Over the projected period, the centrifugal pumps segment is expected to dominate the market. Centrifugal pumps allow manufacturers and processors to transfer a wide variety of fluids, such as those that quickly cause corrosion in other pumps.
The positive displacement pumps segment is expected to expand at a significant CAGR, as the capacity of a positive displacement pump to produce a steady flow rate is its main feature. When the pressure varies, the flow rate of a positive displacement pump remains constant.
In terms of applications, the water desalination pumps market is segmented into pre-treatment, post-treatment, water-intake, in-process, and water withdrawal. The pre-treatment segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period, due to its advantages such as the pretreatment system removes particles, debris, bacteria, suspended solids, and silt from the saltwater supply.
Pre-treatments require low maintenance and offer high return on investment. These factors are projected to propel the segment in the coming years.
Based on pressure, the water desalination pumps market is bifurcated into low pressure and high pressure. Over the projected period, the high pressure segment is expected to dominate the market.
High pressure pumps provide high efficiency rates as compared to low pressure pumps. High pressure pumps require low maintenance and offer high return on investment, as high pressure pumps are about half size of competing pumps. These factors are projected to propel the segment in the coming years.
Water Desalination Pumps Market Region Wise Outlook
Based on regions, the global water desalination pumps market is fragmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Middle East & Africa (MEA) accounted for a significant share of the market in 2020 and the market in regions such as Asia Pacific (APAC) and North America is anticipated to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period.
The Middle East & Africa dominate the global market for water desalination pumps. In the forecast period, government initiatives and investments to expand the capacity of desalination plants and planned projects are expected to increase the demand for water desalination pumps in the region.
Over the forecast period, several factors, such as the expanding industrial sector and increased investments in the water infrastructure sector, are anticipated to boost the demand for water desalination pumps in North America. Europe holds a substantial share of the market during the forecast period, due to rapid industrialization in the region.
China dominates the water desalination pump market in APAC in terms of production and sales, with roughly 30% lower pricing than manufacturers in other regions, resulting in APAC being a prominent water desalination pump manufacturing market.
