Global renewable energy powered water desalination systems market reached US$ 2.3 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 4.9 bllion by 2030, growing with a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period 2023-2030.
The market for water desalination systems powered by renewable energy is divided into submarkets depending on system capacity, geography, end-user and technology type. Reverse osmosis (RO), multi-stage flash (MSF), multi-effect distillation (MED), electrodialysis (ED) and other techniques are the main technologies employed in these systems.
The promotion of sustainable technology and renewable energy has been led by European nations. The European Union (EU) has established lofty goals for renewable energy and has been promoting the use of desalination systems powered by renewable energy through policy support and financial incentives.
For instance, the EU's Horizon 2020 programme supported a number of desalination and renewable energy-related research and innovation initiatives. Therefore, Europe accounts for nearly 1/3rd of the global share.
Accelerating Adoption of Solar-Powered Desalination Systems Fuels Global Growth
The use of solar-powered desalination devices reduces reliance on outside energy sources like fossil fuels or grid electricity by enabling areas with plentiful solar resources to use their own renewable energy for the desalination of water. Desalination projects are more durable and long-lasting in distant or off-grid areas thanks to their energy independence, which encourages their adoption.
For instance, to give its citizens a dependable source of drinking water, the Australian town of Port Augusta is putting into practice a solar-powered desalination plant. The initiative lessens dependency on imported water and conventional energy sources by harnessing solar energy to power the desalination plant.
Technological Advancements and Environmental Sustainability
The use of desalination systems powered by renewable energy has been prompted by the global trend towards clean energy sources and sustainable practises. Environmental sustainability is given top priority by governments and organisations around the world and the use of renewable energy technology for water desalination is encouraged.
For instance, In order to desalinate seawater, the Masdar Solar Desalination Plant in the United Arab Emirates combines reverse osmosis technology with photovoltaic solar panels. The plant reduces carbon emissions and aids in the preservation of water supplies in arid areas by utilizing solar energy.
High Initial Capital Costs
Financially, renewable energy-powered desalination projects may be more difficult to implement than traditional desalination techniques or other water supply alternatives because of the large initial capital expenditures. Market expansion may be slowed by investors' and project developers' reluctance to invest in ventures with protracted payback times or uncertain returns on investment.
The pandemic's global limitations and lockdowns caused supply chains to break down, which affected the supply of parts and equipment required for desalination systems powered by renewable energy sources. Supply chain interruptions have been seen to cause project implementation delays and cost increases. Project schedules have been pushed back as a result of social segregation policies, travel restrictions and workforce constraints. Desalination projects fueled by renewable energy have had difficulties getting underway and completed due to ineffective on-site work and collaboration.
The global renewable energy powered water desalination systems market is segmented based on technology type, application, end-user and region.
Continuous Technological Advancements Drives the Global Segmental Growth
To enhance the functionality and energy efficiency of RO systems, manufacturers continually spend in R&D. The use of improved membranes with better salt rejection rates and reduced energy requirements has recently been developed, which lowers operational costs and boosts system reliability. Therefore, reverse osmosis systems technology type segment is expected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecasted period.
Harnessing Solar Power to Tackle Wastewater Challenges in the U.S. Oil and Gas Industry
The North American market for renewable energy-powered desalination systems in the oil and gas industry is experiencing significant growth, driven by the harnessing of solar power to tackle wastewater challenges. In U.S., Several hundred billion gallons of wastewater are created each year as a result of oil and gas extraction. Solar-powered desalination systems can help clean this water, making it suitable for a variety of domestic and industrial uses. Therefore, U.S. is contributing more than 3/4th of the regional shares during the forecasted period.
The major global players include: Abengoa Water, Acciona S.A., Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co., Ltd., Suez Water Technologies & Solutions, Aquatech International LLC, Hyflux Ltd., Veolia Water Technologies, General Electric Company, Fisia Italimpianti S.p.A. and Xylem Inc.
