Global Water Desalination Equipment Market and Industry Analysis, 2020

September 10, 2014 Leave a comment

Water shortage is biggest problem that is being faced by all developing as well as developed countries. Over the next few coming years, the shortage of water is expected to increase. Water desalination is a process of extracting clean water through the process of removing salt or saline from the salt water bodies. Desalination has now been practiced on large scale for more than 60 years. Continuous technological advancements have made this process more efficient and effective. The degree of salinity in the water is directly associated with the cost of desalination. Global corporations are selling and buying water rights at an extraordinary rate. Desalination equipment markets are majorly relevant to dry countries such as Australia and UAE which conventionally rely on the rainfall collection for providing drinking water.

Some of the major drivers for the escalation in the desalination equipment market are industrial development, climate change and rising population across the globe. The demand of water for serving different purposes seems to be the key driver for the growth of this market. Additional cost and development of supporting infrastructure for desalination system are the major constraints for the desalination equipment market. Industrialization, urbanization and scarcity of fresh water bring new opportunities for the market players.

The water desalination equipment market can be segmented on the basis of the technology used in the desalination process. The equipment market can be broadly classified into distillation processes and membrane processes. Distillation process is further divided into multi-stage flash, multi-effect evaporation and vapor compression. Multi stage flash units are broadly used in African and Middle East region and accounts for nearly 40-45% of total world’s desalination capacity. This process involves evaporation and condensation of water. Both of these processes are coupled in the multi stage flash, so that the latent heat from evaporation process can be recovered for preheating the inlet water. Multi effect evaporation process is the outdated version of the multi stage flash units. Multi effect evaporation was replaced by multi stage evaporation due the problem with the heat transfer tubes. Vapor compression process relies on the reduced pressure operation to coerce evaporation. Vapor compression process is normally used for small and medium installations.

Membrane processes are further segmented into reverse osmosis and electrodialysis. Reverse osmosis recovers clean water from a saline solution that is pressurized to a point greater than the osmotic pressure of the solution. The membrane restricts the salt ion from the saline water through a membrane. Reverse osmosis also removes the dissolved gases and stabilizes the pH value of the fresh water by the addition of Na and Ca salts. Electrodialysis process utilizes direct current and flow channels separated by alternative cation and anion membrane to achieve the separation of water from the dissolved salts. Electrodialysis is used only for removing ionic component from the saline water.

Plastic packaging dominates the global demand for rigid packaging and the trend is anticipated to continue for a foreseeable future. Plastic doesn’t degrade and helps in better preserving of the packaged materials and thus improves shelf life of the packaged material. Moreover, low cost coupled with easy availability of plastic is among major factors driving growth for plastic in the rigid packaging market. Moreover, crude oil is among major raw material employed in the production of several plastic packaging materials such as polycarbonate. Therefore volatile raw material pricing is among other factors restraining demand for plastic as a rigid packaging material. Several issues related to plastic packaging material such as bio degradability and recyclability have led to a surge in number of environmental regulations against the use of plastic packaging materials. Although bio based plastic have been discovered, high production cost has restrained growth for bio based plastics. Therefore, demand for plastic as a rigid packaging material is anticipated to grow at a sluggish rate during the forecast period.

Metal and glass are among dominant type of rigid packaging. Cans and bottles are among the most common rigid packaging material manufactured using glass and metals. Moreover, high production cost and bio degradability issues associated with metal and glass materials has restrained market growth for metal and glass based rigid packaging material. Paper is expected to be the fastest growing product segment for rigid packaging. With increasing technological advancements, high strength and durable rigid paper packaging have been discovered and are fast substituting plastic, metal and glass based rigid packaging material. Moreover, forest materials such as pulp, wood and timber are among the raw materials employed in the production of paper packaging material.

Therefore various deforestation laws have been imposed that have restrained market growth for paper as a rigid packaging material. Furthermore, paper can be recycled easily and is a biodegradable product; paper packaging manufacturers have increased the use of recycled paper as the basic raw material. Therefore, paper packaging is among the most eco friendly and cost efficient packaging materials owing to which, paper is anticipated to be the fastest growing product segment for rigid packaging applications.

Asia Pacific dominates the global rigid packaging market and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Huge population and high GDP growth rate in the emerging economies of India and China are among foremost growth drivers for rigid packaging in the Asia Pacific region. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region for rigid packaging for a foreseeable future. Demand for rigid packaging in North America and Europe is anticipated to grow at a sluggish rate primarily owing to market saturation in several end user industries.

Rigid packaging market is highly fragmented and is characterized by the presence of several regional players. The market is price sensitive and the degree of competition in the industry is high. Major players in the rigid packaging market include DS Smith PLC, Holmen AB, Georgia Pacific Corporation and MeadWestVaco Corporation among several others.
