Private Ownership Sparks New Phase of Global Desalination Growth

The global desalination sector is transitioning into a new phase defined by increased private sector ownership and proliferating greenfield opportunities in new markets and geographies, according to a new report from Bluefield Research. Nearly 8 million m3per day of privately-owned desalination capacity have been installed globally since 2009, representing 35 percent of total additions during that period. Of the 25 million m3per day of large-scale desalination projects currently planned or under construction, Bluefield estimates that 51 percent will end up under private ownership.
