Water Desalination Pumps Market in EMEA 2017-2021
About Water Desalination Pumps
A pump is a mechanical device that is used to raise or move fluids from one point to another. The water desalination pumps market in EMEA encompasses pumps that are used in desalination plants and convert salty seawater into fresh water. Pumps in desalination plants are used for water intake from the sea, feeders, slurry transfer, brine transfer, and supplying water into a different process.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the water desalination pumps market in EMEA to grow at a CAGR of 7.05% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the water desalination pumps market in EMEA for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Water Desalination Pumps Market in EMEA 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the water desalination pumps market in EMEA: Flowserve, Grundfos, ITT, Sulzer, and Wilo.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BBA pumps, Torishima Pump, SUEZ, SPP Pumps, and Martens (GHM Messtechnik GmbH).
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is flexible operations using intelligent pump systems. Intelligent pump systems help in controlling and regulating the flow and pressure of fluids. These pumps have a fault-tolerant design, which can adjust to any changes to the pump system and its processes. Many desalination plants are expected to install intelligent pump systems as they help in improving operational efficiency and cost.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for reverse osmosis techniques. With the increase in water quality standards and the rise of new types of contaminants, the demand for new types of membranes in reverse osmosis technology has been increasing. Conventional filtration techniques like thermal filtration are very expensive, although due to the increasing water demand, they are being used in water filtration. However, several plants are now incorporating innovative filtration techniques like reverse osmosis.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high equipment and operational costs. A large amount of electric power is required to transfer water through pumps. A typical wastewater treatment plant requires 30% to 40% of energy. With the rise in energy prices, utility costs are increasing, which has increased operating costs of equipment in desalination plants, especially pumps as they are the major consumers of electric power in desalination plants. Pumps are also prone to corrosion problems, sludge accumulation, and severe water flow, which results in frequent replacement.
