Water Industry
Nations in the Gulf consume an average of 816 cubic meters of water per person per year, which is 65% more than the world average, according to a report by Frost & Sullivan.
The GCC has nearly USD42 billion worth of water and wastewater projects and about USD17 billion worth of desalination plant projects in the next 10 years.
GCC countries will aim to lower current loss between 13% & 35% from non-revenue water (NRW) (water “lost” before reaching customer) in order to strengthen water security.
Tariff hikes on water use can spur R&D and commercialization of smart meters and smart water grids and put pressure on desalination water plants to reduce energy consumption.
The region is dealing with demand by deploying thermal desalination, reverse osmosis (RO) membrane desalination, and solar-powered desalination

Global water and waste water treatment market by chemicals and equipment is anticipated to grow to USD138 billion by 2022, according to Research and Markets.
It is expected to be mainly driven by environmental impact, increasing population coupled, aging infrastructure and climatic concerns which will act as key drivers for the growth of this market.
Chemical segment accounted for a 30% share in global water and waste water treatment market by chemicals and equipment in 2015
Municipal segment holds a major share in terms of market value and volume in 2016 among both the municipal and industrial application types.
Asia Pacific region dominated the global water and waste water treatment market by chemicals and equipment in 2015 accounting for 35.14% of the global water and waste water treatment market.
