As per the GMI Research forecasts, the strong demand for clean water, especially among the oil & gas, food & beverages, metal & mining, and various other industries, is one of the major factors that is accelerating the market’s growth to a CAGR of 2.5% over the forecast period (2020-2027).

The Saudi Arabia water filtration equipment market is projected to witness strong demand over the next six years. The strong demand for clean water, especially among the oil & gas, food & beverages, metal & mining, and various other sectors, is a major factor that is contributing to the growth of the market. Moreover, the increasing inclination of consumers towards the consumption of treated water is another factor that is supporting the market growth. The deteriorating quality of water and the increasing scarcity of freshwater resources has surged the demand for clean water. This factor will further boost the demand for the market over the coming years.

Rapid industrialization and unsupervised dumping of chemical substances have resulted in pollution of the water bodies such as rivers and lakes. This factor has encouraged the government to set up various wastewater treatment units to filter the contaminated water. In addition to this, the government of Saudi Arabia is focusing on launching several initiatives and strategies to enhance the wastewater treatment process in the country. In 2019, the kingdom’s Water & Electricity Company (WEC) had awarded numerous contracts for the kingdom’s first independent water project and independent sewage treatment projects. Hence, the rising number of wastewater related projects will drive the demand for water filtration equipment. Furthermore, the increasing incidences of waterborne diseases among the population and the rising consumption of water driven by the development of smart cities are certain other factors that will propel the market growth.

On the basis of End User, the municipal segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the increasing demand for treated water from municipal applications, followed by the rising number of government initiatives for the treatment of industrial wastewater discharge. Moreover, the strong demand for water driven by the increasing rate of population and rapid urbanization will have a positive impact on the segment’s growth. On the other hand, the industrial segment is projected to witness a higher CAGR over the next six years. The stringent regulations and various government regulations, such as the formulation of the Regional Clean Sea Organisation to filter the wastewater that is discharged from the industrial facilities, are boosting the segment growth.

Based on the technology, the reverse osmosis systems segment is anticipated to dominate the Saudi Arabia Water Filtration Equipment Market during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the accelerating demand for these systems, particularly among residential and commercial end-users. Moreover, the increasing utilization of reverse osmosis technology for the treatment of water & hazardous waste, separation processes in the paper, food, and beverage industry, and for the recovery of organic and inorganic materials from the chemical processes is attracting a new consumer base towards the market. However, the filtration methods segment is projected to witness a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The accelerating demand for filtration systems from residential, commercial, and other end-users due to the growing concerns related to the harmful effects of water pollution is a major factor that is responsible for the growth of the segment in the market.
