Title: $5 Billion 2015 Desalination Market for Pumps, Valves, Filters and Chemicals

The market for pumps, valves, filters and chemicals for use in desalination will exceed $5 billion in 2015. This is the conclusion reached by the McIlvaine Company in aggregating forecasts in a number of its reports. (www.mcilvainecompany.com) California with its drought crisis is at the epi-center of the desalination activity. Seventeen plants are in planning stages along the coast to convert saltwater from the ocean or bays, including one near Concord that would convert 20 million gallons a day of drinkable water. A plant under construction near San Diego will be biggest desalination facility in the Western Hemisphere when it begins operations in 2016. The $1 billion plant will produce 50 million gallons of potable water daily. A $400 million plant could begin construction in Monterey County by 2018. Activity in the Middle East will also be high although other areas of the world are gaining market share. The biggest hardware investment will be in cross-flow membrane equipment. Consumable expenditures with the highest revenue generation will be replacement membrane modules and treatment chemicals.
