India desalination plant was valued at $ 940 million in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% to reach $ 1400 million by 2024. Anticipated growth in the market can be attributed to expanding industrial & construction activities, rapid urbanization, rising shortage of ground water and increasing water demand-supply gap. Moreover, the government as well as industry players are gradually shifting their focus towards desalination technology, which can offer a sustainable and economical alternative to conventional water treatment technologies in the country. This factor is further anticipated to fuel growth in the market.
