According to the 2016-2017 IDA Yearbook, published by Global Water Intelligence, the international desalination market has shown a third year of continued growth following a slowdown in the mid-2000s. The period June 2015 to June 2016 saw an increase of 3.7 million cubic meters per day (m3/d) of desalination capacity added globally, compared to 3.2 million m3/d the previous year. Globally, the cumulative installed capacity of the 18,983 desalination plants considered to be on line is 88.6 million m3/day. This number includes plants under construction that are expected to be completed by end of 2016. The largest gains in desalination capacity this year were in the Middle East and North Africa. However, traditionally desalination-heavy Saudi Arabia saw mostly small projects this year as it deals with the maze of its national water policy and future desalination strategy as well as the effect of stubbornly low commodities prices.
