Event Water Investment World Middle East 2009

Water Investment World MENA is the only event of its kind in the region to bring together regulators, utilities, investors, financiers and contractors under one roof to discuss planning and continuous development of water resources in the region. The event offers you an unparalleled opportunity to interact with the decision makers and explore new opportunities in the water business in the Middle East.

 
The average annual increase of demand for desalinated water in the Arab world is 6% per annum compared to the 3% global average.  40% of desalinated water demand in the Middle East comes from the industrial and municipal sectors. Approximately 70% (about 24 million cu. Meters per day) of the UAE’s water comes from desalination plants. Dubai alone has an installed desalination capacity of 188 million gallons per day (MIGD) with a total production of 58.8 MIGD.   
 
Saudi Arabia has scarce fresh water resources. Official statistics show that the country is the world’s largest producer of desalinated water with 30 % global production.  The 30 desalination plants in Saudi Arabia pump almost 600 million gallons per day meeting 70% of the drinking water needs.  US $53 billion is required to increase its desalination capacity to 10.7million cubic meters per day by 2020 to meet demand.
