Global atmospheric water generator (AWG) market size is predicted to exceed USD 8.5 billion by 2024 as a result of its applications in commercial, residential, and industrial sectors. Scarcity of fresh water due to exhaustion of water resources like drying of lakes & rivers as a result of less rainfall & high temperatures is predicted to boost the demand for atmospheric water generators. Rising investments in infrastructure expansion & industrial growth are projected to increase the fresh water requirements for industrial & residential applications and this will boost the AWG industry growth trends over the next eight years. As per the WHO reports, over half of the world population suffers from waterborne ailments and AWG systems are the best alternative which can fulfill the clean & fresh drinking water requirement of the people across the globe.
Atmospheric water generator (AWG) market size is projected to reach 220.5 thousand units by 2024
Atmospheric water generator (AWG) industry size evaluated at over 30.5 thousand units in 2017, is expected to reach 258.56 thousand units by 2024, growing at a CAGR of around 30% over the period of 2018-2024. Lack of availability of fresh water along with infrastructure growth is predicted to increase the need for freshwater for industrial and residential uses. This, in turn, is predicted to boost the demand for atmospheric water generators in coming years. Furthermore, government initiatives at a global level such as Japan’s DWQS (Drinking Water Quality Standard), Safe Drinking Water Act in U.S., National Rural Drinking Water Program in India, and European Union’s drinking water directive are predicted to fuel the market growth by ensuring availability of pure drinking water.
However, high power consumption by AWG systems along with greenhouse gas emissions adding to environmental pollution are few of the factors predicted to hinder the market growth over the forecast timeline.
