Water is an essential but scarce resource in various parts of the world either in terms of quantity or quality. We can obtain water that is suitable for human consumption through processes such as desalination or water treatment.

The water management and generation market is currently growing quickly, with strong investment forecast around the world, especially in the United States, China, the Middle East, India, North Africa and Latin America. The reason for this growth lies in the increase in the planet’s population and the scarcity of water resources.
