Growth Accelerated by Enhanced Deployment of Atmospheric Water Generators in Commercial and Industrial Sectors

Atmospheric water generators make use of air’s humidity to produce clean and potable water. These generators condense water vapour from the air by cooling air below its dew point. The potable water obtained from atmospheric water generators is free from contaminants, pollution, and bacteria. The generators offer viable solutions in areas facing water scarcity issues and are ideal for commercial and industrial establishments, households, remote areas, and disaster relief operations.

The global Atmospheric Water Generator Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3.08 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16% over the forecast period 2024-2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends: The growing deployment of atmospheric water generators in commercial and industrial sectors has emerged as a key trend in the market over the recent past. The lucrative opportunities offered by sectors such as hospitality, healthcare, and manufacturing have prompted leading manufacturers to introduce advanced atmospheric water generation systems tailored for commercial use. The commercial-grade generators guarantee high production outputs and employ advanced technologies like cloud seeding to boost yields. The latest product launches have further strengthened the market position of commercial systems. For instance, in 2022, Watergen launched the GEN-350 global commercial atmospheric water generator that can produce 350 litres of fresh drinking water daily. Such product innovations will continue to drive the demand from commercial applications, thereby stimulating market growth over the forecast period.

Key players: Key players operating in the atmospheric water generator market are Dew Point Manufacturing, Watair Inc, Ambient Water, Saisons Technical Services, WaterMaker India Pvt. Ltd, Planets Water, Air2Water LLC, Konia, Atlantis Solar, and Gram Industrial.Dew Point Manufacturing is currently the dominant market player due to its innovative and efficient product offerings such as the Solar Atmospheric Water Generators. Watair Inc specializes in large-scale industrial atmospheric water generators for commercial and institutional buildings.

Segment Analysis
The global atmospheric water generator market is segmented based on harvesting technology, application and region. Based on harvesting technology, the market is divided into cooling condensation and wet desiccation. The cooling condensation segment currently dominates and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. In the cooling condensation process, humid air is cooled below its dew point and the condensed water is collected. It is a more efficient process with higher yields of water generated.

Key Takeaways

The global Atmospheric Water Generator Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3.08 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16% over the forecast period 2024-2031.

Regional analysis: The Asia Pacific region currently accounts for the largest share of the global atmospheric water generator market and is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. Rapid industrialization and high demand for alternative water sources in densely populated countries such as India and China are propelling market growth in the region. In addition, governments are taking initiatives to install water generation plants to overcome water scarcity issues.
