Global Rainwater Harvesting Market, Growth at 4.8% by 2020 – Increased use of Rainwater Harvesting for Groundwater Recharge – Research & Markets

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global Rainwater Harvesting Market 2016-2020” report to their offering.

The global rainwater harvesting market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during the period 2016-2020.

Some of the benefits of rainwater harvesting include:

Quality of rainwater is relatively better than groundwater.
It can reduce storm drainage load and flooding.
These systems are flexible, can be constructed quickly, and are not labor intensive.
The rainwater harvesting system is used to recharge groundwater artificially. This method is primarily followed to improve and develop groundwater resources. The primary methods for groundwater recharge are recharge pits, recharge trenches, tube wells, and recharge wells.

According to the report, inadequate water management and improper re-use of water are cited to be the reasons for the water scarcity. Rainwater harvesting is an affordable solution to overcome such water stress. Also, it could be a vital alternative for a decentralized water source. This alternative water source reduces the use of fresh water from the surface and groundwater sources. The harvested rainwater can be used for agricultural, domestic, and industrial use.

Further, the report states that the rainwater harvesting system is often associated with high installation costs for existing buildings. The cost cannot be generalized as it varies depending on the site and size of the tank. Also, these systems can be used only in the rainy season. This results in decreased demand for rainwater harvesting systems.
