— Revenues from South Africa's desalination could reach $69.7 million USD by 2013, according to business consulting firm Frost & Sullivan.

"Water supply shortages, an increasing population and growth in the industrial sector (particularly in mining) are the key factors driving demand for water in South Africa," said Frost & Sullivan research analyst David Winter.
