S water use is forecast to reach 138 trillion gallons in 2022, according to Water: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. An expected uptick in overall electricity generation will spur water use by utilities. Expanding manufacturing and mining activity and growth in the population are also expected to support increases in water use. However, faster gains will be curbed by ongoing water conservation efforts.

US water withdrawal is forecast to total 122 trillion gallons in 2022. Agriculture will continue to represent a major market for water withdrawal. Although planted crop acreage in the US is expected to rise slightly over the forecast period, the adoption of technologies that allow farmers to maintain or increase production levels with less water will continue.
