Water Consumption Breakdown in India by Sector

Agriculture’s share of total water consumption is expected to decrease between 2000 and 2050.

  • More efficient methods of irrigation and lower reliance on agriculturally-based products are expected to lead to this reduction.
  • Domestic and industrial sectors are projected to constitute a growing share of the total water consumption between 2000 and 2050
  • The industrial sector demand is expected nearly quadruple due to rapid industrialization and economic growth
