The global market for water trading is growing due to the high demand for clean water. The increase in population across the globe, along with the economic development, has resulted in numerous challenges for the water management. This has, in turn, resulted in the decline of the access to clean and healthy water. Further, there is a rise in the death toll of people due to the water borne illness and they also lack the capital to create infrastructure to combat these problems. All these circumstances have raised the global demand for water and have immensely increased the market for water trading. Presently, many nations have adopted the trend of clean water and to gain benefit from the international water trade. The countries with an ample supply of fresh and clean water, along with the huge capital, serve as a lucrative market for water trading. These countries can make huge profits by investing in the clean water based foreign markets or by exporting water to other countries.

The major restraint to the global water trading market includes the high cost of infrastructure, required to transport water to a long distance, from a seller to buyer. The other barriers in the global water trading market are: legal constraints, water rights and political & social barriers. Among these, the water rights prevent the users to get clean water if there is any rationing system that gives preference to any senior member over the junior citizen; this ultimately complicates trading, as rights must be quantified before trading. Further, the social factors affecting the trading of water and the unwillingness of political leader to support water markets may hamper the global market for water trading and act as restraint.
