The trend in interest about water-from-air technology amongst English-speakers can be gauged from data about article views of the Wikipedia article 'Atmospheric water generator'. So far, in 2013, interest is fairly consistent month after month. Qualitatively, a slight upward trend is apparent. The data revealed a total of 41,699 views during the seven month period with an average of 196 article views per day. During the same period, Google Analytics data for the Atmoswater Research website recorded 1,480 unique visitors. But, the bounce rate was 54.13% so the actual number of real visitors was 679. This implies the Atmoswater Research website may only be attracting the attention of 679 out of 41,699 people or 1.6% of its potential audience. This is admittedly an imperfect statistical analysis but it does indicate more out-reach is needed! On a more sobering note the relatively low number of Wikipedia article views per unit time indicates the market for water-from-air technologies may be small.
