Analysis of the Indian Municipal Water and Wastewater Treatment Market
The municipal water and wastewater treatment equipment market in India is expected to grow from INR million in 2013 to INR million by 2018.
The major market drivers include a rising population, increasing per capita water consumption, depleting ground water resources (creating water scarcity), deteriorating ground water and fresh water quality, and government policies.
The major restraints include funding issues faced by municipalities. A lack of revenue generation by the municipalities make them dependant on external funding.
Government policies, such as the National Water Mission, support the growth of the water and wastewater treatment market.
Major cities along the coastline, such as Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkatta, Surat, and Vizag, offer more potential for desalination plants that can help meet the growing water demand.
The low level of wastewater collection and treatment facilities also offers a lot of potential for private companies.
The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of % from 2013 to 2018.
About this report
This research service discusses how the high population and urbanization of India is putting severe pressure on India’s water resources. Ground water and fresh water are the major resources of India and both are not adequate to meet the growing demand from various sectors. These sectors include agriculture, industry, and domestic use. This situation is aggravated by changing climate conditions, uneven rainfall patterns, and contamination of water resources. The most populated cities of India do not have enough water to meet the growing demands, whereas cities with a smaller population have excess water supply.
