Germany Water Report 2015
BMI View: Germany's water industry is highly developed, evidenced through high drinking water andsewage network connection rates, significant investment and strict drinking water criteria. However, inorder to become a water powerhouse, Germany must further improve its overall water quality. We see theimprovement of water quality as the final hurdle in the advancement of the German water sector.
Over 2014, the German construction industry has indeed shown signs that it is in the best shape it has beenfor over a year. Yet, in spite of this positivity, we expect the water infrastructure project pipeline to remainsmall. This is largely due to the well developed nature of the country's water sector. We highlight thatoverall investment levels remain muted and major projects will be subject to constrained budgets andstrong opposition. Nonetheless we do anticipate some repair work and a moderate level of expansion,particularly of the distribution and sewage networks, as low levels of domestic investment and ageinginfrastructure do need to be addressed by the government and utilities. As such, we only expect a moderateboost to growth.
