Japan Water Report 2015

Japan Water Report 2015

BMI View: Overall, Japan has a strong, established water sector with good water availability, developedinfrastructure, and effective and continuously updated legislation. However, we do note some drawbacks inthe form of inconsistent and uncertain weather patterns that can stress the water sector, a hugelyfragmented array of water companies, and obsolete water facilities and networks in many areas. Moreover,an incoherent regulatory system made up of competing laws from various government authoritiesoverseeing different consumer groups, in conjunction with a patchwork of regional bylaws, present a severeinhibitor to industrial consumers in particular.

We believe the swift deceleration in Japan's construction and infrastructure growth in 2014 supports ourview that the country's economic stimulus measures are not sustainable over the long term and will need tobe accompanied with structural reforms in order to have positive long-term effects. Overall, we see waterreuse technology and infrastructure (both treatment facilities and redistribution networks) and the upgradingand replacing of the mains water networks as the key infrastructure opportunities over the coming years.

The estimated investment needed for the improvement of the mains networks alone is around JPY1trn.
