United Kingdom Water Report 2015

United Kingdom Water Report 2015

BMI View: The UK water sector will go from strength to strength over the coming years as modernisationsand expansion continue to improve an already robust and efficient industry. Slight problems with pollutionand water losses are in the process of being rectified, and the expansion of the network and the growingdemand for water have led to our forecast rise in extraction and consumption levels. We see significantopportunities for both services and infrastructure groups.

The four nations of the UK have top of the range water sectors. Infrastructure and technology are among thebest in Europe and those responsible for the sectors appear keen to maintain the high standards and developthe sectors for the future. In England and Wales this task falls to private companies, with both sectors beingfully privatised. This has resulted in consistent investment and an extremely high standard of service, buthas also meant that tariffs have slowly crept up as profits have been targeted. In Scotland and NorthernIreland the water sectors are owned and managed by the government, resulting in low tariffs for theconsumers but more limited investment and therefore less scope for development and improvement.Northern Ireland residents actually receive free water as the sector is completely subsidised by thegovernment.
