CEO 360 Degree Perspective on Global Water and Wastewater Networks
The total market size of water and wastewater networks was approximately $ billion in 2014 and is expected to reach over $billion by 2020. Water and wastewater connectivity is a critical concern in the Southern hemisphere. Developed regions will move towards smart systems while developing regions might leapfrog to smart networks with futuristic planning.
The market for rehabilitation is growing at a faster pace than the market for new networks due to ageing water and wastewater infrastructure. Trenchless technologies, pipe services, and smart systems will be driven by the significant investments in pipe rehabilitation.
Energy comprises up to % of total operating costs in water and wastewater utilities. Global non-revenue water losses are estimated at % to %. Experience, expertise, and smart water adoptability will be crucial for market survival among utilities and system integrators. The diversification of water and wastewater utilities into upstream and downstream business will provide them with a competitive edge.
Cash-strapped for funding for water and wastewater projects, utilities turn to solutions that extend the life of networks and optimise supply-transmission. Using a localised approach with suitable solutions that contribute to cost-competitiveness will remain key to winning projects for businesses in this sector.
Opportunities in the form of public-private partnerships will be mutually profitable and are expected to bring in operational efficiency. New and innovative business models, such as software as a service and performance contracting, will be embraced for financing capital intensive projects.
