Growth Opportunities in APAC Water & Wastewater Services Market, Forecast to 2022
The Asia-Pacific (APAC) water and wastewater services (WWWS) market, comprising water and wastewater treatment service offerings, such as design & engineering (D&E), operation and maintenance (O&M), and spare parts, for municipal operations and industries is growing steadily thanks to the region-wide economic development. The market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.82% between 2017 and 2022, propelled by a rapid population growth and urbanization, industrial growth across Southeast Asia (SEA) and Central China, and tightening regulations surrounding water use and discharge, the emergence of difficult-to-treat process waters in food & beverage (F&B) and electrical & electronics (E&E) industries, and the volatility and scarcity of water resources across the region as a whole.
Apart from providing an analysis of the market growth factors, this study offers additional insights into the competitive landscape, an analysis of country attractiveness for further investment, and insights into broader policy trends influencing the industrial water solutions market. The APAC WWWS market is still nascent and is highly fragmented. Water market leaders from Japan, North America, and Europe have already begun capitalizing on the largely under-developed market. Key companies in the region include Veolia, Suez, Hyflux, Swing, Darco Water, Beijing Enterprises Water Group, ch2m Hill, AECOM, Black & Veath, Fuji Enviro, and a number of other smaller market disruptors and agitators. While India and China are currently the markets with the most activity, developing markets such as Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand are expected to offer strong growth opportunity in the coming years. In terms of end-user segment performance, the industrial water segment will offer the strongest short-term growth opportunities; within service types, the D&E segment will see strong growth due to the slew of upcoming projects in the region.
