Sewage Treatment Facilities in the US

Revenue for the Sewage Treatment Facilities industry has grown over the five years to 2016, as waste volumes have increased due to consumers and businesses generating more wastewater during the economic recovery. In turn, operators sought rate increases from public utility commissions, which were approved and then passed on to the industry's customers, boosting profit margins. The industry will benefit substantially over the five years to 2021, as growth in the US economy solidifies, driving consumption upward. Wastewater volumes will increase as consumption expands among households and businesses. Despite minor declines in per capita water use, due to increased water conservation efforts, rate increases will still lead the way as industry operators experience revenue growth for handling higher volumes of wastewater.

This industry operates sewage systems or sewage treatment facilities that collect, treat and dispose waste. The industry includes both public and private sector operators.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
