Sewage Treatment Facilities in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Sewage Treatment Facilities in the US

Revenue for the Sewage Treatment Facilities industry has grown over the five years to 2018. Waste volumes have increased since 2013, as consumers and businesses have generated more wastewater during economic expansion. In turn, operators sought rate increases from public utility commissions (PUCs), which were approved and then passed on to the industry's customers, boosting revenue. In light of these positive conditions, industry revenue is expected to climb over the five years to 2018. Over the next five years, the industry will benefit substantially from solidifying growth in the US economy, which will drive consumption upward across many sectors of the economy. Wastewater volumes will increase as consumption expands among households and businesses. Private companies will continue to enter the industry, acquiring aging assets to expand their presence. Additionally, the adoption of biotechnology for wastewater management needs is increasing, including the use of genetically engineered micro-organisms to combat industrial wastewater pollution. As a result of these promising trends, revenue is forecast to increase steadily over the five years to 2023.
