Sewage Treatment Facilities in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Sewage Treatment Facilities in the US

The Sewage Treatment Facilities industry has grown over the five years to 2019. Waste volumes have increased since 2014, as consumers and businesses have generated more wastewater during the economic expansion. Operators sought rate increases from public utility commissions, which were approved and then passed on to the industry's customers, boosting revenue. Private entry into the industry has spurred acquisition activity, as struggling local governments short on tax revenue have been outsourcing facilities and operations to meet public demand. The industry will continue to benefit over the five years to 2024, as growth in the US economy solidifies, driving consumption upward across many sectors of the economy. 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 of 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.
