The Sewer and Pipeline Rehabilitation has resumed growth over the five years to 2017. The industry's only marginal recessionary decline highlights the critical nature of industry services. Conversely, state subsidization of sewer and water infrastructure maintenance and repair, which is primarily directed to those municipalities that find it difficult to fund these projects on their own, declined as state governments worked to balance their constrained budgets. In an effort to maintain aging capital assets such as water distribution networks, a number of private water utilities have bought operations from municipalities. The industry is expected to grow at a more robust rate over the five years to 2022. Continued economic growth is forecast to improve state and local government tax bases, granting governments more financial freedom to fund the repair, maintenance and rehabilitation of sewer and water infrastructure.
This industry is composed of operators that engage in the rehabilitation of sewers, sewer lines, septic systems, water mains, storage tanks, wells and related facilities using trenchless techniques and other methods. The industry does not include the construction of new sewer lines and related structures.
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.
