Market drivers and opportunities
The largest growth area in this market will be rehabilitation and maintenance of the country’s ageing infrastructure and private sector involvement in financing and operations is likely to play an important role.
Global Water Intelligence Market Insight: Germany identifies to the two main sources of opportunity for investment in the German water and wastewater infrastructure:
