Capital expenditure on water and wastewater infrastructure is set to more than double to $4.9 billion by 2018 compared with $2.4 billion in 2011. This market is set to offer huge opportunities for anyone in the business of water, and we show you exactly where and how to take advantage of these opportunities.
