South Africa is a unique market – there are lucrative opportunities in developing their water and wastewater infrastructure but post-apartheid government policies can make market entry a delicate process.

With a shift towards the municipal market and major upcoming reuse and desalination projects, this is an exciting market for international companies who can build relationships with local players.

Market drivers and opportunities

The South African government is committed to providing free water and basic sanitation to the poor as it strives to redress the inequalities of apartheid. Historically, the South African water market has been driven by the industrial sector, but over the next five years there will be a shift towards municipal water.

We show you exactly where the focus of investment will be and how to get involved:
There will be increased investment in water and wastewater networks, together with an emphasis on municipal water reuse for industrial supply, and desalination for coastal regions. This will create a range of opportunities for local and international players with different expertise and we show how you can find your place in the supply chain.
Public-private partnerships – the report explores a potential shift to PPP’s to meet South Africa’s water and wastewater needs, so you can get involved in emerging private sector opportunities at the earliest stages.
