Extreme Weather Conditions Renew Cooperation between Water Companies and Governments
•Some of the most prevalent issues in climate change are intense rainfall that causes severe flooding, and extreme dry weather or drought. In both extremities, the water industry is affected.
•Efforts in adapting and mitigating the effects of climate change vary by countries in Asia-Pacific.
•Governments and market participants are cooperating at varying levels in ensuring water supply sustainability that is necessary to support socio-economic growth. This study determines the expansion potential of the water industry in Asia-Pacific, at the holistic level and at the level that looks at possible opportunities which are narrowed to withstand climate change. There are three broad clusters of Asia-Pacific countries for the water industry in relation to climate change.
Australia, New Zealand, Singapore
Strong policies in place; immediate need for urban water management and water supply for agriculture and mining
China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand
Policies at development phase; immediate need for flood and drought mitigations and industrial water sustainability
Japan, South Korea
Strong policies in place; developed and matured water industry, immediate need for urban water management and emergency water supply systems
Climate change is likely to further reduce freshwater availability between x to x % from 2013 to 2018 in Asia-Pacific. Agriculture will remain as the most important industry in water consumption.
Several technologies within the energy and environment industries have been identified to limit the effect of climate change. Technologies in the water industry are primarily used for climate change adaptation.
Opportunities exist for cloud-based solutions to facilitate continuity of sewage and water operations as well as for water billing.
Government agencies are key decision makers in climate change efforts within the water industry. Best practices in technology application to combat climate change vary across Asia-Pacific.
In terms of prioritization, there are three clusters of Asia-Pacific countries with different market needs and regulatory and policy environment.
It refers to the change of weather conditions caused directly or indirectly by human activities that affect the characteristics and properties of the global atmosphere. Climate change is observed over comparable timeframes and it may be interchangeably referred to as global warming.
The water industry refers to the treatment of water for potable and non-potable use for domestic and non-domestic purposes, and treatment of both municipal and industrial wastewater for safe discharge. It excludes environmental works related to water such as remediation, water source conservation and protection, laboratory testing, water quality and treatment plant auditing, and consultation services.
Compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is the year-over-year growth rate of a market size or investment over a specified period of time.
Unless otherwise specified, Asia-Pacific in this document refers to Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand.
Market Size / Market Revenue
Unless otherwise specified, market size or market revenue or total market size refers to the sales value of water and wastewater treatment equipment only. Services are not included. The market includes water and wastewater treatment equipment used for both municipal and industrial (industrial may include agriculture and mining) purposes.
Equipment represents all major treatment equipment used in the treatment of water and wastewater such as membranes, filtration equipment, pumps, disinfection equipment, excluding ancillary equipment such as instrumentations, electrical systems, valves, and pipes.
CC Market Size or Use for CC
Similar to the above definitions, it is the market size of water and wastewater treatment equipment that are used to adapt or mitigate climate change. It is referred to as ‘CC (climate change) market’ or ‘Use for CC’ in this study, and it may include, but not limited to the following sub segments:
•Flood mitigation equipment
•Rainwater and stormwater harvesting equipment
•Water management systems for drought
