Key Findings

•The development of the water industry will be an important part of the green economy plans of several countries. Instead of being driven by economic activities, the industry will drive economic growth.
•In the past, the boom in economic activities and urbanization had spurred the growth of the water industry. Similarly, economic crises had also slowed down its development by resulting in lower expenditure in research and development (R&D) and postponement of large-scale projects including public private partnerships (PPPs).
•However, due to change in industry dynamics, the water industry will drive the economy instead. This can be attributed to the following reasons:
oClimate change resulting in water scarcity
oDevelopment of green economy to sustain domestic markets
•In 2014, the global water industry witnessed increased mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and PPPs. While M&As will continue in 2015, focus will also increase on business realignment and R&D.
•Membrane systems and disinfection continued to be the main areas of focus for the water industry’s technological development in 2014.
•On the regulatory side, water and wastewater prices remained low in most developing countries in Asia-Pacific (APAC) compared to countries in Europe and North America, although some governments increased the prices by more than x % the same year.
•Capital expenditure (CAPEX) on all water and wastewater utilities in APAC is expected to grow x % to reach $ x billion in 2015. The growth is expected to be driven by higher expenditure on wastewater utilities.
•On the other hand, operational expenditure (OPEX) is expected to have a slightly better growth rate than that of CAPEX. It will increase by x % to reach $ x billion in 2015.
•Utilities’ CAPEX and OPEX are expected to increase in all countries except Singapore and Japan.
•CAPEX for the industrial segment is likely to witness a double digit growth rate of x % in 2015 to reach $ x billion.
•The water industry will see more technological developments in 2015 such as membranes and energy from sludge.
•The reduction of non-revenue water (NRW) will be the first step in combating water inefficiency in most APAC countries.
•As such, smart water metering solutions, which are commonly used to reduce NRW, are expected to see above x % growth in market size in 2015 in APAC.

2014 at A Glance

- High business expansion and PPP opportunities
- Increase in M&As
- Threats from new start-ups and emerging water and non-water companies
- Continuous innovation and technological development
- Rising electricity tariff affecting OPEX on water utilities and industrial facilities
- Water tariff issue still impeding water industry advancement
- Regulations and financing activities key factors driving the water industry
