This research service provides a 360 Degree Perspective on the global water and wastewater network market which is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.6% from 2014 to 2020. The study analyses various value chain segments, namely: pumps, pipes and allied technologies, meters, software, automation and ICT, pipe network services, and design and engineering services. It identifies key global hotspots and discusses the trends, challenges, and opportunities in the market. The analysis also provides global market revenue outlooks and case studies of best practices in water and wastewater networks.
The total market size of water and wastewater networks was approximately $ x billion in 2014 and is expected to reach over $ x billion by 2020. Water and wastewater connectivity is a critical concern in the Southern hemisphere. Developed regions will move towards smart systems while developing regions might leapfrog to smart networks with futuristic planning.
The market for rehabilitation is growing at a faster pace than the market for new networks due to ageing water and wastewater infrastructure. Trenchless technologies, pipe services, and smart systems will be driven by the significant investments in pipe rehabilitation.
Energy comprises up to x % of total operating costs in water and wastewater utilities. Global non-revenue water losses are estimated at x % to x %. Experience, expertise, and smart water adoptability will be crucial for market survival among utilities and system integrators. The diversification of water and wastewater utilities into upstream and downstream business will provide them with a competitive edge.
Cash-strapped for funding for water and wastewater projects, utilities turn to solutions that extend the life of networks and optimise supply-transmission. Using a localised approach with suitable solutions that contribute to cost-competitiveness will remain key to winning projects for businesses in this sector.
Opportunities in the form of public-private partnerships will be mutually profitable and are expected to bring in operational efficiency. New and innovative business models, such as software as a service and performance contracting, will be embraced for financing capital intensive projects.
Automation and ICT services to grow at a x % CAGR through to 2020 as a result of the optimisation of networks and use of automation in wastewater networks.
Metering and pipe network services to witness a CAGR around x %, which is primarily driven by the need to reduce non-revenue water (NRW) and extend network life.
The software and analytics services segment to grow at the fastest pace as utilities awaken to the use of data from various network infrastructure processes to effectively manage the networks.
Within the pipes and allied segment, trenchless technologies to gain large market shares by 2020.
Pump services to grow at a higher rate than pumps with an increase in the age of pumps and to manage costs.
Urbanisation, Infrastructure Development, and Smart Cities
The shift in population from rural areas or under-developed areas to urban areas is resulting in urbanisation. Six out of x people will live in urban areas by 2025. This will result in the emergence of Mega Cities.
The smart water grid market will reach a market value of $ x billion in 2020.
The nexus of smart infrastructure, smart technology, and smart energy will result in smart water and wastewater networks.
Water and wastewater network infrastructure to see a cumulative investment of $ x trillion between 2015 and 2020.
Investment in water and wastewater infrastructure is a pillar for overall growth.
