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.

Key Findings

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.
