Meeting the world's water and wastewater needs until 2016
OXFORD UK, 5 Feb 2010 - A new report by Global Water Intelligence magazine provides the most comprehensive picture of the current world water markets to date. Based upon the best-selling 2008 report, Global Water Markets 2011 is fully re-written and updated to include a greater focus on the fast-growing reuse and industrial water markets and the consequent recent surge in technological solutions.
Every aspect of the water industry is covered in this 800 page report, with an overview of the major topics supported by detailed data – covering infrastructure, water scarcity, desalination and reuse, investing in water, the outlook for private water and water regulation in the EU.
As in their previous Global report, GWI uses succinct snapshots to describe the water markets in 161 countries, providing information on regional developments, current and future projects and market forecasts for the next six years. However, the new 2011 edition goes much further, still giving an essential world-wide view but adding valuable extended in-depth profiles for 50 of the key country markets - where there is a sizeable population and good opportunities for private sector activity.
The extended profiles include data and information that has been researched by GWI’s local experts, native to the countries concerned, using their own network of contacts in both public and private sectors. This data, not previously published and exclusive to GWI, allows in-depth scrutiny of current provision and opportunities for business development and investment.
Forecasts are given for up to 16 areas of business activity, from municipal capital expenditure, through water treatment equipment expenditure of all kinds, to private water company operating revenues. As with all GWI reports, the data is described in narrative and also presented in spreadsheets for quick assimilation and easy use.
Global Water Markets 2011 is published with perfect timing as the Middle East and USA continue to grapple with severe water pressures, and the huge markets of China and India open up. The depth and breadth of the data, its presentation and ease of use make it a vital new resource for all participants requiring an accurate global view of the water industry. Its data will inform investors and financiers about the best opportunities for investment over the next few years; equipment suppliers, engineers and consultants will identify new challenges and the solutions and opportunities ahead; policy makers and water utilities will find detailed examples on organisational structure, financial mechanisms and operational management.
