The water sector is facing greater challenges than ever before: population growth, climate change, increased water scarcity, tougher environmental regulation, and dwindling public finances. As we confront these issues, only one thing stands between success and failure: water technology.
It is a subject which has been neglected over the years. The pipe, the pump and the valve, have been enough to meet our needs but suddenly investment in new technologies has become an imperative.
Water Technology Markets is your in-depth analysis of all the important developments and opportunities in the water technology sector. It aims to answer three questions:
1) What game-changing technologies are in development?
2) Where are the best growth opportunities in the sector?
3) What is the broader context of the water technology sector?
It is essential reading for:
Water equipment suppliers: How can you position yourself to make the most of new market developments?
Engineers and contractors: What new technologies do you absolutely have to be aware of in order to stay ahead of the game? Where will you see the best growth in future?
Investors: Beneath the hype, where are the real opportunities for investors in this sector? What are the risks and rewards?
Water Utilities: Which new technologies can radically alter your cost base?
The report divides into four sections:
- Market Overview: How does the water technology market work? What are the routes to market and the methods of procurement? What is the market structure and how is it evolving?
- Market Drivers: Where and why is innovation a necessity in the water sector? How is climate change affecting the sector? What is the impact of environmental regulation? Where are utilities looking to cut costs?
- Disruptive Technologies: Which purport to offer a radical new solution to the challenges facing utilities? Are they likely to deliver what they promise? Which are the top ten technologies which are going to make the biggest difference?
- Growth Markets: Where is the best growth to be had in the water equipment supply market? What are the dynamics of these markets? Will they continue to grow at the same rate?
- Water Technology Market Map: How do the 3,000 companies which compete in the global water technology market fit together?
The report includes global market size estimates and growth forecasts for the three main growth areas:
- Disinfection: ultraviolet systems, ozonation, and chlorination
- Infrastructure: pipes (new lay and rehabillitation), pumps, and metering
- Desalination & membrane separation: reverse osmosis, thermal desalination, microfiltration and ultrafiltration
