China: Global Overview and Industrial Markets
Rapid economic growth has left a legacy of water pollution that the government is no longer ignoring. Chinese authorities are now determined to improve wastewater effluent quality, sludge management, and drinking water quality. Environmental protection is regarded by the top levels of government as a driver of economic growth, rather than a limiting factor. Several important policies have been released since 2014 and the 13th Five Year Plan (2016–2020) has set ambitious targets for 2020 as well as increased support in public-private-partnerships (PPP). China is the top market in the world- utility and industrial capex is $52 billion in 2016 and set to increase to $67 billion in 2020. There are huge opportunities for companies that can establish and develop the right partnerships with domestic players.

United Kingdom: Global Overview and Water in England and Wales to 2020
The UK water and wastewater sector, particularly in England and Wales, is set for an exciting few years. The regulatory environment of the new Asset Management Plan (AMP6) is forcing the water and wastewater utilities to achieve more for less, while ongoing market reform in the sector will see a disaggregation of the value chain. These developments are combining to offer plentiful opportunities in the sector in the coming years, notably in asset management and for new entrants in both the retail and wholesale space that have been traditionally under the domain of water utilities.
Water in England and Wales to 2020: risks and opportunities in AMP6
Every five years, the regulated water companies in England and Wales put forward their expenditure plans to Ofwat, the sector’s economic regulator, for approval. The Price Review (PR14) for Asset Management Plan 6 (AMP6) reached its conclusion in December 2014 when Ofwat published its Final Determination for each company in the period 2015-2020.
This process opens a window of opportunity for suppliers to the sector to sell into a £40 billion market. It also marks an important transition for those involved in financing expenditure in the industry: previous price reviews have led to dramatic changes in the financial structure of the industry.
