U.S. Municipal Water Infrastructure: Utility Strategies & CAPEX Forecasts, 2018-2027
Published: March 30, 2018 Content info: 137 Slides plus Data Appendix
Description

Over the next decade, municipal utilities have set the stage for over US$683 billion in capital improvements to address deteriorating piping networks, combined sewer overflows, and rising population demands on treatment plants and distribution networks. The scope of these utility infrastructure improvements varies significantly by region, state, and municipality.

This new report from Bluefield Research analyzes the trends and opportunities for water infrastructure investment across the U.S municipal utility landscape. Central to Bluefield's 50-state forecast methodology is the analysis of capital improvement plans and spending allocations for utilities in 100 major U.S. cities.

This new report, now available for download, provides:

  • Overview of the U.S. Municipal Water Industry Landscape
  • State by State Infrastructure Forecasts and Data, 2018-2027
  • Emerging Solutions to Closing Water Infrastructure Gap
  • Capital Improvement Plans and Budgets for 100 municipal utilities
  • Regional water and wastewater inputs
  • New vs rehabilitated CAPEX forecasts

KEY QUESTIONS ADDRESSED IN THE REPORT

  • What is the size and growth potential of the U.S. municipal water infrastructure market?
  • Where is the spend forecasted to take place by state and region?
  • Which utilities are poised for the largest expenditures?
  • How do states and regions vary by new build versus rehabilitation?
  • Which sub-segments represent the largest share of spend: pipes, pumps, or plants?
  • With a shift toward resiliency how are utilities allocating financial resources?
  • What is the impact of consent orders on utility spend over the next decade?
  • Which solutions are emerging to slow the widening infrastructure gap?
