More than 50% of U.S. municipal water & wastewater infrastructure is nearing the end of its useful life, and the traditional quick fixes by a highly fragmented group of 50,000 public water systems are giving way to a need for more extensive capital expenditures.
Over the next ten years, from 2016 to 2025, municipal utilities have set the stage for over US$ 550 billion in capital improvements to address deteriorating piping networks, combined sewer overflows, and rising population demands for new water supplies.
The scope of these utility infrastructure improvements varies significantly by region- utilities in the east are largely focused on system rehabilitation and storm water overflows, while new water supplies and drought management activities are more prevalent in the south and west. As a result, the market is ripe for new, more efficient infrastructure solutions.
This report is essential for companies evaluating the outlook, opportunities, and trends in water infrastructure planning for U.S utilities.
WHO SHOULD BUY THIS REPORT
- Water technology firms seeking insights into advanced water treatment opportunities across the U.S. municipal utility sector.
- Supply chain companies in need of critical analysis on CAPEX trends and forecasts by utility, state, and region.
- EPC firms looking to stress-test their strategies and validate strategic decisions through an un- biased, independent perspective
- Infrastructure Investors looking for guidance to support M&A and investment decisions.
- Financial organizations requiring transparent analysis of the U.S. municipal utility regulatory environment and key drivers for growth.
In this report, Bluefield profiles more than 60 of the largest municipal utility in the U.S. Each profile provides competitive analysis of each utility's capital improvement plans, including year-over-year investments, utility details, key initiatives impacting spending, and CAPEX breakout, including water, wastewater, pipes, pumps, plants, and other categories.
The profiles are accompanied by excel spreadsheets supporting each profile.
