Who Will Pay for Wastewater Infrastructure? Private Company Water Market Share Will Grow to 17% in 2015, but Opposition Remains Strong
FARMINGTON, Conn., Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — A problem for the water industry is that water is perceived as a right and citizens are less willing to pay for water than they are for electricity. However, the need for private sector involvement in the water sector is growing as rising demand for safe water and sanitation parallels global population increases of approximately 1.1 percent annually. The shift to water sector privatization is marked by strong opposition. While some countries are making moves to outlaw water privatization, international organizations such as the World Bank is softening its approach towards the practice. The need for new facilities and existing infrastructure repairs is strong, but who is willing to invest?
How will privatization affect the interrelated arms of the water industry?
Three new market research reports available from GII examine critical water industry topics such as deregulation, wastewater aeration systems and ballast water treatment systems.
NRG Expert Water Deregulation Report
Population growth is creating a greater demand for improved water supplies and sanitation, especially in developing countries and urban areas. Due to the investment involved and expertise needed. The share of private companies in the water and wastewater market is forecast to increase from 8% of the global population in 2003 to 17% in 2015.
In many countries, major water companies such as Veolia and Suez are involved in joint ventures to develop projects. Recently, Veolia publically announced that it plans to expand worldwide mostly through build-own-transfer (BOT) and management contracts, with fewer ‘ownership’ projects.

The Ballast Water Treatment System Market 2012-2022
Water treatment systems in the maritime industry take a new turn as ship owners are taking more interest in the technologies and vendors available to meet the ballast water treatment requirements. In their new report, Visiongain projects that the ballast water treatment system market will reach a value of $240 million in 2012.
The report contains 50 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends within the ballast water treatment system market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2012-2022 in terms of value (US$) for the global ballast water treatment system market, as well as for 5 sub markets which include the newbuildings market, retrofits market, market for ballast capacities greater than 5,000 cubic metres, market for ballast capacities between 1,500 and 5,000 cubic metres, and market for ballast capacities less than 1,500 cubic metres. In addition, the report identifies and provides profiles of 26 leading companies operating within the market, and includes 8 interviews. 6 of the 8 interviews are from the leading ballast water treatment system providers, one from an elite classification society and one from a leading engineering retrofitting company, all portraying expert insight alongside Visiongain analysis. A SWOT analysis and Porter’s 4 corner analysis for competitors give vital advice to the current and future players within the ballast water treatment system market.

Global Wastewater Aeration Systems Market
Is the wastewater aeration systems market growing? A new study by Frost and Sullivan holds that energy efficiency challenges and demand for increased connectivity are key drivers of innovation and growth in this market. Market growth is led by the need for refurbishment of old infrastructure, demand for new constructions and increased wastewater treatment services. The most growth is expected from the diffused aeration technology segment. Regional variations exist due to the historical focus and expenditure on infrastructure development in individual countries. The increased significance of aeration’s energy intensity promotes innovation.
This report covers major technology trends by region, critical factors to growth, segment breakdowns, competitive analysis, industry convergence implications and more.
