EBJ Vol XXVI No 12: The U.S. Water Industry

In spite of restricted funding, the $154-billion water industry is still a pretty decent business to be in. Growth has been between three and five percent the last few years and EBJ forecasts more of the same. In general utilities have grown revenues a bit faster than service providers based on rate increases as much as three times the Consumer Price Index, but little of that has trickled down to equipment manufacturers. EBJ presents its annual analysis of the U.S. water industry with data tables on the industry in 10 sub-segments. Interviews and comments by leaders and innovators in consulting & engineering, equipment manufacturing, investors, trade associations and analysts, complement market analysis and list of top companies from EBJ's databases of Water Equipment & Chemical companies.
