Industrial Desalination and Water Reuse: Opportunities in scarcity and improved water stewardship
Investments in desalination and water reuse are changing focus: the boom in municipal desalination and reuse - which quadrupled the market in size over the previous decade - has mostly played itself out. Now that investment is shifting to industrial water, currently the fastest growing sector of the water market, with great future potential.
To successfully weather this transition, water technology companies will need to position themselves to take advantage of this growth, or run the risk of missing out. The new report, "Industrial desalination and water reuse" offers key insights on this market. It pinpoints the technologies, industries, geographies and markets that have the greatest potential to give companies, governments, regulators, and researchers the information they need to act.
This report will be essential reading for anyone involved in water technology with ambitions to succeed in some of the fastest growing and most lucrative niches of the global water market today. Water and wastewater treatment systems suppliers can use this as a guide to the most significant market opportunities. Desalination companies, with mounting competition and disappointing levels of growth in the municipal market, need to develop essential strategies for diversification into industrial desalination. Equipment suppliers can use this report to understand the changing needs of their customer base so their business plans stay relevant. Investors will discover where the action is in today's water market, and who is best placed to capitalize on it

Business Strategy: Smart Water Market Overview
A new Energy Insights report provides an overview of the smart water market, a similar and parallel market to the more established smart grid market. Threats of water scarcity and shortages triggered by droughts and a changing global climate, and the need to manage aging infrastructure are all driving water utilities and other organizations responsible for water supply to consider smart technology-based solutions to reduce water losses and enable water conservation. However, current deployment rates of these solutions are low in part because of a lack of understanding regarding the business case for investment, few successful case study examples, issues with technology availability and maturity, and the fragmented nature of the water utility market.

Big Cleantech: Investing in Water Innovations
Investments in water treatment and conservation technologies have been funded by $3.1 billion in private investments since 2007, and the innovation sector is a fraction of water activity overall. According to new market research from Lux Research, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) dominate in the water sector with a diverse group of buyers, frustrating venture capitalists who hold initial public offerings (IPO) as the gold standard. In the water industry, M&As dominate and give a better, and more timely, return on investment. While outsiders see it as monolithic, water is a highly fragmented industry. Each sector of water is unique, with different timelines for venture funding, growth equity, and exit windows. Investors and buyers alike will find opportunities in active regions of the hydrocosm.
This research offers a view of the landscape for water investment. Growth within the water sector is an undeniable reality, as investors and buyers bounce back. Private investments will climb to recovery as the brief IPO window closes and M&A activity picks up steam. This report will help readers identify trends in differing investment strategies, see how each fragment of the water market is unique, and aid them as they explore new investment cycles in water innovations.
