Public sanitation is an integral building block of modern civilisation and the responsibility for the provision of sewerage services falls squarely with the Sewerage industry. Industry revenue is expected to grow to meet increased demand from the domestic population and other industries, expanding at a compound annual rate of 2% over the five years through 2015-16. A steady increase in waste-water discharge has been underpinned by growth in the number of households, household water usage and the volume of discharge from industrial customers. Industry revenue is expected to increase by 5.6% in 2015-16 to £7.7 billion.
Firms in this industry operate sewerage systems for the collection, treatment and disposal of sewage, including household and industrial waste water and rainwater runoff. The industry is responsible for maintaining sanitation services for customers and meeting statutory obligations with respect to system overflows and waste-water quality through the stages of treatment.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
