After a period of significant contraction brought on by the recession, the Water and Sewer Line Construction industry has only recently begun to recover. Nonetheless, a return to buoyant investment conditions across downstream infrastructure markets will drive future growth in the industry. In the short term, industry growth will be driven by continued recovery in the housing market, with new residential construction necessitating investment in water and sewage lines and new treatment facilities. Long-term drivers in population growth and regulation requirements will also propel industry growth. Furthermore, regulation will drive water and sewer line construction, as environmental mandates force state and local governments to upgrade aging and unsafe infrastructure.
This industry comprises contractors that are responsible for the construction (i.e. new work, reconstruction and repairs) of water mains, sewers, drains, aqueducts, pumping stations, treatment plants and storage tanks. It also includes construction management companies and special trade contractors that are involved in water and sewer line construction. All structures that are integral parts of water and sewer networks are included in this industry.
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.
