The Water Supply industry provides high-quality water to a large number of household and commercial end users. As the industry requires substantial water sources, its operations can be at the mercy of weather and climatic conditions, particularly during extended periods of low rainfall and drought. Historically, the water that the industry captured, transported and processed was sourced from traditional rain-fed sources such as dams. However, in the past five years, the industry has built alternate sources of supply.
Firms in the industry catch, store, purify and supply water, usually via a system of pipes. Although firms that operate irrigation systems supplying water to farms are included in the industry, the on-farm operation of irrigation systems is included in the agricultural services sector.
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.
