Water and Wastewater Industry Automation and Software Expenditures

Publish Date

This global market research study delivers five year history plus five year market forecast for Automation and Software Technologies.


The Automation Expenditures for Water & Wastewater Industry Global Market Research Study examines the market for automation and field devices and the factors contributing to the growth and deployment of specific products and systems.

ARC believes that the water & wastewater industry represents one of the greatest opportunities for the automation business through the next 20 years. The infrastructure needed to supply clean water and help protect water sources from human, industrial, and agricultural contaminants is sorely burdened on many different fronts.   

In the developed regions of North America, Europe, Japan and others, existing water & wastewater systems are rapidly aging and require significant investment to ensure efficient water supply with improved infrastructure.

Emerging countries, especially the BRIC countries, are expected to invest tens of billions of dollars each over the next several years.  This is important to ensure that their water infrastructures can meet the needs of growing industrial activity and population.

Looking at water consumption, agriculture is, by far, the largest single consumer of water.  Non-agricultural, industry sectors that consume large quantities of water include food & beverage processing, pharmaceuticals, consumer packaged goods, semiconductors, oil & gas production, petroleum refining & petrochemicals, mining & metals, pulp & paper, and electric power generation.
