Increasing water demand and a corresponding decline in water supply has increased the significance of good quality water. Dwindling water sources, growing industrialization, and rapid population growth coupled with ground and surface water pollution are exerting immense pressure on water resources, necessitating immediate and effective measures to tackle the issue. Water supply and treatment technologies, in this regard, are witnessing strong demand in sync with the spiraling need for clean and potable water. With governments across the world now focusing on establishing efficient water supply systems to ensure sustainable development, investments in highly efficient water and wastewater treatment technologies is increasing.

A large percentage of water supply and sewer systems currently in operation across the world are obsolete and in dire need of upgrade. Against this backdrop, funding for modernization of water infrastructure, especially in developed countries, will create significant opportunities for the growth of water supply systems. Additionally, growing population in developing markets and rapid urbanization are creating an enormous need for expanding water supplies. To ensure water security amidst growing concerns over an impending water crisis, utilities worldwide are focusing on alternative water supply sources, such as recycled water, to address growing water requirements.

The agricultural sector is one of the largest consumers of freshwater. Demand for advanced irrigation systems is poised to grow in line with the increase in world crop production and the accompanying rise in both arable land and irrigated land area. Existing practices such as using ditches for irrigation are known to be highly inefficient and lead to enormous water wastage. And given the growing water shortage and rising cost of water, focus is being shed on efficient water usage. As a result, innovative irrigation technologies hold strong potential for growth. Modern micro irrigation systems are growing in popularity for its ability to lower the volume of water required for irrigation. Other technologies poised to benefit include turf and landscape irrigation systems, which utilize automatic controllers that are capable of regulating watering using scientific calculations based on plant needs.
