Water Infrastructure and Repair Technology (WIRT) Market By Infrastructure Type (Fresh/Potable Water Infrastructure, Drinking Water Infrastructure, And Waste Water Infrastructure), By Repair Technology (Remote Assessment & Monitoring, Open & Cut-Pipe Repair, Spot Assessment & Repair, And Trenchless Pipe Repair) – Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2017 – 2025

Globally the maintenance cost of the water infrastructure, is very high. This is one of the major reasons for lack of attention in many countries towards repair and maintenance. In recent years, better technologies are being presented in the repair of water infrastructure, globally.

Rust is the major damaging factor for water pipelines and its related infrastructure. Since the repair and maintenance bills were included in the consumer bills, the infrastructure was thus subjected to huge neglect by the stake owners. A decade ago, the special budget requirement in maintenance of the infrastructure was very low and thus low impetus was stressed upon it. With rising need for sanitation, safe and unadulterated water, special budget for repair and maintenance of water infrastructure was increased. Live data collection of the fallacies, less involvement of human in detection of fallacies and new technologies like CIPP (cured in-place pipe lining) made the repair and maintenance of water infrastructure more streamlined. With growing impetus on sanitation and health hazards due contaminated water consumption, the infrastructure’s repair and maintenance are being looked upon with vital importance. The stakeholders of the water infrastructure have special budget allotment especially for the repair and maintenance

Remote assessment and monitoring (onsite wastewater treatment system) is an important part of infrastructure that serves many large/small municipalities and industrial facilities. These systems are reliable, protective and appropriate in numerous situation. Owing to increasing urbanization, rising population, increasing public health awareness, water quality issues have to be catered to with utmost importance. The WIRT provides sophisticated technology and treatment with disciplined analysis of diagnosis methods applied for system failure or malfunction.

 Smaller cities are now being developed into world-class cities with major developments in the IT sector, oil and gas, chemical, manufacturing, production and others. With new cities in development, the need for infrastructure upgradation or permanent replacement or new installation would be required. New technologies are being introduced in repair, maintenance and upgradation of water infrastructure like spot assessment, remote assessment and monitoring amongst others. These technologies comply with the industrial standards.

Global Water infrastructure and repair technologies (WIRT) market is segmented by region into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. In 2016, Asia Pacific led the global water infrastructure and repair technologies (WIRT) market followed by North America and Europe. The cumulative share of Asia Pacific and North America is expected to be about 40% by value of the total market size in 2025. The developing countries of Africa (including Nigeria, South Africa, Angola, Kenya, Ghana, and Ivory Coast), and Latin America (including Peru, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile amongst others) are the other attractive market for WIRT after Asia Pacific during the forecast period.

The key water infrastructure developers, suppliers and service providers are, but not limited to: - 3M Company, Aclara Technologies LLC, Action Products Marketing Corp., Advanced Trenchless Inc., Black & Veatch, Brandenburger Liner Gmbh & Co. KG, Brawoliner, EEG Ltd., Electro Scan Inc., KMB Pipe Rehabilitation Emirates L.L.C., Krausz Ltd., Lanzo Trenchless Technologies, Mueller Water Products Inc., and National Liner LLC.

Water Infrastructure and Repair Technology (WIRT) Market

In 2016, Asia Pacific led the global water infrastructure and repair technology (WRIT) market followed by North America. The Asia Pacific region had the highest number of new WIRT technologies installations specifically in China, India, Japan, and South Korea. The region is expected to have wide outreach for new repair technologies such as like spot assessment, open and cut-pipe repair and trenchless pipe repair during the forecast period.

With growing population and urbanization, the construction activities involves more digging and excavation operations. There may be a danger where the existing water infrastructure could get damaged. Thus the repair and maintenance activities are under huge demand in the developing nations like China, India, Nigeria and Indonesia, globally, since the construction and infrastructure building activities are growing at a very high rate.

By 2025, the Asia Pacific and North America would be the high growth regions. Asia Pacific, with countries like China and India, is expected to have the highest market outreach than any other region. More impetus have been stressed on the conservation of water in the developing countries. Thus, the water infrastructure and repair technology (WRIT) market is expected to witness healthy growth, globally, for the forecast period.
