Global Smart Water: Market Trends, Competitive Shifts, & Project Activity H1 2017


Bluefield Research is optimistic about the scaling opportunities for smart water, globally. Our team of water experts tracks market drivers and strategies shaping this growing market. This Data Insight is released semi- annually for clients of our Municipal Water Insight Services.

Smart water project announcements in the first half of 2017 were driven by utility responses to water scarcity, complying with local market regulations, and vendor M&A. These deals reflect shifting opportunities to capture value, evident across the municipal water value chain.

The U.S. (66 projects) and U.K. (14) were the most active smart water markets during the first six months of 2017, followed regionally by the Asia Pacific (14), and the Middle East (9).
