Bluefield Research is an independent advisory firm that was founded to help utilities, companies, and organizations address the challenges in water.


“The immense scale of water distribution and collection networks [in many parts of the world] is one of humanity’s greatest achievements. Behind it all is a complex web of policies, utility requirements, supply chain strategies, and disparate stakeholders that is being forced to adapt to emerging market, environmental, and competitive threats… thereby shaping the future of water.”

We believe that water is the most pressing issue facing our generation.

Maintaining the status quo in management, investment, and operations is no longer an option and requires new strategies, alternative business models, and innovative solutions. Bluefield was founded in 2012 to be at the leading edge of this change to support companies, utilities, and organizations confronting the challenge.

Why Bluefield?

We focus on water. A team of analysts exclusively focused on water, wastewater & stormwater across global industrial and municipal sectors.

We deliver insights: Independent analysis without the distractions and influences of event management, news distribution, and corporate sponsorships.

Our perspectives are global. Our global team of water experts applies a range of experiences from business, engineering, and infrastructure (e.g. energy, power, telecom) and regulatory sectors to global water infrastructure markets.



Transparency is critical. Clients can confidently follow and question our research methodology and approach for their own strategic planning, board meetings, and earnings calls.

Proprietary data. We know companies are often challenged by a lack of high quality, reliable intelligence in water, so we have built our own databases and dashboards to bridge the gap.

Access to analysts. Ongoing client support, including assumption verification, methodology reviews, and workshops strengthen clients’ knowledge and decision making.


Water market intelligence designed to match client needs.

Three distinctive products include:

  1. Annual Insight Services  for ongoing analysis and analyst support
  2. Insight Reports available for off-the-shelf purchase
  3. Consulting Services to address client-specific questions

At any level, Bluefield delivers robust, in-depth data and analysis not provided anywhere else in the water sector.
