Emerging Trends and Foreign Investment Opportunities in Spain’s Water Market

21 May 2024  |  Episode #95  |  with Keith Hays, Maria Cardenal

Spain’s water sector has evolved in light of the country’s unique challenges such as extensive infrastructure buildout in recent decades, population boom, economic recessions, and persistent droughts. Despite these hurdles, Spain has made notable strides in areas including desalination, water management, and technology adoption.

VP & Managing Director Keith Hays and Analyst Maria Cardenal from Bluefield’s Europe team sit down with Podcast Host and Bluefield President & CEO Reese Tisdale. Together, they explore three major trends shaping the Spanish water sector: digitalization, smart water management, and the circular economy.

In addition to these trends, Bluefield’s Europe water experts delve into several key topics:

  • Main challenges facing Spain’s water sector, and how they are being addressed
  • The size of Spain’s water sector, including its relativity to other countries in Europe
  • Government policies and regulations that could influence the development of the water sector moving forward
  • Prominent key players in the Spanish water sector—utilities, technology providers, and consulting firms
  • Opportunities for foreign investors and companies looking to enter the Spanish water market
