2022 was a year of ups and downs for the global digital water market. The onset of the Russia-Ukraine war, persistent inflationary pressures, and lingering supply chain challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic made investors skittish, curtailing strategic and financial investment in the digital water startup ecosystem. Even so, utility demand for digital solutions remained resilient, buttressed by major post-COVID-19 infrastructure funding programs in key global water markets.
