Europe’s Private Water Utilities: Company Profiles, Rankings, & Trends, 2016

02 November 2016
Data Insight

Private Water Utility Rankings — Bluefield Ranks Europe’s Leading Utilities by Revenue, Population Served, and Volume Supplied. Includes company profiles of the top Private Water Utilities in Europe.

Europe’s private water sector is a global leader in terms of management model, technology adoption, and network efficiency. The region’s top 15 consolidated private water utilities serve over 147 million of people in 11 countries, covering just under 30% of total population.

Incremental shifts in market-share among the leading players are expected to continue through M&A and reshuffling of utility portfolios. French utilities – Veolia and Suez– remain at the top of the rankings as they continued to shore up domestic positions under France’s ongoing re-municipalization.
