Data Insight

In 2017, Bluefield tracked 264 smart water projects globally, up 11% from 238 projects in 2016. The metering, asset and network management segments saw the largest increase.

Smart water project announcements in 2017 were driven by utility responses to regulation, mitigation of water supply risk, and need to adapt to increasingly digital customers.

Demand for smart water solutions is reflected by an increasingly active M&A market. 2017 deals of note include Xylem’s acquisition of Pure Technologies and EQT’s acquisition of Innovyze.
