16 February 2016
Research Note

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Water and Electricity has implemented a water tariff increase to residential customers. This effort to improve cost recovery for water supply is part of the country’s broader effort to manage soaring debt, as oil prices drop even further.

In this Research Note, Bluefield analyzes the trend toward increased private participation in Saudi Arabia’s water market, highlighting new player strategies (Japanese investor, French integrated players and Spanish EPCs) and evaluating the impact on local utilities.
