Segmenting Utility CAPEX – U.S. Municipal Water Infrastructure Forecast

20 September 2019
Focus Report

(Report included with US & Canada Municipal Insight service subscription)

Municipal utilities in the U.S. are forecasted to spend US$629 billion on capital expenditures (CAPEX) over the next decade to address increasing demands on water and wastewater infrastructure. While the baseline forecast projects a 2.6% annual growth rate, in-line with historical trends, Bluefield Research’s scenario analyses highlight a potential US$107 billion swing over the ten-year forecast period.

Bluefield’s new Focus Report details municipal utility CAPEX in 50 states, five U.S. territories, and Washington, D.C., breaking down the forecasted spending across 21 categories (e.g. plants, pipes, pumping stations) that represent the lion’s share of infrastructure investment. Bluefield’s scenario forecasts weigh the impact of dynamic factors, including funding availability, regulatory enforcement, contaminants of concern, and macroeconomic shifts.
