Over the 10-year period from 2019 to 2028, total capital expenditures (CAPEX) for the top 100 U.S. utilities are projected to total over US$207 billion. These 100 utilities serve over 86.8 million for water, 86.6 million for wastewater, and 40.7 million for stormwater (representing 28% of the water market and 49% of the wastewater market). From population growth to the proliferation of digital technologies to climate change, a host of market factors are impacting where utilities spend their dollars.

Key Questions Addressed
- How much do major utilities across the U.S. plan to spend on CAPEX for the next 10 years?
- Which segments expect the most spend and how has this changed from last year?
- Which infrastructure asset classes (i.e. plants, pipes, pumps, etc.) are slated to see the most investment over the coming years?
- Which utilities are poised for the largest expenditures?
- How do utility per capita spending patterns vary?
- Wastewater represents the lion’s share of utility CAPEX.
- Utilities are investing more in water infrastructure, dollars per capita are on the rise.
- Utilities vary in the services they provide, and therefore their CAPEX spend also varies.
