Increasing Investment in Water and Wastewater Infrastructure to Drive the Market Growth

Water and sanitation infrastructure is crucial for public health, environmental sustainability, and economic growth. There is an increased number of aging water and wastewater systems that require significant investment to improve their efficiency and protect public health and the environment. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States, the nation's water and sanitation infrastructure requires an additional investment of USD 629 billion to maintain and upgrade the systems.

The significance of investment in water and sanitation infrastructure has been increasingly recognized in recent years, and governments and private investors are committed to supporting these critical systems. The main benefit of investing in water and sanitation infrastructure is that it can improve public health and safety. Safe drinking water is essential to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases, which can have serious consequences for the health of individuals and communities. Inadequate sanitation facilities can also contribute to waterborne diseases and other public health problems owing to which market vendors are focusing on investments in sanitation infrastructure which fosters the market size. 

Availability of Cloud-based SCADA System in Water and Wastewater Management to Augment the Market Growth

Water treatment plants and water usage facilities can do their part by making sure their monitoring equipment is up-to-date and as accurate as possible. The cloud-based SCADA collects real-time data from hazardous areas, which can then be researched, compared, and shared with researchers in a more efficient, digital manner. Researchers can have the most precise knowledge to capitalize on by comparing the data points, which would lead to better outcomes and faster responses. The cloud computing platform allows water and wastewater utilities to leverage redundancy and disaster recovery capabilities far more than traditional water and wastewater utilities, providing lucrative opportunities for market growth.
