Covid 19 Analysis


As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, more people are considering using safe digital technology. Rapid deployment by utility companies is the result of natural and regulatory regulations. When the water supply isn't interrupted, it's critical to wash hands and sanitize utensils. Worries about costs and the availability of working remotely for teams may increase demand for digital water solutions in the future years. However, a scarcity of qualified workers might put a crimp in the expansion of the industry. Security breaches might potentially hurt the market.


Market Dynamic



  • Drivers


It is predicted that the worldwide market for digital water solutions will develop rapidly during the projected timeframe because of the increasing requirement for the replacement of ageing water infrastructure.



  • Opportunities


Authorities throughout the globe are using innovative technology in their urban planning strategies to boost economic growth. A wide range of innovative city projects began in 2013 and include a variety of subcomponents, such as energy management systems, building automation systems, intelligent transportation systems, the latest technological systems, and intelligent health care systems. When it comes to creating a smart city, water plays a crucial role. Water and wastewater management systems are part of SWM's innovative infrastructure component. Increasing population, increasing urbanization, skyrocketing food consumption, and exploitation of resources present enormous prospects for SWM solution suppliers in innovative city projects.



  • Restraints


This epidemic has put the energy sector's resilience strategies to the ultimate test, opening the way for more adaptable, reactive methods of working that take full use of contemporary technology. The lack of technologically competent workers at utility companies is one of the most considerable constraints in this age of technology. Additionally, millennials' lack of awareness of the water utilities sector's rapid expansion is a contributing problem. These issues further stifle the market's expansion.



  • Challenges


Climate change, infrastructural concerns, and droughts are causing water shortages. Thus the water utility business has been adapting to suit the needs of a more vibrant and challenging market. Water utilities have turned into digital transformation when it comes to optimizing water usage patterns and offering sustainable solutions.



  • Cumulative Growth Analysis


The advancement of technology allows water utilities to combine corporate operations in a more efficient manner that is helping to propel them forward toward success. Even with little physical investment, they can boost the operating efficiency of the whole water network by combining a variety of innovative technology. These innovations and intelligent infrastructure are used in the development of creative solutions for clients within the innovative water business. Intelligent solutions are predicted to grow in popularity over the next several years as people become more concerned about water quality, groundwater resources become scarcer, consumer expectations increase, and technology improves.
