2018 Market Analysis & Industry Outlook: Water Supply & Irrigation Systems

Overview of the U.S. Water Supply & Irrigation Systems Industry

Water supply and irrigation systems are necessary to support the U.S. population, but can no longer rely solely on government funding and will need to seek private investment.

Local governments own the majority of the nation’s water supply and irrigation systems. The last large-scale system upgrade occurred in the World War Two era. As such, the entire system is in need of major repair if it is to continue to support a growing population. The aging pipes allow contaminants into the water supply, raising safety and regulatory concerns, and a significant percentage of water leaks out before it can be used.

This section provides answers to key questions about the industry:
  1. What is the total market size (industry revenue)?
  2. What is the industry outlook?
  3. Market Analysis: Is the market growing or declining, and how quickly?
  4. Are long-term forecasts positive or negative?
