NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Water and Wastewater Treatment (WWWT) Market in Brunei, Hong Kong, Maldives, and Taiwan - A CEO 360 Degree Perspective


Uncharted Territories in the WWWT Map Offer Specific Opportunities

The water and wastewater treatment market in Brunei, Hong Kong, Maldives, and Taiwan is likely to offer mid- to long-term business opportunities for market participants with specific opportunities, which are often mutually exclusive. The need for water and wastewater treatment varies in these countries due to the level of market maturity, market demand, and the use of advanced technologies. Brunei and Taiwan strive for better industrial WWWT applications, while Hong Kong is set to explore desalination as a viable treatment option in the future. Maldives will continue to focus on improving water supply and sanitation for its tourism industry.

Executive Summary—CEO 360 Perspectives

Mega Trends
•Water management in island countries such as Maldives, Hong Kong, and Taiwan are unique as they are constrained by size, isolated from mainland, and have limited natural resources.
•Increasing urbanization in Brunei, Taiwan, and Maldives will influence major investments for WWWT needs in the near future as increasing urbanization will boost up the rising demand of clean water.

Industry Convergence and Technology
•All four countries have well-established water treatment infrastructures that use various treatment technologies; this ensures approximately X% of the population have potable water supply.
•Hong Kong has one of the most efficient WWWT infrastructure in Asia-Pacific, with utilization of wide range of chemical and anti-bacterial purifying technologies.

•While Maldives has emphasized on the service sector, particularly in tourism, the government aims to expand its industrial sector's contribution to the GDP. Textile manufacturing, food processing, and communications are the key industries that will play a significant role in the country's economy.
•As the governments are the major stakeholders in the water industry, water price is usually subsidized, thereby resulting in a relatively low water rate in these countries.

Competitive and Best Practices
•Strict government regulations in Taiwan have created a demand for industrial WWWT equipment and wastewater recycling systems, with customers being high-tech manufacturing firms.
•While all Xcountries are relatively open to private investments in their water industries, market participants that could provide specific solutions would stand a better chance in market penetration and expansion. For low-cost simple technologies, local market participants may have the market advantage and necessary networks.

•Taiwan's growth in semiconductor industry will spur the demand for industrial water treatment systems. In Brunei, the demand is propelled by its oil and gas industry and local manufacturing sector.
•With the exception of Taiwan, the government and related entities are the biggest customers of WWWT equipment and services.

Key Takeaway

1. Expansion and retrofit of existing WWWT plants are the focus in all countries.
2. Rural development in WWWT, especially in Brunei, is emphasized. Maldives has the focus on remote WWWT systems in tourist spots.
3. Foreign market participants, especially technology suppliers, are needed, although local service providers are present, mainly in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
4. Reduction of non-revenue water (NRW) and reuse of wastewater are key improvement areas in all countries.
5. In terms of prioritization, foreign market participants should target the countries in the following order: Taiwan, Brunei, Hong Kong, and Maldives.
