Australian Water and Wastewater Market Forecast to 2022: Focus on Digital Transformation – Two-speed Transformation Expected as Large Customers Innovate Faster than the Rest

DUBLIN, Sept. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The “Digital Transformation in the Australian Water and Wastewater Market, Forecast to 2022” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The scope of the addressable market for this study is the water and wastewater utility market (including council-run water and wastewater operations). This excludes water and wastewater assets operated in-house by commercial and industrial enterprises for their own use. Segments included in the scope are hardware, software, on-site communications, and services. The market is also analyzed by smart water meter solutions and the rest of the intelligent water utility network.

The key factors that promote digital transformation in Australia’s water and wastewater market are: the increasing need for optimizing performance and efficiency, focus on customer service improvements, billing revenue and accuracy, and the need to reduce non-revenue water loss. This study investigates the digitalization of the water and wastewater market in Australia, whereby the primary focus of Australian utilities is on digital expenditure across the network rather than only smart water meter roll-outs. Large, urban utilities tend to show greater digital maturity, as well as the willingness and capacity to invest in digital transformation than small, rural utilities.

Performance and efficiency optimization, customer service improvements, billing revenue, and accuracy, ensuring sustainable water supply, emphasis on workplace safety, regulatory and technological changes, and the need to reduce non-revenue water loss are the key drivers of digital transformation in the Australian water and wastewater market. Budgetary constraints, conservative attitudes/risk-averse mindset, difficulty in articulating return on investments (ROI), benefits, and costs, aging workforce and infrastructure, and varying awareness of technology and vendors are key restraints to digital solutions uptake.

In the long run, decentralized systems, water-energy linkages, recycling, and resource recovery from wastewater will present new opportunities to digital solutions providers. Consulting and cyber security services will gain traction in the long term. These will be important, as water supply sustainability and overall security are main agendas for water-scarce Australia. Key competitive tools for the digital solutions market include cost, technology, and expertise; scale and capabilities in the water and wastewater market; and a strong safety (and risk management) record.
