Instrument Profile

Understanding the Opportunity:

The world is facing critical water shortages, a situation that is likely to get worse with a booming global population and climate change. The goal of providing safe, clean water for people and agriculture is critical to the planet and one that many companies are working on. Water treatment, smart infrastructure, and efficient delivery are key areas where companies are working to provide solutions.
Water is currently a $500-billion market that could grow to as much as $1 trillion by 2020.¹ Investments are needed along the entire water chain; water-infrastructure projects alone are expected to see annual growth of 5%-8%.*
Companies that focus on addressing the increasing demand for and limited supply of water could represent some of the world’s key growth opportunities today—and in the coming years.
