World Water Infrastructure Equipment to 2016

World demand for water infrastructure equipment is projected to increase more than six percent per year to exceed $100 billion in 2016. Advances will result from two key factors: in developing nations, access to water supply and sanitation will be increased; in developed nations, aging water infrastructure will need repair and upgrade.

Plastic pipe, meters among fastest growing products
Among products, plastic pipe will post strong gains through 2016, continuing to steadily take market share from other pipe materials. Rising demand for plastic pipe will be driven by its inexpensiveness compared to metal or concrete. Meters –particularly smart meters — will post solid gains due to suppliers’ attempts to reduce operational costs and leakage.

Expansion of sanitation services to drive gains in developing nations
In less developed nations, gains will be prompted by expansion of sanitation services, access to which in many countries remains considerably lower than for water supply systems. In the least developed parts of Asia and Africa, market gains will be among the fastest in the world, but even that robust level of growth will leave several hundred million people without access to safe water or even minimal sanitation facilities. Virtually by definition, infrastructure construction in developing nations has been hampered by funding issues. However, government and nongovernmental organizations are increasing their focus on the issue of water management, which will provide opportunities for equipment suppliers.

Upgrades, repairs to aging pipe networks to pompt growth in developed markets
In the most developed markets — particularly the US — gains will result from efforts to upgrade and repair aging sewer and water pipe networks. Funding will continue to be the key issue facing the industry in developed nations. Government entities, faced with budgetary limitations, have historically neglected water infrastructure in favor of higher profile projects. Many current water systems have pipelines over a century old, leading to increased main breaks.

Study coverage
This upcoming Freedonia industry study, World Water Infrastructure Equipment, is priced at $6100. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, plus forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (e.g., pipe, pumps, valves, meters), application (supply water, wastewater), world region and for 22 major countries. The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles industry competitors.

Infrastructure in Mozambique

Mozambique Infrastructure Report

BMI View: Mozambique’s construction sector is the most dynamic in the southern African region and the country’s huge mining and export hub potential is driving investment into transport and electricity infrastructure. Projects are being developed by deep-pocketed mining companies, meaning they are more likely to progress than in other parts of the region that are dependent on development funding or government backing. With projects worth a combined US$25bn planned or under way, we are forecasting average annual growth of 7.7% over the medium term (2012-2016).

A strong medium-term project pipeline will sustain strong growth. A number of projects were announced in late 2011 and early 2012, which will drive expansion into 2012 and 2013. The industry will benefit from sustained demand for Mozambique’s exports, primarily coal demand from India.

However, with Mozambique’s infrastructure sector so directly linked to mining activity, our forecasts are predicated on a number of factors:
The primary driver of growth in Mozambique’s infrastructure sector has been coal mining, with Indian demand sustaining significant investment. Insatiable demand for electricity in India is leading to huge investment in coal power plants, and Indian power companies are looking further afield for coal resources. While we expect demand for coal across the developed world to decline over the medium term, we do not anticipate a slowdown in India’s consumption of thermal coal, which should sustain investment in Mozambique.
Transport infrastructure has benefited from a number of investment pledges, with efforts concentrated on the Nacala and Sena transport corridors (linking the mining regions to the ports of Nacala and Beira). Mining companies are leading the way in terms of investment in railways and ports; this was demonstrated in January 2012, when Vale signed a US$1bn agreement to build the Malawian section of the 900km Nacala corridor (which links the Moatize mines with the Nacala Port).
Electricity generation has also garnered considerable investment, with mining companies once again taking on an active role. Vale, Riversdale Mining and Jindal Power & Steel have all announced one gigawatt (GW) of coal-fired power plant projects in an effort to tap the growing domestic market. At the same time, Mozambique is planning to expand capacity at the Cahora Bassa dam. Eletrobras announced plans to build a 1,500MW hydropower plant in the country, as well as two 1,500km transmission lines, worth a combined US$6bn.
A major threat to our forecast comes in the form of government revenues, which are insufficient to meet the infrastructure funding gap, and thereby highlighting the importance of external financing. Consequently, multilaterals like the World Bank and African Development Bank (AfDB), as well as state credit agencies, remain an important source of funding for infrastructure in Mozambique. Increasingly, investment into freight transport and electricity infrastructure is being supported by private finance, with cash-rich mining companies executing a build-yourown strategy with regard to infrastructure. Private finance has therefore become crucial to investment, and any threat to corporate financing or mining companies’ profitability could dent investment in infrastructure.
While infrastructure investment is primarily focused on supporting the mining sector, demand for passenger transport projects and residential and commercial utilities should lead to rapid expansion – with real GDP growth expected to average 7.5% between 2012 and 2016, and GDP per capita expected to increase from US$628 to US$972. This should generate a rise in electrification and water access rates over our forecast period, necessitating new transmission and distribution infrastructure. Investment into roads will be strong under the second phase of the Programa Integrado do Sector das Estradas (PRISE) Road Sector Integration programme (2010-2014), which is overseeing planned investment of US$1.5bn to improve the quality of the country’s road network. Funding has been pledged by a number of development banks.
