DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Evolving Business Models for Water Utilities in Southeast Asia" report to their offering.
In Southeast Asia (SEA), 5 major challenges are identified in water utility sectors, comprising environmental and social challenges, high percentage of non-revenue water (NRW), underdeveloped water utility infrastructure, growing expenditure on water utility, and lack of investments. The new forecast for water utilities' capital expenditure (CAPEX) in 2016 touches nearly $6.50 billion. The construction of new water facilities and the rehabilitation of existing water infrastructure remain steadfast in this region.
Water utilities operation expenditure (OPEX) is re-forecast to slightly above $4.50 billion in 2016. As the general economic sentiments remain volatile, expenditure is more likely to be lean as water utilities undertake cost cutting measures on non-critical treatment overheads (energy and labor).
This study discusses the 5 main challenges as mentioned above. One of the major issues affecting water utilities in the SEA developing countries is the high percentage of non-revenue water (NRW). Old business models in water utilities are largely based on revenue collection from customers, storm-water management, and management of water facilities, including capacity expansion.
With all these impactful challenges, water utilities need to change their operations and business approach by creating value-add initiatives that promote customer satisfaction, management efficiency, resource sustainability, and betterment of the environment.
