Frost & Sullivan’s Environment and Water program area includes environmental and water technologies & services, both municipal and industrial, as well as waste to energy and recycling
Corporations and governments are increasing their awareness and activity around mitigating environmental issues, trying to find ways to ensure clean air and water while still growing businesses and economies. New technical solutions can help reduce usage and wastes through smart Water and smart metering for example, which will extend into pumping stations, municipal water, and wastewater treatment infrastructure. Recycling and resource recovery opportunities will be central across several segments as well to help create a stronger business case beyond regulatory compliance. And new opportunities around growing freshwater demand and concerns will help drive markets such as desalination and fracking water remediation
