Booming Urbanization in Egypt Expands the Scope for Recycle, Reuse and Refurbishment Projects for Water and Wastewater
The $1.35 billion Sector to Grow Steadily to Reach $2.37 billion in 2015
With Egypt’s population projected to grow from 83.0 million in 2010 to 95.0 million in 2015, the Government should be prepared to deal with a huge strain on the country’s water resources. Worldwide, the average water availability is approximately 7,000 cubic meters per person per year, whereas in Egypt, it is 860 cubic meters per capita per year. If this state of affairs persists, water scarcity will reach critical levels, and the per capita availability will reduce by half by 2050. This alarming drop in water availability will be of considerable interest to the water and wastewater sector, as the situation offers it abundant opportunities for the development of water and wastewater treatment and distribution and sewage collection networks in the country. As fresh water availability is forecast to decline in the coming years, utilities are focusing on wastewater treatment and its recycle and reuse. The water and wastewater sector has experienced significant investments, especially from private participants, as it holds promise for both domestic and international water and wastewater infrastructure developers.
“The rising emphasis on the development of the water and wastewater sector due to the substantial infrastructure investments is expected to result in an increase in desalination capacity,” says the analyst of this research. “The government approved the public-private partnership (PPP) law in April 2010, and this is expected to lay the foundation for privately financed and operated water projects in the waste water and desalination sectors.” Although the inflow of investments bodes well for the sector, participants will be pressured by challenges such as the lack of connected sanitary sewers, poor operation and insufficient wastewater treatment facilities. While these inadequacies have led to poor water quality and scant infrastructure and municipal services. Alongside, swelling water demand in the neighbouring countries has led to intensifying regional tensions. The Egyptian Government has acknowledged these issues, and intends to resolve them by introducing new water systems in more than 4,600 villages and extending sewer services to all urban areas. These large-scale projects offer ample scope for potential investors and developers in the sector.
Meanwhile, technology providers in the sector should seek partnerships with consultants and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors, offering cost-effective technologies. “They should also consider offering value additions in terms of incremental improvements in design and engineering, operation and maintenance, and on-the-job staff training,” notes the analyst. “These enhancements will have significant impact on the overall cost of the solution without compromising its performance.”
