Cleaning up: Consumption growth will fuel revenue and private companies will expandAbstractSewage Treatment Facilities in the US
Revenue for the Sewage Treatment Facilities industry has grown over the five years to 2017. Waste volumes have increased since 2012 as consumers and businesses generated more wastewater during the economic expansion. In turn, operators sought rate increases from public utility commissions (PUCs), which were approved and then passed on to the industry’s customers, boosting profit margins and revenue. The industry will grow substantially over the five years to 2022 as growth in the US economy solidifies, driving consumption upward across many sectors of the economy. Wastewater volumes will increase as consumption expands among households and businesses. Despite minor declines in per capita water use as a result of increased water-conservation efforts, rate increases will still lead the way as industry operators experience revenue growth for handling higher volumes of wastewater.
