Project Insight - Water and Sewage Construction Projects: Asia-Pacific
GlobalData’s CoGlobalData’s Construction Intelligence Center (CIC) is currently tracking water and sewage construction projects in Asia-Pacific with a total value of US$161.3 billion. Of this, US$130.2 billion is in the execution stage and US$17.1 billion is in the planning stage. China accounts for the highest value with US$73.7 billion, followed by India with projects valuing US$38.7 billion. Indonesia and Singapore follow with water and sewage construction projects with a value of US$8.0 billion and US$6.4 billion respectively. The highest value water and sewage project is the US$62.0 billion South-North Water Diversion Program in China, which involves the diversion of 44.8 billion m3 water per year from the Yangtze River in southern China to the Yellow River Basin in the north of the country.nstruction Intelligence Center (CIC) is currently tracking water and sewage construction projects in Asia-Pacific with a total value of US$161.3 billion.
Asia-Pacific is the dominant global growth area, and its rapid urbanization and industrialization has created a need for investment in water and sewage infrastructure. Given the rapid industrialization and economic growth of China and India in recent years, it is not surprising that they both head up investment in water and sewage infrastructure, as tracked by the CIC. Although China is responsible for 20% of the world’s population, it contains only 7% of the world’s fresh water, leaving large areas of the country with less water per capita than other major countries in the region. Major pollution of the water supply created by rapid industrialization has further worsened the problem. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) allows members’ companies to invest up to 70% in infrastructure projects regardless of nationality in the region which promotes cross border investment. Manila Water, part of the Philippine conglomerate Ayala, took an 18.72% stake in Thailand's Eastern Water Resources Development and Management, and 20% of the Indonesian water supplier Sarana Tirta Ungaran in 2018.
