Driving the water-systems market is privatization, says CG/LA. It found, for example, more than 480 state-owned systems serving at least 100,000 people or more. Already, Argentina and Chile have begun to privatize, while the crisis in Brazil is expected to push the government to speed up the sale of state-owned systems.
"Wastewater is not very sexy, but there's a lot of money to be made," says CG/LA Managing Director Norman Anderson, who says financing such projects will be the biggest challenge.
