BMI V iew: In order to meet EU standards, the Czech Republic has been forced to upgrade almost every aspect of its water sector. This has resulted in the formation of an impressive industry that is modern and runs extremely efficiently. Improvements are, however, ongoing and there is certainly plenty of room for further modernisation. We forecast that ultimately there will be a decline in water consumption in the country due to the continuing developments to the sewer network, and to the water infrastructure.
The hard work that went into improving the Czech water sector in order to comply with EU regulations means that the market represents a fantastic opportunity for water dependent industries. This work is ongoing and developments continue to abound, however, it should be noted that as the need for development starts to decline so could the need for outside investment but at present the Czech water sector offers a good range of opportunities. The market appears to have reached maturity, however, the ongoing need for easily accessible water means demand for improvement will continue.
As the Czech Republic introduces modern technologies and machinery and upgrades its water sector, the amount of wasted water will continue to fall. This has been seen in many other countries and results in a reduction of the amount of water consumed by the country. BMI forecasts that the water sector will keep pace with demographic expansion and continue to grow and improve in a period of slow growth for the Czech population.
