LONDON, UK, March 3, 2008 -- Propelled by an expanding industrial and manufacturing sector along with EU directives that stringently regulate wastewater and sludge quality, the water and wastewater treatment market in Poland is proving increasingly attractive. A wide range of opportunities exists for contractors, service providers, consultants as well as equipment and technology suppliers.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Snapshot Study on the Polish Water and Wastewater Treatment Markets, finds that the market earned revenues of $344 million in 2006 and estimates this to reach $639.1 million in 2013.

"The Polish water and wastewater sector is experiencing high growth due to a robust economy which has driven the industrial treatment sector," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Jenny Lieu. "Compliance with EU directives obliging the municipal and industrial sectors to address effluent quality coupled with a large influx of EU funds to finance the development of the water and wastewater sector are also positively impacting market expansion."

Wastewater treatment is the most dynamic segment in the Polish water and wastewater treatment market, accounting for the majority of revenues. Strong industrial performance and EU directives are promoting high growth in secondary, tertiary and sludge treatment technologies, a trend that is projected to continue over the long term.

Water technologies also exhibit growth potential, with the membrane technologies market anticipated to grow significantly due to the continued expansion of the industrial and manufacturing sector and their requirement for advanced treatment solutions.

Fierce competition and a fragmented competitive landscape are, however, pushing down equipment costs, while squeezing profit margins. Furthermore, the lack of support for public-private partnership projects is hindering the progress of firms wishing to enhance their penetration in the municipal market.

"Mounting interest in the market's potential has created a challenging situation for firms wishing to expand their share in the water and wastewater sector," says Lieu. "However, large unmet needs in the sector indicate that numerous opportunities exist for companies that can offer needed technologies at competitive prices."

Foreign companies entering the Polish water and wastewater treatment market will confront difficulties if they are unprepared for the particular challenges that define this market. One of the methods of overcoming this barrier is to create strong partnerships or alliances with well-established local firms.
