Infrastructure capacity addition for collection and treatment has not kept pace with population growth. A significant proportion of the total installed capacity is lying non-operational due to poor plant maintenance and the lack of adequate collection networks. Moreover, the bulk of sewage treatment plants (STPs) in India continue to operate on natural and conventional treatment technologies.

Over the last few years, the government, particularly at the central level, has taken a number of steps to improve the country’s sewage treatment infrastructure. Three major programmes - Namami Gange, AMRUT and Smart Cities Mission - have been launched by the government to expand sewerage networks in urban areas. The Namami Gange has been approved by the Cabinet, with an outlay of Rs 200 billion for the next five years.

The concept of recycle and reuse of wastewater has gained significant interest in the country. Industries are also opening up to the idea of deploying advanced technologies to treat effluents, as well as recycle and reuse it for industrial purposes.

There is tremendous potential for producing energy from municipal and industrial wastewater treatment in India. Further, India has the potential to generate approximately 335-448 MUs of power from biogas generated during the sewage treatment process (as per research estimates).

The sewerage sector in India is all set to grow, driven by the government’s ambitious programmes to develop and upgrade sewerage infrastructure in all cities.

This research estimates that 104 sewerage projects involving an investment of over Rs 625 billion are under implementation or are planned to be taken up in the future. With a strong pipeline of projects, the sewerage sector offers several business opportunities across different segments - contractors, consultants, equipment and technology suppliers, material suppliers and other ancillary market segments.

Overall, the outlook for the sector is promising and offers huge opportunities for all stakeholders over the next few years. A large number of water supply projects have been approved and many more are on the cards.
