Cleaning up: Expanded domestic economic output will benefit the industry

Over the past five years, the Sewage Treatment Facilities industry in Canada has benefited from a growing population alongside expanded economic output, stimulating demand for industry services. Further, continued investment into industry facilities to meet new regulatory requirements has helped expand industry activity. IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue has increased over the five years to 2019. Moving forward, the industry will benefit from expanded domestic economic output, stimulating business demand for industry services. However, slowing population growth and declining per capita water usage will constrain industry growth and overall IBISWorld forecasts industry revenue will rise over the five years to more.
