Hungary Water Report

BMI VIew: Hungary has considerable issues with regards to its water industry, as its drinking water supply and infrastructure struggle to meet EU standards. The country's water sector is beginning to see significant investment from its own government and the EU, as part of the New Hungary Development Plan, and there is a healthy project pipeline. Meanwhile, a declining population is placing little strain on the existing infrastructure, and the streamlining of processes is guiding our forecast for a decline in extraction and consumption over our five-year forecast period to 2018.

We view the country's water and wastewater utilities sector as one of the more attractive and open in the region, offering greater opportunities than many of its European peers. This is due to the large private sector presence, and the varying ownership profiles which offer a range of different roles for potential private sector entrants, both domestic and international. However the erratic legislation, and the inadequate water charges pose significant deterrents.

Significant funding is being aimed at Hungary's water sector. Nevertheless, much of the country's drinking water and related infrastructure falls below minimum EU standards, with Budapest's water quality in particular failing to meet EU environmental standards. There are, however, a large number of plans in development, particularly to address existing pollution issues resulting from the dearth of adequate wastewater treatment facilities.

The large-scale improvement projects designed to bring Hungary's wastewater and drinking water standards into line with EU requirements are still some years from completion. However, we remain optimistic about opportunities in the water sector open as it is to domestic and foreign investment from across infrastructure and water services segments, as rising water demand drives legislative improvements and investment in mains and sewage networks and wastewater treatment facilities.

BMI’s Water Risk Reward Index

BMI’s Risk Reward Indices provide investors (water management, water utility and water infrastructure companies) looking for opportunities in the region with a clear country-comparative assessment of a market’s risks and potential rewards. Each of the country markets are scored using a sophisticated model that includes more than 40 industry, economic and demographic data points to provide indices of highest to lowest appeal to investors, with each position explained.

Market Overview

This is broken down into the following sectors:

  • Water supply & Consumption: Where the water comes from, (rivers, springs, lakes, surface water, ground water and so on), key trends with regards to extraction, key trends with regards to overall water consumption, municipal or domestic consumption, and key industrial and agricultural consumption trends.
  • Water distribution: This examines how the water is distributed – whether by municipalities, regional organisations or national companies, whether the water networks are nationalised or privatised, and key trends and developments.
  • Water Treatment & sanitation: This section evaluates the country’s water pollution levels, the connectivity to water mains and sewage networks, the volumes and methods of water treatment, government initiatives with regards to treatment and sanitation processes and key projects, trends and developments.
  • Regulations & Tariffs: Key national and regional legislations with regards to water pollution, extraction and distribution as well as an overview of water rates for domestic and industrial users.

Industry Trends & Developments
