Qatar Water Report

BMI View:   This quarter we have expanded and revised our forecasts to include water extraction by source, mains and household consumption, losses and treated wastewater. Overall , although we see Qatar as one of the most active water infrastructure sectors due to the extensive investment being undertaken in the run up to the 2022 FIFA event, we continue to view the overall water and sanitation services as underdeveloped, particularly the latter , due to the lack of adequate sewage networks and treatment facilities. 

Qatar is one of the largest per capita water consumers in the world, with consumption levels quadruple that of the average European consumer. In order to cater to the vast consumption levels and limited freshwater reserves, the country is focusing on a massive reservoir-development project. At present five reservoirs are under construction or in the tendering process and more are in the pipeline. Desalination facilities and wastewater treatment projects are also seeing extensive investment under the auspices of various Ashghal development programmes; we expect these programmes - designed to boost the country's water availability - will continue, offering numerous opportunities to water infrastructure companies. However, water treatment and sanitation is still extremely underdeveloped and needs a large amount of investment. Robust private consumption on the back of a fast-growing population and large government spending commitments will drive developments in the water supply, distribution and sanitation sectors as demand continues to soar. Over 2022, demand for water is likely to increase by 50% due to the influx of tourists. Ministry officials are putting the level of water needed at around 2mn cubic metres a day during the peak of the event. This will put extreme pressure on the system, resulting in a swathe of government projects into various aspects of the water sector.

Although we expect that the majority of projects related to the FIFA...

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

Analysis of latest projects across the water infrastructure sector including water and wastewater treatment plants, desalination facilities, mains water and sewage network expansions, dams, and hydropower plants.
