Today we Indians are in desperate need to get quality drinking water leave alone water for other purposes. It is has become very common reading about water wars between states and individuals going to the extent of killing each other for want of water. Water supply in India has become scarily depleting and there are various reasons affecting the same. As India is in the state of transition from a developing nation to a developed one, we tend to see that water plays a very important role to meet the demands for water which are arising from various sectors of the economy.

India Water Industry today is at a desperate situation where it needs to play a well balanced role between supply and demand. As per recent inputs the India Water Industry is at an approximate figure of over USD 14 billion to which 50% being contributed towards the government sector and the rest of the business going to the private sector. Overall India as a nation is growing at an approximate 18% per annum. Way back in 2003, the government of India announced to have a major project launched wherein they would interlink rivers and pass on the excess water of those overflowing rivers to the ones that are running dry and thus increase the water supply. This major project was said to be one of the biggest of its types and was looking to give a major boom in the development of the economy.

Indian Water Companies are all out there burning their lamps late into the night figuring out the best way to address this crisis. With processes like water reuse and wastewater treatment being implemented all across the nation, can help to see a growth in the Indian economy. Today water reuse and wastewater treatment projects are seeing a rising demand and are seen to be growing rapidly at an approximate market size of over USD 400 million. The drinking water and Industry segments are seeing a rapid growth in this area while compared to the rest. Water plays a key role in the development of an economy and hence we tend to see the shortage of the same in a developing economy like India. There are various reasons which have impacted the growth in the water industry. It is necessary to have quality drinking water which ensures good health. Since river water tends to be over polluted in some states, individuals then opt for ground water for daily consumption. Pressures from the environmental front have put the government to ensure efficient wastewater treatment is also another reason for the growth in this area.

The scarcity of water has given rise to water reuse and wastewater treatment which is a fast growing requirement for the nation. The basic reason being that without water nothing can survive on this planet. Water being a natural resource was initially taken for granted which cannot be the same now and hence needs to be used wisely. This has become a national crisis and it is time that we as individuals took up the responsibility of preserving water at a domestic level.
