SINGAPORE, Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- While developed nations in Asia-Pacific are completely digitizing their water assets and establishing smart water grids, the developing nations are focusing more on building the infrastructure needed to provide safe and reliable drinking water and sanitation facilities. The urban water infrastructure market is expected to surge ahead with key investments in the replacement of old pipes, expansion of the existing pipe network, water treatment, water reclamation, stormwater harvesting, quake resilience, and improving the consumer infrastructure.

"Digital water assets apply data science and augmented intelligence techniques to business challenges to enable accurate, real-time monitoring, and quality control of water assets. Greater digitization will not only reduce response times but also protect water assets and lower energy use," noted Melvin Leong, Director, Energy & Environment, Asia-Pacific at Frost & Sullivan. "Besides, advanced technologies allow utilities to predict failures, giving them an edge in proactive resolution."
