GWI’s New Market Intelligence Tool WaterData Enhances Water Sector Strategy and Planning
Global Water Intelligence (GWI) has announced the launch of a new platform designed to empower water businesses in strategy building, market assessment and competitor analysis processes. WaterData provides a comprehensive map of the municipal and industrial water and wastewater markets, both providing a top-level view of market trends and slicing the sector by region, technology domain, digital solutions and the industrial sectors. Supported by granular market size data, forecasts, databases and third party sources, GWI intends the platform to be a single-source for all data critical to business planning in the water industry.
Christopher Gasson, GWI Publisher commented: “Water is a highly fragmented industry, which means that the information is all over the place as well. I came up with the idea of WaterData to bring it all together – not just our own content like market forecasts, company profiles and technology analysis – but also the third party datasets on which much of our analysis is based. It has revolutionised the way I work, and I think it will revolutionise the way you work as well if you are involved in validating strategy, developing new markets, presenting proposals, or screening companies or technologies.”
Global Water Intelligence is an industry leader in market intelligence for the water sector. In its 15 years, GWI has expanded its specialisms across the core water markets as well as those that make in impact on the industry, such as the digital sphere and industrial markets. The culmination of GWI’s substantive expertise is a comprehensive data-rich online platform with enhanced functionality that integrates into the user’s day-to-day planning and workflow. Each area of the platform has a specializing analyst updating the forecasts, datasets and insights as pivotal market information and developments emerge.
