LONDON, November 14 /PRNewswire/ --

Strong growth in the Brazilian Municipal Water and Wastewater Treatment Market in the next seven years. The Brazilian Municipal market is expected to witness double digit growth per year, catalyzed to a large extent by Government investments of about US$25 billion, under the Programa de Aceleracao e Crescimento (PAC) investment plan. The PAC programme is aimed to improve drinking water and sanitation in order to meet one of the key United Nations Millennium Development Goals of guaranteeing access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation to the Brazilian population by 2015. The forecast of this market and the implications it holds for international companies, in particular, will be crucial for those looking to enter in the Brazilian municipal market.

The European Environment Group at Frost Sullivan is pleased to announce its 2008 Quarterly Analyst Briefing Presentation on the Brazilian Municipal Water Wastewater market to be held on Tuesday, 18 November, 2008 at 2:00 pm GMT.

Aiming to provide key insights into this market, this briefing will focus on analysis of two broad segments of water wastewater treatment in the municipal sector in Brazil. The points to be covered in the briefing include key industry challenges, market drivers and restraints and the influence of these market forces on the growth prospects of market and technology segments over the forecast period.

This briefing will be of great benefit for engineering procurement and construction (EPC) companies, manufacturers and distributors of water wastewater treatment technology such as filtration, clarification, disinfection, membrane systems, pre-treatment, primary treatment, secondary treatment (activated sludge, upward anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB), etc), tertiary treatment (nutrient removal systems) and sludge treatment technologies. The briefing will also interest original equipment manufacturers (OEM's), project management consulting organisations as well as equity and analyst firms interested in the water market in general and the Brazilian market in particular.

The Brazilian municipal water and wastewater treatment market is witnessing strong demand for water and wastewater treatment equipment that will lead to strong growth in sales for companies that are able to enter in such a fragmented market and take advantage of its potential. Significant investments such as the PAC investment program and recent changes in legislation are driving growth in sales, particularly, of secondary and tertiary processes for municipal wastewater treatment, which will also provide opportunities for sludge treatment. However, the municipal water and wastewater market in Brazil is characterised by a relatively high domination of local, regional and national companies. International companies should consider establishing strategic alliances, partnerships or even acquiring a reputable local company to have a successful entry and penetrate the high potential for water and wastewater treatment systems in the Brazilian municipal sector notes Frost Sullivan Nuno Oscar Branco, Research Analyst.
