China is in urgent need of environmental technologies – a huge market is opening up for manufacturers of pipes, valves and monitoring equipment. A report
Dirty rivers, heavily polluted ground water, water scarcity and poor air quality in large cities not only harm people, but also China’s economy. This can no longer continue. Stricter environmental laws in Chinese state leadership should flip the switch and contribute to the health of the country. But without suitable environmental technologies – particularly from the piping industry – this will not succeed. Companies from around the globe can expect lucrative contracts.
“Urbanisation is a worldwide phenomenon,” reports Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI). Half of the world’s population lives in a city today. According to the UN, by 2030 the number of megacities will rise to 41 worldwide, each with over 10 million inhabitants and thus increase the rate of urbanisation to 60%. “This poses great challenges for the cities in question,” according to GTAI. Especially as there are also forecasts that believe that in China in particular there could be an increase to about 220 million-population cities by 2025.
