CAPEX and OPEX Outlook: Gauging the Impacts of Inflation, Recession, and Stimulus on Water Utility Spend in the U.S. and Canada
In this client webcast, Bluefield's water experts will provide an overview of Bluefield’s 2022-2030 forecast for capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operating expenditure (OPEX) for water and wastewater utilities in the U.S. & Canada. CAPEX forecasts include 15 key segments ranging from linear assets (e.g., distribution and collection network infrastructure) to vertical assets (e.g., plants and pump stations). OPEX forecasts include 12 major budget categories such as labor, energy, chemicals, and plant/system maintenance.

This webcast offers a timely assessment of the U.S. & Canada water market outlook at a moment of change, evaluating the impact of current inflationary and recessionary forces, funding initiatives, and labor & supply chain dynamics on utility CAPEX and OPEX from 2022 to 2030.

Key questions addressed in this presentation:

• What factors are driving infrastructure investment among water and wastewater utilities?
• How are current macroeconomic forces such as inflation, recession, and stimulus funding shifting operating costs and capital spend for water and wastewater utilities in the U.S. and Canada?
• Where are the top opportunities for investment by segment and geography?
• What trends or developments may accelerate or impede CAPEX or OPEX growth across the U.S. & Canada sector moving forward?
