Water is a half-trillion dollar industry critical for industry and agriculture. Increasing water stress and creaking infrastructure creates an opportunity for technologies ranging from basic materials to complete systems. Advances in membranes, analytics, and biological treatment are transforming this traditionally conservative industry.
 
In our ongoing coverage of water technologies, Lux Research helps companies make intelligent decisions to:
