"Egypt Water Report Q2 2011" is now available at Fast Market Research

Recently published research from Business Monitor International, "Egypt Water Report Q2 2011", is now available at Fast Market Research

PRLog - Apr. 13, 2011 - In light of the chaos that has affected Egypt in the wake of Hosni Mubarak's resignation in early February, and the creation of a military-led transitional administration, there is little likelihood of any substantive developments aimed at moving centrepiece water projects forward. Egypt's public private partnership (PPP) market has clearly lost momentum and will only regain it once the political situation stabilises. This also applies to the wider water sector, with projects likely to remain on hold for the next two quarters at least, as Egypt seeks to lay the foundations for a new post-president-Mubarak constitution.

There is now downside risk to Egypt's capacity to increase water consumption by more than 1bn cubic metres per year (m3/y) by 2014, given the political turmoil that has affected the country and the likelihood that the new interim administration will not seek to prioritise a slate of PPP-backed water projects. Much of the increase hinged on a series of water supply and wastewater treatment plants coming on stream over the next four years. With general wariness over the role of the private sector expected to increase, Egypt may find it a struggle to meet planned water production of 7.23bn cubic metres per year (m3/y) by 2014. However, if new political apparatus is formed quickly, and those charged with governing the country are able to secure foreign developer interest, any disruption to the water sector's expansion could be transitory. Events over the next six months will reveal whether the change in the political climate will be seen as a positive or a negative for Egypt's water sector.

BMI does not anticipate any significant moves on headline PPP water projects - which were to play a central role in meeting rising water demand domestically. The clique of senior military officers now in temporary charge will be opposed to any moves towards privatisation, given that many of the retired generals operate military-owned companies in a number of industrial and infrastructure sectors. Furthermore, as the ardently pro-reformist Finance Minister Youssuf Boutros-Ghalli failed to complete the privatisation of state assets, it is hard to see a new administration, even a democratically-elected one, having sufficient ambition to push aggressively for PPP water schemes.

Government estimates suggest that Egypt would need water resources totalling around 86bn m3 by 2017 if it is to meet fast-rising demand, but a state-commissioned report estimates that the country is only likely to have access to little more than 70bn m3.

As a result of the creation of an interim government under the auspices of Egypt's military in February 2011, there will be no substantive changes to the wider regulatory framework governing the country's water sector. However, in light of the need to placate public anger - many have been agitated by rising water prices - there may well be moves over the forecast period to lighten the pricing burden on consumers.
