Up to half of hospital patients globally suffer from waterborne diseases. Issues such as water quality, quantity, and infrastructure have an important impact on the market. While developed nations in Europe and North America have stable supplies and high quality standards, basic challenges are still being confronted in the developing world and water management will play an increasing role in solving these problems.
