Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth and is facing mounting challenges with regards to its
future water supply as rainfall levels decline and population growth and urbanization place a strain on
unreliable surface water supply. BMI expects that over the long term water supply will come from
unconventional sources such as desalination and recycled water.
The outlook for the Australian sector is positive as population growth and agricultural demand will support
increases in total water consumption over the longer term, however, per capita water consumption is
expected to trend downwards over the forecast period 2013-2017. The decline in per capita household water
consumption is set to continue as BMI is expecting water tariffs to increase as desalination, a more
expensive water treatment process, is looking set to become increasingly common. Furthermore, with
climate change leading to lower rainfall levels the government is attempting to educate the population about
ways to conserve water, imposing restrictions on water usage such as hours between when watering of the
garden is permitted.
