- New study reports that market opportunities related to water sector are expected to reach $1 trillion by 2025
- OriginClear perfectly positioned to gain competitive advantage, achieve commercial success
- CEO outlines significant milestones the company has reached to strengthen presence in this exploding market
In his weekly CEO Briefings, OriginClear Inc. (OTC: OCLN) CEO Riggs Eckelberry discussed a recent report, titled ‘Water: The Market of the Future’, which asserts that market opportunities related to the water sector are expected to reach $1 trillion by 2025 (http://ibn.fm/c2Apn). Eckelberry noted that OriginClear has worked hard over the past year to become perfectly positioned to make the most of these opportunities.
The study, released by Switzerland-based international investment company RobecoSAM, examines key megatrends that are shaping the water market and explores the investment opportunities that are arising from these trends. Those trends include the following:
- Population growth;
- Aging infrastructure;
- Necessary water-quality improvements; and
- Climate change altering water-resource availability.
“Such trends generate risks and opportunities for companies and investors alike,” the report reads. “Market opportunities related to the water sector are expected to reach USD $1 trillion by 2025. Companies that are early to respond and take steps to exploit the market opportunities associated with these water-related challenges are more likely to gain a competitive advantage and achieve commercial success.”
OriginClear is one of those companies responding and taking steps. “We have a really important mission [and] it’s been hard to move the needle until now, for both external and internal reasons,” Eckleberry said in his briefing. “External reasons are really that it’s an industry that has been slow to change, and we finally found this decentralization method. Then internally, we really needed much, much better systems. We needed to become more competent frankly.”
Eckelberry outlined several ways the company has done exactly that, reaching significant milestones this year to strengthen its position in this exploding market. Those milestones include adding experienced personnel in key positions, creating a seamless interface and less outsourcing by the company’s Modular Water™ division, updating the company’s project-management system, building new international partnerships and partnership structure, implementing the most up-to-date technology, exploring the potential for oil and gas-water treatment, and pursuing major acquisitions.
“That’s a summary of what it’s been,” Eckleberry said. “I think you’re going to get some surprises in the first and second quarter. I can’t get into them obviously, but I am extremely satisfied with the team we’ve got.
“When I’m asked what I do, I tell people that I’m in water, and they always think I mean home systems,” Eckelberry continued. “But as the research indicates, the greatest opportunities are outside the home… You and I care about the water we drink in our home and also the waste that we create. But if we really want to change the planet, we need to look at what’s being done with the industrial, agricultural and commercial wastewater.”
