The Philippines has improved remarkably in its economic standing over the past years, and is now listed by the World Bank as the 10th fastest-growing economy in the world. Its ballooning population, and high rates of urbanization have led to a growing demand for potable water, as well as a greater need for the treatment and reclamation of wastewater.
Presently, however, only 80% of the population in the Philippines currently has access to potable water service, while only 7% has access to clean, conducive water for sanitation, and properly built sanitary sewers. Wastewater treatment in the country is low, at 10%, and the lack of wastewater treatment facilities has resulted in the improper disposal of untreated wastewater. Water pollution and pipe leakages are also major concerns in the country. Recent data shows that 70% of the country’s water supply is either polluted or look due to leaking pipes. Poor sewage management has led to groundwater contamination.
To meet the existing access gap and address projected future needs, the government is placing significant focus on the development and implementation of water technology in the country. It should be noted that the Philippines is highly dependent on imported water and wastewater treatment products. It sources its requirements from various Western and developed countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Australia and more developed Asian countries like China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
