Rapid Changes in the Air, Water, Energy (AWE) Market

EBITDA is maximized by anticipating growth opportunities ahead of the competition. Here are some game changers in air, water, and energy.

  1. Contract manufacturing of pharmaceuticals is creating a large group of AWE purchasers in biopharmaceuticals.
  2. Orders for coal fired boilers in Asia continue to exceed expectations and have created a market far bigger than the combination of the U.S and Europe at peak capacity.
  3. Water reuse is becoming increasingly more sustainable. We have a metric comparing harm from CO2 vs water use in a drought area vs a water surplus area to guide decisions on dry cooling and water reuse.
  4. Drax is moving into the U.S.  with multiple sites for Bioenergy with carbon capture and sequestration
  5. LNG supply will meet expanding needs and will include small projects such as capturing and liquefying flared gas for truck transport.
  6. Horizontal drilling along with hydraulic fracturing have allowed the U.S. to produce more energy than any country in history. The repair parts market is now stronger than that for new construction.
  7. New food processes from homogenization to freeze drying continue to open up new opportunities.
  8. Investors are buying distributors and building cleanrooms where they assemble valve and pump skids saving customers labor plus reducing downtime.
  9. Consolidation continues.  Suppliers of compressors have been busy with Ingersoll Rand and Atlas Copco pursuing component solutions while Chart with Howden is pursuing application solutions.

Mcilvaine is following all the AWE trends and can help you pursue those which will be most profitable.

We can set up a discussion with you where Bob Mcilvaine can discuss these trends and how you can take advantage of them.
