Executive Summary

Hyflux, with its cutting edge technologies and strong operational capabilities, is a leading provider of integrated water treatment systems with operations in China, Middle East, South East Asia and recently, India. With a huge growing population, increased economic growth and market liberalization, India is experiencing a boom in business activities. As a country grows, so does its need for commodities. Industrial and potable water is a scarce resource and there is an exponential increase for water. Many water treatment companies, including Hyflux, have identified India's demand for water. Consequently, many water technology companies have entered into the Indian market.
