ABSTRACT

This study developed the water industry index to be used for the overseas expansion of the water resource industry in Korea and examined its applicability. We investigated the domestic and foreign water resources indicators that have been previously developed, examined the detailed items and purposes of each indicator, and then selected the detailed indicators for three types of water industry: watershed development industry, water supply and sewerage industry and alternative water resource industry. We created a water industry index for each country using the detailed indicator items. When comparing the calculated water industry indexes across the continent, the indexes were generally estimated high in Africa and Asia while those in Europe were low for all industrial types. As a result of this study, we provided information that can help Korean water resources company establish their overseas strategy and determine priorities based on an objective and quantitative evaluation of water industry in a target country.
