A series of new concepts on environmental protection such as PPP, third-party management, sponge city, and black and odorous water treatment spawned a huge promising market, attracting numerous capitals. For instance, some Hunan enterprises have entered into the market after finishing its transformation and companies from other places also joined in Hunan’s market via business expansion, mergers and acquisitions, thus making the market competition pattern increasingly distinctive and fierce.
