The Africa water purifier market size was valued at $410.8 million in 2019, and is estimated to reach $617.7 million by 2027 with a CAGR of 7.7% from 2021 to 2027. Water purifier is a device that eliminates biological contaminants, suspended solids, toxins, harmful gases & chemicals, bacteria, fungi, and other such impurities from contaminated water to make it potable. The penetration of water purifiers is relatively higher in developed regions, while developing countries still remain untapped. However, water purifiers are anticipated to emerge as a primary necessity in developing countries during the forecast period, owing to increase in water pollution.

Africa has been affected by various issues related to lack of access to safe drinking water, poor sanitation, and inadequate infrastructure. Moreover, number of children die every year due to their vulnerable habitat and exposure to environmental changes. More than hundreds of people in Harare, Zimbabwe suffer from typhoid every year, which, in turn, has spiked the need for installing water purifiers to combat water-borne diseases. Furthermore, increase in water-borne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, diarrhea, and hepatitis A boosts the sale of water purifiers. Thus, the government is continuously increasing the investment on rehabilitation and upgrading water and sanitation systems in the country to ensure complete safety of its residents. However, high price and significant popularity of water purifier brands such as Amway Corporation and Puritech lead to the advent of counterfeit brands, which are usually prevalent in developing economies where customers are highly price-sensitive. This factor hampers the sale of existing original water purifiers brands in these economies. Counterfeit brands are usually prevalent in developing economies due to the presence of price-conscious customers. In addition, counterfeiting hampers the brand image, owing to use of low-quality material and lower prices of products. Online distribution channel is one of the major platforms, where transaction of counterfeited products can be easily concealed. Thus, proliferation of the counterfeited industry is anticipated to hamper the growth of the Africa water purifiers market
