Water Purifier Market Research, 2031

The global water purifier market size was valued at $29,998.15 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $92,082.60 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 10.1% from 2022 to 2031. 

The water purifier is defined as a device used to decontaminate water from harmful substances, chemicals, pathogens, microorganisms, and other dissolved solids and make it portable.             

Increase in disposable income in emerging nations boosts water purifier market growth. Increase in income level surges the purchasing power of customers, which in turn results in improved standard of living. In addition, the demand for water purification systems in developing countries is fueled by increase in availability of safe water by municipalities and upsurge in the number of water recycling treatments. Some of the emerging nations, such as Brazil and China, witnessed an increase in disposable income, owing to skill development of the population and rise in employment in service-centered industries. This increased the demand for water purification systems in these fields and contributed toward the development of the water purifier. Increase in concerns toward health and well-being among the global population has led to the adoption for hygiene practices. This serves as a key factor that substantially contributes toward the growth of the global market. Moreover, widespread availability of healthcare services, change in economic & social systems, and improved diagnostics have improved the health of consumers across various regions. Therefore, increase in health consciousness and upsurge in incidence of waterborne diseases fuel the demand for water purification systems.

According to the UN and the WHO, a child and approximately $3.5 million people die in every 21 seconds annually, in developing countries due to waterborne diseases caused by drinking contaminated water. The situation in developing economies is worse due to scarcity of fresh water, rise in pollution, and rapid surge in population. Thus, growth in incidence of waterborne diseases significantly fuels the demand for water purifiers. Diminishing quality of water is a serious health hazard. It poses huge risks to the health, causing various water-borne diseases. The declining water quality is a result of dumping untreated sewage, chemicals, pesticides, nutrients, and garbage from industries, agriculture, and municipal corporations into waterbodies. Most of the water supplied by municipal authorities in urban areas is unsafe to drink and requires further decontamination from heavy metals, virus, cysts, bacteria, and other toxins. Industrialization is expected to rise, leading to increased water pollution in the coming years, thus creating an increase in demand for water purifiers.

The renowned market players focus on launching well-equipped products with advanced water purification technologies. These players have heavily invested in R&D activities to introduce water purifiers equipped with reverse osmosis, ozone, ultra-violet, ultra-filtration, activated carbon, and candle filtration technologies. Moreover, purifiers installed with Wi-Fi technology and filter pitchers are launched in the market. The market players are expected to launch more innovative products and solutions to cater to the rise in demand for potable water.

The market is segmented on the basis of technology, distribution channel, portability, and end user. Depending on technology, it is classified into UV, RO, and gravity based. By distribution channel, it is divided into retail sales, direct sales, and online. By portability, it is bifurcated into portable and non-portable. By end user, the market comprises of commercial and residential. Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Russia, Rest of Europe, and Western Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Brazil, Middle East, and rest of LAMEA).

On the basis of technology, the market is classified into UV, RO, and gravity based. In 2020, the RO water purifier segment occupied the largest water purifier market share of 66.3%, followed by the UV segment with 20.4%, and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 9.5% during water purifier market forecast period. RO water purification systems are widely adopted across the globe, due to their performance efficiency, low electricity consumption, and regular technological innovation. However, the UV & gravity-based water purifier segments are expected to witness decline in water purifier industry growth during the forecast period, as UV water purifiers are less efficient and cost-effective as compared to RO water purifiers, which increases RO water purifiers’ adoption among low-income groups.

Analyst Review

The global water purifier market is anticipated to witness notable growth in the recent years. This is attributed to the fact that sales have surged in the past few years in Asia-Pacific, making it the largest revenue generator. Moreover, presence of huge population base and scarcity of clean drinking water drive the market in developing countries, such as India and China. The penetration rate of relatively lower priced products, such as gravity-based water purifiers is higher in developing countries of Asia-Pacific and LAMEA. These markets also witness increase in adoption of high-end products and increase in the number of international players, such as Panasonic, Amway, and others. Thus, the demand for portable water purifiers is expected to increase at a considerable rate in developed countries of Europe and North America, as these markets are nearing maturity.
