Point of Entry Water Treatment Systems Market size is poised to record significant gains through 2027 driven by the rising incidence of waterborne infections and need for cleaner drinking water across diverse economies. Besides, rising scale of water contamination, technological advancements in water filtration processes, and expanding urbanization and industrialization are further expected to boost the market progression.
Point of entry water treatment systems are deployed at main water lines in a commercial or residential establishment. These devices are observing heightened adoption due to the rising demand for clean water among people.
Various governments and governmental organizations are taking up significant efforts to offer clean and treated water to their residents for diverse purposes. For instance, EPA enforces federal safe drinking water and clean water laws, participates in pollution prevention efforts, and offers support for municipal wastewater treatment plants.
However, factors like high cost of equipment installation, operations, and maintenance would limit the market growth in the coming years. Furthermore, lack of improved infrastructure is expected to challenge the point of entry water treatment systems market progression over 2021-2027.
Based on the technology, reverse osmosis segment would gain substantial growth in the overall market. Reverse osmosis is a membrane separation water purification procedure that allows the feed water to flow along the membrane surface under certain pressure. Most membranes in the process remove nearly 90% to 99% of the impurities dissolved in the water. Reverse osmosis systems can remove microorganisms, salts, and many other high molecular weight organics. Besides, the system capacity depends on the water temperature, operating pressure, total dissolved solids in feed water, and the overall recovery of the system.
The application of point of entry water treatment systems is highly felt across the residential sectors. Consumers have been preferring water treatment systems to augment the overall quality of water that is being received from municipal water treatment plants. Water filters are usually the preferred devices among various households as they help in eradicating the contaminants and dissolved particles from the water. Meanwhile, the demand for RO systems is also expanding prolifically across the sector, further supporting the segmental growth.
North America is touted to emerge as a profitable avenue for the point of entry water treatment systems market in the ensuing years. This can be credited to the rising emergence of new industries in the continent. In addition, growing urbanization is leading to the growth in residential buildings and space which is enunciating the need for deployment of effective water filtration and water treatment devices including RO and filtration systems.
Honeywell International Inc, 3M Company, The Dow Chemical Company (Dow Inc.), Calgon Carbon Corporation (Kuraray, Kuraray Holdings U.S.A., Inc.), Danaher Corporation, Watts Water Technologies, Inc, and Pentair plc., amongst others are some of the eminent firms operating in the global point of entry water treatment systems market. These players have been adopting several strategies including mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, new product developments and more to sustain a competitive position in the overall market.
The outbreak of coronavirus pandemic has had a nominal impact on the global market. The growth in the industry was propelled by the rising need to consume virus and contamination free water amidst the lethal infection scare. The market growth was further challenged by the disruptions in the supply chain and subsequent lockdown norms by various countries that led to a temporary halt in operations and shutdown of production units.
