Market Size & Trends

The global point of entry water treatment systems market size was estimated at USD 9.62 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% from 2024 to 2030. Increasing demand for water treatment systems due to the growing pollution and population in urban areas is expected to have a positive impact on market growth. In the U.S., increasing levels of contamination have resulted in the rising adoption of water treatment systems, thereby boosting market growth. The EPA is carrying out administrative orders to ensure safe drinking water through public water systems in the U.S. Moreover, the announcement of the Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act of 2021 in May 2021 by the U.S. government with funding of USD 35 billion has created opportunities for the market.

U.S. Point Of Entry Water Treatment Systems Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The U.S. government is undertaking several initiatives to improve its public infrastructure. For instance, in November 2023, the U.S. Department of Treasury announced a plan to invest USD 7.8 billion in airport infrastructure development projects, USD 34.1 billion in public transportation infrastructure, and USD 22.8 billion for water infrastructure in the country. Thus, growing number of commercial projects in the country is expected to drive market demand in North America. Population growth, rapid urbanization, technological advancements, and infrastructure expansion have all increased global demand for fresh and processed water. The human population has doubled in the last 50 years resulting in high consumption of water.

Moreover, depleting water resources and rising water pollution levels are also contributing to product demand, which is expected to fuel industry growth. According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Water Development Report 2022, approximately 829,000 people, including nearly 300,000 children under the age of five years, die each year across the world from diarrhea caused by contaminated drinking water, poor sanitation, and poor hand hygiene. Rising public awareness about the need for treated drinking water has aided in the widespread adoption of point of entry water treatment systems.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

Market growth stage is medium, and the market growth pace is accelerating. The market is characterized by a high degree of competition owing to various technologies used in the product and large number of manufacturers operating at global level.

The market is also characterized by a high degree of product innovation, which results in the optimization of water treatment process. The use of sustainable technology and energy-efficient product demand is increasing across different industries. A similar trend can be observed in this market.

Point Of Entry Water Treatment Systems Market Concentration & Characteristics

The industry is also significantly influenced by the growing regulatory compliance. These systems are installed for achieving maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) compliance under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) in the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations.

End-user concentration is a significant factor in this industry owing to a high number of commercial and industrial facilities that require such systems.

Technology Insights

The reverse osmosis (RO) systems technology segment held a revenue share of 16.2% in 2023. An RO system is positioned at the entry point of the pipe that supplies water. The pore size of an RO filter is around 0.0001 microns, making it highly efficient in removing protozoa, bacteria, and viruses. This technology also aids in eliminating various aqueous salts and metal ions, including lead, chromium, copper, chloride, and sodium. The rising importance of water quality is likely to have a positive impact on segment growth. Owing to industrialization and urbanization, freshwater bodies are becoming polluted and are drying up.

The increasing presence of industrial pollutants in water supply is expected to fuel the demand for more water treatment systems and thus, drive market growth. The distillation systems segment is projected to witness lucrative growth rate from 2024 to 2030. Distilled water is used for various purposes, such as drinking, cooking, cleaning, bathing, laundry, etc. For commercial applications, such as dental offices and laboratories, the point of entry water distillation units are used to ensure the safety of patients as well as equipment. Also, for hospitals, restaurants, schools, etc., these systems offer high-quality distilled and safe water for various applications.

Application Insights

The industrial segment dominated the market in 2023. The water used in various breweries, bottling plants, beverage manufacturing, and food processing facilities must be of high quality; hence, these industries use point of entry water treatment systems. Moreover, the penetration of these systems is increasing in the residential sector as well. The increasing preference for soft, odorless, and filtered water for purposes, such as showering, cleaning, bathing, and washing, is anticipated to contribute to segment growth.
