Report Overview

The global point of entry water treatment systems market size was valued over USD 7.8 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to progress at over 4.1% CAGR from 2020 to 2027 on account of growing public health awareness, rising global population specifically in urban areas, along with increasing water pollution.

Government across the countries have introduced strict guidelines in order to restrict contamination in drinking water. Increasing awareness towards public health is projected to complement the adoption of point of entry (POE) water treatment systems. This, in turn, is estimated to drive the market during the forecast period.

U.S. point of entry water treatment systems Market

U.S. is one of the leading markets for point of entry water treatment systems on account of its advanced processing capabilities and highly developed technology industries. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been implementing numerous regulations aimed at ensuring the water treatment services in the manufacturing and municipal level.

The systems are designed to provide low cost, hygiene, and environmental protection while providing additional benefits. Key raw equipment used in point of entry water treatment systems manufacturing are membrane, filters, pumps, valves, tanks, automation systems, and many more.

The products are generally priced greater than the competing point of use systems, on account of use of advanced raw materials and their technological complexity. Increasing health awareness, particularly in the developed regions including Europe and North America, and some parts of Asia Pacific, are anticipated to propel the market for point of entry water treatment systems over the forecast period.

The market for point of entry water treatment systems, benefits from the number of regulations enacted by the regulatory authorities across Europe and North America. The consumers in the market for point of entry systems are highly sensitive regarding the installation cost of the systems. As a result, the companies are involved in offering discounts and price reductions in a bid to attract consumers.

Technology Insights

Based on technology, the point of entry water treatment systems market is segmented into reverse osmosis, disinfection, distillation, filtration, water softeners, and others. Reverse osmosis (RO) systems technology segment accounted for 17.1% of market share, in terms of revenue, in 2019, on account of its large-scale adoption coupled with the ease in installation and maintenance.

RO systems are anticipated to witness a slowdown throughout the forecast period, on account of new products and combination technologies introduced in the market for point of entry water treatment systems during the past few years, for instance, RO + UV systems. Increasing adoption of alternatives technologies offers numerous advantages including enhanced features as well as better efficiency.

Water softeners accounted for USD 1.3 billion in 2019 and is projected to be the third largest technology segment during the forecast period. This is attributed to rising demand for water softening process i.e. elimination of magnesium, calcium, and other material from the hard water is expected to witness substantial growth.

The filtration technology segment is expected to account for a significant market share owing to high adoption of filters in workplaces, residence, and institutions. Demand for disinfection and RO is expected to show substantial growth in coming years on account of their higher effectiveness in order to remove minerals and contaminants.

Application Insights

The market for point of entry water treatment systems categorizes products based on application into residential and non-residential segments. Affluent residences with large number of water dispensers including taps, showers, and pools have conventionally displayed wider penetration and adoption of point of entry water treatment systems.

In terms of revenue, the residential segment was valued at USD 2.2 billion in 2019, and is projected to witness a CAGR of 2.7% from 2020 to 2027. The residential application segment is expected to witness measured growth over the forecast period essentially on account of high installation and maintenance cost of the systems.

Global point of entry water treatment systems Market

The non-residential segment has a larger market share and is likely to witness a CAGR of 4.5% during 2020 to 2027. The segment includes healthcare service providers, transportation facilities, sports facilities, small scale commercial institutions, and industrial units.

The systems have a larger capacity, as it is installed at the inlet, and is therefore a preferred technology to cater to places where large volumes of water is required. These units are usually installed in large hotels, shopping malls, golf courses and sports arenas, performing art galleries, metro, bus, and train stations.

Regional Insights

The market for point of entry water treatment systems is anticipated to be driven by rising requirements for the minimization of global water footprint and optimum treated water quality yields in emerging economies including Asia Pacific, and Central and South Africa. As more countries introduce tighter regulations to control point of entry water treatment systems in their jurisdiction, the market is anticipated to witness stronger growth over the forecast period.

Rapid industrialization in the Asia Pacific countries coupled with the growth of sectors including oil and gas, mining, power generation, and paper and pulp in developing countries including India, China, and Singapore are some of the major growth propelling factors. In terms of revenue, the market for point of entry water treatment systems in Asia Pacific is anticipated to surpass USD 4.3 billion by 2027.

The key manufacturers are looking to expand their geographical reach and target countries like Indonesia, South Africa, and Vietnam among other developing nations, to boost their revenue. U.S. based market players like 3M and Honeywell are looking to expand their operations in countries with increasing demand for point of entry systems as part of their strategic growth plans.

Growing population, rising urbanization and growth in food and beverage and chemical-petrochemical industries are expected to positively influence the region's water treatment industry. Growing economic condition in South American countries such as Brazil, Argentina, and Venezuela are attracting many large companies to set their production unit in the region, which results in high demand for fresh and processed water.
