Technology Insights

Reverse osmosis systems technology dominated the market and accounted for a share of 32.1% in 2023. The driving factors for the adoption of reverse osmosis point of use water treatment systems include their effectiveness in removing contaminants, energy efficiency, compact design, and versatility in treating various water sources. Additionally, the growing awareness of waterborne diseases and the need for safe drinking water contribute to the increasing popularity of reverse osmosis point of use systems.

The technology's ability to address specific contaminants like bacteria, viruses, and dissolved solids further enhances its appeal, making it a preferred choice for households and communities aiming to ensure access to clean and potable water. A point of use reverse osmosis system is a type of water filtration device linked to a specific fixture, like beneath the kitchen sink. RO (reverse osmosis) systems are capable of potentially eliminating various water contaminants, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), lead, arsenic, PFAS, etc.

Furthermore, product innovations and new added features in reverse osmosis systems are facilitating the demand for new installations for effective water treatment at the point of use. For instance, in December 2023 Samyang Corporation introduced reverse osmosis membrane to build ultrapure water treatment systems. The company has released a new product TRILITE RO, within the industrial water treatment brand TRILITE. The ultrapure water produced by this system can be used for displays, semiconductors, and other electronic products.

Device Insights

Tabletop pitchers accounted for the largest market revenue share in 2023. This is attributable to the growing adoption of tabletop pitchers owing to their attractive features and characteristics. Tabletop pitchers are compact household water purification devices that sit on tables, providing a convenient and portable solution for treating water at the point of consumption. The ease of use and portability of tabletop pitchers make them a popular choice.

Under-the-sink filters is expected to register the second-fastest CAGR during the forecast period. These systems are designed to purify water at the point of use, providing a dedicated solution for enhancing the quality of drinking and cooking water within a specific faucet. Under-the-sink filters are known for their ability to provide comprehensive filtration, targeting a wide range of contaminants such as sediments, chlorine, heavy metals, and various impurities.This level of filtration ensures that users have access to clean and safe drinking water directly from their kitchen faucet. One driving factor is the utilization of space beneath the sink. As these filtration systems are installed discreetly, they don't occupy valuable counter space, which makes them a suitable choice for those who prioritize a clutter-free kitchen.

Application Insights

The industrial segment dominated the market in 2023. The market demand for point of use water treatment systems in the residential segment is anticipated to be driven by concerns about new contaminants along with the rising demand for high-quality drinking water. Consumers are becoming more aware of contaminants like polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), poor water quality, and waterborne illnesses, such as cholera, typhoid, acute diarrhea, viral hepatitis, boil water advisories, and other issues. Additionally, it is projected that the market demand will grow swiftly because of the demand for drinking water that has been treated to withdraw risky germs, biodegradable organics, discoloration, bad taste, and odor.

Global Point of Use Water Treatment Systems Market share and size, 2023
