U.S. point of use water treatment systems market size, by technology, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The COVID-19 outbreak had a substantial operational and economic impact on the global point-of-use water treatment sector. Since the water treatment business is classified as an essential service, the overall negative impact on the industry was moderate in comparison to other manufacturing industries. Supply chain disruptions and shortage of technicians occurred as a result of the unexpected lockdown and restrictions on the flow of commodities to minimize the spread of the virus.

According to the Water and Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association (WWEMA), supply chain challenges, inflation, and steel costs, particularly stainless steel prices, have risen dramatically, negatively impacting the market growth. This had a significant influence on water and wastewater equipment suppliers and contractors, affecting both raw material and acquired component pricing. The labor market was getting affected and many industries were witnessing staffing shortages. Recruiting, hiring, keeping, and paying new staff had become more expensive and complicated.
