US demand for consumer water purification and air cleaning systems will rise 5.2 percent per year through 2014. Conventional filters will remain the dominant water purification system, while higher-value reverse osmosis and distillation systems will grow the fastest. Electrostatic filters will lead gains in the air cleaning segment.
This study analyzes the $1.3 billion US consumer water purification and air cleaning system industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by technology (e.g., conventional filtration, reverse osmosis, distillation, electrostatic, ionization), product (e.g., point-of-entry water purification, point-of-use water purification, whole-house air cleaners, portable air cleaners) and US regional market.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 industry players, including Brita, PUR Water Purification Products, and General Electric.
