Consumer Water Treatment Systems: United States

This report forecasts to 2022 US consumer water treatment system demand in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total aftermarket component demand by value is also forecast to 2022. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: under-sink, countertop, faucet-mounted, flow-through and other point-of-use products such as shower and bath filtration systems, and point-of-entry. Total demand is also segmented by technology as follows: conventional filtration; membrane separation; and other technologies such as distillation, ultraviolet disinfection, and ozone treatment.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017; total aftermarket component demand and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2007, 2012, and 2017.

This report covers the market for consumer water treatment systems primarily designed to decrease the amount of contaminants in water in households. Systems purchased by consumers for personal use outside of the home (e.g., during leisure activities, pleasure, work, or school) are also considered, as are aftermarket components such as replacement filters and membranes. Refrigerator water filters and pitchers are excluded because these systems are originally sold to equipment manufacturers and only the replacement units are sold to consumers. Water softeners are also excluded from this report.

The technology under which a particular product is classified is determined by the highest level of treatment in that system. For instance, if a product includes both conventional filtration and reverse osmosis, it is labeled as a reverse osmosis system because that technology removes the most contaminants.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
