Poorly managed water pipelines across majority of the African region has led to a continuous fall in the quality of water which in turn increases the risk of water borne diseases. As a result, the demand for water purifiers in Africa is expected to register a healthy growth especially in countries such as South Africa and Nigeria during the 2017-23. Additionally, increasing expenditure of middle and upper class households would further drive the water purifier market in Africa. However, lack of awareness among the masses regarding water purifiers in general is likely to act as a hindrance for the growth of overall market.
According to 6Wresearch, Africa POU Water Purifier Market revenues are projected to grow at a CAGR of 15.7% during 2017-23. South Africa, Nigeria and Egypt are the major revenue generating countries and are witnessing increasing demand for POU water purifiers in the commercial and residential sectors. Further, bounded countries such as Ghana, Kenya and Zambia are anticipated to witness robust growth over the next six years.
According to Ravi Bhandari, Assistant Manager, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, "Water purifiers based on RO technology holds majority of the market share due to their widespread application in areas such as treatment of hard water and sea water desalination. Additionally, with the use of hybrid technologies such as RO + UV, UF + RO + UV and UF + Gravity in POU systems are expected to grow in future on account of more efficient results offered by them in water treatment".
According to Priya Sharma, Research Associate, Research and Consulting, "6Wresearch, Commercial sector is the leading contributor in terms of revenues in South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana and Uganda. The demand for water purifiers in the residential sector is anticipated to grow in Africa on account of rising household expenditure and increasing cases of children being affected by water borne diseases over the past few years."
"Lack of water resources due to insufficient rainfall in Sub Sahara tropical regions along with declining ground water level in North Africa are generating demand for increased reuse of water resources," Priya further added.
