Overview of the portable water purification systems market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global portable water purification systems market to grow at a CAGR of around 10% by 2020.  The rise in health concerns has increased the demand for the drinking water treatment equipment. The untreated water has microbial contaminants like bacteria which is detrimental to human health and leads to different forms of ailments. Several governments across the globe are adopting environment-friendly techniques and methods such as reverse osmosis, advanced membrane systems, disinfection equipment, specialty chemicals, and filtration systems used in commercial water treatment. Growing health hazards have accelerated the demand for safe drinking water, which will increase the demand for the portable water purification systems in the coming years.

Water purification is gaining prominence due to the shrinking water resources across the world and increasing wastewater disposal costs. Owing to the growing water crisis and the importance of treating the water for reuse, the demand for wastewater treatment technologies is on the rise. The depletion of fresh water resources has led to the use of more chemicals for water treatment to make it safe to drink, thereby necessitating the use of water purification systems. Water purification system can remove the disease-causing contaminants from the water and improve the quality of water.
