China Water Purifier Market- Overview

Water purifiers are similar to water filters. However, purifiers have the ability to remove pathogens or microorganisms, unlike water filters. These appliances remove biological contaminants, undesirable chemicals, suspended solids, and gas particles from water. The water purifiers ensure clean and safe drinking water on demand for prevention from any water-borne diseases. Increasing population growth, land use, economic growth, and climate change are all raising pressures on water resources, degrading water quality.

China Water Purifier Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Deteriorating Water Quality Due to Rapid Industrialization

Water pollution has become the country's worst environmental issue. Around half of China's population lacks access to safe and clean drinking water because of water pollution. Chinese households receive dangerously contaminated water from industrial and human waste. In a report by the Chinese government, more than 70% of rivers, lakes, and waterways are polluted, and more than 78% of the water is unfit for human consumption. The demand for water purifiers is expected to increase in China during the forecast period as a result.

Launch of Wide Range of Water Purifier Products

With multiple players on the market, a variety of water purifying products are available at competitive prices. Product launches are part of the company's strategy to stay competitive in the market and increase product penetration, which is driving the market growth. For instance, Xiaomi, one of the largest Chinese consumer goods manufacturers, released the Mi Water Purifier H600G in October. It also launched a new product Mi Desktop Water Dispenser with water purification capabilities.

Restraints

Presence of Alternate Water Purification Techniques

As there are multiple players on the market, a variety of products are available at competitive prices. The companies launch new products as part of its strategy to stay competitive in the market and to increase product penetration, which makes the market grow. For instance, Xiaomi, one of the largest Chinese consumer goods manufacturers, released the Mi Water Purifier H600G in October. It also launched a new product Mi Desktop Water Dispenser with water purification capabilities.

Impact of COVID-19 on China Water Purifier Market

The Coronavirus was first detected in the city of Wuhan in China before spreading around the world. The rapid influx of COVID-19 patients and the increasing burden on the healthcare system prompted the Chinese government to impose a nationwide lockdown. This resulted in severe restrictions on the sale of water purifiers in China. The manufacturers suffered huge losses due to the shutdown of the manufacturing and sales channels, which led to a decline in the country’s demand and supply of water purifiers.

China Water Purifier Market - By Technology

Based on technologies, the China water purifier market is segmented into RO water purifiers, UV water purifiers, gravity-based water purifiers, and sediment filters. RO water purifiers account for the largest market share since they not only remove contaminants but also eliminate harmful pathogens. RO water purifiers are also low-maintenance, which makes them popular among middle- and low-income groups. As UV water purifiers can remove potentially dangerous chemicals, such as chlorine, they are also expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period.

China Water Purifier Market - By Sales-Channel

Based on the sales channels, the China water purifier market is segmented into distributor, direct, retail, wholesale, and online. The retail segment dominates China’s water purifier market due to the availability of a wide range of products. Since consumers can inspect different water purifiers at retail stores and brand showrooms before making a purchase, this segment dominates the industry. Despite this, online sales channels are likely to experience the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the growing popularity of online websites such as Alibaba, VIPshop, etc.

China Water Purifier Market - By End-User

Based on end-users, the China water purifier market is segmented into residential, commercial, and industrial. The industrial segment accounts for the largest market share because of the flourishing manufacturing sector in the industry. The industrial sector is one of the largest water pollutant sources in the country. The stringent regulations governing the treatment and purification of water prior to its discharge in water bodies are driving industrial demand for water purifiers. Because of the increasing prevalence of water-borne diseases and health awareness of safe drinking water, the residential segment is projected to see the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

The leading players in the China water purifier market are Midea, Haier, SUPOR, A.O. Smith, GREE, TRULIA, Royalstar, Angel, Ecowater, Sunrain, and other prominent players.

The China water purifier market is highly fragmented, with the presence of several global as well as regional market players. The regional players have deeper product penetration in the market. The companies significantly launch a wide range of products with advanced features and purification technology, boosting the market growth. The market is also characterized by the adoption of competitive strategies such as partnerships, mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, etc.
