Water Contamination and High Disposable Incomes Create Significant Growth Potential in the Indian Residential Water Treatment Systems Market – Finds Frost & Sullivan

MUMBAI, India, January 20 /PRNewswire/ — The growing residential water
treatment systems market in India, estimated to have a potential of nearly
INR 15 billion, has new participants vying with well-established participants
for a slice of this lucrative market. Contaminated water is still a menace in
India, with scant regard for environmental standards and the inability of
cash-crunched municipalities to effectively treat the piped potable water
supplied to consumers. To add to consumers’ water woes, naturally occurring
salts and metals in the water are compelling them to purchase and use
point-of-use water treatment systems.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.environmental.frost.com),
Strategic Analysis of the Indian Residential Water Treatment Systems Market,
finds that the market earned revenues of INR 16486.00 million in 2007 and
estimates this to reach INR 41202.50 million in 2012.

“Indians have become more health and hygiene conscious with a growing
awareness that mere boiling of water is not enough to remove dissolved salts
and metals detrimental to their health,” says Frost & Sullivan Industry
Analyst Sasidhar Chidanamarri. “UV-based systems which dominated the market
earlier are now being overtaken by reverse osmosis (RO)-based systems, which
are growing at a significant pace.”

The point-of-use counter tops system goes a step ahead with its purifying
abilities, by removing microbes and dissolved contaminants, compared to the
conventional ceramic/candle/drip filters. As a result, this market is
attracting new participants. The market for traditional candle filters was
already hit by the ultraviolet-based systems and now, the new RO-based system
is expected to snuff out whatever remains of the candle filter market.

On the other hand, there is a dearth of timely and efficient after-sales
support in both the organized and unorganized segments. Several small and
regional participants, especially, lack quality and reliability, though their
products are inexpensive. There should be greater focus on after-sales
service and personnel training to efficiently handle consumer complaints.
