Indonesia Water Purifiers Market to Grow at Over 5.7% through 2020

 Degradation of water resources due to pollution coupled with contamination of drinking water to drive the demand for water purifiers in Indonesia

According to recently published TechSci Research report, “Indonesia Water Purifiers Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2020”,water purifiers market in Indonesia is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 5.7% during 2015-20. The market is anticipated to grow on account of degradation of water resources in the country, coupled with rising contamination of drinking water supplied to the households in the country. About 30% of the water supplied by water companies in Indonesia is contaminated with E. coli, fecal coliforms and other pathogens.Moreover, river water in Indonesia is highly contaminated and is not fit for drinking unless boiled. Consequently, the demand for water purifiers has been witnessing a continuous growth in the country.

With increase in population and industrial development, especially in the western region of the country, concerns regarding water safety are also increasing. Majority of Indonesia’s population does not have access to piped water and is dependent on river water. Moreover, most of the industrial and domestic waste in the country is directly discharged into the rivers. Apart from domestic and industrial waste, small scale mining activities near the rivers are also resulting in increasing level of mercury in river water. Consequently, at least 6 major rivers in west Java alone, do not meet drinking water requirements.

“Domestic waste is among the major factors degrading the quality of water in Indonesia.Also, government efforts for upgrading and expanding water supply network over the course of last decade have been inadequate. As a result, majority of the population in Indonesia still does not have access to safe drinking water. People in the country mostly rely on either bottled water or boiled river water for domestic use, both of which prove costly when compared to one time investment in water purifiers. With expanding middle class and increasing health concerns, Indonesia is expected to offer a huge opportunity for water purifier suppliers through 2020.”, said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research-based global management consulting firm.
