Report Description

The India Water Softeners Equipment Market is anticipated to grow at a steady pace in the forecast period, 2024-2028 due to increasing demand for water softeners.


The process of softening water involves removing metal elements from hard water, such as calcium and magnesium. In order to obtain soft water, hard water must first have magnesium ions, calcium ions, and other forms of metallic cations removed using a water-softening machine. It is widely used to decrease water hardness, which is frequently driven by chemicals, and impurities from water using ion exchange resins, lime softeners, reverse osmosis membranes, nanofiltration, among others. The lifespan of appliances like water heaters, dishwashers, and washing machines is increased by using soft water since it requires less additional soaps and detergents for washing and cleaning. The three components of the water softening system are the brine tank, mineral tank, and control valve. These three cooperate to clean and restore the system, filter out minerals from hard water, and routinely check the water flow. A water softener greatly shortens the time it takes to remove soap scum and eliminates the need to replace water heaters and faucet heads that are rusted, flaky, and in need of replacement.

Additionally, out of the total allocations designated for Panchayati Raj Institutions, 60% have been set aside by the Fifteenth Finance Commission (FFC) in its report for 2021-26 for national priorities such drinking water delivery, rainwater harvesting, and sanitation (PRI). Two-thirds of the USD 4676.54 million Challenge Fund grant allotment for cities with a population of fifty million or more are designated for attaining service level criteria in the fields of solid waste management, sanitation, rainfall harvesting, and water recycling. The FFC report emphasises sustainable and efficient water use and offers three recommendations for reducing and rationalising water use in agriculture: (i) Direct benefit transfers (DBT) are used in place of free or heavily subsidised electricity supplies for agriculture.; (ii) encouraging the application of cutting-edge technology including drip, sprinkler, and sensor-based irrigation to maximize agricultural production per drop.; and (iii) conserving and rainwater harvesting to increase the availability of surface as well as groundwater. As a result, it is anticipated that the market for water softeners equipment is expected to grow in the upcoming years. Also, the union government has various schemes for water security namely, Jal Shakti Abhiyan, Atal Bhujal Yojana, Sahi Fasal Campaign among others under which clean & hardness-free water is expected to be delivered to the rural and urban populations in the forecast period.
