South Africa water purifiers market was valued $ 390 million in 2019 and is forecast to reach $ 540 million by 2025 on account of deteriorating water quality, rapid industrialization and increasing awareness about waterborne diseases. Growing concerns related to water scarcity due to less or no rainfall and drought in several parts of the country is further stressing on the need of proper water infrastructure in the country. Moreover, increasing population and lack of access to safe drinking water is fueling the demand for water purifier in the country.

 Increasing investments by the government and advancements in the water purification technology are expected to bring down the prices of water purifiers in the country in the coming years. In terms of installation mode, point of entry (POE) segment held around two-thirds of the market share in 2019 as this installation mode allows efficient processing of a large amount of water.

 Based on regional analysis, South Africa water purifier market can be segmented into Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng and others. Western Cape region led the market in 2019 due to presence of cities like Cape Town which observed day zero in 2019 as the city ran out of water.
