The global point-of-use water treatment systems is expected to witness significant growth in the future due to the increasing demand for clean drinking water, increasing water contamination, growing human population, growing awareness about the benefits of water treatment, and technological innovations in the water treatment industry. Counter-top units are also known as on-counter filters. These filters sit on the counter and are directly connected to the faucet. They consist of a diverter, allowing users to switch between unfiltered and filtered water. Counter-top units operate on reverse osmosis as well as activated carbon technologies. These filters reduce contaminants, such as bacteria, dirt, chlorine, particulates, rust, lead, mercury, sediment, copper, benzene, cadmium, and cysts.
The residential application mainly encompasses the use of point-of-use water treatment systems to produce potable water for domestic consumption. The residential water treatment application is expected to witness high growth due to the increasing need for treated drinking water, removal of unpleasant taste, odor, and discoloration suspended solids, biodegradable organics, and pathogenic bacteria.
Reverse osmosis is a process of producing pure water through a semipermeable membrane, wherein the water is pumped at high pressure through this membrane, which separates inorganic minerals (such as radium, sulfate, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, nitrate, fluoride, and phosphorous), organic compounds (including pesticides), and other impurities from water. Usually, reverse osmosis systems are combined with a mechanical and activated carbon filter. The sand and large particles are removed by the mechanical filter first, and then after passing through the RO unit, the water is moved through the activated carbon filter for the removal of organic compounds.
