Water purifiers provide safe drinking water by removing dangerous bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants. Giardia and cryptosporidium removal decreases the risk of gastrointestinal disease by 33%. Additionally, it removes chlorine and its metabolites and lessens the risk of rectal and bladder cancer. Additionally, drinking clean water helps to maintain an optimal energy level, enhance skin health, reduce weight, and strengthen the body's general immune system. Water flavor and taste are more valuable after purification. As a result, using clean and safe water when cooking preserves the dish's flavor. Minerals are removed by household water filters, which might lower the water's overall quality. The purification at the water entry point extends the piping's life and greatly reduces maintenance costs.

Industries that manufacture and process things use a lot of water. A water crisis also has the greatest impact on these businesses. Thus, the necessity for water purifying systems in these industries is further fueled by the demand for water recycling. There is a rising demand for modern technology-enabled water treatment cleaners to tackle the problem of water pollution, which results from untreated water discharged by processing businesses. The expansion of food and beverage production facilities is anticipated to drive the water purifier market revenue throughout the anticipated time frame.

  • March 2024- Urban Company chooses to ignite the RO water-purifier market when RO itself is under fire. At the D2C pavilion of Startup Mahakumbh—a three-day entrepreneurial event arranged in New Delhi earlier in March—stood the booth of Urban Company. Opposite to hopes, Asia's biggest home-services company wasn't spectacular in its customary offerings. As a substitute, the focus was on its newest product: water purifiers with reverse osmosis (RO) technology. With that, Urban Company penetrated India's burgeoning USD 1 billion water-purifier market, which titans like Kent and Eureka Forbes had long ruled. However, instead of taking the regular route of "disruptive" prices, the almost-decade-old firm launched its Native M1 and M2 purifiers at Rs 14,500 (US$174) and Rs 18,500 (US$222).

The offered sale could value Qinyuan at nearly USD300 million, Bloomberg reported.
