Water treatment has changed considerably over the last few decades, and new advances and developments continue to shape the market. With the increasing population and industrial proliferation, the need for clean water is rising. Providing clean water, however, has become increasingly difficult. While the water softener industry is a mature market in Europe and North America, it also needs to adapt and expand. The market is likely to increase in importance as the availability of soft, clean water decreases.

Knowledge of potential solutions for water pollution has become very important, especially when considering the rapidly expanding populations in Africa, South America and Asia, as well as the global increase in pollution. Because of the growing health concerns and disadvantages of hard water, water treatment equipment manufacturers and suppliers are increasingly interested in the water softener market.

Growth is expected to be strongest in the developing world, with countries such as China and India undergoing growth greater than the global average. Increased demand will also be seen in developed countries due to stringent government regulations and the consequent increase in the usage of water softeners. In the water softener market, gains are also likely to be due to the continuous introduction of more sophisticated softening technologies, such as a Wi-Fi equipped water softeners that can be operated from anywhere with a mobile phone.

The market for water softeners is segmented based on type (salt-based, salt-free, magnetic and others), end-use sectors (residential, commercial and industrial), and geographic regions (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world). This report covers market drivers, restraints, opportunities and challenges that determine the scope of the market and its trends. There has been a major shift in the global water softener market, which is moving from developed economies (e.g., Europe and the U.S.) to developing economies (e.g., China and India). Continually increasing demand from both developed and developing countries is contributing to the overall expansion of the worldwide water softener market. Industrial growth in the developing economies is a major driver for expansion of the market during the forecast period.

North America is the largest regional market for water softeners and has high growth potential. Growth in the North American region is mainly driven by growing end-use sectors such as residential, commercial and industrial. Additional drivers are the high demand from the rapidly growing power generation, manufacturing, and oil and gas industries.

Salt-based water softeners have wide use in all fields of application. However, the market for salt-based water softeners is being taken over by salt-free water softeners, mainly due to their environmentally friendly properties and lower maintenance costs. Magnetic water softeners and other water softening technologies such as reverse osmosis (RO) are experiencing reasonably good growth, as they cause less pollution, require less maintenance and are less costly.
