Water Softener Market: Introduction: Water softener is primary filtration units used for conversion of hard water to soft water. The water softeners eliminate calcium and magnesium present in the water by chemical and physical methods in a controlled way to reduce the ill effects of the hard water over the end-use application. The hard water is converted into soft water by different processes such as ion exchange, distillation, and reverse osmosis. The ion exchange method is the most effective way of softening hard water but requires higher resources to per unit soft water output over other techniques. The water softener market is mainly based on the regions of hard water presence. The global water softener market is expected to be dominated by North America resulted in large population present in the hard water affected region. The household segment is expected to see a high demand over the forecast period owing to the penetration of the same into the developing regions.
Water Softener Market: Segmentation: The water softener market is segmented on the basis of type, process, and end-use.
On the basis of type, the water softener market is segmented into electric and manual. The electric segment is expected to dominate the global water softener market owing to its higher efficiency and added functionalities. The manual segment is expected to see substantial demand in the low-income regions owing to its lower price than electric water softener segment.
