Global Water Purifier Market Driven by Rising Innovation

Water is a basic need and all animal and plant life depends on it. Although there exists a large quantity of water in water bodies around the world, much of it is often polluted or contains salts in high amounts and calls for efficient treatment. Independent researchers right from teenagers in Texas to big corporations such as Eureka Forbes are continuously striving to drive the efficiency of water purification.

This trend of innovation has been driving the global water purifier market for decades and is projected to continue to be a major factor shaping the market in the future as well. According to Transparency Market Research, the global water purifier market will expand at a healthy CAGR of 9.0% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2023. Let us explore the key innovations in the global water purifier market and their USPs:

Cheap US$20 Water Purifier from 18-Year-Old Perry Alagappan
In August 2015, American teenager Perry Alagappan recently came up with a water filter that removes heavy metals from water. This filter is built using graphene nanotubes and can be cleaned and reused. It is capable of removing 99% of heavy metals. This innovation won Alagappan the Stockholm Junior Water Prize.

Nanotechnology and Sand Water Purifier Invented by Tanzanian Chemical Engineer
An inventor from Tanzania, Askwar Hilonga, a chemical engineer, used nanotechnology and sand to purify water. This innovation won an award from the UK’s Royal Academy of Engineering. This water filter absorbs anything from fluoride to bacteria to pesticides. This filter removes around 97% of micro-organisms.

Highly Efficient Purifier from South Korean Company, Cuckoo
Cuckoo, a household name in South Korea for rice cooker products, has come up with a nano-positive filter, which is part of a 6-stage filtration system that removes 99.99% of virus and bacteria from water. This filter removes other harmful substances such as heavy metals from water as well, while preserving its mineral content.

SteriPEN for Backpackers as well as the U.S. Military
SteriPEN is a handheld device from a firm called Hydro Photon. This innovation uses UV light to remove harmful microorganisms. UV light is capable of destroying 99.9% of harmful microorganisms. This product is aimed at travelers and backpackers and is also used by the U.S. military. This device can be used to treat a liter of pond or stream water in 90 seconds.

DCMD System Processing Seawater Twice as Effective than Existing Technologies
An innovative process developed by Kamalesh Sirkar, a chemical engineering professor at the Jersey Institute of Technology, called direct-contact membrane distillation (DCMD) offers much promise. This system is extremely efficient and produces 80 liters of drinking water from 100 liters of seawater. This amount is twice of that produced by existing desalination technology.

These are some of the remarkable innovations currently seen in the global water purifier market. There are many other significant innovations that are shaping the market. Among the various technologies used to purify water, nanotechnology holds tremendous promise and will be deployed to make the most efficient water purifiers in the near future.
