Water softeners are becoming more popular across the regions where the mineral content in the water is in excess. According to studies, 85% of US homes have a problem with hard water that can damage appliances and lower efficiency of the water heater. Eventually, the government has been putting in efforts to increase the quality of water for drinking as well as domestic use by manufacturing new water treatment plants. For instance, Walkersville township has received a loan approval of USD 8.4 Million from the Maryland Department of the Environment to build a water treatment plant. Since the last few years, Walkersville regulators have been motivating to develop water treatment plant to treat sewage and contaminated water. The deployment of strict regulatory norms by developed countries in Europe to reduce the usage of contaminated water for food processing, drinking, residential, and commercial use has also encouraged manufacturers to carry out research and development activities. In order to comply with the regulatory norms, the industry contributors in chemical, pharmaceutical, and refinery sectors are also fueling the demand for water softeners for their newly constructed water treatment plants.

Based on type the global water softening systems market is classified into salt-based water softeners and salt-free water softeners. The salt-free water softeners segment is anticipated to grow over the forecast timeframe. Salt contributes to the salinity problem when discharged with other wastewater into the municipal sewage treatment plant. Generally, higher salinity in the wastewater increases the treatment costs and reduces the potential for reuse of treated wastewater for irrigation and industrial purposes. Highly saline-treated wastewater containing high levels of dissolved minerals (including the concentrations of calcium, magnesium, potassium, and anions of chloride and sulfate) that will add to the total dissolved solids (TDS) of a treatment plant’s discharged water. A high TDS will affect a sewage-treatment agency’s ability to comply with state and federal discharge standards. Generally, wastewater-treatment plants remove very little of the dissolved salts and minerals because they are primarily designed to remove grit and detritus, grease/oil, and organic solids (e.g., food and human waste) and not designed for chloride removal.

In terms of application, global water softening systems are divided into residential, commercial, and industrial. There has been an increasing deployment of water softening systems in the residential sector. The residential sector is expected to lead the global market for water softening systems throughout the forecast period owing to high installation frequency. It is estimated that service apartments increased by more than 20% in 2018.

Furthermore, there has been a demand for ultra-pure water from commercial and industrial sectors. With rising government-sponsored policies such as smart cities, demand for soft water is mounting at a global level. This demand is anticipated to escalate the global market growth for water softening systems. Among hard water geographical hubs, the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. are considered to be the core areas. Developing countries witnessing the growth of commercial and industrial sectors are also expected to fuel the sales of water softening systems.
