Bottled Water Testing Equipment Market – Snapshot
The increasing consumption of water bottles is one of the primary factors that is driving the demand for advanced bottled water testing equipment. In order to fulfill this demand, technological advancements are constantly being undertaken for substituting older methods with more effective ones. The evolving processes of water bottle testing are expected to reduce the cost of testing and increase the effectiveness as well.
The growing awareness about the effects of contaminated water on health is expected to poise the growth of the global bottled water testing equipment market. Moreover, governments are imposing strict rules for the processes and equipment used in the bottled water testing, which is likely to bolster the global market. Currently, many water bottle producers use UV disinfection to test the water quality. This process also helps to protect the shelf life and the flavor of water. As outbreaks of water-borne pathogens may occur in bottled water, treatments and testing processes such as UV disinfection play significant roles in production of water bottles.
Water testing instruments that do not produce toxic matters, by-products, and use no hazardous chemicals for processing are considered as good equipment. Manufacturers are also developing bottled water testing equipment that will leave no residue, have no detrimental effect on the product stability, and no effect on aroma, color, flavor, or pH value.
The European Union (EU) commission regulations and the food and drug regulations concerning water testing have stimulated water testing activities, thus leading to progress of the global bottled water testing equipment market. Furthermore, the research and development activities that are being carrying out for the new physical, microbial, and chemical testing of water for pharmaceutical residues, pesticide pollutants, and toxic by-products are expected to give the much needed uplift to the market.
Bottled Water Testing Equipment Market – Overview
The bottled water testing is the need of an hour due to the increased bottled water consumption worldwide. The bottled water testing includes utilization of multi-barrier approach. Measures in a multi-barrier approach include the technology such as reverse osmosis, distillation, micro-filtration, carbon filtration, ozonation and ultraviolet (UV) light. The bottled water testing equipment is primarily used to detect the organisms such as E. coli, Vibrio cholera, and other pathogens. The testing of bottled water is done for the coliforms, heterotrophic plate count, yeast, mold and Pseudomonas sp. as well as pH, total dissolved solids, conductivity, turbidity and ozone residual. The awareness about the water-borne diseases, boost the demand for the water testing and propel the growth of the bottled water testing equipment.
Bottled Water Testing Equipment Market – Drivers and Restraints
The global bottled water testing equipment market is projected to register a significant CAGR over a forecast period. The demand for the bottled water testing equipment is rising rapidly due to the increasing awareness about the water-borne diseases among the people.
