Smart water coolers are devices that dispense water at a cool temperature. These coolers are connected to a supply of water and have an outlet for cold water. Smart water coolers often have two outlets, wherein one dispenses hot water and the other cold. Smart water coolers also have additional in-built features such as water purification or filtration and additional dispenser for room temperature water. They majorly utilize electricity as a source of energy. Demand for water coolers or water dispensers is increasing owing to the lack of availability of clean and pure water and rising awareness about health and hygiene among consumers. Therefore, the global smart water cooler market is expanding at a considerable pace.
The global smart water cooler market is driven by various factors such as quick and easy availability of cold water at any time of the day and due to the rising temperature, which increase the demand for cold water. Other factors driving the market include awareness of timely consumption of water for a better immune system and desire for clear skin. Moreover, these systems keep the water distilled and clean due to the attached filtration and covered water storage. However, excessive consumption of electricity is a restraint for the smart water coolers market. Furthermore, the frequent replacement of components and its additional expense also hampers the market. Therefore, manufacturers of smart water coolers focus on developing products that consume less electricity, are easily of portable, and can purify water easily.
