Market Players Gain Credibility by Introducing Waterless Urinals in Developing Countries of Asia Pacific

Increasing awareness about water-saving products has triggered the market growth for waterless urinals. Manufacturers in the water free/waterless urinals market are increasing their focus on the developing economies of Asia Pacific, as the alarming scarcity of water has created a surging demand for waterless urinals.

In a rapidly growing economy like India, the water crisis is a huge concern for environmental and health commissions. Hence, the Government of India is readily adopting waterless urinal systems, as these systems help save 57,000 to 1,70,000 liters of water, per urinal, per year. Since the Indian government is introducing various health and hygiene schemes, this region has high potential to emerge as a key source for incremental opportunities.

By installing waterless urinal systems in the developing economies of Asia Pacific, manufacturers in the water free/waterless urinals market can gain credibility by promoting the message of the judicious utilization of water. For instance, in May 2019, Diversey - a global cleaning and hygiene company, announced the launch of 'Flush-Me-Not' waterless urinal systems in India, which help in reducing the usage of water and also help control odor.

Awareness about Judicious Usage of Water Dissipates Resistance for Waterless Urinals

Although consumers have the resources to adopt waterless urinal systems, certain drawbacks of the framework are likely to slow down market growth. For instance, many individuals show resistance toward the usage of no-water urinals. Also, appointed cleaners find it difficult to adapt to the process of cleaning waterless urinals. Hence, manufacturers in the water free/waterless urinals market are increasing awareness about how no-water urinals help save huge amounts of water, and are developing specially designed tools to make the cleaning process easy and safe.

Even today, many governments do not approve of the installation of waterless urinals. Hence, manufacturers in the water free/waterless urinals market are increasing awareness about the judicious usage of water through waterless urinals. As a result of this growing awareness, governments across the world are beginning to set themselves as an example in the global market, by giving tax rebates and other credits, to encourage builders to install water free urinals.
