Refrigerator water filters eliminate the pollutants and other particulates from the water that goes through the refrigerator’s water and ice dispenser. Most of the refrigerators use a slender, long filter cartridge in the base of the fridge, near the grille. The majority of refrigerator filters have at least an NSF 42 certification, which means, the removal of chlorine from water. It helps in improving water’s taste and smell. The efficiency of the refrigerator filter is observed by the amount of time the water is in contact with the carbon. The device works efficiently when handled well and replaced regularly.

However, various contaminations such as; lead and chromium-6 are two of the most common pollutants on that list. There still exist some places in the U.S with lead contamination. More than 30 million Americans fall sick on annual basis after drinking contaminated water, reveals the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP).

Activated Carbon is used as the filtration medium in most of the built-in refrigerator filters. Such filters cause pollutants to stick to the filtration medium, a process called adsorption. Since activated carbon has many nooks and crannies, it has a wide surface area for adsorption.

What Factors are boosting the Global Refrigerator Water Filter Market Demand?

Rising water contamination has generated a significant demand for refrigerator filters. It has been concluded that rapid urbanization has brought a negative impact on water quality, diminishing it. Therefore, the market has witnessed a significant rise in the demand for equipment within the domestic sector. Further, the increasing expenditure on personal healthcare is likely to play an important role in driving the market during the forecast period.

In addition, the growing demand for new installations and retrofitting with the rising need for developed features are predicted to augment the industry significantly. Moreover, the technological development and the launch of new products in the market are expected to offer significant opportunities for expansion to the key players during the forecast period.

The cost of the disposable water bottle can be an expensive affair for daily purposes, besides it has a certain environmental impact which is expected to spawn the need for adopting green methods and bolster the market. Moreover, the increasing popularity of modular kitchen and home improvement is expected to propel the sales of refrigerator water filters in the coming time.

What are the Factors Hampering Refrigerator Water Filter Market Expansion?

Inconsistent regulatory standards associated with water filter manufacturing are likely to pose a significant challenge to the market. Water filters are monitored by any health commission or department, which highlights the variable effectiveness of water filters among several manufacturers operating in the market. The testing is voluntary and there are no mandate rules and regulations regarding the installation and usage of water filters that create uncertainty in the industry.

The high prices of these refrigerators are likely to hamper the market growth in the forecast period. Further, the lack of awareness in various countries is likely to inhibit the market expansion in the coming time. Also, the outbreak of the pandemic hindered the manufacturing and supply chain, slowing down the market pace.
