Increasing population in the Middle East is primarily fueling the market growth of the residential water treatment equipment. According to the Coherent Market Insights analysis, the total population of the Middle East & Africa is approximately 346 million and is expected to grow at a rate of 2% per annum. Moreover, increasing mass migration to urban areas is further expected to raise demand for water purifiers, thereby propelling the market growth over the forecast timeframe.
The region has experienced a deterioration of water quality due to large scale industrialization is leading to limited availability of water. According to the Coherent Market Insights analysis, water availability in these counties is estimated to be merely 1,200 m3/person/year, which is substantially lower than the global average of 7,000 m3/person/year.
Growth in the construction industry in the region is expected to offer potential opportunities to the market of the Middle East residential water treatment equipment. According to the data by Construction Week's, Dubai’s GDP recorded a growth rate of 1.94% in 2018 to reach a value of $108.4bn (AED398.1bn), with the construction, infrastructure, and real estate sectors all playing a significant role. Thus, growth in the construction industry is expected to augment the market growth of the Middle East residential water treatment equipment.
Growing cases of water-borne disease such as diarrhea, liver damage, a digestive disorder, etc. are expected to open up new avenues to the market of Middle East residential water treatment equipment. Moreover, increasing domestic production of the water purifier in the especially UAE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is also projected to augment the market growth of the Middle East residential water treatment equipment over the forecast period.

Key Takeaways of the Graph:
The high price of water purification equipment especially that of the RO and UV process is expected to hamper the market growth of Middle East residential water treatment equipment.
Limited use of the product due to the scarcity of water in the region is projected to restrict market growth. Moreover, the lack of product availability of the product as the market is highly untapped is expected to hamper the market growth of the residential water treatment equipment.
A water treatment device is an electro-mechanical device to purify water of certain contaminants that are harmful to health. In simple terms, a water treatment device is a machine that transforms impure water into potable water by filtering it through a complex series of physical and chemical processes.
Devices such as under-counter, countertop, gravity feed, faucet/spigot filters, gravity flow, pitcher/fountain, and countertop filters are all considered residential devices.
Increasing water pollution and growing population is a prime factor driving growth of the Middle East residential water treatment device market. Moreover, increasing number of water treatment plant in the region is another major factor augmenting growth of the market. For instance, in July 2019, The Municipality of Dubai, the UAE, has launched a new plant to treat industrial wastewater, which will then be reused for irrigation. The new plant is situated at the Jebel Ali Hazardous Waste Treatment Complex and can produce 450,000l of irrigation water in 24 hours.
On the other hand, the high cost of the device is expected to hinder growth of the market.
