Reef aquariums is a marine aquarium that displays live marine invertebrates, corals including hammer coral, candy cane coral, pulse coral and frogspawn coral. It also has various types of fish such as clownfish, tangs, and gobies, which play an important role in maintaining the tropical coral reef environment. A reef aquarium requires turbulent water movement, intense lighting, and more stable water chemistry.
Thus reef aquariums consist of various components such as lighting, stand, sump, refugium, canopy, Filtration, and water movement. However, small water volume and fluctuations in water quality require extra attention as compared to aquariums of larger water volume.
However, high cost of the reef aquariums is one of the major restraining factor for growth of the global market.
Asia Pacific held a dominant position in the global reef aquariums market in 2017, and it is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period, owing to increasing consumer preferences towards reef aquarium due its benefits. Filtration in reef aquarium help to remove phosphate, iron, and nitrate from water and provide natural food source. It helps to remove discoloration of the water and remove dissolved matter such as organic to help purify the water in the reef system.
Key players are introducing new product and technology in the market for business expansion and product development. For instance, in May 2018, EHEIM presented the EHEIM LED control, a new wireless electronic lighting control system for setting (via WLAN) lighting scenes and light intensity as in nature. The controller operated via tablets or PC and smartphone without an app. Furthermore, the EHEIM stream control is a new electronic control system which is used for flow pumps and circulation for simulating natural water flows in the aquariums.
