Outdoor Drinking Fountain Market Dynamics

Increase in Demand for Drinking Water Is Driving Demand for Outdoor Drinking Fountains

Continuous growth in demand for drinking water across the globe is the key factor driving the outdoor drinking fountain market. Moreover, increase in population, shortage of water supply, and a rise in dependency on water dispensers in outdoor places are influencing the installation of outdoor drinking fountains.

Opportunity to Target Untapped Markets

Outdoor drinking fountains are likely to gain business opportunity in high-traffic areas in the course of replacement of old models with new outdoor drinking fountains that have filters, bottle fillers, and chillers. In order to earn business contract for installation of outdoor drinking fountain and improve the quality of water, manufacturers must be involved in post-sales services by providing attractive offers to users. In addition to this, manufacturers should focus on collaboration with government agencies in-order to bag the contract for installation of outdoor drinking fountains.

End-users shifting to commercial water acting as a restraint to the market

End-users switching from publicly accessible water to commercial filter or bottled water is reducing the number of outdoor drinking fountains and eroding public trust in water quality. Rising concerns among users over drinking water quality, and awareness regarding contamination of water in mega urban areas has led to fear of disease transfer from outdoor drinking fountains. This along with the cost incurred for water inspection is expected to restrain the market in the coming years.
