Report Overview: Water Treatment Equipment Industry

Salient Features

  • The water treatment equipment industry in Vietnam is largely under the control of foreign manufacturers. This dominance can be attributed to their capability for large-scale production and their commitment to meeting high technical standards for such equipment.
  • Water purifier brands in Vietnam were largely unknown in the early 2010s until consumer awareness grew and local companies ran successful ad campaigns.
  • Leading local water purifier manufacturers tend to specialise solely in their flagship water purifying products. In contrast, mixed manufacturers expand rapidly into other product categories such as home appliances, kitchen appliances, and refrigeration.

Value Chain/Business Model

  • The water purifier market can be segmented into Specialised and Mixed water purifier producers.
  • Specialised water purifier producers enter the market and position themselves as water purifier manufacturers and water purifiers remain their flagship product with which consumers typically associate their brands.
  • Mixed water purifier producers do not primarily produce water purifiers; instead, they gain their brand recognition from other products.
  • All leading local water purifier manufacturers have their retail stores in Vietnam and distribute products through local electronic supermarkets.

Other Points

  • The market for water treatment equipment for industrial use is expected to grow as the government addresses insufficiencies in both water supply and wastewater treatment. Water supply currently fulfils 73% of the country’s demand, while wastewater treatment fulfills only 15%.
