End-User Landscape, Company Market Share Analysis, and Competitor Analysis
Automatic Faucets are the taps that work on proximity sensors that are mechanized to open the faucet valves to allow the water flow. The faucets are also automized to close the valves within few seconds of no detection or presence of hand movements in the proximity of the sensors. These automatic faucets enable the users a hands-free operational experience.
Increasing technological transformations and automation in various sectors across the world are encouraging people to adapt to these automated faucets. The extensive shortage of water across every corner of the globe is boosting the market growth. With the increased water issues, the automatic faucets also contribute significantly to water conservation acts. The automatic faucets enable quick opening and closing of the valves when not in need; it also prevents water leaks through its specialized systems and low flow of water. Studies have shown that the traditional conventional water taps pour approximately 10 to 15 liters of water every minute, where the automatic faucets, with their advanced systems and low water flow, pour not more than 6 liters of water per minute, thus helping save 70% of the water which could be otherwise left unused. Studies have also proved that the leakages from the usage of traditional dripping taps can waste 300 ml to approximately 1 liter of water per hour, which can be extensively saved by installing automatic faucets.
Automatic faucets are also one of the effective measures to save energy resources required to circulate water to various outlets. It is very efficient in saving energy, be it electricity based or battery run. The reduced water usage through these automatic faucets also enables households to experience a reduction in water usage bills and fees required to be paid.
Just like in the recent pandemic period, where the diseases are highly infectious and contagious in nature, these automatic faucets prove to be the best options for touch free access to water taps.
The automatic faucets prove to be a better option, especially in sanitary facilities, with no touch, thus maintaining hygiene, clean sanitation, preventing cross contamination among different users through these faucets. Also, with emerging transformations and innovations, the automatic faucet market is highly influenced to bring in new designs and technologies like the ones with the usage of carbon rods and features like silent mechanisms that attract the users' attention and encourage careful usage of water.
Automatic faucets require a good source of electricity to operate efficiently. End users across the world majorly use electrically powered automatic faucets to experience better sensor detection and mechanism. Electrically powered automatic faucets enable the users to experience smooth usage without the issues of power exhaustion. Automatic faucets used in households are extensively used at every hour of the day, requiring a continuous flow of power without making the users keep a check on the ratio of power usage. The transformers used in electrically powered faucets enable the continuous power to flow through the constantly open solenoid valves. These electrically powered automatic faucets require considerably less maintenance as compared to the battery powered automatic faucets, where the user needs to be aware of the amount of power getting used, and require extra expenses to install new batteries once the previous ones are exhausted.
The solenoids required in the automatic faucets strictly require low voltage direct currents (DC) from between 6V to a maximum of 9V to operate. Requiring a high and constant flow of power to operate these automatic faucets strictly require direct current to enable efficient sensor mechanism and detection to movement. Depending on the power type, the end-users may or may not require specific power converters for the automatic faucets to work. In the case of faucets working on battery power, the installers need not require power converters as the power from batteries is usually in direct current type; however, when it comes to sources that are powered from Alternating current (AC), they require AC to DC converters, for the automatic faucets to be functional. The automatic faucets require Direct current as they ensure higher efficiency, requiring less insulation than the alternative current.
Commercial outlets are the most significant and largest end-users of automatic faucets. Ranging from public recreational spaces like malls, multiplex, cinema halls, business centers, or offices, they have distinctively shifted themselves from the conventional and traditional tap mechanisms to automatic faucets. The increasing awareness about clean and hygienic commercial places has encouraged the installments of these automatic faucets for better delivery of services. Promoting hygienic and clean sanitary facilities within these commercial buildings has become a very essential aspect of promoting a healthy recreational environment. Touchless restrooms by installing automatic faucets enable these commercial building operators to boost their efficiency. Reports have shown that these commercial places consider these ideas of touchless restrooms and automatic faucets are smart financial ideas for the business, enabling a high level of convenience.
However, in many developed regions of the world, the residential areas with their gradually increasing lifestyle are understanding the importance of automatic faucets and are installing them in their houses. In today's scenario, in the pandemic situation, the people are getting more aware of cross contamination and hygiene, which is encouraging more residential automatic faucet installments.
The North American region has its dominance and the largest share in the automatic faucet market. The countries like the USA and Canada are some of the most developed countries with expanding per capita incomes and improved lifestyle of the majority of the people. Considering these aspects, these countries in the North American region are the most significant contributors to this market's growth. There has been fast adoption of automatic faucets instead of traditional taps among commoners in the North American region.
With its majority of the countries being in the developing phase, the Asia-Pacific region is very gradually adapting itself to the automatic faucets. These countries in the APAC region like Singapore, China, Japan, South Korea, and India have seen a growth in installations of automatic faucets in numerous of its commercial buildings and places. These countries still have a long way to cover with respect to the adaptation of automatic faucets in residential places. Due to increasing diseases and unhygienic sanitation issues, the traditional restrooms in public and private facilities are slowly being replaced by touchless restrooms and automatic faucets. Increasing awareness among the commoners about a clean and healthy environment and increasing governmental interventions in the APAC region encourage growth in the automatic faucet market.
