Market Overview:

The global water coolers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period 2018-2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for bottled water coolers and plumbed-in water coolers from commercial and residential applications respectively. Additionally, the growing awareness about the benefits of using cold drinking water has led to an increase in demand for water coolers across regions. In terms of type, the bottled water cooler segment is expected to dominate the global market during 2018-2030 owing to its easy portability and low installation cost as compared to plumbed-in water coolers.

Global Water Coolers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Water coolers are machines that dispense cooled water to people in their workplaces, schools, or other locations. They can be either self-contained units with a built-in water tank and cooling system or bottleless coolers that use a plumbing connection to provide cold water from a central source. The importance of water coolers is twofold: First, they provide an easy and convenient way for people to get cold drinking water; secondly, they often serve as the main source of hydration for large groups of people (such as in schools or factories) where it would be impractical or too expensive to provide individual bottles of cold drinking water for everyone.

Bottled Water Coolers:

Bottled water coolers are portable units that provide fresh and cold filtered water to consumers. These devices are equipped with filtration systems that remove bacteria, dust particles, dirt, and other harmful components from the bottled drinking water. The purified drinking water is stored in the stainless-steel tank of the cooler which can be carried easily by using a shoulder strap or hand carry option provided by manufacturers.

Plumbed-in Water Coolers:

Water coolers are devices that are used to store water for later use. It can be of various types including tankless, connected, and direct-injection type. The stored water is usually used for cooling the equipment or machines in a data center or workplace. It offers benefits such as reduction in electricity bills and cost savings by using cold water instead of hot water from the utility company, thus making it more effective at cooling systems and reducing energy costs.

Application Insights:

The commercial application segment held the largest share of more than 60.0% in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the increasing number of cafes, restaurants and hotels at global level. In developed countries like U.S., Canada and UK, bottled water is generally provided free of charge by hotels and restaurants on account of high demand for cold drinks during summer season when temperature goes beyond 30°C (86°F). This has resulted in increased use of bottled water coolers in such commercial establishments over the past few years.

Residential application segment is expected to expand at a CAGR exceeding 8% from 2018 to 2030 owing to growing awareness about health benefits associated with regular intake of cold freshwater throughout year round as it acts as an effective natural cooler compared to other liquids including alcoholic beverages.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has a large number of commercial offices, which use water coolers on a regular basis. Additionally, increasing disposable income levels coupled with growing real estate sector in developing countries such as India and China are expected to drive the regional market growth over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific is anticipated to be followed by North America during the same period owing to rising demand for bottled-water-based coolers from residential as well as commercial applications. Increasing awareness regarding health benefits associated with cold beverages such as improved digestive system and reduction in cholesterol level is likely to boost product demand during this timeframe.

Europe also accounted for more than 20% of revenue share in 2017 owing to high consumer preference towards piping-in water coolers rather than using bottles due t o their ease of maintenance.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for healthy and refreshing drinks: The water cooler market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2017 to 2025, owing to the increasing demand for healthy and refreshing drinks among consumers across the globe. This is mainly because of the growing awareness about the benefits of drinking clean and cold water.
  • Rising disposable income: The growth of the water cooler market is also attributed to rising disposable incomes in developing countries such as India, China, Brazil, etc., which has led to an increase in consumer spending on various products and services including cold beverages.
  • Growing number of office workers: The growth in office-based employment opportunities has resulted in an increase in demand for water coolers across workplaces, thereby driving market growth during the forecast period. In addition, technological advancements have made it easier for people working from home offices or remotely to access chilled drinking water through portable devices such as smart cups or bottles with built-in cooling technology that keep beverages cold up to 24 hours without using ice cubes or refrigeration packs (source). This is likely to further fuel market growth over the next few years.
