Bottled Water Processing Market Introduction:
Water will always remain the healthy drink option, and bottled water will be the healthiest option compared to any other soda. In recent years, consumer interest in bottled beverages has been linked to their health, safety, convenience and value. The global market is mainly dependent on the technology and equipment used for bottled water production. The main driver of the worldwide market is the shortage of drinking water and the contamination of different water bodies.
The filter segment used for water purification is the fastest-growing sector in the global market for bottled water processing. The section that dominated the market is the reverse osmosis segment and the still water segment. In order to increase their market share, different manufacturers of bottled water treatment systems are launching new exotic flavors and presenting bold and attractive packaging designed to attract consumers.
Other factors contributing to the growth of the global market include research and development in advanced processing equipment. Other factors contributing to the growth of the worldwide market include growing consumer concerns about health and stricter requirements for purity in the beverage sector. The factor limiting the growth of the world market is the huge capital expenditure required to establish new production facilities.
Steps for treating bottled water
Filtration of water
Water must be free of contaminants that alter its quality, reduce its useful life and pose a pathogenic threat to consumers.
The air in the storage tank must be free of micro-organisms so that the stored water is not contaminated.
Carbonation is the step of adding carbon dioxide to a beverage. It is used to produce sparkling water. The CO2 injected into the water must be free of particles and micro-organisms.
Bottle blower and bottle washer
To maintain the quality of the beverage and its shelf life, it is essential to use a safe and reliable container.
Bottle blowing is done during any process using PET bottles. Water used to flush PET bottles must be free of contaminants; Its filtration guarantees a good quality of the bottles before filling.
Gas filtration can also be used during the filling process of soft drinks. For filling to be possible, the filling container must be pressurized, and the gas used must be microbiologically stable.
Some say that bottled water is not always safer than tap water. Tap water from the city's water supply systems is controlled by the Environmental Protection Agency, while the FDA monitors bottling activities. Bottled water is one of the most monitored products by the FDA. The standards for these two agencies are a little different; For example, the EPS system monitors asbestos while the FDA does not. Bottlers are also not very strict to control or disinfect parasites. This is mainly because the FDA states that at the source where water is bottled, it is unlikely to harbor pests or contain these harmful elements. However, bottlers are subject to stricter standards for lead and chlorine.
But, it's not just the FDA. Bottled water is controlled at three levels to ensure high standards of quality and safety. It is also regulated by the state and by professional associations such as the International Association of Water Bottlers (IBWA). Although each bottler uses different techniques, here are some general guidelines for bottling the water.
North America dominates the world bottled water market. The United States is the largest country in North America. The Asia-Pacific region is also experiencing rapid growth in the bottled water processing market. The countries that contribute to the market growth are China and India. In the European area, Germany and Italy are the primary consumers of bottled water. The main factors driving the global market in the Asia-Pacific region are high consumption, changing trends in consumption patterns, bulk water purchases and the increase in disposable income.
