Growth Projected in Waterless Urinal Market


VISTA, CALIF.—A new report from Transparency Market Research, a global market research company registered in Wilmington, Delaware, predicts that the waterless urinal market will expand by nearly six percent in the next eight years.

The report estimates that the market is currently valued at $128 million. “It is expected to grow steadily…reaching a value of $205 million by the end of 2031,” the report says.

The report cites the following factors as the main drivers of this growth:

  • Global population growth has increased the demand for public restroom facilities. No-water urinals will be more widely adopted in these facilities due to global conservation efforts, increased focus on sustainability, and government initiatives.
  • As for government initiatives, the report said more countries have gone beyond incentives and are now requiring the installation of no-water urinals to reduce water consumption and waste.
  • The research study indicates another growth factor is because the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency “has emphasized the potential for significant water savings by replacing traditional urinals with no-water alternatives.”

Waterless or no-water urinals direct urine into a trap or cylinder at the bottom of the urinal. The trap prevents odors from escaping into the restroom. Because no water is needed, substantial water and cost savings are two of the key benefits.

The report identifies Asia Pacific countries, such as India and China, as the regions of the world where the growth of the waterless urinal market is expected to be the most noteworthy.

The Middle East and Africa will also contribute to the growth of this market due to a “rising focus on public sanitation and hygiene.”

Waterless Co., Inc.’s President and CEO, Klaus Reichardt, says that similar research studies are published every few years, invariably reporting similar findings.

“What’s new here is that one of the reasons for selecting waterless urinals is their sanitation and hygiene benefits,” he says. “This is a consequence of the pandemic. No-water urinals have always been considered more sanitary than conventional urinals. But after the pandemic, sanitation and hygiene has become a much bigger concern.”
