Report description

The West Europe water cooler market, which scarcely existed 25 years ago, climbed to a record 2.78 million units installed at the end of 2012. The market is still dominated by bottled water coolers, with a 58% share, but their number has fallen in each of the last five years to 1.6 million. In contrast, mains water point-of-use coolers have gained share each year, rising by 6% in 2012 to 1.2 million.

The United Kingdom and Italy remain the largest markets, with a combined 41% share. Switzerland achieved the greatest increase for point-of-use units in 2012. Spain saw an overall decline, with point-of-use gains falling short of bottled water cooler losses. Zenith forecasts continued overall growth, taking the total to 3.2 million in 2017. Provided companies focus their efforts on innovative and sustainable products, customer service and the importance of hydration, there is still strong potential for the future. Point-of-use coolers are expected to reach 50% of the market by 2017.
