● crisis of confidence in the public concern that the other products are equally safe
So, this incident on the water purifier market in Dongguan of geometry? Last week, the news has not spread, the reporter had investigated the incident on the water purifier market in Dongguan impact of Dongguan, said appliance stores , was sold on the situation, to combat not large, because many consumers were still unaware of.
But the reporter visited the market recently found that as the news continues to spread, many consumers wait and see mood was significantly enhanced. "Originally, we heard the industry is still no national standard, the net is usually used in negative decisions by themselves." Water purifier has been installed Miss Du intended to hear the news that has been heard before domestic water device quality, but off, and now even foreign brands also check out the unqualified, "I'm in the end to buy or not buy it?"
Such worries are not groundless. At present the water purification industry, and there is no specific national standards, the major manufacturers are in use "drinking water health standards", and this water testing standards with the same standard, that is the standard detection threshold is very low. Reporters learned that the investigation, in this case, the State Ministry of Health of domestic brands had been sampling the water purifier and found various types of activated carbon filter, the failure rate has been high, which makes many consumers on the net water trap to trust greatly reduced, so the view from the Dongguan market sales, has been less than ideal.
From Dongguan, a major appliance store data, although the water purifier sales growth year after year, for example, this year compared to last year, up about nearly 20% of the rate of increase, but, overall sales are not encouraging. This data is broadly in line coincided with the national market. According to the data show that the family has developed water purifier has reached 70%, China's output value last year, although the water purification industry, has more than 30 billion yuan, but China's penetration of water purifier is only about 2% penetration also very low.
In this case, many foreign brands took the opportunity to enter the water purifier in Dongguan, a higher threshold because foreign production, which also makes many consumers will choose the sights of these imported water purifier. According to the previous situation of each store sales, 3M and other "foreign brand" is the brand more popular with consumers, and this is the first time of sampling for the "foreign brand", of course, so many consumers on the water purification industry trust greatly reduced.
There are consumers and even respect, this incident in the short term to scrap the idea to buy water purifier, would rather buy a kettle to boil their water to drink, "is more at ease."
● remind the industry to be elected replaceable filter material
Data show that as water purification industry, low barriers to entry, leading to chaos in the heavy industry, currently held by the Ministry of Health-related documents relating to water purification company has more than 1,000, while the undocumented artisanal enterprises has reached 2000 number.
