Netherlands Bulk HOD Water Market Insights 2014 19 May 2014 The bulk/HOD water market dropped by another 6% during 2013. This is an unbroken trend in the last ten years, with the market is being eroded by a number of factors, including a move towards POU water filters. Whilst these require an upfront investment from the owner, once the installation is paid off the cost per liter is considerably cheaper. Upkeep of the POU system is less expensive than having bubble top bottles delivered, which also take up a large amount of storage space. Bulk/HOD water is not likely to see much recovery in the near future, with a decline of 4% expected in 2014. Even as the economy recovers, bulk/HOD water is unlikely to be one of the first outlays that companies make; coffee machines will often be given greater priority. Furthermore, a number of companies providing coffee to companies also provide bottled water, along with coffee beans and cups. By choosing such services, companies can still provide water refreshment for their staff and customers. The negative growth trend of bulk/HOD water is expected to continue in the long term as POU replaces bulk/HOD water. Reports
