Future Market Insights
Plumbing fixtures are a replaceable device that can be connected with the plumbing system to drain and deliver water. Plumbing fixtures have evolved along with all the other areas of the plumbing industry. Fixtures have changed drastically in the last few decades in terms of colour, material and style. There are various types of plumbing fixtures available in the market which include bathtubs, drinking fountains, channel drains, showers, urinals, etc. Various standards regarding the design & effective operation of plumbing fixtures are made by various governments. Both the component material as well as the design of plumbing fixtures (wash-basins, tubs, sinks, toilet pans, etc.) are subject to standards and certifications which are required to ensure safety and integrity.
Earlier, conventional plumbing fixtures were used as they used to be not only affordable but also easily available. However, nowadays, manufacturers are focussing on the development and utilization of electronic-based plumbing fixtures. These days, most public places such as showrooms, malls and hotels, people generally have sensor-operated urinals with fewer moving parts -- this reduces wear and tear and also elongates the life of urinals. Manually-operated flush valves are becoming increasingly rare. Sensor-operated valves also reduce the consumption of water by the way of intelligent flushing schedules based on fuzzy logic.
