An increasing demand for water-saving technology is expected to drive growth in the global smart toilet market, according to a Zion Market Research study.

Smart toilets also often incorporate artificial flushing noises to mask the sounds of the visitor using the loo, avoiding the need for unnecessary flushing.
And when a potential overflow or leak is detected they are able to automatically shut off the water, reducing water waste and utility costs.
The global smart toilet market was said to be worth around US$3,172.30 million in 2021 and is estimated to grow to around US$4,474.55 million by 2028. Another driver for growth is expected to be increased consumer demand for convenience hygiene products.
Smart toilets are able to offer innovative hygiene technologies such as UV lighting, automatic flushing, Bluetooth connectivity and auto-opening lids which are said to provide an enhanced bathroom experience for consumers.
They can also heat up the toilet seat and offer a self-cleaning function. And in some quarters they are becoming a style statement, say the study authors.
These factors coupled with economic growth and the improvement of lifestyles worldwide are expected to act as a significant headwind for the global smart toilet market, according to Zion.
