Süßwasser’s has positioned the water filtration treatment system based on quality. This product is somewhat streamline to other water filtration treatment systems on the market. The product is made with the finest materials such as durable coated steel to sustain environmental distress and the system is priced competitively, but technological different than competitors. To gain competitive advantage, the manufacturer added an exclusive membrane filtration process, total quality management (TQM) control system to ensure craftsmanship during production, and a money back guarantee with five years of purchase warranty. This filtration process adds value. Even though the product offering has a competitive advantage over many competitors— contenders are aggressive in this market. The water treatment and water waste management industry have many key as well as niche market players divided into “end-use segments: industrial, municipal, residential, and commercial” (Global Industry Analyst, Inc., 2011, p. 1). These players partake in a domestic or “global market for water equipment and supplies” (p. 1). Listed below are several worldwide players:
