purifiers.
Taking in view the Swach Bharat Abhiyaan by GOI which focuses on clean
India to help improve health indicators, this product is in the sweet spot
and has the potential to become the most successful HUL brand.

1000-6900.

At the higher end of price, many competitors are present.

Social factors that affect the sales of pure it include the following:

Scarcity of portable drinking water makes it necessary for people to go for point of use
water purifiers.
With two-third of population living in rural areas having limited access to electricity, no
electricity water purifier makes it a valuable proposition for consumer.
High instances of water-related diseases make it value adding proposition to society.
Low societal awareness about importance of safe drinking water is a factor to be worked
upon.

Pureit has 3 (microfibre mesh, carbon trap, Germkill processor).
The filtration rate is on the lower side of 1.8 litres per hour compared to
