High Tech Toilets on the Rise in U.S.
December 30, 2016
The latest and greatest gadgets have long been snatched up quickly by tech-savvy consumers in the US, but there’s one place Americans have been lagging behind much of the world when it comes to tech upgrades: their toilet. But recent research indicates that Americans are starting to come around to the idea of bringing the efficiency and improved cleaning of high end bidet toilet seats and smart toilets into their bathrooms.
According to a recent article in Barrons.com, the market research organization The Fredonia Group anticipates a projected annual growth of 8.5% over the next five years for electronic toilets in the US. That’s a lot of upgraded bathrooms! The growth in popularity of electronic bidet toilet seats actually makes a lot of sense as the master bathroom is an area homeowners are spending more money on when doing renovations.
One high tech toilet mentioned in the article goes for over $10,000, but fortunately not all high end toilet technology is that pricey. Electric bidet toilet seats packed with heated seats, warm air dryers, and lots of adjustable wash features are available for $400 – $800. For example, the popular Bio Bidet BB 2000 Bliss from features tons of high end features including a hybrid water heating system which combines the technology of the reservoir tank system and the tankless heating system.
