The latest designs in the high-tech toilet seat market are driven by Japanese technology that is spread across several countries. In Asia, India is an underpenetrated market for high-tech toilets seats, which represents a high potential for growth of the market.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The increasing proportion of the older population and the population with disabilities is likely to increase the demand for toilet assistive devices such as toilet seat raisers. The manufacturers of such products are constantly modifying toilet seats to give adequate features and space, catering to these target populations.”
According to the report, the consumption of self-lifting toilet seats that are manufactured using antimicrobial materials is rising globally. Though the key end-users of these products are commercial end-users, the residential end-user segment is also expected to generate substantial demand for these products in the near future. Toilet seats are designed with self-lift mechanism that raises the seat before use and lowers it after use. The hydraulic lift mechanism is incorporated into the base of the unit. This technology features spring loaded hinges, which gently raise and lower the seat on demand. This action is automatic and occurs by simply pressing downward on the seat.
Further, the report states that electronic toilet seats require careful handling as the water spillage will damage the electronics that are located under the plastic cover. The installation of these seats also requires precision handling as the seat should be gently removed from the ceramic base due the presence of electrical wires and cords that must be carefully disconnected. Frozen water can also cause damage to these toilet seats.
