Water Treatment Chemicals Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global water treatment chemicals market reached a value of US$ 50.3 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Water treatment refers to the process which is carried out for eliminating impurities from water and making it fit for industrial and domestic use. It is primarily divided into four basic processes, boiler water treatment, water purification, cooling water treatment and wastewater effluent treatment. These processes assist in eliminating suspended solids, fungi, viruses, algae, bacteria and minerals present in the water. Some of the chemicals used in the water treatment process include algicides, muriatic acid, chlorine, chlorine dioxide and soda ash. As the existing water supply is insufficient to fulfil the rising demand for safe and fresh water, water treatment chemicals are increasingly being used for purifying ground, sea, and industrial wastewater.

Global Water Treatment Chemicals Industry Drivers:

With growing population and rapid industrialization across both developed and emerging markets, the demand for fresh and useable water has been proliferating. Moreover, the increasing requirement of clean water in power plants, oil and gas, metal and mining, pulp and paper, and chemical processing industries has increased the demand for water treatment chemicals. The limited availability of potable water has also given rise to the recycling of wastewater which is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the market. Apart from this, environmental concerns, stringent government regulations, increasing investment in the industrial sector, growing adoption of chemically treated water, and rising awareness among consumers about the adverse impacts of pollutants are augmenting the demand for water treatment chemicals across the globe.
