Market Synopsis


The global water treatment chemicals market is estimated to reach USD 67.69 billion by 2025, growing with the CAGR of 6.5%. Water treatment chemicals remove bacteria, algae, viruses, minerals, and suspended solid from untreated water. It is also used for treating alkalinity and maintaining the pH level of industrial wastewater. The power and manufacturing industries across the globe require a large amount of water to ensure efficient operation. Power plants, for instance, require water for steam generation, ash handling, flue gas desulfurization systems, and cooling purposes. Cooling steam through cooling towers requires nearly 90% of the total water used in power plants. All these processes produce a large amount of contaminated water, which is hazardous for the environment. High demand for water treatment chemicals in end-use industries is influencing the manufactures to increase their production capacity. For instance, in November 2018, Lanxess, a Germany-based specialty chemical company invested USD 18.27 crores in expanding its production capacity in India for water treatment chemicals, chemical intermediaries and high-performance plastic.


The manufacturing industries such as chemical, pulp & paper, oil & gas, food & beverage, and mining also generate a large amount of contaminated wastewater daily. Thus, wastewater generated from these industries is generally laden with toxic, carcinogenic, and non-biodegradable chemicals; organic matters and mineral nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous; and traces of metals and oxides, which are essential to be treated before discharging it in the water bodies thus propelling the demand for global wastewater treatment chemicals during the forecast period.


Besides, with the increasing production capacities of manufacturing industries, the amount of industrial effluents is also increasing. These effluents upon entering the water bodies disturb the chemical oxygen demand (COD) and biological oxygen demand (BOD) balance, resulting in water pollution, favoring the growth of water treatment chemicals.  Furthermore, stringent regulations by the governments across the globe have been implemented on the discharge of effluent into the environment such as the Drinking Water Directive, Sewage Sludge Directive, Bathing Water Directive, Nitrate Directive, Groundwater Directive, Biocides Directive, and Water Framework Directive, among others. The US Environment Protection Agency (US EPA) has also enforced federal clean water and safe drinking water laws under acts—Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and Clean Water Act (CWA), to take part in pollution prevention efforts aimed at protecting watersheds and sources of drinking water. Thus, to control the COD and BOD balance and to meet the regulatory standards, the demand for water treatment chemicals is rising in the power and manufacturing industries.

Regional Analysis


The global water treatment chemicals market has been studied across five key regions, namely Asia-Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa.


In Europe, increasing consumption of water treatment chemicals in wastewater discharge of manufacturing industries is projected to boost the regional demand. In addition, stringent regulation imposed by the government to control water pollution is likely to favor water treatment chemicals products during the review period. North America water treatment chemicals market is led by increasing application in the chemical processing sector.  


The market in Asia-Pacific is growing at a remarkable pace owing to the rise in population, causing water pollution,  thus fueling the demand for water treatment chemicals during the review period. Leading countries such as India, China, Malaysia, Thailand, and South Korea are witnessing industrial revolution which has resulted in the higher wastewater generation demanding greater amount of water treatment chemicals.


The Middle East & Africa and Latin America region are likely to witness healthy growth during the forecast period owing to high oil & gas exploration activities in the region.


Market Segmentation


The global water treatment chemicals market has been segmented based on type, application, and region. The based on type the market is segmented as coagulants & flocculants, corrosion inhibitors, biocides & disinfectants, and scale Inhibitors. The biocides & disinfectants segment is growing at significant CAGR owing rise in a number of chronic diseases caused by the consumption of polluted water across the globe. Based on application, the global water treatment is divided as a municipal water treatment plant, chemical processing, power generation, and others. The application of water treatment chemicals in the municipal plant is likely to grow due to rising concern regarding fresh drink water across the globe.
