MARKET OVERVIEW

The global water treatment chemicals market was valued at USD 30,218.00 million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 38119.46 million by 2026, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.95%. Earlier, efforts to control water pollution prevented human waste from reaching water bodies as population control was in the local authority's hands, not national concerns. But now, water pollution issues are public concerns about national water quality and maintaining a healthy ecosystem. The basic function of wastewater treatment chemicals is to detoxify the waste present in the water. Primarily there are three ways of treating wastewater, namely primary, chemical, and biological processes.
 
KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • In 2020, the global water treatment chemicals market was valued at USD 30,218.00 million. The COVID-19 outbreak adversely impacted the water treatment chemicals segment.
  • The alternative water treatment technologies are a major hindrance in the water treatment chemical market.
  • The industrial segment accounts for the highest in the water treatment chemicals market share in terms of revenue. This is majorly due to the huge number of industries that need clean water either for production or cleaning. 
  • The APAC was the largest market for coagulant & flocculation in 2020, posting revenue of USD 4,652.37 million. Further, it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.65% during the forecast period.
  • Companies should focus on balanced geographical expansion, where they can focus on emerging markets, where 50% of the revenue comes from the emerging industry.

WATER CHEMICALS MARKET SEGMENTATION

This research report includes a detailed segmentation by

  • Chemical type
  • End-User
  • Geography

SEGMENTATION ANALYSIS

  • In the chemical process, different chemicals such as coagulant & flocculant, pH adjusters, defoamers, biocides & disinfectants, and boiler water chemicals are majorly used for wastewater treatment.
  • In 2020, the chemical for water treatment was dominated by the coagulant & flocculant segment, which accounted for 36.47%. The advantage of coagulation is that it reduces the time required to settle out suspended solids and is effective in removing very fine particles. 
  • Chlorine is the most widely used disinfectant, whereas ozone and UV radiation are popular for wastewater effluent treatment.
  • Oil-based defoamers are the most preferred type of defoamers by the supplier. The oil-based defoamers are based on either mineral oil, vegetable oil, native oil, or white oil to dissolve in water easily.
  • In 2020, the global water treatment chemical was dominated by the industrial segment.
  • The paper industry has seen a slight decline due to digitalization, which has impacted talc production in the paper industry. 
  • Some of the drivers of municipal waste are increasing government regulations, rapid urbanization, increasing population, and increasing the number of resorts and swimming pools where clean water is needed in a large quantity.

GEOGRAPHICAL ANALYSIS

  • In APAC, the main reason behind the dominating market is the increasing population, rapid industrialization, penetration of strong agricultural activities, limited availability of potable water, and government regulation to control water pollution.
  • North America and Europe is the mature market for water treatment chemical.
  • The factors driving the water treatment industry growth in Europe are the large consumption of water in industries such as sugar, petrochemical, textile, pulp & paper, and food processing. Moreover, the growing concern about the detrimental effect of polluted water on the environment coupled with an increasing number of residential & commercial construction projects is likely to fuel the demand. 
  • The Middle East has the lowest market shares, but the demand for water treatment chemicals for oilfields will flourish in the forthcoming years.

VENDOR ANALYSIS

  • The key vendors in the water treatment chemicals and water treatment equipment market are ITT Inc., Solenis, Evonik Industries, Ecolab, and Evoqua Water Technologies LLC. 
  • Competition in the industry will intensify further due to technological advances and product line expansions. To survive in such a competitive environment, manufacturers must regularly introduce new or improved products and adapt to the constantly changing market trends.
  • In the last decade, many mergers and acquisitions have benefitted companies by enabling better access to raw materials, production and distribution facilities, and R&D capabilities.
  • Companies should invest significantly in R&D activities, which ensure their success in the long-term feed additives industry. Henceforth, several players are investing a huge amount in R&D activities.
  • By the end of 2021, Platinum Equity is expected to buy Solenis, a water treatment company, for USD 5.3 billion.
