Concerning the statement published by the specialists, the scope of the global Industrial Water Treatment Chemicals Market was projected at US$ 13.11 billion in 2017. It is expected to develop by a CAGR of 4.2% during the period of forecast to touch US$ 18.3 billion by the completion of 2025. Decreasing obtainability of fresh and fit-to-drink water, mainly in the Middle East & Africa along with the Asia Pacific, is expected to boost the necessity to treat wastewater during the period of forecast, which in turn will boost up the demand for industrial water treatment chemicals.

The maximum frequently utilized chemicals are iron, chlorine dioxide, muriatic acid, sodium bicarbonate, aluminum, chlorine, and algicide. Flocculants, coagulants, filter cleaners, and clarifiers too form an important share of the method of water treatment. The chemicals of water treatment comprising the above-stated products are utilized in contaminated seawater, rivers, and wastewater discharges, to make the source harmless for humanoid drinking.


Such as the outcome of growing industrialized accomplishments, speedy urbanization, and rising financial growth the water demand is increasing constantly. Several products are utilized to fulfill the constantly increasing demand and confirm the safety of the customer. The four elementary procedures comprise the purification, treatment of wastewater effluent, cooling treatment, and boiler treatment.

In the U.S.A, demand for freshwater is expected to upsurge due to altering type of weather, alterations in the generation of energy, usage of the land, and increasing humanoid populace. The freshwater is majorly utilized within the country for irrigation, livestock, aquaculture, also for cooling of the electric power plants, industrialized and metropolitan usages.

Due to the unpredictable rainfall within the regions of Africa, Asia Pacific, and Central & South America, there is low per head availability of fresh water for human ingestion. These areas are developing markets for biocides which are utilized in the management of industrial wastewater to keep up a clean environment and deliver drinkable supply for the populaces. Growing industrialized productivity in the sector of power generation and decreasing water footmark by way of recycling are expected to motivate the global industrial water treatment chemicals industry.


Greater prices linked with the procedures, comprising the charges of pollution control, energy, and maintenance, add considerably to the procedure charges. This could perform such as an interference to the development of the industrial water treatment chemical market. Many additional restrictions that affect the prices of operation comprise capability of the plant, figure of workforces, geographic place of the plant, kind of sewage that requires to be treated, choice of chemicals & technologies, and gradation of mechanization.


The global industrial water treatment chemicals industry can be classified by Application, End-User Industry, Type of Product, and Region. By Application, it can be classified as Water Desalination, Cooling & Boilers, Raw Water Treatment, Effluent Water Treatment, and Others. By End-User Industry, it can be classified as Chemical, Paper & Pulp, Oil & Gas, Metal & Mining, Power and Others. By Type of Product, it can be classified as Scale Inhibitors, pH Conditioners, Biocides & Disinfectants, Oxygen Scavengers, Sludge Conditioners, Oxidants, Corrosion Inhibitors, Antifoams, and Others.

Regional Lookout:

By Region, the global industrial water treatment chemicals market can be classified as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In 2017, the Asia Pacific region, comprising China, was responsible for the biggest share of volume and revenue. Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, and the Philippines administrated the water PPP development due to the controlling support from officials for the involvement of the private sector in the management of the wastewater and metropolitan substructure in this nation-state. These features are expected to increase the regional market during the period of forecast.

One-off the most important nations suffering from drought is Taiwan because it obtains merely 21% of forceful rainfall per year. Not only this decreases the class of the air and compromises the comfort of persons, but furthermore, influences planned businesses of manufacturing. Hence, resource organizers of Taiwan are concentrating on safeguarding along with expanding its resource supply during the approaching years. This is powered by the stable growth in the nation’s industrial demand from 15.4 million m3/year to 16.4 million m3/year.

The strong existence of manufacturing amenities in the sectors of automotive, pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, and chemicals in Canada and the U.S.A is expected to perform an important part in growing the demand for the services of water treatment during the period of forecast.

Deteriorating development in the sector of mining in the U.S.A., due to the outcome of inadequate funds for the functioning of mineral processors and increasing prices of labor is expected to decrease the possibility of management services during the nearby future. On the other hand, increasing manufacture of automobiles within the state is expected to upsurge the usage of treatment services in plant utilities during the period of forecast. This will boost up the development of the industrial water treatment chemical industry.


Some of the important companies for the industrial water treatment chemicals market are BASF SE, Suez S.A., Kemira Oyj, Solvay S.A., Buck man Laboratories International Inc., The Dow Chemical Company, Ecolab Incorporated, Snf Floerger, So lenis LLC, AkzoNobel N.V., Cortec Corporation, and BWA Water Additives.
