Global Water Treatment Chemicals Market: Focus on Type (Corrosion Inhibitor, Coagulants & Flocculants, Scale Inhibitors, Biocides & Disinfectants and pH Adjusters) and End-Users (Municipal, Industrial) - Analysis and Forecast: 2017 to 2021
Improper water treatment and management services has a direct impact on the public health, and leads to air, land, and groundwater pollution. Moreover, rising incidences of droughts and floods has resulted in a rising outbreak of diseases such as cholera, and malaria, among others. It is estimated that globally, approximately 3.5 million people die, annually, because of inadequate water sanitation and hygiene. The Degraded water quality and lack of hygiene contribute to about 88% of the deaths from diarrhoeal diseases. High number of deaths are mostly witnessed in developing countries as compared to the developed economies. Along with environmental hazards, diseases outbreak results into extra municipal expenditures, thus restricting municipalities from investing in other civic amenities, further creating issues in the overall developmental process for any particular region or country.
Increased globalization, surge in waste water volumes and depleting resources for fresh water, among others, have led to an increase in the demand of water globally. According to United Nations, in 2013, an increase in water withdrawal from the fresh water resources is expected to grow by 50% in developing countries, and 18% by developed countries in 2025. It is also estimated that by 2025, approximately 1,800 million people will live in absolute water scarce region and approximately two thirds of the global population will dwell in water stress regions. Therefore, the need for water treatment has increased largely at the global scale. The water treatment industry is expected to advance extensively due to a surge in waste water volumes, increasing water demand for industrial processing, and stringent regulations, among others, in developing and non-developed economies. Existing players will have an established platform for increased commercialization and business expansion across the various water infrastructure segments such as chemicals, and equipment. The high growth rate of the market is due to the increasing demand from high end sectors like oil & gas, pulp & paper, and mining industries. Additionally, high demand in the market is also aided by the burgeoning demand growth for biocides & disinfectants. During the forecast period, water treatment chemicals market is expected to witness growth backed by the rampant demand in the end uses, and rising environmental regulatory concerns. Owing to these factors, the water treatment chemicals market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3%, in terms of value, from 2016 to 2021.
