About the Industrial Anti-Scaling Chemicals Market

The global industrial anti-scaling chemicals market is driven by the increasing demand from key end-uses including the oil, gas, and mining and water and wastewater treatment industries. The rapid growth of these industries in leading regions such as APAC, Central and South America, and Africa will be a key contributing factor.

Anti-scaling chemicals are used in industries that are key contributors to GDP growth like oil, gas, and mining. In addition, anti-scaling chemicals are used in other prominent industries such as food and beverage and municipal and industrial water treatment, which are experiencing rapid growth in developing regions such as Central and South America, the Middle East, Africa, and APAC.

High-value anti-scaling chemicals have become an indispensable part of process water systems in any enterprise that aims to achieve higher profitability through cost reduction. Since anti-scaling chemicals substantially reduce operating costs, the demand for them from water treatment companies has increased.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial anti-scaling chemicals market to grow at a CAGR of 4.42% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial Anti-Scaling Chemicals Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial anti-scaling chemicals market: Kemira, BWA Water Additives, Dow, and Clariant.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Accepta, Akzo Nobel, American Water Chemicals, Ashland, Avista Technologies, BASF, GE Water and Process Technologies, Genesys, Innovative Chemical Technologies, Italmatch Chemicals, Nalco, Nowata, Solenis, Solvay, and Toray Membrane.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which will impact the market positively is the increased focus on biodegradability. The global industrial anti-scaling chemicals market will experience increasing vendor focus on enhancing the biodegradability of anti-scaling chemicals. Biodegradable products have low environmental impact and are in substantial demand in developed regions such as North America and Western Europe, where consumers are increasingly shifting toward the adoption of ecofriendly chemicals. Stringent environmental regulations in these regions have also encouraged the successful introduction of biodegradable products.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the rising demand for RO and nano-filtration membranes anti-scaling chemicals. Osmosis is a naturally-occurring process in which solvent molecules from a low concentration solution pass through a semipermeable membrane and into a solution with a higher solute concentration. This equalizes the solute concentrations on both sides. A semipermeable membrane has selective permeability that allows certain molecules to pass while restricting the movement of others. RO, in contrast, applies pressure on a concentrated solution to force it to filter through a semi-permeable membrane and into a solution with lower concentration. RO is capable of removing over 99% of ions, bacteria, colloids, organics, particles and pyrogens from the feedwater.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is environmental concerns. Although anti-scaling chemicals are known to have low toxicity and a minimal negative impact on the environment, over 85% of the products currently available have poor degradability and exist in water systems after discharge. Such anti-scaling chemicals may interfere with the element cycles of trace metals, presenting potential risks.
