Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market, by Type (Flocculants, Coagulants, Disinfectants, Others), Application (Oil & Gas, Metal Processing, Food & Beverage, Pulp & Paper, Chemicals, Electronics), and Region - Trends & Forecasts to 2020

Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market, by Type (Flocculants, Coagulants, Disinfectants, Others), Application (Oil & Gas, Metal Processing, Food & Beverage, Pulp & Paper, Chemicals, Electronics), and Region - Trends & Forecasts to 2020

Industrial sludge originates from the process of treatment of waste water. Owing to the physical-chemical processes involved in the treatment, the sludge tends to concentrate heavy metals as well as poorly biodegradable trace organic compounds and potentially pathogenic organisms (viruses, bacteria and so on) present in waste waters. Industrial sludge treatment play a very important role in the effective disposal of sludge originated after waste water treatment. Growing legislative importance, improvements in sludge treatment, rapid industrialization remain the key driving forces in the market. On the basis of application, the market for industrial sludge treatment can be broadly segmented into oil & gas, metal processing, food & beverage, pulp & paper, chemicals, and electronics. Though food & beverage is the major application market for industrial sludge treatment and serves majority of the industrial sludge treatment market, personal care & chemicals is an emerging market and the demand for the same is growing at a high pace.

The North American region is the biggest market of industrial sludge treatment, accounting for around one third of the total industrial sludge treatment demand. There is a lot of scope in the Asia-Pacific market due to the rapid industrialization in the region. With the emerging developments in the sludge treatment and rising legislative importance in the region, the demand for industrial sludge treatment may further augment at a higher pace.

Currently, the demand for the industrial sludge treatment is increasing in the end-user industries. The key drivers for increasing demand of industrial sludge treatment are stringent environmental regulations, replacement of existing treatment solutions and increased investments in the chemical, oil & gas, and food & beverage industries. Technological developments & innovations, agreements, partnerships & collaborations are identified as key strategies to expand the industrial sludge treatment market.

This study on industrial sludge treatment market estimates its global demand and market size in terms of value and volume for 2014 and projects the expected demand and also the market size for the same by 2020.
