China Water Treatment Chemicals Market - Segmented by Product, by Application, and by End-User Industry - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)

China water treatment chemicals market is expected to witness a moderately high growth rate over 7% during the forecast period, 2018-2023. The market is driven by a number of factors, such as increasing demand for reliable industrial wastewater treatment solutions, reduced fresh water content from saline intrusion, and adverse climatic conditions, among others.

Accelerating Demand from Power Generation and Process Industries

The power industry is a major user of water treatment chemicals. Thermal power generation utilizes large amounts of steam to drive turbines for power generation. High-pressure steam is used for the propulsion of these turbines. A 600 MW thermal power plant uses around 1800 tons/ hour of steam from the boiler, for which the circulating water requirement in tropical areas is around 120,000 cubic meter/hour. Additionally, an increasing number of regulations regarding environmental safety and pollution levels in China adds to the growth of the market as water treatment chemicals help maintain the optimum efficiency of heat exchange equipment and improve safety by minimizing expansion differences in the equipment. Therefore, the surge in the construction of power plants is increasing the demand for water and is thus, driving the water treatment chemicals market.

Growing Demand in Electronic Power Generation

The electric power generation industry is one of the biggest consumers of water in China. Water in the electric power generation industry is utilized in many ways, which include steam production for spinning turbines, humidifying air flow into gas-turbines, inter-cooling air in gas-turbine plants, plant maintenance, including blow-down, and hydraulic ash disposal, acting as a heat transfer medium in some nuclear plants, and condenser cooling in steam plants. The electric power generation industry is one of the key sources of industrial wastewater. The wastewater from this industry contains significant levels of toxic metal impurities, such as lead, mercury, arsenic, chromium and cadmium, among others. These impurities can cause significant damage to the environment, if not treated properly. Therefore, the electric power generation industry highly utilizes the services of water treatment chemicals.

Major Players: SNF (China) Flocculant Co., Ltd., Nalco (China) Environmental Solutions Co. Ltd., and China National Bluestar (Group) Co. Ltd., Suez, etc., among others.
