India Water Treatment Chemicals Market - Segmented by Product, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)

The Indian water treatment chemicals market has been estimated at USD 54.36 million in 2017. The market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.87% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023. Coagulants and flocculants dominated the India water treatment chemicals market with nearly 25% share in the market, while biocides and disinfectants segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR through the forecast period.

Increasing Demand for Biocides

Biocides are widely used in cooling water treatment plants. Cooling water towers are ideal locations for the growth of biological organisms such as bacteria, algae, fungi, sulphate-reducing bacteria, and protozoa. Biocides are also used on line or a part of a water cleaning program to control bio fouling in reverse osmosis membranes. These biocides are used prior to the RO system, to regulate bio-growth in the membrane. The market has been promoting newly designed biocides like THPS. These biocides have relatively lower toxicity, rapid breakdown in environment, and rapid breakdown, unlike conventional biocides.

In India, biocides and disinfectants are majorly used in municipal, and chemical manufacturing (incl. petrochemicals) industry. With the growth in the chemical manufacturing industry and growing demand for potable drinking water due to rapid industrialization and urbanization, respectively, the demand for water treatment chemicals, especially biocides and disinfectants, are expected to increase.

Power Sector Dominates the Market

Power Sector has the highest share in the market, accounting for nearly 26% of the country’s total market share in 2017. Water in power generation industry is used in many ways such as steam production for spinning turbines, humidifying airflow into gas turbines, inter-cooling air in gas-turbine plants, and various other applications. India's power sector consists of conventional sources such as coal, hydro, & nuclear power to non-conventional sources such as wind, solar, & agriculture & domestics waste. Electricity demand in the country has been consistently increasing, owing to growing industrialization & urbanization, and increasing population. Thereby, to suffice the growing demand for electricity, massive addition to the existing installed capacity is required. Hence, the demand for water treatment chemicals is expected to rise significantly from the power sector.
