Middle East & Africa Boiler Water Treatment Chemicals Market - Segmented by Type, Industry, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
The Middle East & Africa boiler water treatment chemicals market is expected to witness a CAGR of around 5%, during the forecast period, 2018 - 2023. Saudi Arabia dominated the Middle East & Africa boiler water treatment chemicals market in 2017.
Increasing Adoption Rate in Middle East to Provide Growing Opportunities in the Market
The Middle East & Africa are expected to witness significant growth in the coming years owing to the consistently increasing demand from the power and processing industries, and the oil & gas sector. With the rising scarcity of water and increasing government regulations regarding the efficient utilization of water are forcing industries to install comprehensive water treatment solutions for efficient plant operation and chemicals supply. The majority of the end-user industries, such as power, oil & gas, textiles & dyes, and food & beverage, are installing boiler water treatment systems, to ensure efficient water utilization. According to Siemens, Middle East will be requiring 267 gigawatts (GW) of power capacity by 2030, thereby adding significant power plants through the upcoming period. The country is also the largest oil-producing nation, thereby having the major number of oil refineries in the world. Such factors are expected to increase the acceptance of boiler water treatment chemicals through the forecast period in this region.
Scale Inhibitors – The Dominating Segment
By type, scale inhibitors dominated the Middle East & Africa boiler water treatment chemicals market in 2017. During boiler water operation at industrial plants, the pipelines accumulate scale on their walls. These scales, if remain untreated, can cause overheating, reduced efficiency in heat transfer, tube failures, and restrict circulation, which, in turn, will reduce the reliability on the boiler water system. To avoid such a situation, scale inhibitors are widely used in various industries, such as oil & gas, power generation, textile, and food processing. As the end user industries continue to grow, coupled with increasing focus to treat water before releasing is expected to drive the market for scale inhibitors through the forecast period in Middle East & Africa region.
Saudi Arabia – the Largest Market amongst Countries
Saudi Arabia dominated the Middle East & Africa market in 2017. The major industries in the country with an extensive usage of boiler water, where the treatment of the water is necessary, are the power industry, the petroleum industry and the cement industry. Among all the Middle Eastern countries, the petrochemical manufacturing industry is expected to grow at the highest rate in Saudi Arabia. By 2021, the country expects to increase its production by 35 million tons and be a leader in this market, despite the strong international market competition. Such positive growth factor is going to help Saudi Arabia dominate the market in the coming years.
