Water Treatment Chemicals Market – Global Outlook and Forecasts 2021-2026 – Growing Concerns Over Waterborne Diseases – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – The report “Water Treatment Chemicals Market – Global Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026” has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The water treatment chemicals market size is expected to reach USD 38,119.46 million by 2026, with a CAGR of over 3.95% during the forecast period

Previously, efforts to control water pollution prevented human waste from reaching water bodies as population control was in the hands of local authorities and not national concerns. But now water pollution issues are public concerns about national water quality and maintaining a healthy ecosystem. The basic function of wastewater treatment chemicals is to detoxify the wastes present in the water. There are mainly three methods of wastewater treatment, namely primary, chemical and biological processes.

The study examines the current Water Treatment Chemicals market scenario and its market dynamics for the period 2021-2026. It covers a detailed overview of several catalysts, restraints and trends for market growth. The study presents both demand and supply aspects of the market. It profiles and reviews the major companies and other leading companies operating in the market.


  • In 2020, the global water treatment chemicals market is valued at USD 30,218.00 million. The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the water treatment chemicals segment.

  • Alternative water treatment technologies are a major obstacle in the water treatment chemicals market.

  • The industrial segment represents the highest water treatment chemicals market share in terms of revenue. This is mainly due to the large number of industries that require clean water for production or cleaning.

  • APAC was the largest market for coagulants and flocculation in 2020, posting sales of $ 4,652.37 million. Additionally, it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.65% during the forecast period.

  • Companies should focus on balanced geographic expansion, where they can focus on emerging markets, where 50% of revenue comes from emerging industry.


  • In the chemical process, different chemicals such as coagulants and flocculants, pH regulators, defoamers, biocides and disinfectants and boiler water chemicals are mainly used for wastewater treatment.

  • In 2020, the chemistry for water treatment was dominated by the coagulants and flocculants segment, which accounted for 36.47%. The advantage of coagulation is that it reduces the time required to settle suspended solids and is effective in removing very fine particles.

  • Chlorine is the most widely used disinfectant, while ozone and UV rays are popular for treating wastewater effluent.

  • Oil based defoamers are the most preferred type of defoamer by the supplier. Oil based defoamers are based on mineral oil, vegetable oil, native oil or white oil to easily dissolve in water.


  • In APAC, the main reason behind the dominant market is the increase in population, rapid industrialization, the penetration of strong agricultural activities, the limited availability of drinking water, and government regulations to control pollution of the land. ‘water.

  • North America and Europe are the mature market for water treatment chemicals.

  • The factors driving the growth of the water treatment industry in Europe are the large consumption of water in industries such as sugar, petrochemicals, textiles, pulp and paper, and food processing. food. In addition, growing concern about the adverse effects of polluted water on the environment, coupled with a growing number of residential and commercial construction projects, is likely to fuel demand.

  • The Middle East has the lowest market share, but demand for water treatment chemicals for oil fields will flourish in the years to come.


  • The main suppliers in the water treatment chemicals and water treatment equipment market are ITT Inc., Solenis, Evonik Industries, Ecolab and Evoqua Water Technologies LLC.

  • Competition in the industry will intensify further due to technological advancements and expansion of product lines. To survive in such a competitive environment, manufacturers must regularly introduce new or improved products and adapt to constantly changing market trends.

  • Over the past decade, numerous mergers and acquisitions have benefited companies by allowing better access to raw materials, production and distribution facilities and R&D capabilities.

  • Companies should invest significantly in R&D activities, which guarantee their success in the food additives industry in the long term. Now, several players are investing heavily in R&D activities.

  • By the end of 2021, Platinum Equity is expected to buy out Solenis, a water treatment company, for $ 5.3 billion.
