Water Treatment Chemicals (Coagulants & Flocculants, Corrosion Inhibitor, Scale Inhibitors, Biocides, Chelating Agents, Anti-foaming Agents, pH Adjusters) Market - Global Forecast to 2018

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - Aug. 13, 2014) - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Water Treatment Chemicals Market, 2018: Coagulants & Flocculants, Corrosion Inhibitor, Scale Inhibitors, Biocides, Chelating Agents, Anti-foaming Agents, pH Adjusters & Others" report to their offering.

Water treatment chemicals are primarily used for removing impurities from drinking as well as industrial water and wastewater. With the increasing scarcity of water resources globally, recycling and reuse of water has become very important. Water treatment chemicals are used effectively to remove harmful substances from water.

Key chemicals that are used in the water treatment include corrosion inhibitors, scale inhibitors, coagulants & flocculants, biocides & disinfectants, chelating agents, anti-foaming agents, ph adjusters & stabilizers, and others. Coagulants & flocculants are the most commonly used water treatment chemicals. However, scale and corrosion inhibitors together represent the significant market share in terms of value. Biocides and disinfectants also represent more than 10% of the value market, and are expected to grow at a decent pace. However, increasing regulations against the use of chemicals in water treatment is one of the key restraints in the industry.

Water treatment chemicals are used in industries such as power generation, food & beverage, chemical processing, pulp & paper, oil & gas, metal & mining, and others. Power generation is the important industrial application area for water treatment chemicals. Municipal water treatment represents around 35% of the total consumption of water treatment chemicals globally.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific is the key market for water treatment chemicals. It represents more than 35% of the market in terms of consumption. Rising demand for clean water in China and India is driving the Asia-Pacific as well as the global market for water treatment chemicals. China is the largest consumer for water treatment chemicals in the world.
