In-depth Analysis and Data-driven Insights on the Impact of COVID-19 Included in this Global Water Treatment Chemical Market Report. Water treatment chemical market size to witness USD 38119.

New York, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Water Treatment Chemicals Market - Global Outlook & Forecast 2021-2026" -
46 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of over 3.95% during forecast period


Earlier, efforts to control water pollution prevented human waste from reaching water bodies as population control was in the local authority’s hands, 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 waste present in the water. Primarily there are three ways of treating wastewater, namely primary, chemical, and biological processes.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the water treatment chemical market during the forecast period:

• Growing middle class population
• Growing concern of water borne disease
• Increasing water recycling & reuse
• Rapid industrialization in emerging economies
• Increasing use of water treatment equipment


• In 2020, the global water treatment chemicals market was valued at USD 30,218.00 million. The COVID-19 outbreak adversely impacted the water treatment chemicals segment.
• The alternative water treatment technologies are a major hindrance in the water treatment chemical market.
• The industrial segment accounts for the highest in the water treatment chemicals market share in terms of revenue. This is majorly due to the huge number of industries that need clean water either for production or cleaning.
• The APAC was the largest market for coagulant & flocculation in 2020, posting revenue of USD 4,652.37 million. Further, it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.65% during the forecast period.
• Companies should focus on balanced geographical expansion, where they can focus on emerging markets, where 50% of the revenue comes from the emerging industry.

The study considers the present scenario of the water treatment chemical market and its market dynamics for the period 2021?2026. It covers a detailed overview of several market growth enablers, restraints, and trends.
The study offers both the demand and supply aspects of the market. It profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent companies operating in the market.

• In the chemical process, different chemicals such as coagulant & flocculant, pH adjusters, defoamers, biocides & disinfectants, and boiler water chemicals are majorly used for wastewater treatment.
• In 2020, the chemical for water treatment was dominated by the coagulant & flocculant segment, which accounted for 36.47%. The advantage of coagulation is that it reduces the time required to settle out suspended solids and is effective in removing very fine particles.
• Chlorine is the most widely used disinfectant, whereas ozone and UV radiation are popular for wastewater effluent treatment.
• Oil-based defoamers are the most preferred type of defoamers by the supplier. The oil-based defoamers are based on either mineral oil, vegetable oil, native oil, or white oil to dissolve in water easily.

• Segmentation by Chemical type
