The top three segments of the global WWTC market are discussed below:

Global WWTCs market by coagulants and flocculants

Coagulants and flocculants are used in effluent water treatment processes for solids removal, water clarification, lime softening, sludge thickening, and solid dewatering. Coagulation and flocculation are two processes, which are used to separate these impurities. Coagulation forces the particles to stick together.

According to Hitesh Bhatia, a lead specialty chemicals research analyst from Technavio, “These compounds reduce the operating costs of water treatment process as they are used in the removal of sedimentary and particulate matter in the contaminated water. The coagulants and flocculants segment is expected to grow because of the necessity of potable water, rise in population, and increase in urbanization in developing economies.”

Global WWTCs market by corrosion and scale inhibitors

Scale inhibitors are chemicals, which when added to water reduce and prevent the formation of scales. Corrosion inhibitors are chemicals that help in decreasing the corrosion rates of the substrate, typically an alloy or metal. These are applied mostly to industrial applications such as oil and gas, pulp and paper, power generation, and metal and mining.

“Corrosion prevention and scale removal costs are high for industries such as oil and gas, building construction, manufacturing, and transportation. They can cause damage to the facilities, which consist of heavy and expensive equipment,” says Hitesh.

Global WWTCs market by biocides and disinfectants

Biocides and disinfectants are chemical or physical agents that are capable of destroying most of the exposed microorganisms present in water. Most of the biocides also function as antifouling agents. Biocides and disinfectants are used in formulating a broad range of domestic and industrial products.

The global WWTCs market for biocides and disinfectant is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period due to the growth in industrialization and wastewater treatment sectors. The rising awareness of cleanliness in developed countries such as the US and the increasing demand from emerging countries, especially India, China, and Brazil, have contributed to the rapid market growth for biocides and disinfectants.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Akzo Nobel
  • Arkema
  • GE Water and Process Technologies
  • Kemira
  • Kurita Water Industries
