Market Definition: Global Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market

Wastewater treatment chemicals are those compounds or substances that are used to purify or remove the polluted substances from the water bodies disposed of after they’ve been utilized in several industrial verticals. These chemicals alone cannot purify the water bodies/resources they are required to be used through certain methods in equipments and machinery designed for water purification.

Market Drivers:

  • Growing decline in the water resources globally amid a significant rise in the demand for water is expected to drive the growth of the market
  • Rising levels of industrialization and urbanization resulting in increased demand for water treatment services because of the significant pollution in the water bodies; this factor is expected to drive the growth of the market
  • Presence of regulations imposed by the governments of various authorities regarding purification and reuse of water bodies; this factor is expected to drive the growth of the market

Market Restraints:

  • Requirement of large costs for the treatment of significant amounts of water quantities disposed from the various end-use industries; this factor is expected to restrain the growth of the market
  • Requirement of large-scale maintenance and human resources for the utilization and effective operation of these chemicals; this factor is expected to restrain the growth of the market
