    Market Highlights

    Water Treatment is a process that is used to improve the water quality, making it appropriate for various purposes such as drinking and industrial applications. Treating water means removing its contaminations or at least reduce its concentration to make it usable. Numerous varieties of chemicals are used for this purpose. Water treatment has a wide range of applications in wastewater, industrial water, and portable water. Its market in North America and Asia pacific is already well established attributed to increased awareness regarding the quality of water. Also, both regions are among the prominent users of industrial chemicals.

    The water treatment chemicals market logged a colossal decline of more than -14% in 2020. The market was hit adversely by the pandemic majorly because of a decline in the tourism industry in the wake of complete restrictions on traveling. Furthermore, various industries, such as petrochemical, had cut their production during the lockdown period, aggravating the overall demand. However, the industry stakeholders are expecting healthy market recoveries in the near years, assisting them to quickly resuscitate the market losses during the pandemic. In the long term, the market for water treatment chemicals is subjected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 6.0% over the next five years to reach US$ 35 billion by 2026.
