    What are water soluble polymers?

    Water-soluble polymers tend to dissolve in water and are defined as having an adequate number of electronegative atoms and/or functional groups that can form hydrogen bonds with water. Water-soluble polymers have the capacity to swell or change shape in solution, increase the viscosity of solvents at low concentrations, and adsorb at surfaces. 

    Market Dynamics

    Growing application of the product for drilling, improved oil recovery, mining, wastewater treatment, and food, and increasing demand for water soluble polymers as stabilizers, thickeners, film formers, emulsifiers, rheology modifiers, lubricity aids, and conditioners will boost industry growth over the forecast period.

    Covid-19 Impact

    Water soluble polymer, a sizeable market, witnessed a colossal decline amid the pandemic. However, the industry gradually started to rebound from the year 2021 with the recovery in end-use industries. The COVID-19 pandemic's effect on the market growth of end-use industries and disruptions in their supply chain, along with stringent government regulations on polymer consumption, are anticipated to restrain the market's expansion.
