Water Treatment Chemicals Market by Type (Coagulants & Flocculants, Corrosion Inhibitors, Scale Inhibitors, Biocides & Disinfectants, Chelating Agents), End-Use (Residential, Commercial, Industrial), and Region

The global water treatment chemicals market size is projected to grow from USD 39.1 billion in 2021 to USD 61.1 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 9.3% between 2021 and 2026. 

Europe and North America are the two most established markets for water treatment chemicals, worldwide. However, recently, the growth has come from the emerging/developing economies in the Asia Pacific region (China and India). This was primarily due to the increasing population and the increasing demand for clean, fresh water for agricultural and industrial purposes and rapid industrialization. China is the largest water treatment chemicals market in APAC, representing more than 20% of the global water treatment chemicals market, in 2019. With almost 20% of the global population and only 6% of the global freshwater resources, the water sector of China is a high priority area in the 14th Five Year Plan for Ecological & Environmental Protection (2020-2025). The urbanization and the rising environmental concerns further improve the scope for the use of WTCs in wastewater treatment. As a part of the 14th Five Year Plan, the government of China proposed the establishment of a unit-based management for water resource quality, strategies to tackle pollution, policies for the protection of water bodies, rules for the improvement of urban water bodies, and the overall improvement in water quality.

India has potential in the field of water treatment. It has 16% of the global population and only 4% of freshwater resources. The total utilizable water resource in the country is 1,123 billion cubic meters (BCM). By 2025, the demand for domestic and industrial use may increase up to 29.2 BCM. Moreover, industries such as food processing, textile, and auto components are growing at a rapid rate in the country. Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Colombia in South America are also the key markets for water treatment chemicals with their growing water treatment infrastructure investments.
