GCC Industrial Water and Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market - Key Products and Initiatives Driving Growth in the Region

DUBLIN, January 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "GCC Industrial Water and Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market - Key Products and Initiatives Driving Growth in the Region" report to their offering. 

     (Logo: )

This study investigates the market for water and wastewater treatment chemicals in the GCC countries, identifying the key chemical types and the end-user industries for the same. It examines the revenue and volume shipment for the six countries across each water treatment chemical type and across each end-user industry, providing a detailed outlook, along with the market size, revenue forecast until 2017 as well as market drivers and restraints. The total market's competitive structure in terms of companies and their presence is also included. This study is significant considering the shortage in water resources in the GCC and initiatives of local governments to conserve and reuse water towards building a sustainable future. 

Market Overview - Definitions and Scope of Study 

This research service presents current and future trends of the GCC industrial water and wastewater treatment chemicals market from 2011 to 2017, with 2012 as the base year.

The study focuses on the following most commonly used, specific groups of industrial water and wastewater treatment chemicals: 

  • pH conditioners
  • Coagulants
  • Flocculants
  • Corrosion and Scale Inhibitors
  • Biocides and Disinfectants
  • Other types of chemicals (*Other types include softeners, antifoaming, defoaming, colour control, and odour control)

In the GCC countries, there are limited applications for water treatment chemicals besides for caustic soda, sulphuric acid, and hydrochloric acid, which are extensively used in the oil and gas, petrochemicals, and chemical industries.

The types of water to be treated can be classified as follows: 

  • Raw water
  • Process water
  • Effluent water

Primary treatment of raw water, as it is commonly known, is carried out to remove organic and inorganic solids, impurities like dirt and other suspended particles, and oxides of metal and colloidal substances. 

This process is a combination of both physical and chemical methods. This is done to ensure that the quality of the water obtained from places like municipalities and fresh water sources are up to required standards. 

Process water treatment, or cooling water treatment, refers to the water that is used in the internal and external circuits of various process systems such as cooling and heating. 

There is a significant change in the temperature, pressure, and pH level of the water that is used for process water treatment. 

Scaling and corrosion are very common in these process loops because of the corrosive reaction between water and metal surfaces repeatedly. 

Biocides, corrosion and scale inhibitors, and certain inorganic commodity chemicals are most commonly used to treat water used during this phase. 

Effluent water treatment is carried out to ensure that the water released from the industries to the environment does not contain heavy metals, metal oxides, and other impurities which can be harmful. 

Processing also takes place to prepare the water for reuse. Coagulants, flocculants, and activated carbon are chemicals most frequently used.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
