Global Water and Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market Forecast and Opportunities to 2018

DUBLIN, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Water and Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market Forecast and Opportunities to 2018" report to their offering. 

     (Logo: )

According to, Global Water & Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market Forecast & Opportunities to 2018, the global water and wastewater treatment chemicals market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 4.5% during 2013-18 as a result of growing usage of water in end user industries and stringent water treatment regulations across the globe. 

Shale gas and oil exploration, geothermal energy as well as renewable sources of energy consume considerable amount of water for their operations which is further driving the market. Growing desalination trends in water scarce regions, especially the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, has promoted the growth of membrane chemicals like antiscalants, antifoulants and other cleaning chemicals. Nanotechnology based chemicals and biodegradable chemicals have increased the usage of high performance water treatment chemicals, especially in developed markets of North America and Europe. 

Wastewater from industries such as power, paper and pulp, chemical processing, metal and mining is one of the major contributors to the rising water pollution, globally. As a result, new regulations for maximum limits of pollutants are being passed, globally, depending on the industry and type of pollutant. Consequently, the demand for chemicals utilized in the industrial and municipal wastewater applications is expected to witness long-term increase over the next 10-15 years. In emerging markets, improvements of health and sanitation standards are the major drivers for the growth in water and wastewater treatment chemicals market. Globally, about 2.5 billion people, largely from Asia and Africa, have inadequate water supplies, according to World Bank estimates, which is gradually being addressed with the establishment of water treatment facilities.
