Liquid pH Water Disinfectant Market Segment Analysis – By Chlorine Type

Chlorine gas segment held the largest share of 38% in the Liquid pH water disinfectant market in the year 2020. Chlorine gas is a compressed liquid that is commonly amber in color. Chlorine gas is also the least expensive type of chlorine, which makes it affordable and the commonly used type of chlorine in the liquid pH water disinfectant market. Chlorine gas turns into hypochlorous acid (HOCI) which further disassociates into hypochlorite ions and hydrogen ions. This helps in deep cleaning and sterilization of the water. Chlorine gas is highly effective in killing pathogens such as virus, bacteria, fungi and parasites. This helps in water softening and increasing the quality of the water. Therefore, this is highly driving the demand for chlorine gas in the liquid pH water disinfectant market.

Liquid pH Water Disinfectant Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Disinfection segment held the largest share of 40% in the Liquid pH water disinfectant market in the year 2020. The increasing awareness about the various diseases and ailments caused by contaminated water is one of the major factors driving the need and demand for disinfecting and sterilization of water bodies. UNICEF initiated a program called WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene), where it aims to increase access to water supply across the globe and meet their goal of sustainable water goal by the year 2030. Furthermore, during the year 2019, UNICEF constructed and rehabilitated over 1000 solar powered water systems to address the growing water scarcity. UNICEF made a progress during the year 2020 by achieving 92% of the targeted water scarcity problem across the globe. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are various set of rules and regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for removal of contamination in water. One of the significant methods used in sterilization and decontamination of water bodies are disinfection process, where chlorine and chloramine is used in killing parasites, bacteria and viruses to protect the water from germs when it is piped to homes and businesses. This is one of the major factors driving the disinfection segment in the liquid pH water disinfectant market. 

Liquid pH Water Disinfectant Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Municipal segment held the largest share of 43% in the Liquid pH water disinfectant market in the year 2020. The increase in need for cleaning water bodies for water purification to provide safe and healthy drinking water to the city/country is one of the significant factors driving the demand for liquid pH water disinfectant in the municipal segment. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set standards that takes into consideration a number of 90 different contaminants which needs to be cleared before it is used as a drinking water. The municipal has a huge responsibility of making sure the water is totally contaminant free before it is released to the public. This is one of the major factors that is increasing the demand for liquid pH water disinfectant market in the municipal corporation segment for water purification and water softening.

Liquid pH Water Disinfectant Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia-Pacific region held the largest share of 42% in the Liquid pH water disinfectant market in the year 2020. The rapid growth in the population in countries like India, China and South Korea coupled with the increase in need for safe drinking water for the mass is one of the major factors driving the liquid pH water disinfectant market in the Asia Pacific region. The Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, of India introduced a scheme called SWAJAL under the National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP) budget. This scheme aims at providing quality and safe drinking water to around 115 rural districts in India. Furthermore, during the year 2019, the South Korean government came up with National Water Management Committee and Watershed Management Committee for mitigating water disaster in the country. This committee focused on cleaning water bodies and providing safe water for its citizen. According to Japan International Cooperation Agency, the United Nations initiated a schemed called goal 6 SDGs (Sustainable Development goals) which aims at water purification by eradicating water contamination and provide safe drinking water by the end of the year 2030. The increase in number of government initiatives and regulations in the countries in Asia Pacific region is one of the major factors driving the demand for liquid pH water disinfectant market in the region.

Liquid pH Water Disinfectant Market Drivers
