Rheology Modifiers For Industrial Cleaners Market Overview
Rheology Modifiers For Industrial Cleaners Market size is forecast to reach US$408.7 million by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2021-2026. Rheology modifiers are vital additives that are added to liquid and semi-solid products to control the viscosity and flow characteristics of the products. The rheology of products used for industrial cleaning has to be adjusted to fit the needs of each application, owing to which there is an increasing demand for rheology modifiers to adjust the rheology of formulations used in industrial cleaners. Although traditional cleaners provide good performance, natural rheology modifiers have become an integral ingredient in the processing of today’s most innovative and naturally-based industrial cleaners, as they enable improved sensory experiences and performance in an array of formulations, which is expected to drive the rheology modifiers for industrial cleaner’s industry market growth during the forecast period.
One of the hardest-hit segments from COVID-19 was the manufacturing sector. The factories that supply raw materials to several manufacturing units across the world were shut down to curb the spread of the virus. Thus, consecutively the coronavirus impact on manufacturing also had implications on production, demand, and supply chains of synthetic and natural rheology modifiers, owing to which there was a decline in the synthetic and natural rheology modifiers’ revenue in 2020, which constrained the market growth. Furthermore, due to widespread of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) in 2020, the global production and supply chain of natural and synthetic rheology modifiers For industrial cleaners was disrupted. The COVID-19 pandemic hindered the transportation links and distribution mechanisms between suppliers, production facilities, and customers. Therefore, the sustainable production and consumption pattern of natural and synthetic rheology modifiers for the industrial cleaners market was affected in 2020.

China's State Council also approved the construction of the two units which is yet to start in the upcoming years. Similarly, Shandong Shengli Coal-Fired Power Project in China can produce 4000 megawatts (MW) of energy. Its first phase was planned to be completed in 2019. In April 2020, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. announced that it will establish a new plant within Osaka, Japan. In December 2020, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. announced that along with IBM Japan through a joint venture it plans to build a new solar power generation plant. Thus, such rising investments for the production of new petrochemical plants are estimated to raise the demand for rheology modifiers For industrial cleaners.
Rheology Modifiers For Industrial Cleaners Market – Drivers
The Surge in the Food & Beverages Processing Facilities
Industrial cleaners based on rheological modifiers are effective in removing trace ingredients to help prevent allergen cross-contact, reduce the chances of food contamination that can cause health hazards or affect product quality, comply with local and international standards and regulations to ensure consumer safety, and avoid legal issues, and increase plant performance and productivity by reducing the amount of water used. And since keeping the food and beverage processing plants clean is of primary importance for smoothly run operations as it ensures a safe and efficient manufacturing environment, there is an increasing demand for industrial cleaners from the food and beverage processing facilities. The construction and functioning of new food and beverage processing facilities are increasing at a lucrative rate. For instance, in November 2018, Maple Leaf Foods started building a value-added fresh poultry plant in Ontario. The Canada-based company expects the construction of a facility to be completed in 2022.In June 2018, Parle, one of India's leading biscuit and confectionery manufacturers, opened a manufacturing facility in Mexico. In addition, in December 2018, Nestlé invested US$154 million in a new coffee factory in Veracruz, Mexico. Furthermore, in May 2019, PepsiCo announced to invest US$109 million in Mexico to build a new plant in Guanajuato. The plant will be fully operational by 2025. In August 2020, the British government has agreed to contribute £12 million (US$15.4 million) to help Derby establish a high-tech food manufacturing campus. The project is expected to be completed by 2024. Thus, it is evident that with the increasing food processing industry, the need for rheological modifier-based industrial cleaners is also increasing at a rapid pace to frequently clean the surfaces of the food and beverages industry, which is driving the rheological modifier market growth during the forecast period.
Increasing Investments in Pipeline Projects
Time, degradation, and corrosion of the world's aging pipeline infrastructure raise the risk of pipeline failure. Rheology modifiers For industrial cleaners provide a barrier to internal pipeline corrosion, ensuring the integrity of chemical, water, and oil and gas water pipelines. Rheology modifiers For industrial cleaners have several advantages, including improved pipeline life, product purity, cost savings, and more. As a result, they are often used in pipelines. The Indian government aims to create natural gas infrastructure in India with an investment of US$60 billion through 2024 which includes laying gas pipelines and LNG terminals. India plans to extend its natural gas grid to 34,500 kilometers by adding a 17,000-kilometer gas pipeline. The European Council proposed in April 2018 to construct a 159-kilometer bidirectional pipeline from Malta to Italy, bringing Malta into compliance with a European Union (EU) condition that "no EU Member State should remain disconnected from the European gas and electricity networks after 2015." Malta decided in July 2019 to finance the entire project's estimated cost of €400 million (US$440 million), which is set to be completed in 2024. The project has been approved by the European Commission's Projects of Common Interest (PCI) list, as well as the Italian government's 10-year natural gas development plan for 2020-2029. Thus, it is anticipated that the increasing pipeline projects will accelerate the growth of the rheology modifiers For industrial cleaners in the future. Thus, the increased pipeline projects act as an opportunity for the rheology modifiers for the industrial cleaners market during the forecast period.
Rheology Modifiers For Industrial Cleaners Market – Challenges
Fluctuating Crude Oil Prices
The cost of commodity chemicals and the amount of raw materials used during the production process is always influenced by fluctuating crude oil prices. Crude oil is considered is the main raw material for the synthesis of rheology modifiers since it is used to manufacture distinct raw materials. The raw materials often used for the production of rheology modifiers are the downstream products of crude oil such as polyamides and polyester. So, the price fluctuation of crude oils also hinders the price of rheology modifiers. According to, BP Statistical Review of World Energy, in the recent year there is been a fluctuation in the price of crude oil, for instance, the Brent crude oil price decreased from US$98.95/bbl in 2014 to US$52.39/bbl in 2015 and increased from US$43.73/bbl in 2016 to US$71.31/bbl in 2018 and then decreased to US$64.21/bbl in 2019. And because of this uncertainty in crude oil prices, the price of rheology modifiers also increases. Thus, the volatility in crude oil prices is expected to be a significant challenge for the rheology modifiers market manufacturers, which will hinder the rheology modifiers market growth during the forecast period.
