Membrane Water Treatment Chemicals Market Segment Analysis – By Chemical Type

The pre-treatment segment held the largest share in the membrane water treatment chemicals market in the year 2020. Pre-treatment is performed on the feed water to improve the lifetime and efficiency of the membranes before allowing them to join the membrane system. Flocculants, coagulants, and others are the main chemicals used in the pre-treatment process. The negative electrical charge present on the harmful colloidal particles is neutralized by coagulants and the forces holding colloids apart are destabilized. Water treatment coagulants consist of positively charged molecules that achieve charge neutralization when applied to the polluted water and combined. The coagulants neutralize the charge on colloidal particles responsible for holding them apart. Additionally, flocculants are compounds that facilitate the clumping of destabilized particles obtained during coagulant treatment. Moreover, demand for reverse osmosis (RO) membrane technology water systems in the treatment of household water for drinking purposes has been driven by growing health concerns about freshwater use. This raises the use of pre-treatment chemicals, thereby increasing the demand for chemicals for water treatment over the forecast period.

Membrane Water Treatment Chemicals Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Food and Beverage Processing segment has dominated the market for membrane water treatment chemicals market in the year 2020 and is estimated to rise at a CAGR of 6.9% during 2021-2026. For the food & beverage industry, it is important that hygiene requirements set by the federal agencies involved are upheld at all times so that the goods are safe for consumption. Chemical treatments are routinely used in boiler water to ensure the prevention of problems due to corrosion, fouling, and scaling. In the treatment system, volatile corrosion inhibitors, antiscalants, and cleaning chemicals are applied so that, along with the water, the solvent is transferred to the tubes to protect against corrosion, scaling, and fouling. The quality of the water used in the plant is important, and chemical treatments are therefore carried out to ensure compliance with existing health standards. This, in fact, is driving the market for chemicals to treat water. Therefore, for the above reasons, during the forecast period, the food & beverage industry is projected to be the fastest-growing end-user industry.

Membrane Water Treatment Chemicals Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia-Pacific region dominated the membrane water treatment chemicals market share with more than 32.7% in 2020. China also has a booming industry in the production of textiles and minerals, which is expected to fuel demand growth. In India, owing to different government initiatives, water purification is expected to show a strong increase during the forecast period. For instance, together with the 2030 Water Resources Community, the Council on Energy, Environment, and Water (CEEW) aims to strengthen wastewater management in India, along with growing private investment in the construction of wastewater treatment plants. With such investments the demand for membrane water treatment chemicals market in the Asia-Pacific region is estimated to rise in the forecast period. Moreover, there are approximately 131 seawater desalination plants in China, according to the State Oceanic Administration (SOA), providing 66.6% of the desalinated water for industrial purposes and the rest for residential use. Thus, the increasing demand for clean water supply in the Asia-Pacific countries is further estimated to drive the membrane water treatment chemicals market growth.

Membrane Water Treatment Chemicals Market Drivers

Increasing Demand for Membrane Water Treatment Chemicals

The growth of the membrane water treatment chemicals are mainly driven by growing desalination, concern for waterborne diseases, and strict government regulations to regulate wastewater disposal. Rising need to harness fresh water from the abundantly available saline water in many countries has also driven the growth of the membrane water treatment chemicals. Furthermore, the rising acceptance of membrane technology such as microfiltration, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and forward osmosis, in membrane water treatment systems in developing countries would further drive the growth of the industry. Also, an increase in demand from the manufacturing sectors along with increased wastewater rehabilitation activities are the key factors that are expected to fuel the growth in the membrane water treatment chemicals market in the near future.

Increasing Demand from Municipal industry

One of the key sources of pollution of water bodies, such as lakes and rivers, is the accumulation of nitrogen and phosphorus compounds through the discharge of wastewater. For this purpose, different countries are introducing membrane water treatment chemicals for the treatment of urban wastewater. Membrane water treatment chemicals have recently welcomed growing practical research interests for municipal applications on a larger scale. Its implementation has undergone different degrees of modification and development. In addition, because the carrier used in membrane water treatment chemicals plays a crucial role in the overall efficiency, the membrane water treatment chemicals performance could be improved by selecting the most effective carrier. Also, the rising adoption of membrane crystallization (MCr) technology to extract simultaneously fresh water in the municipal industry would drive the demand for membrane water treatment chemicals. As this is modern technology, this technology is being used by the developing regions to replace old technologies used in wastewater treatment plans. Also, in developed countries, the successful adoption of this technology is also responsible for the growth of membrane water treatment chemicals in the municipal industry.

Membrane Water Treatment Chemicals Market Challenges

Lack of Awareness and Inadequate Training

The lack of knowledge about the membrane water treatment chemicals is a factor that is expected to curb the growth of the global membrane water treatment chemicals industry. Since only a few people have been fully trained in today's high-tech water treatment methods it is the most serious issue in the membrane water treatment chemicals sector. A few water treatment personnel should also have advanced knowledge and abilities, allowing them to troubleshoot the most prevalent upsets that may occur, at the discretion of each facility. Scaling, fouling, chemical attack, o-ring leaks, mechanical failures, and instrumentation failures are the most typical upsets. Also, a biological process is used in the membrane water treatment chemicals, so it requires a high-quality operator to track the process. The failure of any mechanical component contributes to the plant's overall shutdown. Thus, the lack of awareness and inadequate training will create hurdles for the growth of the global membrane water treatment chemicals market in the forecast period.

Membrane Water Treatment Chemicals Market Landscape

Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the membrane water treatment chemicals market. Major players in the membrane water treatment chemicals market are Veolia, SOLENIS, SUEZ, Kurita Water Industries Ltd, GE Water Technologies Inc., Genesys International Corporation Ltd., Hydrite Chemical Co., Ecolab, Inc., Alkema Solutions, and Evoqua Water Technologies LLC, and among others.

Acquisitions/Product Launches:

In February 2021, H2O Innovation Inc. acquired the remaining 76% of Genesys Membrane Products SL's (GMP) issued and outstanding shares. GMP's acquisition is viewed as the company’s next natural step toward the aim of being the world's leading membrane specialty chemicals and related services supplier with a wide distribution network.
