Industrial Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market

Ecolab Inc. (US) and Suez SA (France) are Leading Players in the Industrial Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market

The global Industrial wastewater treatment chemicals market size is estimated to be USD 12.8 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 16.6 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.3% between 2021 and 2026.  The stringent environmental regulations pertaining to emission and treatment of industrial waste and depleting freshwater resources are driving the demand for industrial wastewater treatment chemicals during the forecast period. However, the shifting demand of end-use industries toward the advanced and environment-friendly water treatment technologies is hampering the market growth. On the other hand, growing industrialization resulting from population explosion is expected to leverage new growth opportunities for industrial wastewater treatment chemical manufacturers.

Specialty chemicals are used in this process to remove impurities from wastewater. The industrial sector requires water for cooling, washing, and as process water in the power, oil & gas, petrochemical, chemical, pulp & paper, and petroleum refining industries.
