Kemira OYJ (Finland) and BASF SE (Germany) are the Key Players in the Water Clarifiers Market


Water clarifiers are chemical compounds that can be of metallic, organic, or non-organic nature used in the water treatment process to remove impurities from water and stabilize the pH. Water clarifiers can be broadly classified into flocculants, coagulants, and pH stabilizers. Coagulants are used to destabilize suspended particles through a chemical reaction, and flocculants are responsible for the transportation of the destabilized particles that cause collisions. pH adjusters are required in water treatment applications to stabilize the acidic or basic content.

Water clarifiers are used in both municipal and industrial water treatment applications. The global water clarifiers market is projected to reach USD 7.43 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.6% between 2017 and 2022. Declining freshwater resources coupled with stringent regulatory and sustainable mandates concerning the environment are key factors driving the water clarifiers market. However, the growing demand for alternative water treatment technologies, including UV disinfection and RO filtration is inhibiting the market growth.

Key companies profiled in this report are SNF Floerger (France), Kemira OYJ (Finland), BASF SE (Germany), Ecolab Inc. (US), Solenis LLC (US), Buckman Laboratories, Inc. (US), Feralco AB (Sweden), Suez S.A. (France), Ixom Operations Pty Ltd. (Australia), and Kurita Water Industries Ltd. (Japan). Rapid urbanization and increasing population in emerging regions have encouraged companies to adopt several business strategies to stay competitive in the global water clarifiers market between 2013 and 2017. Therefore, leading companies have adopted new product launches, expansions, acquisitions, and agreement as their key growth strategies in the global water clarifiers market.

Kemira OYJ (Finland), one of the largest manufacturers of water clarifiers in the world, adopted new product launches as its key strategy. Moreover, the company offers a broad product portfolio of coagulants and flocculants to numerous end-use industries, such as petrochemicals, metals & mining, and municipal water treatment. The company’s coagulant product line includes a wide range of organic and inorganic coagulants and offers both, dry and emulsion flocculants. Additionally, Kemira has a strong manufacturing and customer base worldwide. For instance, in April 2017, the company launched a high-performance cationic flocculant named Kemira Superfloc XD-7600 especially engineered for sludge dewatering applications. The product can enhance the sludge handling efficiency, and minimize storage and transportation cost.

BASF SE (Germany) has considered expansion as its key strategy to stay competitive in the global water clarifiers market. Its in-depth product portfolio and strong geographic presence are biggest strengths of BASF’s core competency. BASF is the third-largest manufacturer of flocculants, globally, and offers products under its popular brands, namely, Alclar, Magnafloc, Organopol, Organosorb, Rheomax, and Zetag. Similarly, the company also has a decent product offering of inorganic coagulants under the brand name, Magnafloc and Magnasol. The company has a broad product portfolio of flocculants and coagulants for both, industrial water treatment and process, and municipal water treatment application. The company serves industries, such as pulp & paper, mining, and others. For instance, in April 2016, the company opened a bio-acrylamide (BioACM) production plant in Bradford, UK. This facility will strengthen the company’s polyacrylamides production footprint worldwide.
