Inorganic Coagulants Market: Overview
The market for inorganic coagulants witnessed massive slowdown in its progress as a result of the spread of Covid-19 pandemic across the globe. The level of demand declined to the extreme level due to lockdown creating hurdles for the key players operating in this market. However as recovery commences in 2021, major players are recuperating their positions through production expansion, capacity utilizations and online selling in 2021 keeping in view the covid-19 norms.
Recognized companies such as SNF Floerger, Kemira OYJ, BASF SE, Ecolab Inc., Solenis LLC, Buckman Laboratories, Inc., Feralco AB, Ixom Operations Pty Ltd, Kurita Water Industries Ltd., Suez S.A. and others are focusing on the incorporation of tactics including partnership agreements, sales contracts, strategic alliances, diversifications, innovative launches, mergers & acquisitions, research and developments, technological upliftments, product line extensions, hiring technical expertise, joint ventures, collaborations, product approvals etc for gaining a competitive edge over others in the market.
For instance, in February 2021, SNF announced the partnership with Russia’s Gazprom Neft. This partnership aimed at the development of a new market for Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (CEOR) technologies and products for the Russian oil industry. The CEOR is known to boost production in aging fields. The collaboration will help SNF in production and supplying of polymers for Gazprom Neft projects which employ chemical enhanced oil recovery techniques. In addition to this, the company recently published the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria report for 2020 and is aiming to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. All the products manufactured by SNF contribute immensely to treating, recycling, preserving water, or saving energy and reducing the carbon footprint. The European market is predicted to hold a major share through 2030 owing to the emergence of leading manufacturing companies and new domestic players. Asia Pacific region is projected to show a prominent level of growth because of the application of iron-based coagulants. All the other key regions such as North America, Latin America, Japan, China and MEA are driving the market growth and opening various opportunities for manufacturers.
Global Inorganic Coagulants Market: Introduction
Coagulants are chemicals used for the primary treatment of sludge. They destabilise the particles by neutralising the charge on the particle with charges opposite to those of the suspended solids. Once the charges are destabilised, the particles are capable of sticking together. Coagulants are of two types, namely organic and inorganic. Organic coagulants are plant-based coagulants with high ability to remove pollutants from water. Inorganic coagulants, on the other hand, consist of coagulants based on metals, which are corrosive in nature and thus harmful to the material to which they are applied.
Aluminium-based coagulants are widely used for the treatment of water and wastewater owing to the low price and easily availability of raw materials Aluminium-based coagulants are used extensively across the globe, mainly in Asia pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa, whereas iron-based coagulants are used in Europe and North America.
Global Inorganic Coagulants Market: Dynamics
Over the last few decades, a rapid decline in the number of fresh water resources due to the misuse of water has increased severe water stress across the globe. To avoid and overcome this situation, governments across the globe are implementing stringent regulations regarding the treatment of dischargeable water and increasing its reusability.
Furthermore, governments are highly focused on improving municipal water facilities in urban and rural areas. These developments for industrial and domestic/municipal water treatment are expected to create high demand for water & wastewater treatment chemicals, thereby boosting the consumption of inorganic coagulants over the forecast period.
Global Inorganic Coagulants Market: Regional Outlook
Europe is estimated to hold a significant market share of the iron-based coagulants market during the forecast period, which can be attributed to the high efficiency of iron-based coagulants in the removal of pollutants from water and wastewater. China is estimated to witness prominent growth in the application of iron-based coagulants during the forecast period, which can be attributed to the large presence of manufacturers and distributors of iron-based coagulants in the region.
The U.S. is estimated to shift towards the use of iron-based coagulants from aluminium-based coagulants. Canada and Russia are estimated to continue the trend of using aluminium-based coagulants during the forecast period. Brazil is estimated to witness growth in the application of iron-based coagulants during the forecast period, which can be attributed to growing investments by the government in Brazil for the treatment of water.
