In terms of value, the global sludge treatment chemicals market stood at US$ 6,580.0 Mn in 2015, which is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.8% over the forecast period, to reach US$ 10,944 Mn by the end of 2026.
Increasing number of industries and sludge treatment plants at municipal level is boosting the demand in the global sludge treatment chemicals market
Increasing efforts towards water conservation activities by industrial bodies, municipal corporations and environmental associations is driving the demand in the global sludge treatment chemicals market. The increasing number of industries globally and sludge treatment plants at municipal level is further expected to drive the global sludge treatment chemicals market.
One of the major trends in the global sludge treatment chemicals market is the introduction of multifunctional chemicals like copolymers of AETAC (N,N-Dimethylaminoethyl Acrylate Methyl Chloride Quaternary) that can perform dual functions by both coagulating with positive charge and flocculating with high molecular weight. Similarly, Kurita Water Industries launched a multifunctional polymer which could perform dual functions of anti-scaling and dispersion.
The non-chemicals method like filters and membranes are growing at a faster rate than the use of chemicals especially for municipal sludge treatment plants as this technology is more hygienic and creates less pollution. The use of membrane bioreactor can eliminate the cost for tertiary treatment. In addition, increased awareness and concern towards climate change and more sustainable products may change demand towards water treatment technologies with lower chemical consumption, and this may have a negative impact on the global sludge treatment chemicals market.
Besides, high operational costs of sludge treatment plants with a major cost comprising of the cost of chemicals may also act as a restraint in the global sludge treatment chemicals market.
