Polyacrylamide is a polymer, which is formed by the synthesis of acrylamide subunits. This is widely used in water treatment and papermaking. Polyacrylamide plays a vital role in the wastewater management. Therefore, the rising environmental concerns for the water management increase the usage of polyacrylamide. Coagulants and flocculants are the organic polymers, which help in the solids/liquid separation of suspended particles in solution during the water management. In this case, the ionic polyacrylamide is used as coagulant aid to improve the coagulation-flocculation process. In addition, the polymer is used as friction reducer in the pad drilling technique, which is used in the production of Shale gas. Moreover, the growth of mining industry also drives the polyacrylamide market, as it is used for the separation of mineral and ores in mines.

Due to its negative impact on health and environment, many government/environmental authorities imposed certain regulations on its usage, which restraints its market growth. In addition to this, the volatility of its raw material price prevents the manufacturers from bulk production. Apart from above facts, these days some global manufactures of polyacrylamide has started developing and commercializing the bio-based acrylamide, as a new opportunity of this market. 
Product market analysis

On the basis of product, the market is segmented into non-ionic, cationic, anionic and other polymers. Due to high molecular weight, the cationic polyacrylamide is widely used in the wastewater treatment application. 

Application market analysis

On the basis of applications, the market is segmented into water treatment, petroleum, paper making and other chemical and bio-medical industries. Polyacrylamide is used as retention aids in the manufacturing of paper and paperboard.

Geography market analysis

On the basis of geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and rest of the world. As the scope of its application, industries such as petroleum, mining and oilfields are more in the Asia Pacific region. Therefore, polyacrylamide is largely used in this region.
