Water constitutes an essential part of our day-to-day life and pure water is crucial for the well-being of our community. Water is a universal solvent, but solids, such as clay, fine sand, dust, and rust are not soluble in water, resulting in cloudiness and are technically known as total suspended solids (TSS). Water treatment is carried out to decrease these TSS levels as per the end user requirement, and hence, differ depending on the TSS level, location, and application. The market for the world water treatment chemicals comprises various chemicals used in the water treatment processes. In 2015, the world water treatment chemicals market was valued at $23,197.2 million and is expected to grow further at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2016-2022. 

Increasing consumption of water across the globe, coupled with stringent government regulations on the TSS level of the water, drives the world water treatment chemicals market. In addition, increasing industrial activities and growth in world population drives the world market for the water treatment chemicals. However, factors such as increasing water treatment chemicals prices and presence of alternate treatment technologies is expected to hamper the market growth. 

Based on type of water treatment chemicals, the market is segmented into coagulants, pH adjusters & softeners, flocculants, biocides & disinfectants, scale inhibitors & dispersants, corrosion inhibitors, and others. With technological development in the water treatment industry, usage of treatment equipment has increased, thereby increasing the consumption of corrosion inhibitors across the globe. Hence, in 2015, the corrosion inhibitors segment occupied the highest share of 22.8% in the world water treatment chemicals market.

Based on application, the market is segmented into industrial, municipal, and others. The industrial water treatment application is further sub-segmented into power generation, refineries, pulp & paper, metal & mining, food & beverages, oil & gas, sugar, and others. In 2015, the power generation sub-segment occupied the highest share of 29.3% in the industrial water treatment chemicals market, as large amount of treated water is required to produce electricity. In addition, increasing per capita consumption of power has increased the demand for the electricity across the globe, which in turn increases the demand for water treatment chemicals in the power industry. Municipal water is the key segment for water treatment chemicals as they protect humans from health hazards. 

Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA. In 2015, Asia-Pacific occupied 32.8% in the world water treatment chemicals, with China and India as the major countries contributing the growth. Rapid increase in population coupled with scarcity in pure & clean drinking water are the significant factors responsible for the growth of the water treatment chemicals market in the Asia-Pacific region. 

The companies have employed agreement, acquisition, collaboration, partnership, expansion, and product & technology launch in order to gain competitive advantage in this market. BASF SE has primarily adopted the agreement strategy that helped it to expand its geographic reach and distribute its products in Mexico, Central America, Midwestern United States and Canada. The key players profiled in the report include Kemira Oyj, GE Water & Process Technologies, BASF SE, Ecolab Incorporated, BWA Water Additives, Cortec Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, Buckman Laboratories International Inc., Solvay S.A., and AkzoNobel N.V.
