Based on the type of chemical, the report categorizes the municipal water and wastewater treatment chemicals market in Europe into the following segments:
- Disinfectants and general biocidal products
- Antifoam and defoaming chemicals
- Scale and corrosion inhibitors
- pH conditioners
The top three revenue-generating chemical segments in the municipal water and wastewater treatment chemicals market in Europe are discussed below:
“Flocculants comprise the largest market segment, generating close to 33% of the overall revenue. They are mainly used to promote bond formation between solid particles, making it easier to separate them from the liquid during water treatment,” says Ajay Adikari, a lead analyst at Technavio for specialty chemicals research.
Flocculants can be categorized as anionic, cationic, or neutral based on the charge they carry. Mineral flocculants such as activated silica, metallic hydroxides, and colloidal clays such as bentonite are popularly adopted in this market.
Coagulants are used almost as much as flocculants by the wastewater treatment industry to neutralize the electric charge on the solid particles and colloidal impurities. This enhances the coagulation of suspended solids and helps in reducing the color, turbidity, organic matter, and microorganisms in water systems. The coagulants can be segmented based on their charge, metal base, or salt. This segment of the municipal water and wastewater treatment chemicals market is projected to be worth over USD 1,436 million by 2021, at a constantly increasing growth rate.
Disinfectants and general biocidal products
“Disinfectants and general biocidal products are required during water treatment to maintain a constant control over the microbiological activity, and they aid in the removal of unwanted microorganisms,” says Ajay.
These products can be broadly categorized into oxidizing chemicals, non-oxidizing chemicals, and other types of disinfectants and biocidal products such as hypochlorite, organo-sulfur compounds, and quaternary ammonium salts. All the products have a different mechanism of action ultimately resulting in cell death, thereby making the water microorganism free during the wastewater treatment process.
