Global ion-exchange resins market for power segment

In the power end-user segment, ion-exchange resins are widely used in various processes such as demineralization, condensate polishing, and treatment of radioactive waste in the nuclear power plants. These resins are crucial in nuclear power sector due to the benefits such as effective removal of radioactive waste from nuclear plants and minimizing waste discharge through feed water.

According to Mahitha Mallishetty, a lead metals and minerals research analyst from Technavio, “The increasing need for electricity from developing countries due to population growth and rapid urbanization has triggered the demand for power generation from nuclear plants. The share of nuclear energy in the global gross commercial electricity generation sector has been stable in recent years, accounting for almost 11% in 2015.”

Global ion-exchange resins market for water treatment segment

The scarcity of potable water and rising awareness regarding health have increased the acceptance of water purification systems, which require ion-exchange resins. These resins are extensively used for treating water in industries owing to the factors such as energy efficiency and lower cost when compared with other conventional physical and chemical water treatment applications.

These resins are also widely used for treating municipal water in developing countries of APAC and ROW. In recent years, ion-exchange resins are also gaining prominence in household water purifiers; these resins are being used in cartridges, thereby increasing their demand,” says Mahitha.

Global ion-exchange resins market for chemical segment

In the chemical industry, ion-exchange resins are used as a catalyst, for separation of metals, brine purification or decalcification, and for the production and purification of chemical compounds, including caprolactam. Furthermore, these resins are used in the purification of biodiesel and for the production of high-purity water.

The notable growth in the chemicals and related end-user industries in the developing regions, including APAC, is providing notable prospects for the market growth in the segment. Also, the growing global petrochemicals industry in MEA is also expected to foster the market growth during the forecast period.
