Africa Water Treatment Chemicals (Raw Water Treatment, RO, UF & NF Membrane Treatment) Market Analysis Report 2022: A $1.54 Billion Market by 2030 Featuring Buckman, Ecolab, Kemira, BASF, and Solenis -

DUBLIN--()--The "Africa Water Treatment Chemicals Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Application (Raw Water Treatment, RO, UF & NF Membrane Treatment), by End Use, by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2022-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The Africa water treatment chemicals market size is expected to reach USD 1.54 billion by 2030 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2022 to 2030

The industry growth is majorly driven by the recycling of effluent, the growth of central treatment units for SMEs, and advanced biological wastewater treatment technology.

The market has been segmented based on three parameters which are application, end-use, and region. The application section includes applications in raw water treatment, RO, UF, and NF Membrane treatment, Open & Closed Cooling Systems treatment, and Boilers among others. End-users include chemical manufacturing, food & beverages, mining & mineral processing, paper & pulp, and municipal among others.

The most widely used products in this country comprise corrosion inhibitors, coagulants & flocculants, and biocides among others. The product market is driven by increasing concerns regarding the availability of safe drinking water and the implementation of high-quality standards for several industrial applications.

Sodium hydroxide, chlorine dioxide, ozone, aluminum, iron, and other chemicals are the key raw materials used in the manufacturing of the product. Sodium hydroxide is used in water treatment applications to raise the pH value of drinking water to a level that minimizes corrosion. It controls the corrosion of metals such as lead from pipes into the drinking water. Chlorine dioxide is used in these applications owing to its effectiveness as an oxidant, disinfectant, and biocide.

This country is considered to be among one of the least industrialized regions in the world. But with a growing population and increasing FDI, the region's healthy economies such as South Africa, Nigeria, and other countries are believed to witness growing industrial development which in turn will increase the demand for the product.

The consumption and production of the products in this country are majorly influenced by the demand from different end-use industries. Hence, any fluctuation in demand for these chemicals from end-use industries is anticipated to directly impact the growth of the products in the region.

The spread of COVID-19 led to the shutting down of vital end-use industries, including chemicals, oil & gas, power, etc. in the country in 2020. This impacted the growth of the regional market.
