Global Water Treatment Additives Market was valued at USD 39.2 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at USD 61.2 billion by 2027 recording a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period 2021-2027. The major factors driving the growth of water treatment additives are depleting water resources demand for clean water, government policies, increasing population, environmental conditions, rapid industrialization and others. However, requirement of huge area and its time consuming nature will hamper the growth of the water additives market. Water treatment is the process of converting contaminated water into drinkable, industrial, or therapeutic water. Water pollutants are removed from the water with the application of additives. Pollution from industrial activity encourages the establishment of bacterial contamination and algal blooms, resulting in low dissolved oxygen density. Water treatment with additions like polyethylene glycol activated carbon and certain surfactants improves contaminated water treatment. Because freshwater is in short supply, there is a high demand for wastewater treatment. The efficacy of water treatment additions is determined by the rate of dosage and the length of time the additive is present in the water. The market for water treatment additives has been categorised by type of additive, type of water, application range, and geography. The market is divided into corrosion inhibitors, oxygen scavengers, scale inhibitors, biocides, defoamer organic polymer, and others based on the kind of water treatment additive. The organic polymer and scale inhibitors have the largest market share. The water treatment additives market is divided into wastewater treatment and water treatment based on the kind of water.
