Polyacrylamide Market, By Type (Anionic, Non-Ionic, Cationic, and Others), By End User (Paper & Pulp

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1952214


Increasing demand from paper & pulp, water treatment, oil & gas and other industries, is expected to drive the market growth of the Polyacrylamide Market during the forecast period.

Polyacrylamide is a polymer that is made through the synthesis of acrylamide subunits. Due to the rise in environmental concerns and the need for proper management of water, the demand for polyacrylamide has increased.

Polyacrylamide acts as a coagulant to enhance the coagulation-flocculation process. It also lessens the friction in the pad drilling technique that is normally used for the production of shale gas.

Segment Analysis:

The polyacrylamide market has been segmented on the basis fo type and end-user.

Based on type, the market has been divided into anionic, non-ionic, cationic, and others. The demand for anionic is the highest, as it is used in the treatment of water by municipal bodies and as a soil conditioner. It is also used in mineral processing, metallurgy, iron and steel, and electronics industries.

On the basis of the end-user, the market has been segmented into paper making, water treatment, oil & gas, and others. The use of polyacrylamide is the highest in water treatment, as it helps treat sewage, industrial waste, and drinking water. Moreover, the growing consideration of regulatory bodies on the provision of clean water is driving the market.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increasing use in mining for separation of ores
  • Regulations prohibiting extensive use of polyacrylamide can hamper the market growth
