Global Flocculants Market to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% During Forecast Period

The Global Flocculants Market will reach USD 953.5 Million by the end of 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.1% over the forecast period. The rising number of wastewater treatment plants due to the lack of water resources will drive the demand for flocculants during the forecast period. They are the mostly used water treatment chemicals. On the other hand, regulations on the adoption of chemicals in water treatment may limit the demand for flocculants over the next few years. Furthermore, power generation is one of the most major application segments for flocculants. Therefore, the rising power demand may increase the demand for flocculants infuture.

Flocculants are also majorly useful in waste treatment for tanneries, pigments, pesticides, and dyes, along with other wastes with suspended solids. Moreover, cationic flocculants have usage in the food & beverage industry for treating wastewater. In mining and excavation industries, it has applications in eliminating red mud from minerals over the treatment process.

The growing demand for specific formulations in developing regions will offer opportunities for the global flocculants market. However, the growth of alternative water treatment technologies, as well as an increasing requirement for eco-friendly products formula, can challenge industry development over the forecast period.

Flocculants have usage in several end-use industries, such as pulp & paper, textile, municipal water treatment, oil & gas, mining, and others. In terms of the end-use industry, the pulp & paper segment will lead the flocculant market in terms of value and volumeover the predicted period. The high consumption of flocculants in the pulp & paper sector for various procedures and the number of primary water treatment applications have contributed to the development of the market.

In terms of geographical perspective, the Asia Pacific region is likely to witness immense growth due to the increasing demand from the growing chemical industries. Likewise, high industrial productivity with high economic growth in this region will drive product demand in several industries such as metal, oil & gas, and food & beverages. Moreover, the availability of cheap labor is drawing many international companies to develop and capitalize in developing countries such as India and China.
