Growing water shortage, high-water usage, and depletion of aquifers are anticipated to boost the global flocculants and coagulants market during the forecast period.
The global flocculants and coagulants market was valued at USD 10.6 Billion in 2018, owing to the growing water and wastewater treatment activities all over the world. Flocculants and Coagulants are specialty chemicals widely used for water treatment, solids removal, water clarification, sludge thickening, and solids dewatering. Coagulants are organic and inorganic charged molecules which are used for neutralizing charged particles during water treatment. Flocculants are compounds with long chains and are mostly used for chemically augmenting primary treatment to decrease suspended solids and organic masses from primary clarifiers.

Furthermore, the report offers an in-depth valuation of flocculants and coagulants industry’s competitive landscape, with global and as well as regional players operating in the market.
Based on type, the market is categorized into flocculants and coagulants. Increase in demand for water in irrigation, agricultural and urban use leading to contamination of ground as well as surface water, impacts of climatic changes mainly resulting from the drought-like condition, inadequate control and monitoring of aquifers and energy extractions techniques like hydraulic fracturing and coal-bed methane are contributing towards the flocculants and coagulants market growth during the forecast period.
Based on end-user, the market is categorized into water and wastewater treatment, oil & gas, mining, pulp & paper, and others. Significant growth of various end-use industries such as pharmaceutical, food and oil & gas is projected to propel the demand of flocculants and coagulants over the next few years. Growing industrialization, increasing population coupled with the snowballing demand for efficient quality water for daily domestic usage and drinking in developing economies such as India and China, are some of the aspects driving the end-use industries in the flocculants and coagulants market over the forecast period.
Based on the region, the global flocculants and coagulants market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Central & South America. The Asia Pacific region held the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 6% over the forecast period. Due to an increase in population, people have less access to clean drinking water, especially in rural areas. In rural areas, the water supply is scarce and groundwater is majorly used in all activities in countries such as India, Indonesia, and other developing economies. Growing contamination of natural resources is due to the high disposition of industrial wastewater in rivers and other water bodies are expected to drive large investment in water reuse and water treatment activities, which is anticipated to drive the flocculants and coagulants market over the forecast period.
The major players of global flocculants and coagulants market include BASF SE, Ecolab, Solvay, SNF Floerger, ChemTreat, Inc., Kemira, SUEZ, Thermax Global, Glen Farrow UK Ltd., Tramfloc, Inc., and others.
