Industrial sludge treatment chemicals are the formulations used for treating waters which are polluted by harmful industrial chemicals or by commercial activities, prior to the waters’ re-use or release into the environment. The end-users of these chemicals are all the industries that produce harmful sludge such as mining processing chemicals, iron and steel industries, mines and quarries, food industries, complex organic chemicals industries, nuclear industries and water treatment industries.
Industrial sludge treatment chemicals have various applications which include coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, flotation, de-coloration, de-foamation, corrosion inhibition, de-salination, ion-exchange, and some others.
The global Industrial sludge treatment chemicals market is growing at a steady rate. Based on the type of chemical, the market can be segmented into corrosion inhibitors, coagulants and flocculants, de-foamers, anti-foaming agents, disinfectants, biocides, and pH adjustment chemicals. Cost-effectiveness makes the industrial sludge treatment chemicals market dominant among other industrial sludge treatment processes. Metal separation and odor control are the key application areas where a double digit growth is seen.
The increasing demand for innovative and cost-effective chemicals is impelling the market expansion. The rising concern for environmental protection and stricter regulations related to discharge processes are driving the demand for sludge treatment chemicals. The product development in terms of reliability and cost effectiveness is expected to drive the demand in the market in the future years as well.
It is anticipated that the mergers and acquisitions among the larger group of companies and the rising demand for high performance sludge treatment chemicals meeting the environmental standards will create opportunities for other more specialized industrial sludge treatment chemical providers. Other alternative industrial sludge treatment processes such as biological sludge treatment are some of the restraining factors holding back the growth of the industrial sludge treatment chemicals market.
