Chapter 10 Primary Research – Key Findings

Polyacrylamide is a synthetic chemical that can be produced by the synthesis of acrylamide copolymer. It can be modified to fit in a broad range of applications. Ionic characteristics make it a suitable material for usage in various applications. Polyacrylamide is commercially available as non-ionic, cationic, anionic and others (homopolymers, copolymers, etc.). Based on its physical and chemical properties, polyacrylamide is used in applications such as water treatment, oil and gas, paper, chemical, and bio-medical. 

In terms of volume, anionic polyacrylamide dominated the global market with more than 45% share in 2014. Cationic polyacrylamide was the fastest growing product segment of the global polyacrylamide market in 2014. Non-ionic, homopolymer, and copolymer polyacrylamide are the other key product types. The polyacrylamide market exhibits high degree of backward integration, as most polyacrylamide producers are also engaged in the production of acrylamide, its key raw material.

Ionic characteristics of polyacrylamide make it a suitable material for usage as a coagulant and flocculant. Coagulants and flocculants are the materials used to separate solids from liquids. Due to these properties, polyacrylamide is extensively used in water treatment applications. Polyacrylamide is also employed as a friction reducer in oil and gas applications; thus, it enhances oil recovery in oil fields. Paper making is an important application of polyacrylamide, wherein it is used as a binding agent. Polyacrylamide is also employed as a soil conditioner in agricultural applications. Other applications of polyacrylamide include mining, ore processing, food additives, textiles manufacturing, and gel electrophoresis. 

Water treatment and petroleum are the major applications of polyacrylamide. In terms of volume, the water treatment application dominated the global polyacrylamide market with more than 50% share in 2014. Rising awareness about wastewater and the harmful constituents present in it is expected to drive the demand for polyacrylamide, which is used in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants. Increase in mining activities across the globe is anticipated to boost the demand for polyacrylamide used in mining. Similarly, demand for polyacrylamide is estimated to rise significantly in shale gas extraction facilities. Polyacrylamide is used as friction reducer for economical oil recovery in these facilities. 

Asia Pacific and Europe were the major markets for polyacrylamide in 2014. In terms of volume, Asia Pacific was the largest regional market for polyacrylamide, with more than 55% share in 2014. Leading polyacrylamide manufacturers have been focusing on capacity expansion in the region. Of late, the polyacrylamide market has been mainly driven by strong demand in emerging economies such as China, India and Brazil. Demand for polyacrylamide declined significantly due to the global economic downturn between 2008 and 2009. However, demand for polyacrylamide has been rising steadily since 2010 owing to the uptrend in end-user industries, following the revival of the global economy. 

Intense competition exists in the polyacrylamide market. The polyacrylamide market is globally diversified, with market players operating worldwide. Of late, industry participants have been shifting their focus toward capacity expansion in order to expand production capacities of their respective facilities. Increase in capacities is ascribed to rising demand for polyacrylamide in various applications such as wastewater treatment and enhanced oil recovery. Major players operating in global polyacrylamide market include SNF, BASF SE, Kemira, and PetroChina Company Limited.
