Flocculants Market

Flocculants Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2016 - 2024

Global Flocculants Market: Overview

Flocculation is a process wherein colloids come out of suspension in the form of flake masses due to the addition of clarifying agents. Flocculants are substances which promote the clumping of particles used in treating of waste water, which is useful in separating solid harmful particles from water. These agents promote flocculation by causing colloids and other suspended particles to aggregate in liquid. They are used in various water treatment processes. Flocculants are multivalent cations such as calcium or magnesium .It changes the arrangement of the particle in the glaze which makes the particle attract each other and join up into larger groups. Vinegar, gelatin and aluminium sulfate are a few examples of flocculants. These agents are used in various industries such as chemical processing, food & beverage, oil & gas and power generation among others. Selection of flocculants depends on optimizing the cost to performance ratio. The commercial flocculants are classified as inorganic, synthetic organic and those derived from natural products

Increasing number of waste water treatment projects on account of scarcity of water resources is expected to drive the flocculants market within the forecast period. They are the most commonly used water treatment chemicals. However, stringent regulations on use of chemicals in water treatment may curb the demand for flocculants over the next few years. In addition, power generation is the most significant application segment for flocculants. Thus, the growing demand for power may augment the demand for flocculants in near future. Rising demand for clean and potable water in emerging economies such as China and India is expected to drive the demand for flocculants market in Asia Pacific in near future. China is expected to be the largest consumer of flocculants during the forecasted period. Some of the major players in the flocculants market are 3F Chimica Americas, CRW Finishing Inc, Hubbart - Hall Inc and Severn Trent Services among others.

Increasing Applications in Construction & Engineering Boosts Demand in Flocculants Market

The rising scope for applications in several end-use industry verticals, including engineering, construction, and physical, as well as surface chemistry, is triggering growth within the global flocculants market in the coming years. The manufacturers and leading industry players working in the global flocculants market are focused on the development of new and more effective technologies to deal with the problem of waste water disposal. Furthermore, various lucrative advantages offered by the products and solutions in the global flocculants market, such as reduction in cost, enhanced rates of particle suspension, improvements in the clarity in the aqueous phase, increased rate of throughput on the production equipment, reduction in the required size of the tank, and greater filtration of drying beds, as well as filters, are attracting industry’s growth in the coming years.

The increasing demand for specific formulations from several developing nations, as well as the increasing demand to reduce the red mud from essential minerals in process of water purification, is triggering high growth in the global flocculants market. On the other hand, the availability of relatively low-priced technologies for water treatment, as well as the rising requirement for ecologically friendly products and formulas, may hinder the development of the global flocculants market in the next few years. However, the simpler operations facilitated by the solutions and formulations in the global flocculants market attract a wide range of consumers and end users, motivating the growth of the industry.

Additionally, the rising demand for natural chemicals has been steadily rising over the past few years. This trend is also anticipated to fuel the demand within the global flocculants market in the next few years. Moreover, the focus of the manufacturers and players in the global flocculants market on the development of new, more environmentally friendly, and innovative products, as well as the increased investments and efforts in undertaking research and development projects is also expected to bode well for the expansion of the global flocculants market in the coming years. The manufacturers in the global flocculants market are focusing on fulfilling the increasing consumer demand for bio flocculant products.
