Hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride is predominantly used in purification plants. It is a low molecular weight polymeride. Hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride possesses various physical as well as chemical properties. For instance, it has no toxicity, and is soluble in water. Hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride possesses high thermal and chemical stability. Hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride is used for various purposes, such as circulation of cool water systems, crude oil dewatering, oilfield fill water, and low pressure boilers. It is also used in cement additives. The production process of hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride encompasses polymerizing maleic anhydride in xylene, which is a solvent.

Global Hydrolyzed Polymaleic Anhydride Market: Segmentation

The global hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride market can be segmented based on grade, application, end-use industry, and region. Based on grade, the hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride market can be divided into reagent grade, bio-tech grade, and others. The reagent grade segment is expected to expand significantly in the near future. In terms of application, the hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride market can be segregated into cooling water systems, concrete additive, water desalination, crude oil evaporation, and others. The water desalination was the major segment of the hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride market in 2017, led by the rise in demand for purified water among the vast population. In terms of end-use industry, the hydrolyzed polymaleic anhydride market can be classified into water treatment, oil & gas, and others.
