Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market: Overview

  • Sludge is by-product that is produced primarily from the treatment of wastewater in industries. It contains organic matters, pathogens, chemicals, and microorganisms. It also contains other harmful agents, such as heavy metals, which adversely affect environment and cause severe health issues when directly exposed.
  • Sludge requires further treatment to reduce its volume and render it safe for disposal
  • Sludge treatment chemicals are primarily employed to purify water before it can be released into the atmosphere. The treatment essentially aims to reduce the volume of water and pathogen content in order to facilitate the safe disposal and possible usage of sludge as fertilizer.

Key Drivers of Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market

  • Rise in industrialization in developing countries has been increasing the production of sludge. This, in turn, has been boosting the demand for sludge treatment chemicals for sludge treatment processes, thereby propelling the demand for sludge treatment chemicals.
  • Increase in usage of treated sludge in agricultural processes as fertilizer is also driving the demand for sludge treatment chemicals. This is projected to augment the sludge treatment chemicals market during the forecast period.
  • Rising environmental concerns, stringent environmental policies for waste water treatment by governments across globe are increasing need of sludge treatment processes which in turn projected to drive global sludge treatment chemicals market during the forecast period.

Coagulants Segment to Account for Major Market Share

  • Coagulants and flocculants segments held major share of the market in 2018. Of these, the coagulants segment accounted for more than 50% share of the global sludge treatment chemicals market in 2018. The segment is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period.
  • Coagulants are used for solid removal, lime softening, water clarification, solid dewatering, and sludge thickening
  • Cost effectiveness associated with coagulants vis-à-vis other chemicals is boosting the demand for coagulants in sludge treatment processes. This is estimated to drive the global sludge treatment market during the forecast period.

Food & Beverages Segment to Dominate Global Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market

  • In terms of end-use industry, the food & beverages segment constituted major share of the global sludge treatment chemicals market in 2018. Sludge produced from food & beverages contains high level of BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand) & COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand). Sludge treatment chemicals are used in large quantities to treat wastewater, which has high BOD and COD. BOD and COD are the amount of oxygen used by microorganisms in the biological process of metabolizing organic matter in water. Greater the BOD, lower the amount of dissolved oxygen available.
  • The personal care & chemicals segment is expected to expand at a rapid pace due to the increase in demand for sludge treatment in the segments owing to the stringent government regulations on disposal of wastewater
