The global organic coagulant market size is expected to advance at a CAGR of 9.0% during 2022–2030, to reach USD 3,811.5 million by 2030. This can be ascribed to the scarcity of water, rapid industrialization and urbanization, the presence of strict government rules, the growing population, and the surging awareness among people about the advantages of pure and fresh water.
The polyamine category is expected to witness the fastest growth in the coming years. This can be because polyamine, a type of organic compound, is used in several industries such as paper making, personal care, and water treatment, to remove suspended solids and impurities. This compound is commonly used because of its several benefits such as the capability to eliminate impurities and contaminants, work over a wide pH range, and the ability to produce broad, dense flocs that settle fast. It can also help eliminate color, organic matter, turbidity, heavy metals, and other materials from water.
Additionally, there are different types of polyamine, such as propylene diamine, ethylenediamine, tetraethylenepentamine, and diethylenetriamine. The polyamine is temperate of water-soluble polymers and the amine active group consists of heavy molecular weight. The active group gives a positive charge that helps it attract and suspend water impurities and contaminants. Polyamine is also used in different types of water-treating processes such as industrial process water, water waste, and sewage water. It is also utilized for other purifying processes such as sedimentation and filtration.
The municipal water treatment category is expected to grow at a significant rate over the next few years. In municipal water treatment facilities, water is collected from natural resources, such as rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and groundwater, and treated it to make safe for health. Water from natural sources consists of a large number of stains, manganese, and iron, due to which such facilities required a large quantity of organic coagulant to purify or remove contaminants, impurities, and suspended solids from the water.
Moreover, the increasing populations of cities and shortage of water are continuously boosting the need for purifying and retreating water for use, in which these chemicals are greatly required to eliminate impurities.
Chemicals such as iron salts and aluminum have been utilized for decades to purify water and wastewater because these chemicals help remove pollutants and impurities from water and used water. However, these have been connected with various harmful components and drawbacks. They can also produce hazardous by-products like trihalomethanes when they reacted with water in an approachable way.
It is important to limit trihalomethanes in treated water because it is considered carcinogenic and is also a reason for health issues to people. The adoption of harmful coagulants may also find heavy metals in the purified water, which may cause serious health issues. Therefore, the demand for these organic chemicals is increasing continuously in the market.
Some of the major players operating in the organic coagulant market are Kemira Oyj, SNF Group, BASF SE, Veolia, Ecolab Inc., Kurita-GK Chemical Co. LTD., Baker Hughes Company, Solenis, USALCO, and Buckman Laboratories Pty Ltd.
