Water treatment can be defined as the process employed for eliminating contaminants present in water, which can be achieved via a number of techniques. Water treatment chemicals constitute one such technique, wherein contaminated or wastewater is treated with chemicals in order that it make fit for human consumption and in applications which require clean water.
The higher incidence of water borne epidemics has increased the awareness of water purification and the use of water treatment chemicals for the purpose of purification of drinking water. Water is being used in various industries especially in the emerging economies where there are large number of industries being set up. The standards for water quality have gone up as now, they demand better purification methods. As the water purification equipment is not adequate to achieve this standard, it requires several other water purification chemicals.
There are stringent environmental norms that require treatment and removal of pollutants from water before it is released into the environment. The municipal corporations are adopting water treatment facilities to clean and recycle water before it is supplied for drinking and sanitation purposes.
The Mexico Water treatment chemicals market is segmented by the product (Biocides & disinfectants, coagulants & flocculants, corrosion & scale inhibitors, defoamers & defoaming agents, pH adjusters and softeners and other chemicals), by their application (commercial & institutional, electric power generation, energy, manufacturing, mining & mineral processing, municipal and other applications). The clear leaders in this market are Accepta, BASF SE, Chemtreat Inc., Organo Corp., PQ Corp. and Wex technologies.
The soaring water quality standards in industrial applications and the exacting environmental laws on water treatment and waste-water management are the prime driving forces of this market.
There are no other alternative water treatment technologies available in the market in the current scenario. There is also a need to find eco-friendly solutions for water treatment that can balance and treat the chemical and biological water pollution differently.
