The key drivers of the membrane water treatment market are the increasing demand of fresh water by the countries which have very scarce resources of the fresh water and these countries are trying to harness fresh water from the Saline water present there in abundance and this need of membranes in the desalination plants have boosted the membrane water treatment chemicals market very much.
The membrane installation are primary unit operations which are used in the pharmaceutical and the food and beverage industry and both of these industries account for around 40% of the whole membrane water treatment market. Other consumers include the various industries like Desalination industry.
The global membrane water treatment chemicals market can be segmented by type under mainly the headings of the online chemicals and cleaning chemicals and online chemicals are the chemicals that are dosed in the membrane water everytime in order to maintain the performance of the membrane and the cleaning chemicals are those chemicals that are dosed in the membrane systems whenever the cleaning is carried out. Other than these chemicals various other chemicals like oxygen scavengers are dosed in the systems.
Cleaning Chemicals and Antiscalants are the major segments accounting for around 60% of the global Cooling water treatment chemicals market share.
North America is the biggest market for the membrane treatment chemicals because eof the abundance of breweries, beverages and pharma industries etc. and it is followed by the market in Europe due to the same reason. In Asia Pacific and the middle east we find the application of membranes in desalination plants because of the scarcity of fresh water resources so the membrane water treatment chemicals market in middle east and Asia pacific is showing a very fast paced growth.
The major players of this industry are Ecolab Inc., GE power and water, Suez environment, Veolia International etc.. All of these companies account to more than 50 % of the whole market share. Rest of the market share is accounted by local competitors and various other notable players of the market.
Veolia Environment Inc. bagged a contract of $230mn from London borough contract which has landed it on the top firms list of water treatment chemicals.Kemira oyj have signed a contract with the Niacet Corporation and sold the whole business of pharmaceuticals and food businesses to it which can elevate position of kemira in the market.
