Cooling towers are engaged in various industries to cool a plethora of process fluids. With prolonged operations, different minerals present in â€˜cooling water are deposited inside the cooling towers, as well as the equipment. To combat such problems, cooling water treatment chemicals are employed. These chemicals now occupy a widespread and fast growing market, worldwide.
An industry where a cooling tower is installed is a consumer for this market. The industries that classify as major consumers of the cooling water treatment chemicals include power industry, institutional industry, and food & beverage industry; the remaining industries can be classified as small consumers.
Factors such as changing legal scenarios in Asia-Pacific, environmental regulations concerning wastewater discharge and stringent laws put in place by governments to check industrial wastewater disposal, collectively contribute to the growth of the market. With rising environmental awareness and limited availability of fresh water in the Middle East, companies are looking for ways to decrease the consumption of water.
Global Cooling Water Treatment Chemicals Market Share, by End-User Industry, 2015 (%)
Scale inhibitors, corrosion inhibitors, and biocides are the major segments accounting for nearly 96% share of the global cooling water treatment chemicals market. Scale inhibitors segment is growing rapidly when compared to other segments and occupies a share of 43.73% of the global market.
