The United Kingdom market for water treatment chemicals is expected to maintain a CAGR of about 4%-4.5% between 2015 and 2020. Corrosion and scale inhibitors constitute the largest product segment while, municipal water treatment constitutes to be the largest application area in the UK. However, demand for coagulants and flocculants record a faster growth in terms of product segment, while electric power generation and industrial applications like manufacturing, mining and mineral processing grow rapidly in the application category.

Water treatment is defined as the process employed for eliminating contaminants present in water, which is achieved through a number of techniques. Water treatment chemicals consists of one such technique, wherein contaminated or waste-water is treated with chemicals to make it safe for human consumption and useful in other applications as well where clean water is a necessity. The higher risk of water-borne epidemics has urged the need to pump up the safety measures and undergo stringent procedures to avail purified water, this has led to the usage of water treatment chemicals for the purification of drinking water.

There are stringent environmental norms that require treatment and removal of pollutants from water before it is released to the environment. The municipal corporations are adopting water treatment facilities to clean and recycle water before it is being supplied for drinking and sanitation purposes.

The United Kingdom Water treatment chemicals market is segmented by product (Biocides & disinfectants, coagulants & flocculants, corrosion & scale inhibitors, defoamers and defoaming agents, pH adjusters and softeners and other chemicals) and their application (commercial & institutional, electric power generation, energy, manufacturing, mining & mineral processing, municipal and other applications). The prime players battling up in this market are Accepta, BASF SE, Chemtreat Inc., Organo Corp., PQ Corp. and Wex Technologies.


The rising water quality standards in industrial applications and the stringent environmental laws on water treatment and waste water management are the drivers of this market.


There is a strong requirement for the availability of alternate water treatment technologies in the market. Additionally, there is also a need to find Eco-friendly solutions for water treatment that can balance and treat the chemical as well as the naturally occurring water pollution differently.
