The waste water treatment chemicals market is estimated to achieve a CAGR of more than 8%, during the forecast period, 2018-2023.
Wastewater treatment is defined as the process to convert wastewater, which is no longer suitable for use. Wastewater is treated to be either reused or is returned to the water cycle. Waste water treatment chemicals constitute one such technique, wherein contaminated or wastewater is treated with chemicals in order to make it fit for human consumption, as well as for other purposes which require the use of clean water. The high incidence of water-borne epidemics has increased the urge for water purification, leading to the utilization of waste water treatment chemicals for the purpose of purification of drinking water and for use in industrial and commercial applications. The standards for clean water have increased, demanding improved treatment methods and chemicals.
