Italy water treatment chemicals market is expected to register a moderate growth during the forecasted period, 2018-2023. The market is driven by numerous factors, such as a rising surface and ground water pollution, growing demand from power and industrial applications, and increasing demand from manufacturing and municipal sectors.
The demand for municipal water treatment and manufacturing wastewater treatment is growing, rapidly. Municipal water treatment is on the rise, majorly due to the increase in population over the years. The European Investment bank has been planning to invest EUR 200 million to improve the water treatment facilities in the country, as well as to improve the availability of fresh drinking water.
