Italy's water treatment chemicals market estimates to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of about 3%- 3.5% during 2015-2020 analysis period. Although the highest demand in this region is for corrosion and scale inhibitors, coagulants and flocculants, electric power generation and general industrial applications like manufacturing and mining process, record faster growth.
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 incidence 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.
Water is used in various industries, especially in emerging economies where several industries are set up. The required standard for water quality has made it necessary for better purification methods. However, water purification equipment alone is not enough to achieve this standard, hence; the usage of water treatment chemicals becomes indispensable to meet the desired standards of purified water.
In recent times, stringent environmental norms were set up to remove and treat water pollutants before they release into the environment. The municipal corporations have been adopting water treatment facilities to clean and recycle water before supplying for drinking and sanitation purposes.
The ItalyWater treatment chemicals market is segmented by product (Biocides & disinfectants, coagulants & flocculants, corrosion & scale inhibitors, defoamers & defoaming agents, pH adjusters and softeners and other chemicals) and by their application ( commercial & institutional, Electric power generation, energy, manufacturing, mining & mineral processing, municipal and other applications). The key players in this market are Accepta, BASF SE, Chemtreat Inc., Organo Corp., PQ Corp. and Wex technologies.
