Key Market Trends

Power Industry to Dominate the Market

  • Power plants utilize a large amount of water, primarily for the proper operation of turbines with the generation of heat and is the major consumer of boiler water chemicals.
  • Power industries, such as thermal and nuclear plants often require chemicals to inject feed water into the boiler system. 
    • In the nuclear industry, the heat generated due to nuclear fission is used to produce steam from water in the boiler, which is used to drive a steam turbine.
    • In thermal power plants, a boiler or steam generator is an integral device used to produce steam. This steam is then piped to the turbine of the thermal power plant.
  • The energy generated by the nuclear plants in the region has been consistently growing over the past decade. There are also plans to launch new nuclear reactors in the near future.
  • Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors, power industry is expected dominate the market studied during the forecast period.
