“Stringent environment and water resources protection laws and declining freshwater resources are key factors fueling the growth of the water clarifiers market”
The global water clarifiers market is estimated to be USD 5.39 billion in 2017 and projected to reach USD 7.43 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2017 to 2022. Stringent water resource protection and management regulations in developed countries, declining freshwater resources in APAC, and rapid urbanization are key factors that are driving the market for water clarifiers. Moreover, increasing industrialization results in the high requirement of treated water, which, in turn, is expected to fuel the demand for water clarifiers. However, the growing demand for alternative water treatment technologies, such as UV disinfection and RO filtration could lower the consumption of water clarifiers like coagulants and flocculants.

“Based on end-use industry, the municipal water treatment segment is estimated to lead the water clarifiers market during the forecast period”
The municipal water treatment is the largest end-use industry segment of the water clarifiers market, in terms of both, volume and value. Increased investments in municipal water supply infrastructures in emerging countries, such as India, China, and Indonesia, among others, and steps to access safe drinking water supplies and sanitation facilities are expected to propel the demand for flocculants and coagulants. For instance, China had more than 3,800 wastewater treatment plants in 2014; the municipalities in the country are concentrating on water-saving mechanisms, such as recycling and reusing greywater, and are mandating incorporation of water treatment techniques in residential and public buildings. Major municipal water treatment activities include sewage treatment, desalination process, membrane treatments, and water processing.

“Rising demand for water clarifiers in various applications is expected to drive the water clarifiers market in the APAC region”
APAC is expected to be the largest market for water clarifiers, in terms of both, volume and value during the forecast period. Implementation of strict environmental regulations for clean drinking water and presence of huge industrial infrastructure in China, Japan, India, Indonesia, South Korea, and Australia & New Zealand are driving the market growth. Water clarifiers are largely used in mining, pulp & paper, and textile industries in this region. The demand for water clarifiers is significantly high in the mining and mineral processing industry of China and Australia & New Zealand.
