The GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 18.2% during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-26, says MarkNtel Advisors. The market growth primarily attributes to the increasing issues of water contamination, burgeoning waste from industries, which gets discharged in water bodies, and mounting need for potable water due to rapid industrialization & expansion across the Gulf countries.
The production of potable drinking water in the desalination process, coupled with industrial process water is anticipated to drive the market in the coming years. Saudi Arabia has the largest desalination capacity and is looking forward to increasing its Million Imperial Gallons a Day (MIGD) in the coming years. This extensive capacity is the largest consumer of water & water treatment chemicals, which further backs the market growth.
For instance, Veolia Water Technologies Gulf is anticipated to remain an active participant in treating water & wastewater across Kuwait in the forecast period. Recently, Kuwait has awarded a contract to the leader for the supply, supervision, installation, and commission of the 53 units of AnoxKaldnes™ Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) packaged sewage treatment plants. It is the largest project received by Veolia that would allow the reusability of 40,000m3 of water per day in Kuwait.
Moreover, the constant development of central wastewater treatment units for small & medium scale manufacturers, severe weather conditions, & increasingly exhausting water resources in the region are other crucial aspects surging the demand for water treatment chemicals, thereby augmenting the market growth during 2021-26.
Covid-19 Positively Impacted the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market
The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic had a severe impact on most industries. However, the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market witnessed positive effects. With the rapidly increasing water consumption to maintain hygiene amidst the crisis, the demand for safe water rapidly surged, which, in turn, boosted the need for water treatment chemicals.
Besides, several studies conducted worldwide indicated the presence of the RNA virus in wastewater. Hence, it surged the need for massive research on suitable ways for wastewater treatment & disinfection methods.
Moreover, with an urgent review & focus on the wastewater treatment techniques to assess the possibility of SARS-CoV-2 transfer through wastewater, the demand for treatment chemicals propelled and is anticipated to rise more extensively in the coming years, thereby fueling the overall market growth.
Industrial Users to Significantly Boost the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market
Based on End-User, the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market segments into:
Amongst these, the Industrial sector is projected to be the most prominent end-user and contribute significantly to the market growth in the forecast period.
It owes principally to the constantly rising sectors like mining, power, oil & gas, and chemical industries, soaring the demand for various water & wastewater treatment chemicals to dispose of wastewater through adequate procedures.
Besides, other factors like rapid industrialization, technological developments, increasing exploration & development of new oilfields, burgeoning new construction projects, and the extensive mining industry result in high demand for fresh & processed water.
In addition, the rising number of industrial activities has led to severe environmental deterioration across the GCC, primarily due to inappropriately done water treatment. However, the growing awareness & stringent regulations regarding the need to treat wastewater across industries shall surge the demand for treatment chemicals in the forecast period.
Coagulants & Flocculants to Witness Maximum Demand During 2021-26
Coagulants & Flocculants work in combination for removing contaminants from water. Coagulants are ionically charged compounds with low molecular weight designed to neutralize the charge of suspended particles and remove haziness & color from the water. On the other hand, Flocculants, the ones with high molecular weight, bind these charge-neutralized substances into larger aggregations to pace up water clarification. Their prime function is to remove microscopic particles from water.
Their extensive usage for lime softening, sludge thickening, and removal of contaminants like heavy metals, oil, and phosphate from the water across various end-users like chemical, oil & gas, & power industries is the prime factor expected to lead them to attain the largest market share during 2021-26, states MarkNtel Advisors in their research report, “GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market Analysis, 2021.”
The most prominent factor that shall drive the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market is the mounting requirements for treatment chemicals for appropriate wastewater treatment owing to the imposition of strict norms by the governments of GCC countries. Besides, several agencies of different nations across the region setting standard limits on the traces of harmful substances before their disposal in the environment is another crucial aspect likely to augment the market growth in the forecast period.
Possible Growth Restraints
The key factors that might restrain the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market are the fluctuating prices of raw materials, coupled with the side effects of using treatment chemicals on the environment & aquatic life. Moreover, the high maintenance & energy costs involved in the water treatment process is another crucial aspect that might hinder the marke growth in the coming years.
Saudi Arabia to Lead the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market with the Largest Share
According to the research report, the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market expands across:
Here, Saudi Arabia is anticipated to dominate the market with the largest share in the forecast period owing to the country's reliance on recycled water for different purposes due to the unavailability of running surface water.
Additionally, the rising focus of Saudi Arabia on superior water treatment technologies, coupled with the development of smart water grid legislatures to process wastewater, fueling the overall market growth.
For instance: The Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), most recently, has completed a significant desalination project in Yanbu III, which began operations in November last year. Also, the Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) is now supervising a new expansion project to the Yanbu desalination facilities.
Besides, the growing sewage treatment capacity in the country is another crucial aspect expected to provide innovative solutions to the water shortage problems. Moreover, to become the largest market for Treated Sewage Effluent (TSE), Saudi Arabia is actively taking several initiatives to reduce water consumption by reducing waste & eliminating non-sustainable practices.
According to MarkNtel Advisors, the leading players in the GCC Water & Waste Water Treatment Chemicals Market are Al- Jazira Water Treatment Chemical, Emvees Wastewater Treatment LLC, Fouz Chemical Company, General Electric, Kemira, ESI, Metito, Nalco Ecolab, Veolia, Wetico.
