Market Definition

Antiscalants are added into feed water before it flows through the RO membrane. The infusion of antiscalants prevents scale formation by delaying the reaction time between magnesium and calcium, thereby allowing the water to be purified by RO systems seamlessly. In thermal desalination (MSF, MED) antiscalants are added to the feed water to prevent scale formation in boilers, cooling towers, and other equipment.

Market Insights

The Middle East Antiscalant Market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-26. The low availability of groundwater and increasing demand for desalination plants across the Middle East are the prime factors driving the antiscalant market. The constant degradation of the water quality index owing to the mounting transport & industrial pollution levels is astronomically fueling the need for reverse osmosis water treatment, which, in turn, is augmenting the demand for Antiscalants across the region.

Further, the demand for antiscalants is also increasing across industries like Oil & Gas, Metal & Mining, Water Treatment, and Power Generation. This is because they help reduce the maintenance & operational costs and saves time. The Middle East accounts for a large share of the global oil reserve. Therefore, the increasing demand for antiscalants from the oil & gas industry is projected to drive the market in the coming years.

Impact of Covid-19 on the Middle East Antiscalant Market

  • The Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 catastrophically affected several industries across the Middle East, and the.
  • The temporary shutdown of various sectors due to the lockdown imposition negatively influenced the demand for antiscalants across several end-markets.
  • Disruption in the supply chain was also marked as one of the major contributors to the declining market growth.
  • However, rising concerns regarding the consumption of clean & healthy products surged the demand for RO water purifiers, which, in turn, propelled the production & sales of Antiscalants across the Middle East.

Market Segmentation

By End-User

  • Oil & Gas
  • Metal & Mining
  • Water Treatment
  • Power Generation
  • Chemical Industry
  • Others (Food & Beverage, Pulp & Paper, etc.)

The Oil & Gas industry is among the major end-users of the antiscalants market. The pipelines required for the transportation of oil & gas from rigs to refineries need to be of the highest quality to avoid spillage. Scale formation can lead to the weakening of these pipelines. Therefore, the water used in the respective industry needs to be chemically treated with antiscalants to reduce the scale formation on equipment & machinery used in oil & gas production.

The Middle East is among the largest hubs of crude oil reservoirs. Therefore, the need for antiscalants is expected to dramatically increase from the oil & gas industry across the region, thereby contributing to the overall market growth.

By Method

  • Sea
  • Brackish

In the Middle East, suppliers & consumers broadly classify antiscalants as per the water source (seawater, brackish water). Seawater is used majorly across industries located near coastal areas. On the other front, industries far away from the seawater source use Brackish water. The gradual depletion of water resources is leading to the increasing inclination toward using seawater for industrial activities. Hence, with the surging usage of seawater across various end-user industries, the demand for antiscalants is also expected to boost significantly.

Key Trends in the Middle East Antiscalant Market

  • The large share of oil reserves in the Middle East is fueling the demand for antiscalants. The various activities associated with the oil & gas discovery across the region is providing profitable growth opportunities for the antiscalant market.
  • A rapid surge in research & development on Antiscalants, coupled with the growing awareness regarding water & wastewater treatment facility, are also driving the antiscalant market.

Country Landscape:

  • UAE
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Bahrain
  • Oman
  • Qatar
  • Kuwait

Oil & Gas is one of Saudi Arabia’s major industries. The country is witnessing a significantly increasing number of desalination plants, primarily due to depleting renewable sources & various government initiatives to curb those. It, in turn, is surging the use of antiscalants in these plants and fueling the overall market growth across Saudi Arabia.

On the other hand, the Kingdom is also focusing on enhancing its non-oil sectors, such as chemicals, plastics, etc. Since industrialization has critically weakened water resources, the Saudi government has advised industries not to use groundwater. It has generated the need for effective water treatment plants and, consequently, antiscalants. Hence, in the coming years, Saudi Arabia shall witness decent market growth and create profitable opportunities for the leading companies participating in the market.

Market Dynamics

Key Drivers

Mounting Number of Desalination Projects across the Middle East to Drive the Antiscalant Market

The increasing water stress in the Middle East is leading to the mounting need for desalination for daily water requirements. The construction of "Solar Dome" desalination plants in Neom is one of the crucial desalination projects in the country. 

The UAE is also involved in desalination projects. Taweelah plant in Abu Dhabi is likely to be fully operational in Q4 2022, having a capacity of over 900,000 cubic meters of water per day. It is projected to meet the water demand of over 350,000 households and will be 44% larger than the world’s largest reverse osmosis plant. Hence, a surging number of desalination projects across the Middle East is expected to boost the antiscalant market in the years to come.

Growth Challenges

  • Rising environmental concerns associated with the several chemicals utilized in Antiscalant production
  • Overuse of antiscalants can alter the physiochemical properties of the membrane.
