Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market to Witness Impressive Growth Through 5.8% CAGR In 2020

Industrial sludge is generated during the wastewater treatment process. Wastewater released by different industries contains a large amount of water, microorganisms and chemical constituents. Sludge requires further treatment to reduce its volume and render it stable and safe for disposal. The treatment primarily aims to reduce the volume of water and pathogen content in order to facilitate the safe disposal and possible usage of sludge as fertilizer. Dewatering and drying, conditioning and stabilization, thickening, and digestion are the processes involved in industrial sludge treatment.
Rising global industrialization is expected to boost the worldwide industrial sludge treatment chemicals market in the near future. Emerging economies are contributing significantly to global industrialization. Emerging economies include countries in Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. Furthermore, favorable governmental regulations are likely to drive the global industrial sludge treatment chemicals market in the near future. However, availability of high-performance sludge treatment technologies is estimated to hamper market growth. Development of cost-effective and innovative industrial sludge treatment chemicals is anticipated to offer growth opportunities to players in the market. Additionally, recycling of treated industrial sludge holds immense potential in the industrial sludge treatment chemicals market.
In terms of revenue, activated sludge emerged as the largest type of sludge in the global industrial sludge treatment chemicals market in 2013. The segment accounted for over 46% share of the global industrial sludge treatment chemicals market in 2013. Activated sludge is anticipated to remain the largest type of sludge in the next few years. Flocculants was the largest type of process chemical in the global industrial sludge treatment chemicals market in 2013. It is projected to be the fastest growing type of process chemical during the forecast period. In terms of share, coagulants were the second-largest type of process chemicals at the end of 2013.
The segment is expected to record growth similar to the flocculants segment during the forecast period. Conditioning and stabilization was the largest process treatment segment in the global industrial sludge treatment chemicals market in 2013. It is expected to remain the largest process treatment segment in the next few years. Food & beverages was the largest sludge producing end-use industry in the global industrial sludge treatment chemicals market in 2013. It is anticipated to gain market share during the forecast period. Personal care & chemicals was the second-largest end-use industry segment in 2013 and is likely to record the fastest growth rate in the next few years.
