The Impact of the Different Market Factors on Flocculant and Coagulant Market in APAC

Flocculant and Coagulant Market

The global flocculant and coagulant market is projected to reach USD 6.01 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.9% between 2017 and 2022.

Flocculants and Coagulants (F&C) are chemical compounds used for water treatment to remove impurities, which may be of metallic, organic, or non-organic nature. Coagulants are used to destabilize suspended particles through a chemical reaction and flocculants are responsible for the transportation of the destabilized particles that cause collisions. Coagulants and flocculants are used in both municipal and industrial water treatment applications.

Declining freshwater resources coupled with stringent regulatory and sustainable mandates concerning the environment are the key factors driving the flocculant and coagulant market. However, the growing demand for alternative water treatment technologies, including UV disinfection and RO filtration is inhibiting market growth.

Key companies profiled in this report are SNF Floerger (France), Kemira OYJ (Finland), BASF SE (Germany), Ecolab Inc. (U.S.), Solenis LLC (U.S.), Buckman Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), Feralco AB (Sweden), Suez S.A. (France), Ixom Operations Pty Ltd. (Australia), and Kurita Water Industries Ltd. (Japan).

Rapid urbanization and increasing population of developing regions have encouraged companies to adopt several business strategies to stay competitive in the global flocculant and coagulant market between 2013 and 2017. Therefore, leading companies have adopted new product launches, expansions, and acquisitions as their key growth strategies in the global flocculant and coagulant market.

Kemira OYJ (Finland), one of the largest flocculant and coagulant manufacturers in the world, has adopted new product launches as its key strategy. Moreover, the company offers a broad product portfolio of coagulants and flocculants to numerous end-use industries, such as oil & gas, mining, and municipal water treatment.

The company’s coagulant product line includes a wide range of organic and inorganic coagulants, and offers both, dry and emulsion flocculants. Additionally, Kemira has a strong manufacturing and customer base worldwide. For instance, in April 2017, the company launched a high performance cationic flocculant named Kemira Superfloc® XD-7600 especially engineered for sludge dewatering applications. The product can enhance the sludge handling efficiency, and minimize storage and transportation cost.

BASF SE (Germany) has considered expansion as its key strategy to stay competitive in the global flocculant and coagulant market. Its in-depth product portfolio and strong geographic presence are the biggest strength of BASF’s core competency. BASF is the third-largest manufacturer of flocculants, globally, and offers products under its popular brands, namely, Alclar, Magnafloc, Organopol, Organosorb, Rheomax, and Zetag.
