World demand for water treatment chemicals will continue to grow

Driven by sustainability requirements such as clean water, the demand for water treatment chemicals in the world will continue to grow strongly in 2022 despite various geopolitical and macroeconomic challenges. Some major producers predict that the world water treatment chemicals market will continue to grow in 2023.

Katie Kopp, vice president of global water market of Nalco Water, a subsidiary of Yikang, said that in the past few years, cost pressure and availability of raw materials have been major challenges in the industry, but the demand for safe and clean water continues to drive the growth of demand for water treatment solutions in multiple industries. Kepu said that the demand for water treatment solutions to help major companies solve complex regulatory and sustainability requirements in 2022 was stable, especially in the face of climate crisis. Effective water management in the production process can reduce water consumption by up to 44%, energy consumption by 22% and greenhouse gas emissions by 12%. Energy, power, food and beverage, manufacturing and data center industries have been exploring water treatment solutions.

Edward Connors, President of Solis Americas and Global Water Treatment Technology, said that Solis faced the same problems as other specialty suppliers in 2022, but benefited from its global capacity and scale, it could effectively alleviate most supply chain challenges and minimize its customer impact. Connors said, “Our global manufacturing footprint and world-class supply chain enable us to quickly transfer production, find alternative materials and provide seamless and continuous services to customers.”

Connors said that Solis’ service-oriented business model will succeed in 2022. The company’s on-site service team maintains a close and long-term relationship with customers. Because of this “intimate relationship”, Solis can quickly understand, respond and predict customers’ needs. Connors said: “With the latest sustainable chemicals, feeding equipment and advanced digital and analytical solutions, through its’ value first ‘plan, it can save costs and improve productivity for customers’ operation, which will help offset the impact of inflation in 2022.” Water treatment chemical company will continue to provide services for all industries in demand, and continue to respond to the challenges of water quality deterioration and water volume decline as well as the tightening of environmental laws and regulations, And accelerate the development of digital transformation.

Alexander Schaffler, vice president of global marketing and product development of the liquid purification technology department of Lucent, said that for many years, providing services to customers is also a part of Lucent’s products. The company’s LewaPlus computing and design software and other digital tools enable customers to achieve the best results in the ion exchange process. In addition, Schaeffler said that as sustainability became more and more important, Langson helped customers achieve their own green transformation by providing products to reduce carbon footprint, expertise in sustainability trends and regulatory impact on their business.

Sheffler said that despite various continuing geopolitical and macroeconomic challenges, the global demand for water treatment chemicals will continue to grow strongly this year, and the European market will face the impact of rising raw material prices. It is expected that the demand for water treatment chemicals will continue to grow after 2023. Key global trends such as population growth, urbanization and stricter regulatory system still exist. The awareness of sustainability, circular economy and health care will further promote the demand for efficient wastewater treatment products.

Products and solutions that help customers reduce greenhouse gas emissions are receiving increasing attention. Replacing fossil raw materials with bio-based, bio-cycle and renewable alternatives can reduce the carbon footprint of products without damaging the quality and performance of products. Langsheng is the first manufacturer of ion exchange resin to launch acrylic resin. The carbon dioxide reduction rate of the resin is at least 50%, and it is produced from at least 50% sustainable raw materials.

At the same time, the impact of climate change and industrial water pollution on clean water supply is still increasing. In addition to drinking water, water shortage also affects a wider range of uses, such as industrial and chemical processes, biotechnology, electronics and semiconductor industries. For example, the rapid development of electric vehicles has led to the growing demand for lithium, cobalt and nickel, which need to be mined and purified before use.

Yikang said that the water treatment market will continue to grow steadily, partly due to the growing global population and the increasing attention of industrial enterprises to water quality and conservation. The company has developed an intelligent water management method that combines chemicals and services through digital technology to comprehensively address customer needs. Intelligent water management can maximize water use efficiency and reduce water waste.
