Water players a vital role in everyone’s life. Clean water is essential for drinking, industrial works, hospitals, commercial spaces, and others. In spite of personal cleaning machines and water purifiers water coming from dams, rivers, lakes and other sources needs to be treated chemically due to harmful content present. Industries consume tons of liters of water every day and this water is released in rivers, seas, and lakes and is reused again by chemically treating it. The major key advantages of water treatment chemicals are it provides clean and reusable water, protects the environment, keep diseases away, and produces energy (Hydroelectricity). There are some disadvantages of chemicals used to treat water. For instance, chemical coagulation an additive process used in treating water results in large proportions of sludge which is hazardous to plants and animals. This might hamper environmental sustainability and lead to problems and environmentalists might take certain actions to avoid this usage. Chemicals that might cause problems to a certain extent are chlorine disinfectants, UV disinfectants, electrochemical coagulation, and various others.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR in the coming years due to the high demand for clean water in cities and industries. Major Key players are investing in the production of chemicals for treating water. China to be the epic center for manufacturing, the huge potential is predicted for Water Treatment Chemicals Market in recent years. Low cost of production and high demand is expected to flourish the Water Treatment Chemicals Market.
