The US water treatment chemical market will grow 4.5 percent annually through 2007. Increased water recycling by industry will drive demand for corrosion inhibitors, coagulants and flocculants, oxidizers and biocides, and chelating agents. Cooling water will remain the top application while wastewater is among the fastest growing.
This study analyzes the $3.1 billion US water treatment chemicals industry. It presents historical demand data for 1992, 1997 and 2002 and forecasts to 2007 and 2012 by product (e.g., corrosion inhibitors, oxidizers and biocides, coagulants and flocculants, pH adjusters and softeners, defoamers, chelating agents, fluoridation chemicals); by application (e.g., cooling water, supply water, wastewater); and by industrial, municipal and other market.
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 38 leading competitors including Ondeo Nalco, GE Betz, Arch Chemicals, Ashland Specialty Chemical, Buckman Laboratories, ChemTreat, Cytec Industries, Great Lakes Chemical, Kemira, Occidental Chemical, and Rohm and Haas.
