Freedonia Study: Water Treatment Chemicals (3072)

Quote from article
A new report from The Freedonia Group Inc., has released a report called ‘Water Treatment Chemicals’. The report states that demand for water treatment chemicals in the US is forecast to rise 3.2%/y to US$ 6.7 billion in 2017. These gains will reflect not only healthy growth in oil, gas and mining industries and a rebound in manufacturing output, but also the increased use of scale control and other water treatment chemical products that help protect companies’ investments in water treatment equipment. The report also states that A shift in product mix favouring more efficient and less hazardous chemicals that have higher prices will also promote growth in market value. Additionally, chemical demand will be supported by efforts to recycle water, as water treated for reuse usually needs greater conditioning than fresh supply water. The energy and mining markets are predicted to show the fastest growth through 2017.
