Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global industrial sludge treatment chemicals market to grow at a CAGR of 5.36% during the period 2016-2020.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global industrial sludge treatment chemicals market for 2016-2020. The report also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the five prominent vendors operating in the market.
Sludge is a mixture of liquids and solids generated during the treatment of wastewater. It contains water along with different organic materials, chemicals, pathogens, and diverse microorganisms. The sludge produced by different industries comprise pollutants (heavy metals, pathogens, and organic pollutants) and compounds of agricultural value (organic matter, phosphorus, potassium, nitrogen, calcium, magnesium, and sulfur). The treatment of sludge depends on the pollution load of the treated water and the technical characteristics of the sludge.
According to the report, one of the main drivers of this market is the increase in demand for disinfectants. Inadequate disposal of industrial sludge results in the contamination of land and water bodies, leading to the need for sludge and wastewater treatment, thereby driving the demand for sludge treatment chemicals. Disinfectants, which account for a significant share in the sludge treatment chemical industry, are extensively used in metal and mining, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, and oil and gas industries to destroy microorganisms. The demand for disinfection is growth significantly from APAC, especially Japan, India, Korea, Indonesia, and China.
Further, the report states that the concerns regarding residue management is one of the challenges that the market is facing. The residues created by wastewater treatment should be disposed or managed appropriately to prevent environmental degradation. Environmental agencies in many countries are investing significantly in the development of processes to manage sludge treatment residues.
