Pre COVID-19 Analysis on Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemical Market

The global industrial sludge treatment chemical market forecast will be $7,727.7 million by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.9% and is increasing from $4,885.2 million in 2018, according to a new report published by Research Dive. 

The global industrial sludge treatment chemical market is majorly driven by stringent government regulations for the removal of sludge and growing industrialization in developing countries producing industrial wastes. Industrial sludge burning may affect the surrounding environment and it may create air pollution by releasing effluents into the atmosphere. Furthermore, growth in industrial development in developing countries such as India, China, Australia and other has been resulting in an increase in the generation of sludge, and to treat this sludge heavy amounts of chemical are required. This factor is projected to boost the growth of the industrial sludge treatment chemical market. The cost of the treatment methods and advancements in waste water treatment to produce less quantity of sludge are restraining the market growth.  Technological developments have been made to invent processes that find the nutrient content in the sludge. The fertilizer produced from industrial sludge will substitute agricultural synthetic fertilizers and it is anticipated to increase the industrial sludge treatment chemical market growth over forecast timeframe. 

Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemical Market Segmentation by Type


The market for flocculants has generated a revenue of $996.6 million in 2018 and it is expected to experience noteworthy growth during the forecast timeframe. This is majorly because of the flocculation process that converts dissolved flocs into sediment. The flocculants market is expected to reach $1,684.6 million at a 6.8% CAGR over forecast timeframe. The coagulants market has dominated the industrial sludge treatment chemical market in 2018, and is anticipated to maintain its lead over projected time. This is because coagulants are used for solids dewatering, limestone softening and water clarification processes by neutralizing charge of the effluent particles. The coagulants market is estimated to reach $3,170.5 million by 2026, at a 5.5% CAGR. 

Growing industrialization & urbanization and increasing demands for working environment are giving significant boost to the growth of global industrial sludge treatment chemical market @

The market for dewatering & drying treatment process is expected to account for $1,700.1 million and at a CAGR of 6.6% over projected time. Conditioning & stabilization process treatment held the key market size in 2018 and is estimated to register $3,145.1 million by 2026, at a 5.4% CAGR, owing to wide use of this process for removal of pathogens in the industrial sludge.   

The personal care & chemical sector generated second highest industrial sludge treatment chemical size in 2018 and is expected to experience significant growth during the projected period.   The growth is attributed to expansion of chemical plants and increase in the use of personal care products. The market for personal care & chemical sector is expected to account for $1,074.1 million at a CAGR of 6.5% during forecast period. The food & beverage sector has generated highest industrial sludge treatment chemical market share of 19.1% in 2018. This is owing to food & beverage require huge amount of sludge treatment chemicals to treat heavy quantity of wastewater.  

Asia-Pacific Market Future of Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemical 2026

Asia-Pacific region market generated $1,406.9 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 6.3% and is projected to reach $2,287.4 million by the end of 2026. Development of the industrial sludge treatment chemical market in Asia-Pacific can be attributed to the upsurge in the fast growing countries such as China, Australia, and India. In addition, there is an upsurge in the demand of sludge treatment chemicals from various end use industries such as oil & gas, paper & pulp and sugar industries in this region. This factor is expected to boost the market growth over projected time.
