Flotation Reagents Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Development Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 – 2027

Report ID: GMI4082

Summary Methodology

Flotation Reagents Market size will experience considerable growth in the coming years owing to rising product demand in the water treatment industry. Flotation reagents are a range of chemical agents which are widely applicable for controlling the flotation process during the material separation process. In Asia Pacific, water treatment industry is likely to grow significantly due to rapidly growing industrialization coupled with improving regulations to protect environment by treating wastewater.

According to the UN-Water, an inter-agency collaboration of various UN agencies has estimated that 70% of industrial wastewater is discarded into waterways without treating it in underdeveloped nations across the globe. According to Asia Development Bank (ADB), the figure is around 80% for Asia Pacific. Currently, China is principally experiencing the disastrous effects of wastewater, with a number of villages observing the rise of cancer patients. Therefore, economies including China, India, South Korea, Australia, Japan and Thailand are forming new environmental policies focusing on wastewater treatment. These developments will help make a notable impact on the overall flotation reagents market size in the coming years.

The untreated sludge resulting from metal-based flocculants used in wastewater treatment can result in environmental damages which may hinder the flotation reagents market size in the coming years. However, the organic flocculants in the market will provide an opportunity to replace inorganic products and grow steadily for water treatment applications.

Flotation reagents market is divided based on the type of chemical agents used which mainly includes collectors, dispersant, frothers, flocculants, modifying agents and others. Collectors and flocculants are likely to grow considerably over the forecast period. Collectors are mainly used in the mining industry for processing mineral ores particularly copper, lead, zinc, silver, gold, and nickel. Collectors can be generally classified on the basis of their ionic charge: nonionic, anionic, or cationic. Collectors mainly change the mineral’s hydrophilicity and aggregate its hydrophobicity, necessary for bubble attachments. It results in more floatable minerals, thus, lowering the mineral separation time. Collectors flotation reagents type are globally available and some of the mainly used collectors are dithiophosphate, xanthate, and thiocarbamide.

Flocculants flotation reagents comprises of natural or synthetic polymers with different polar groups. They are largely used in wastewater treatment for solids removal, water clarification, lime softening, sludge thickening, and solids dewatering. Thus, the growing product use is likely to fuel the flotation reagents market size in the upcoming years.

Based on end-user, flotation reagents market is bifurcated into mining & drilling, oil & gas, wastewater treatment, and others. Wastewater treatment segment is expected to grow significantly with growing flocculants flotation reagents demand for treating industrial and residential wastewater in the coming years. Mining & drilling industry is another key end-user industry which require flotation reagents for refining and processing Sulphur, non-Sulphur and other mineral ores, including coal. In oil & gas industry, product is used to separate the sediments and unwanted particles during the oil drilling operations. Rising product demand from the aforementioned end-user industry will significantly aid the market size in the coming years.

Asia Pacific flotation reagents market is expected to grow significantly with rising industrialization in the emerging economies including India, China, and Thailand. Also, there is lack of proper sewage and industrial waste treatment infrastructure in North America and European countries which has triggered pollution of freshwater resources and has also accelerated potable water scarcity in these region. Asia Pacific nations such as India, Australia, and China are endowed with large mineral resources, making it a possible mining industry hub in the coming years. In fact, China is the largest global producer of gold. As a result, product demand is expected to rise from the mining industry segment which in turn will boost the floatation reagents market size by 2025.
