The rapid expansion of water treatment facilities focused on speeding up the natural process of purifying water will increase product demand over the coming ten years. The increasing product utilization in water treatment applications across several industrial verticals, including chemicals, dyeing, tanneries, beverages, and municipal wastewater treatment, will create ample opportunities for the polyacrylamide industry.

Rising focus on minimizing the environmental impact to restrain industry progress

The sifting inclination toward bio-based products, owing to the rising environmental concerns and strict regulatory mandates. The production of acrylamides either involves an enzyme conversion process or chemical synthesis. These processes cause significant environmental impact and thus may hamper industry revenue streams. Besides, the fluctuating prices of raw materials and the volatility in crude oil costs will further decelerate business development.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic had a varied impact on the polyacrylamide industry. The imposition of stringent lockdown measures caused operational halts across major end-use industries, including textile, mining, and petroleum.

However, on the other hand, the susceptibility of SARS COV 2 virus to disinfection significantly pushed the demand for water treatment during the pandemic. Also, several water treatment authorities worked together with the health department to measure the virus levels in wastewater to mitigate the community spread of the COVID-19 infection. In addition, with the lockdown restrictions nearly waived off across several economies and resumed industrial operations, the industry will recover shortly in the coming years.
