Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market Size worth $7.5 billion by 2024

  • Published Date: November 2, 2017

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market size is set to surpass $7.5 billion by 2024.  Increasing number of manufacturing and chemical companies owing to industrial development and rising environmental concerns in these nations will further boost the market demand in the coming years.

Industrial sludge treatment chemicals market is highly driven by the rising end-user industries. Developing and developed countries have huge number of industries to support their trade and economy. Growing industrialization in these countries will lead to increasing manufacturing units which will further lead to huge waste and sludge generation. Most of the end-user industries generate and release numerous amounts of waste in the form of sludge.

Industrial wastewater generates large amounts of sludge, which contains extracellular polymeric substances and huge biomass quantities. Extensive amount of water leads to high handling and transportation cost which makes treatment plants eat up over half of the operational budget. High costs associated with sludge treatment will result in restricted industrial sludge treatment chemicals market growth.
