Overview of the municipal water and wastewater treatment chemicals market in Europe

The market research analyst at Technavio predicts that the municipal water and wastewater treatment chemicals market in Europe to grow at a CAGR of nearly 5% until the end of 2021. One of the primary factors driving this market’s growth is the rising concerns for the environment. The mounting environmental concerns are due to the harmful greenhouse gas emissions and pollutions associated with the water and wastewater treatment chemicals, which has deteriorated the water quality significantly. Furthermore, the health problems and diseases caused by the release of the untreated water into the water reservoirs has a severe impact on all living organisms. It also makes the water unfit for drinking, household needs, and recreational purposes. This is expected to lead to the increasing adoption of municipal water and wastewater treatment chemicals for the implementation of professional water and wastewater treatment solutions during the predicted period.

One of the latest trends that will gain traction in the market is the increasing investments in aging water and wastewater treatment facilities. Europe houses one of the most advanced setups for the treatment of municipal water and wastewater, where a larger number of the population is connected to the public sewerage systems. Therefore, municipal water and wastewater treatment pipelines, plants, and equipment are aging rapidly. The increasing need to modernize the system drives the growth of the market. The corrosive nature of the compounds in the water and wastewater are severely damaging the equipment, along with the rise in population and urbanization have

Overview of the global bromine market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global bromine market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 6% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rise in the demand for plastics. Flame retardant chemicals are added to plastics and polymers with the purpose of delaying combustion in case of fire. Plastics are widely used in packaging; construction; electrical and electronics items; automotive and many other industries. The most commonly used plastics include polyethylene (PP), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polystyrene and engineering plastics. PP and polyurethane (PUR) are the most widely used plastic materials. This increasing demand for plastics across regions in various end-user industries is driving the market for flame retardant chemicals which is, in turn, will propel the global bromine market during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the growing use of bromine and its derivatives as mercury reducing agents. Bromine derivatives are used in the reduction of mercury emissions from smokestacks of coal-fired power plants. During the combustion of coal, mercury gets released, which is a major concern for public health. This has compelled the governments to implement regulations for the reduction of mercury emission. This rising health concerns coupled with stringent government regulations will augment growth in the global bromine market in the coming years.

Overview of the global polyphenylene sulfide market

According to Technavio’s analysts, the global polyphenylene sulfide market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and post a CAGR of close to 10% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for PPS filter bags in power plants will drive the growth prospects for the global polyphenylene sulfide market until the end of 2021. The governments of many countries have mandated the usage of filter bags in power plants to reduce the harmful effects of greenhouse gases and control their emission. As a result, the demand for PPS increases as it is used in the filters required in coal-fired power plants and dust chamber filters in incinerators. Also, since PPS has cost advantages over PTFE, polyamides, and aramid, they are increasingly preferred over other fibers. Furthermore, it has been observed that PPS filter bags have a longer service life in comparison to glass fiber filter bags.

The growing focus on the production of bio-based engineering plastics will drive the growth prospects for the global polyphenylene sulfide market for the next four years. Several key players are adopting bio-based plastics to minimize the harmful effects of plastics on the environment, which will accelerate the rate of revenue generation in the global polyphenylene sulfide market. Evonik already provides bio-based polyamides under the brand name Vestamid Terra.
