Water Soluble Polymers Market Regional Insights

Rising demand from the wastewater treatment sector is anticipated to be the main driver in the Asia Pacific area. Due to growing environmental concerns and expenditures from corporate and governmental parties to stop ecological harm, the municipal and industrial wastewater treatment industry will increase. Water-soluble polymers are produced and consumed in large quantities in China. Given that the wastewater treatment sector is anticipated to grow over the course of the forecast period, there will likely be an increase in the demand for polymers like polyacrylamide in the region. Polyacrylamide is a common flocculating and coagulating agent in wastewater treatment.

Due to the increased demand from the oil and gas industry, North America is anticipated to see considerable expansion. The oil and gas industry's growing need for these materials is primarily driven by activities including drilling, well completion, production, and improved oil recovery.

The increased customizability offered by these polymers over conventional injection fluids used in improved oil recovery is expected to lead to a rise in demand from the oil and gas sector, which is expected to fuel water soluble polymers market expansion.

Water Soluble Polymers Market Dynamics

Water Soluble Polymers Market Driver

Rising Use in the Oil & Gas Industry

  • In the oil and gas business, especially in the upstream and midstream segments, water-soluble polymers are widely used. It is employed in drilling, well completion, cementing, the production of oil and gas wells, the use of diverting agents, well stimulation, the management of deposit formation, and the treatment of oil and oil-contaminated systems. 
  • Oil companies mainly rely on chemically enhanced oil recovery and hydraulic fracturing processes to reach maximum production levels and meet escalating energy demand.

Water Soluble Polymers Market Restraints

Environmental Effects of Synthetic Water-Soluble Polymer

  • High molecular weight polyacrylamide is frequently used as a flocculant in the treatment of wastewater and as a viscosity modifier in improved oil recovery. Overuse and poor management might contaminate the area's water supplies, harming the flora and animals of the area. 
  • High molecular weight polymers are also less damaging to the environment. However, during the process, these polymers are subjected to a particularly severe mechanical, chemical, and thermal environment. Due to this aspect, high molecular weight materials deteriorate and disintegrate, changing their physical and chemical properties and impeding water soluble polymers market expansion overall.
