Water Soluble Polymers Market Overview:

Global Water Soluble Polymers Market is estimated to reach $61 billion by 2025; growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2017 to 2025. Water soluble polymers are either natural or synthetic organic substances which dissolve, disperse, or swell in water & so alter the physical properties of aqueous systems undergoing thickening, gellation, or emulsification/stabilization. The growing wastewater treatment processes in several industrial activities around the world is a major factor driving the application of water soluble polymers in many industries. Water soluble polymers with its numerous functions like gelling, flocculating, thickening, rheology modifying & stabilizing find usage in widespread applications such as water treatment, paper, food processing, surface coating, enhanced oil & natural gas recovery, mineral processing, detergents, pharmaceuticals, textiles, petroleum production, and personal care products. With these widespread applications, it is anticipated to drive the growth of the water soluble polymers market over the forecasted period.

Growing demand for water treatment, growing consumption in petroleum exploration activities, increasing consumption among many industries like textiles, food & beverages, personal care, and mining, and increased demand in emerging countries are the factors driving the growth of the water-soluble polymers market. However, the adverse health & environmental impact of synthetic polymers, and unstable raw material prices may hinder the growth of the market. Moreover, introduction of bio-based acrylamide due to growing environmental concerns might provide with several growth opportunities in the forecasted years.
