Legislative Pressures Create Growth Opportunities in CEE Municipal Water and Wastewater Treatment Chemicals Market
The Central and Eastern (CEE) European municipal water and wastewater treatment chemicals market offers growth opportunities for a range of chemicals. Demand will be propelled by intensifying legislative pressure from the European Union (EU), supported by government funding, aimed at promoting environment-friendly, water- and energy-saving technologies. “Rising market needs, as well as financial support, mainly from the EU, will create exciting growth potential for manufacturers of municipal water and wastewater treatment chemicals,” notes the analyst of this research. “Higher growth is expected in the wastewater treatment chemicals, rather than the water treatment chemicals segment, due to increasing investments into modernising and optimising wastewater treatment process, plants, overall pipelines and their capacities.”
Water- and energy-saving solutions related to the use of more effective chemicals as well as technologies may reduce the amounts of water and wastewater treatment chemicals used. However, this will not result in reduced prices or lower revenues. Instead, multifunctional chemicals, advanced equipment and technologies will facilitate growth, due to enhanced efficiency and productivity. Currently, all types of chemicals used in the municipal water and wastewater treatment segments are required to meet specific certifications regarding safety, hygiene, and quality. In general, such requirements are likely to become more stringent and encourage further improvements in all chemicals used by municipal water and wastewater treatment plants. The objective here will be to achieve environmentally-friendly, effective chemicals that are safe for human health. “Population growth and urbanisation has resulted in heightened water consumption, water re-use and further quality improvements even while wastewater production has been rising rapidly each year,” remarks the analyst. “This has created greater need for both water and wastewater treatment and thus for chemicals such as pH conditioners, coagulants, flocculants, disinfectants and biocides plus scale and corrosion inhibiting agents, antifoam as well as colour, odour and taste control chemicals.”
Market Participants Should Develop Novel, Cost-effective, Environmentally-Friendly Solutions
To maximise on the market’s growth potential, manufacturers will have to tackle issues related to price sensitivity and product differentiation. To tackle price-sensitivity, the focus will have to be on developing cost-effective chemicals that support overall cost reduction. Product differentiation can be achieved by developing new and more effective water and wastewater treatment chemicals that improve treatment efficiency, decrease overall costs, and promote environment-friendly practices.
“A significant trend has been investments into R&D to develop novel water and wastewater treatment chemicals,” comments the analyst. “Additionally, there have been efforts to improve product performance and composition so as to meet higher environmental standards, quality benchmarks and health care considerations.”
