Municipal water treatment - Major market for water treatment chemicals
As the population rises globally, the demand for treated water also increases. The consumption for both municipal and industrial purposes is increasing rapidly, as there is a shortage of water resources. Municipalities treat water to meet stringent government regulations. The main function performed by WTCs in municipal water treatment are coagulation and flocculation, anti-foaming, chelation, and disinfection processes. WTCs with a wide variety of properties are used at different stages and operating conditions in the municipal water treatment to mitigate impurities in the water. Increased use in the municipal water treatment in the next five years is expected to further drive the WTCs market.
