This report gives a detailed description of the global water soluble polymers market based on volume share (kilo tons) and revenue (USD million) for the period 2013 to 2019.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2015 -- Water soluble polymers are formulations of mineral polymers that are highly soluble in water. Water soluble polymers are utilized for thickening, gelling, dispersion, flocculation, coagulation, friction reduction, rheology modification and as chemical additives among others. These polymers can be derived from different raw material sources of natural as well as synthetic origin. Based on the type of raw material used, water soluble polymers can be classified as synthetic water soluble polymers, natural water soluble polymers and semi-synthetic water soluble polymers. Synthetic water soluble polymers were the dominant types accounting for more than half of the global water soluble polymers market.

The global water soluble polymers market is expected to be driven by the growth in water treatment applications assisted by rising pressure from regulatory authorities for wastewater treatment of municipal and industrial wastes over harmful environmental effects of the contaminants released with water. Furthermore, rising demand from petroleum applications, due to rising shale oil drilling activities, is anticipated to fuel the market for water soluble polymers. However, volatile feedstock prices of synthetic water soluble polymers and competing uses of feedstock for natural water soluble polymers are expected to hinder market growth.
Polyacrylamide emerged as the largest consumed water soluble polymer accounting for more than 24.4% of the total water soluble polymers formulations consumed in 2012. It is also expected to be the fastest growing market owing to its versatility and high demand from water treatment and petroleum applications. Guar gum is another major product segment and is expected to grow at an estimated CAGR of 5.5%, from 2013 to 2019. Guar gum is primarily produced in Asia Pacific which accounts for about 90% of the global guar gum production. India and Pakistan are the leading producers of guar seeds and gum. Guar gum prices declined in 2013 due to over supplies and fall in the currency value of Indian Rupee (INR) against USD affecting the revenues. The supply demand gap is expected to balance out by late 2014 to early 2015 while the INR slide has stabilized at an average of INR 60 for 1 USD. High volume demand for gum is expected to help sustain an average revenue growth over the forecast period. Other water soluble polymers are expected to lose their market volume share to polyacrylamide over the forecast period.

Natural water soluble polymers such as casein and gelatin are high value markets because of their high prices. These are usually derived from dairy products, plant extracts and animal fats. These markets are facing a slower growth because of their substitutability with lower priced water soluble polymers. Additionally, stringent regulations for use in applications such as food and pharmaceutical might further hinder the market growth rate. Furthermore, competing uses for feedstock sources such as dairy products and animal fats as foods sometimes creates procurement difficulties due to supply shortage.
Water treatment dominated the application market and accounted for more than 20% of the total market in 2012. Detergents & household products are anticipated to grow at CAGR of 5.6% from 2013 to 2019 owing to increasing penetration of FMCG companies especially in the high GDP BRICS countries. Furthermore, the growing shale gas drilling activities is one of the major factors driving the demand for water soluble polymers in petroleum applications. Paper making is another key market for water soluble polymers. Other water soluble polymer applications include food, pharmaceuticals, mining, agriculture, etc.
Asia Pacific continued dominating the water soluble polymers market and accounted for more than 40% of the total volume in 2012. Asia Pacific along with being the largest market is also the fastest growing market for water soluble polymers. Mature markets of Europe and North America are expected to witness an average growth rate over the next six years. Europe was the second largest market and expected to remain so till 2019.
