Major Players

Players leading the global scale inhibitors market include DowDuPont (US), Kemira Oyj (Finland), BASF SE (Germany), American Water Chemicals, Inc. (US), Solenis (US), Ecolab (US), Arkema SA (France), Clariant (Switzerland), SUEZ (France), and BWA Water Additives (US), among others. 

The rapidly growing water treatment industry drives the market demand, substantially led by the water scarcity and stringent norms against wastewater disposal in the industrial sector. Furthermore, the increased usages of hydraulic fracturing in the OG industry has led to increasing the growth of the market, raising the demand for water treatment chemicals.

On the other hand, price volatility and the demand-supply gap in raw material required for the production of cast elastomers are impeding the growth of the market. Nevertheless, stringent regulations against Industrial wastewater disposal would support market growth throughout the review period, increasing the usages of scale inhibitors and creating lucrative opportunities for the market players.

Global Scale Inhibitors Market – Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific dominates the global Scale Inhibitors Market, witnessing a huge demand from the power generation and metal processing industry. The OG sector in the region is driving the market growth, phenomenally heading with the increasing investments in OG production extraction activities to meet the rising demand for petroleum products, fuel, and energy. 

Europe stands second in the global scale inhibitors market owing to the demand from power and wastewater treatment sectors. Increasing regulations against wastewater discharge drive the regional market growth significantly, leading to the adoption of processes to enable industrial plants to reuse and recycle water.

Besides, the rising demand for scale inhibitors in various applications such as oil gas and energy generation fosters a considerable market share. The European scale inhibitors market valuation is projected to reach USD 493.6 MN by 2023, posting 3.21% CAGR during the forecast period.

The scale inhibitors market is brisk in North America due to the rising consumption of these materials in industries such as power, mining, OG, petrochemicals, and paper mills, among others. However, the market banks heavily on increasing exploration activities. Substantial investments in oil reserves exploration boost the scale inhibitors market, directly.

Significant rise in shale gas extraction using hydraulic fracturing technology is further resulting in creating a substantial need for water. Rapid industrialization is also creating a vast space for the market to infiltrate further, spurring the demand for fuel-based energy. The US is the largest market in the region, which is estimated to create a huge revenue pocket.
