The global sludge treatment chemicals market was valued at US $ 6.8 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach US $ 10.2 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.2% during the period forecast.
The sludge generated during the wastewater treatment process usually contains a large amount of water, microorganisms and chemical constituents. In addition, sludge also contains harmful agents, such as heavy metals, which harm the environment and cause serious health problems when directly exposed. Therefore, sludge must be treated before it is disposed of in the environment. In addition, the reuse of treated sludge in agricultural processes increases the demand for sludge treatment.
Different chemicals are used at different stages of sludge treatment. Industries such as food and beverage, personal care, automotive, and paper and pulp are major consumers of these chemicals due to the large production of sludge during manufacturing.
Growing industrialization, growing environmental concerns, and growing need for sludge disposal across the globe are the key factors driving the growth of the global sludge treatment chemicals market. However, factors like high cost of sludge treatment process in conjunction with the development of water treatment process to reduce discharged sludge have hampered the market growth.

In terms of process type, the market has been segmented into coagulants, flocculants, and disinfectants. Coagulants and flocculants are used in sludge treatment processes for solids removal, sludge thickening, solids dewatering and many more. Coagulants occupied more than half of the market and are expected to maintain their lead during the forecast period.
Water disinfection means the elimination, deactivation or killing of pathogenic microorganisms. Microorganisms are destroyed or deactivated, causing growth and reproduction to stop. Depending on the type of sludge, the process should be selected.
In terms of application, the market has been segmented into Personal Care & amp; chemicals, metal processing, petroleum & amp; gas, food and amp; drinks, and Pulp & amp; paper.
The food & amp; The beverage industry segment held the highest market share. In addition, the treatment of sludge generated by food & amp; The beverage industry is essential, because BOD and COD have public health and environmental obligations. Moreover, the metal processing industry is expected to be the fastest growing application segment during the forecast period.
Geographically, North America is said to have a slightly higher share than Asia Pacific due to the mature industrial sludge treatment chemicals market in this region. The rapid increase in population and the scarcity of pure, clean drinking water will also propel the demand for sludge treatment chemicals in Asia Pacific. In the forecast period, the European industrial sludge treatment chemicals market will show slower growth than above two regions.
