[Online Quarterly Update] India Wastewater Treatment Chemicals demand grew at a CAGR of 7.21% during 2015-2019 and is anticipated to achieve a healthy growth rate during the forecast period. Rapid industrialization and urbanization leading to rising water contamination levels has led to increased installations of sewage treatment plants and river cleaning initiatives by the Government of India. With phenomenal rise in India’s population and its industrial landscape, the volume of discharged wastewater has shown an alarming rise since past few years. The acute scarcity of water leaves no other option among municipalities but to promote effective reutilisation of the wastewater discharged from industries. Moreover, tightening of Central Pollution Control Board norms and awareness among industrialists to discharge treated wastewater to ensure continuity of their businesses will ensure double digit growth of the Wastewater treatment chemicals market in the forecast period.
At present, there are numerous water and wastewater treatment chemical products such as corrosion & scale inhibitors, antiscalants, coagulants & flocculants, biocides, disinfectants, pH adjusters and others. Among all, corrosion & scale inhibitors and anti-scalants dominate the class of Wastewater Treatment Chemicals used by several industries such as sugar, pharma, fertilizer, paper & pulp, and oil & gas industry. State and central government are also making intensive investments in setting up water treatment plants to ensure ‘Zero Liquid Discharge’, a concept where the entire industrial and municipal waste water can be reused after recycling without discharging it into any river. This would further escalate the Wastewater treatment chemicals demand in the coming years. 
Municipal sector accounts for more than 30% in Wastewater Treatment Chemicals market followed by Power plants which are the second biggest consumers of Water Treatment Chemicals. Regionally, Western India holds the largest market share in the India Wastewater Treatment Chemicals market, owing to continuous rise in the number of industrial projects tentative to commission or already commissioned in the last five years. 
Outbreak of novel coronavirus has highlighted the urgent need for water and wastewater management practices in a country like India where over 163 million people don’t have access to safe drinking water. As the country is keenly evaluating better hygiene practices to control the spread of this contagious virus, the Wastewater Treatment Chemicals industry is expected to witness record breaking surge in demand this year. Moreover, increased awareness of hygiene causing people to wash hands multiple times in a day has further heightened India’s water consumption by 1.5 times. With increasing government initiatives for providing access to safe drinking water backed by constant focus on the ZLD scheme would boost the Wastewater Treatment Chemicals demand in the long run.
