In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the rapid urbanization and rise in population as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global water treatment chemicals market:

Rapid urbanization and rise in population

Urbanization in developing countries such as India, China, Brazil, Malaysia, and Mexico has been increasing at a faster pace and paving the way for new industries to grow and technologies to be introduced in these nations. Africa is the fastest growing region with a growth rate of 2.52% annually. Of the entire global population, around 54% live in urban areas. This number is expected to increase during the forecast period. Despite having lower levels of urbanization, Asia is home to 53% of the world’s urban population.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio forspecialty chemicals, “There is a critical need to fulfill the demand for water in the household and industrial applications due to the increased demand for products and services. Water has emerged as an important source to meet the requirements of industries. Not all organizations are well-equipped with the recycling of used water. Thus, there is a rising need for better water treatment technologies in countries.”
