Saudi Arabia Water Treatment Chemicals Market 2028 – Trends, Opportunities & Forecast

Saudi Arabia Water Treatment Chemicals market is increasing owing to the demand for safe and clean water in the region. According to TechSci Research report, “Saudi Arabia Water Treatment Chemicals Market – By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2028”, the Saudi Arabia Water Treatment Chemicals Market stood at USD 919.28 million in 2022 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.48% during the forecast period. Water treatment chemicals or substances are used to suspend solids, viruses, fungi, algae, bacteria, and minerals during the water treatment process. Public water systems frequently use a series of water treatment steps that include coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection.

The Important Elements of Saudi Arabia Water Treatment Chemicals Market

The increasing demand for saline water treatment to meet the ever-increasing demand for water in the country is expected to drive the growth of the water treatment chemicals market in the country. Water desalination in Saudi Arabia has doubled since the past decade to reach around 2.2 billion cubic meters from 1.1 billion cubic meters per year, this can be ascribed to a major upgrade in existing plants and the introduction of new technologies. In major cities of the country, the desalinated water share in total water consumption is pretty high, particularly in cities such as Makkah, Jeddah, and Taif where almost the majority of their drinking water comes from nearby desalination plants.

The government of Saudi Arabia is ramping up the water treatment chemical production capacity of the country by building and maintaining the infrastructure to manufacture fine chemicals as there are various end-use industries that have a demand for water treatment chemicals. For example, in the petrochemical industry, water treatment is carried out at the time of refining crude oil and other crude oil products. Water treatment chemicals are also needed in the power industry, hence the demand for water treatment chemicals in Saudi Arabia is expected to increase during the forecast period.

The water treatment industry is playing a crucial role in providing clean water and avoiding various water-related diseases. With the advanced boiler water treatment chemicals and other related chemicals, water from the sea, polluted rivers, and wastewater effluents can now be made safe for human consumption.

Saudi Arabia has approximately 15 % of the world’s petroleum proved reserves and ranks as one the largest net exporters of petroleum. Saudi Arabia has the second-largest proven oil reserves in the world. The major factors attributed to the growth of this segment include the increased use of these chemicals in municipal and wastewater treatment in various industries such as oil and gas, power, and petrochemical industries. Coagulation and flocculation are mostly used in the tank of chemical products of oil and gas plants. The coagulation process accelerates the sedimentation process.

Water treatment is essential as the demand for clean water increases, which is accomplished using different chemicals and processes. Desalination is a process used to purify water sources of salt, minerals, and other impurities to produce fresh water for use in domestic and industrial applications. Around 75% of the world’s desalination plants are in the Middle East, mainly in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Kuwait. Whereas out of the top 10 desalination plants in the world, five plants are situated in Saudi Arabia only.

Lack of precipitation, global warming, rising temperatures, and rapid industrialization in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have led to a release of a huge amount of wastewater which pollutes the environment if not treated correctly. Therefore, the growing environmental concerns are projected to boost the establishment of wastewater treatment plants which can lead to a flow in demand for water treatment chemicals, driving the market’s growth during the forecast period.
