Market Overview

Clarifiers are the settling tanks used for removal of solids suspended particulates present in water through sedimentation. This is done to enhance the quality of water to meet quality standards for various uses of water. Water clarifiers are machine-operated water treatment tanks in which the sludge or concentrated impurities is discharged from the bottom of the tank and the layer of dirt or froth on the surface of the water is called as scum.

A package of chemical-injection releases various categories of chemicals into the water in order to optimize the water treatment process. These chemicals are basically coagulation and flocculation reagents such as ferric sulfate and polyelectrolytes, these partials club together with the preexisting particle and form denser particles called flocs. And due to high-density flocs settle more quickly and are stable in nature, which facilitate the easy and efficient separation of the solid particle by clarifiers.

Owing to its low operation and maintenance cost and optimum output this arrangement is used for various liquid-solid separations in various industries, such as paper and pulp industry, food and beverage industry, oil and gas industry, and chemical and fertilizer. The clarifiers are generally used in municipal wastewater treatment to reduce suspended solid particles and biological oxygen demand (BOD). There are several benefits of halogenated water treatment chemicals. They enhance the efficiency of skim tanks, hydro cyclones, filters, centrifuges etc. Halogenated water treatment chemicals have various types of applications, such as in water processing, corrosion inhibition, irrigation water, oxygen scavenging, drinking water, antifoaming and scale inhibition among others.

Market Dynamics

The primary factor responsible for driving the global water clarifiers market is strict regulations pertaining to conservation of water and water quality. Other than this increasingly stringent regulations, particularly in the areas of water reuse and wastage will also affect the global water clarifiers market positively. Also, declining freshwater resources have compelled the management for the use of water treatment arrangement, which will also boost the market for water clarifiers.

However, the high cost of clarifiers and availability of alternative such as chemicals are expected to restrain the market growth of water clarifiers. Municipal and industrial regulations, rapid industrialization and use of fresh water in various activities are factors impacting the global water clarifiers market directly. Municipal and industrial regulations also promote awareness programs for consumers to minimize water wastage. Fresh water can be used in various industrial applications (eg. in pulp & paper manufacturing, metal & mining, power, semiconductors, oil & gas and textiles) and domestic applications (eg. washing, cooking, etc.).

Regional Outlook

North America holds a comparatively high market share, being a profitable market for water clarifiers. North America is followed by Europe. However, Asia Pacific is expected to have high growth over the forecast period owing to the growing demand for pure and fresh water. Rest of the world market is estimated to account for a relatively small share of the water clarifiers. Also, depletion of freshwater resources across the globe can act as an opportunity for the global water clarifiers market.
