Key Products and Initiatives Driving Growth in the Region

This study investigates the market for water and wastewater treatment chemicals in the GCC countries, identifying the key chemical types and the end-user industries for the same. It examines the revenue and volume shipment for the six countries across each water treatment chemical type and across each end-user industry, providing a detailed outlook, along with the market size, revenue forecast until 2017 as well as market drivers and restraints. The total market's competitive structure in terms of companies and their presence is also included. This study is significant considering the shortage in water resources in the GCC and initiatives of local governments to conserve and reuse water towards building a sustainable future.

Executive Summary

• The total industrial water and wastewater treatment chemicals market in the Gulf Corporation Council (GCC) countries was worth $X million in 2012 and is expected to grow to $X million by 2017.
• The refining industry emerged the largest end user in terms of revenue generation for the total market, followed by oil production and power generation. Revenue from the oil refining, oil production, and power generation industries is expected to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of X%, X%, and X% respectively, from 2012 to 2017.
• The metals industry is the smallest end user in terms of revenue generation for the total market, with revenue from this industry expected to witness a CAGR of X% from 2012 to 2017.
• With regard to revenue by chemical type, corrosion and scale inhibitors are the biggest segments, followed by biocides and disinfectants, and these segments are expected to grow at CAGRs of X% and X% respectively from 2012 to 2017.
• pH conditioning chemicals are the smallest segment in terms of revenue generation; however, they are likely to have an encouraging CAGR of X% from 2012 to 2017.
• The supply of speciality water treatment chemicals is dominated by multinational service companies and formulators, considering the complexity of manufacturing such products. These companies have established their presence locally or operate through local distributors.
• Commodity-type water and wastewater treatment chemicals are manufactured locally, considering the simplicity in operations and are supplied either directly or indirectly though local distributors.
• Due to their long standing presence, multinational chemical suppliers make up a large portion of the overall sales as compared to the locally established ones for water and wastewater treatment chemicals in the GCC.
• Speciality water and wastewater treatment chemicals are expected to witness a steady increase in the overall sales through formulators and service companies, as consumers seek increased utilisation with the goal of improving operational efficiency.
• Demand for water and wastewater treatment chemicals is expected to grow in all GCC countries over the forecast period, driven by developments in the oil and gas, power generation, chemicals and petrochemical industries. Increasing regulations being imposed by various legislative bodies with respect to water conservation will also drive market growth.
• Use of alternative technologies such as membrane systems and ultraviolet disinfection, instead of chemicals is still in the developing stage globally and is not expected to affect the consumption patterns of these chemicals in GCC countries over the forecast period.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Kuwait and Oman will witness the fastest growth in the GCC industrial water and wastewater treatment chemicals market, driven by developments in their refining and power generation industries.
2. Joint ventures with local participants will provide ready access to the GCC industrial water and wastewater treatment chemicals market, thereby reducing time to develop market presence.
3. As environmental awareness grows in the GCC countries, industries will look to use better quality products in a move to align themselves with international standards.
4. Water scarcity in the GCC countries will drive industrial water reuse schemes as well as desalination requirements, all of which are heavily reliant on treatment chemicals.
5. Establishing long-term relationships with customers will ensure stable demand for chemicals and contract renewals.
6. Industrial water and wastewater treatment chemical consumers will continue to seek after-sales services that are provided through local distributors and formulators. This will increase revenue generation opportunities for product suppliers.
7. As the GCC countries looks to further diversify into downstream products and chemicals, locally established chemical manufacturers and formulators will devise strategies to increase their market share, supported by the local governments, specifically for the speciality water and wastewater treatment chemicals market that are currently dominated by multinational companies.

Market Overview—Definitions and Scope of Study

• This research service presents current and future trends of the GCC industrial water and wastewater treatment chemicals market from 2011 to 2017, with 2012 as the base year.
• The study focuses on the following most commonly used, specific groups of industrial water and wastewater treatment chemicals:
opH conditioners
oCoagulants
oFlocculants
oCorrosion and Scale Inhibitors
oBiocides and Disinfectants
oOther types of chemicals (*Other types include softeners, antifoaming, defoaming, colour control, and odour control)

• In the GCC countries, there are limited applications for water treatment chemicals besides for caustic soda, sulphuric acid, and hydrochloric acid, which are extensively used in the oil and gas, petrochemicals, and chemical industries.
• The types of water to be treated can be classified as follows:
oRaw water
oProcess water
oEffluent water

• Primary treatment of raw water, as it is commonly known, is carried out to remove organic and inorganic solids, impurities like dirt and other suspended particles, and oxides of metal and colloidal substances.
• This process is a combination of both physical and chemical methods. This is done to ensure that the quality of the water obtained from places like municipalities and fresh water sources are up to required standards.
• Process water treatment, or cooling water treatment, refers to the water that is used in the internal and external circuits of various process systems such as cooling and heating.

• There is a significant change in the temperature, pressure, and pH level of the water that is used for process water treatment.
• Scaling and corrosion are very common in these process loops because of the corrosive reaction between water and metal surfaces repeatedly.
• Biocides, corrosion and scale inhibitors, and certain inorganic commodity chemicals are most commonly used to treat water used during this phase.
• Effluent water treatment is carried out to ensure that the water released from the industries to the environment does not contain heavy metals, metal oxides, and other impurities which can be harmful. Processing also takes place to prepare the water for reuse. Coagulants, flocculants, and activated carbon are chemicals most frequently used.
