Growing demand from water treatment application supported by increasing pressure from regulatory bodies for wastewater treatment is expected to fuel the global demand for water soluble polymers. Additionally increasing demand from petroleum applications attributed to rising shale oil drilling activities is expected to further fuel the demand for water soluble polymers. However, volatile feedstock prices for synthetic water soluble polymers and competing uses for feedstock of natural water soluble polymers are expected to hinder market growth of water soluble polymers.
