Water soluble polymers are majorly used for water treatment, and are also finding acceptance in food processing, paper, enhanced oil & natural gas recovery, surface coating, mineral processing, detergents, textiles, personal care products, pharmaceuticals and petroleum production. The stringent environmental norms & regulations for water treatment and increased demand for crude oil are other factors contributing to the increasing market of water soluble polymers.

Asia-Pacific is the global leader in the consumption of water soluble polymers and this dominance is expected to continue till 2019. China is the key market in the region, consuming more than half of the demand for water soluble polymers, followed by Japan, and India where consumption is growing steadily. Increase in the consumption of water soluble polymers for polyacrylamide, guar gum, polyvinyl alcohol, casein, gelatin and polyacrylic acid have been observed in Asia-Pacific due to continued industrialization and rise in the manufacturing sector of the region. The continuous growth and innovation, along with industry consolidations, are projected to ascertain a bright future for the industry.

Polyacrylamide is one of the major types of water soluble polymers market. It is majorly used in increasing the viscosity of water or to encourage flocculation of particles present in water. It is a synthetic water soluble polymer, thus can be tailored to fit into a broad range of applications. It is also used in enhanced oil recovery, where high viscosity aqueous solutions can be injected to improve the economics of conventional water flooding.
