Capacity Expansion in South Africa Drives Demand

This research service titled ‘chemicals usage in the various utilities in sub-Saharan Africa’ looks at the water treatment chemicals demand by power utilities in South Africa, with a regional overview of Nigeria, Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, and Uganda. Market growth data and forecast growth rates, as well as detailed drivers, restraints, and challenges impacting the market are provided. ESKOM is the major end-user in South Africa, and its capacity expansion program is expected to drive growth in the market during the forecast period 2014–2018. Nigeria will be a major source of revenue in the long term, as capacity expansion and refurbishment are expected to follow the recently completed privatisation of the power industry.

Executive Summary

-The market for Water Treatment Chemicals (WTC) within power utilities is concentrated in South Africa, which generates two-thirds of the power on the continent. In addition, the prevalence of thermal power compounds the demand for chemicals due to the large volumes of water required to drive its processes.
-Thermal power stations (coal-fired and nuclear) are key end users within the South African market for the industrial water treatment chemicals market due to the stringent specifications required for their process water. At a total estimated cost of $ /MW, the following chemical categories contribute up to % of the water treatment chemicals cost for thermal power stations and $ million annually to the WTC market:
-Coagulants and flocculants
-Scaling and corrosion control chemicals
-Biocides
-pH adjustment chemicals
-Chemicals for resin regeneration and washing
-Although the overall contribution of power generation to the industrial water treatment chemicals market currently stands at an estimated %, successful commissioning of the Medupi and Kusile power stations starting in 2014—as the first power stations to be built in South Africa in over years—is projected to boost market growth by % in the next years.
