Many companies are working on war footing to gain best results from their R&D. Honest endeavours are being made to improve the quality and performance of these cleansing chemicals so that these will be suitable for use across the globe for all the end user industries in different verticals.

Similarly, Coagulants are used almost as much as flocculants by the waste water treatment industries, to neutralise the electric charge on solid particles & colloidal impurities. This segment in wastewater chemicals in predicted to cross the turnover of USD 1436 Million by 2021, at a consistently increasing growth rate, as far as Europe is concerned. According to the latest market study released by the prominent market research and consulting firm, the wastewater treatment chemicals market in Europe is projected to cross USD 4690 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of close to 5% over the forecast period.
