Legislative Pressures to Mould Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market in Western Europe, Notes Frost & Sullivan

October 30, 2012

LONDON, Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Intensifying environmental awareness as well as stricter regulations related to discharge processes and disposal are driving growth in the Western Europe industrial sludge treatment chemicals market.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.chemicals.frost.com), Analysis of the Industrial Sludge Treatment Chemicals Market in Western Europe, finds that the market was valued at EUR 635.2 million in 2011 and estimates this to reach EUR808.8 million in 2018. This research covers chemicals utilised in four of the most important market segments that include conditioning and stabilisation treatment processes, digestion treatment processes, thickening treatment processes as well as dewatering and drying treatment processes.

“To successfully compete, market participants will need to continuously deliver innovative and highly effective products,” noted Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Anna Jarosik. “They will also need to focus on technological improvements that will minimise the overall volumes of wastewater and sludge, thereby making the environment safer and less polluted.”

Improvements in product performance and formulation in order to meet the highest environmental standards will become critical competitive factors. Such enhancements will be in line with heightened quality and healthcare requirements.

“Industrial sludge treatment chemicals manufacturers are expected to continuously improve their chemical solutions and as a result the industrial sludge treatment processes. There is a growing industrial need for more cost-effective and energy-saving processes and solutions,” stated Jarosik. “Such demands will stem from pressures exerted by environment-friendly legislation.”

Market participants should consider strategic partnerships with industry participants and/or established equipment manufacturers and engineering procurement and construction (EPC) companies to consolidate their position and explore growth opportunities in main as well as more specific niche markets.
