The industry is expected to expand at a rapid pace due to the increasing application
of water soluble polymers in water treatment. Environmental regulations pertaining to
wastewater treatment of industrial as well as urban sewage water are expected to be major
drivers for the water soluble polymers market in the years to come.

Water soluble polymers can be of three types based on the raw material types as
synthetic, natural and semi-synthetic. Synthetic water soluble polymers were the dominant
segment with 60% of the global demand in 2012. Natural water soluble polymers and
semi-synthetic water soluble polymers accounted for the remaining 40% of the volume in

Key water soluble polymers include polyacrylamide, guar gum, polyvinyl alcohol,
casein, gelatin, polyacrylic acid and others including polysaccharides, PVP, PEG,
polyamines and quaternary ammonium compounds. Globally, polyacrylamide is the largest
product segment of water soluble polymers in terms of volume demand. It is also expected
to be the fastest growing product type at an estimated CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast
period from 2013 to 2019.

The water treatment industry was the largest customer for the water soluble polymers
industry in 2012 and accounted for a 23.7% share of the total volume generated by the
latter. Increasing petroleum and shale gas extraction activities across the globe are
expected to drive the consumption of water soluble polymers over the next few years. Water
soluble polymers are used as a friction reducer and wastewater treating agent in petroleum

Other key end-user industries for water soluble polymers include paper making,
detergent & household products, agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals, mining, etc. The
detergent & household products formed the second largest end-user of water soluble
polymers with 13.6% share in total volume consumed by the industry in 2012. Paper making,
agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals and mining are other key applications that had a
significant market share in 2012.
