Global Boiler Water Treatment Chemicals Market: Information by Type (Oxygen Scavengers, Sludge Conditioners, Alkalinity Builders), Conditioning Method (External, Internal), End-Use Industry (Power, Oil & Gas, Chemicals & Petrochemical), Region—Forecast till 2023. A boiler is a closed vessel in which water is converted into steam with the application of heat under pressure. The water used to create steam in a boiler often contains a varying number of different impurities. These impurities are dissolved solids, dissolved gases, and suspended matter, which may result in major problems such as scaling or deposition, corrosion, and boiler water carry-on. Treating the water that circulates in the boiler is important for proper functioning. Untreated water is likely to form scales on the heat transfer surfaces when the water is heated. This results in the drastic reduction in heat transfer capabilities, which further leads to overheating, tube failure, and loss of efficiency. Scaling also reduces the flow area, increasing the pressure drop in the boiler tubes and piping, which reduces the steam volume and potential equipment failure. These challenges can be offset by using boiler water treatment chemicals.

The global demand for boiler water treatment chemicals is primarily driven by the growing necessity for power generation. The increasing rate of power consumption across the world can be attributed to economic output. The industrial sector consumes vast amounts of electricity; thus, rapid industrialization across the globe is likely to drive the demand for boiler water treatment chemicals during the forecast period. Use of high-pressure boilers in the food and beverage industry for processes such as cleaning, processing, distillation, and fermentation also drive the demand for these chemicals. In the textile industry, textile processing is heavily dependent on the use of boilers, which further fuels the demand for treatment chemicals.  However, these chemicals are non-volatile in nature, resulting in unwanted deposit formation. This leads to reduced boiler thermal efficiency and unscheduled boiler shutdowns for tube repair and deposit removal. This may pose a challenge to market growth. Nevertheless, market players are focusing on strategic developments such as mergers, acquisitions, and product launches. For instance, in September 2017, Kurita Water Industries Ltd. launched a new version of CETAMINE, a water treatment chemical for intermediate and high-pressure boilers, for the Japanese market.
