The global water soluble polymer market size is expected to reach USD 39,477 Million by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The growth of the market is attributed to increasing demand for water soluble polymers from water treatment units. Moreover, growing shale gas industry due to enhanced oil recovery is driving the market growth.

Water Soluble Polymer Market Key Takeaways

Water-soluble polymers are polymers that easily gets dissolved in water and modify physical properties of the aqueous system in order to perform specific functions such as cleaning, strengthening, and thickening. These polymers are actively used in water treatments systems, paper making, detergents, and other household products. Casein, PVA, and polyacrylamide are some example of water-based polymers.

There are two types of water-soluble polymers, namely, natural water-soluble polymers and synthetic water-soluble polymers. Guar gum, gelatin, xanthan gum, and pectin are some of the naturally occurring water-soluble polymers.

Market Drivers, Restraints, Trends, and Opportunities

  • Growing demand from the medical industry for drug delivery, tissue engineering, and artificial organ development are driving the market growth.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic led to supply chain disruptions, which disrupted the market growth.
  • Stringent government regulations on polymer usage can restrain the growth of the market.
  • Increasing demand for water-soluble polymer from emerging economies is anticipated to create major opportunities for the industry players in the water soluble polymers market.
  • Rising demand for bio-based acrylamide and growing application of this polymer in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to provide numerous opportunities for the manufacturers in the coming years.
