Water-Soluble Polymer Market Introduction

Global Water-Soluble Polymer Market is predicted to value over USD 51.9 billion by 2027 end and grow at a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period of 2020 to 2027. 
Water-soluble polymers are compounds that showcase changes in physical properties on exposing them to aqueous systems. Water-soluble polymers have a vast number of industry-based applications ranging from the food industry to the coating industry. Polyvinyl alcohol is a water-soluble polymer which is highly used to strengthen papers and textile yarn, in particular, making it oil and grease resilient. Casein, another water-soluble polymer, is used as a thickener, texture stabilizer, emulsifier in cream-based soups, pudding, sherbet, custards, etc.

Water-Soluble Polymer Market Overview 
Type-wise, the global water-soluble market is bifurcated into polyacrylamide & copolymers, guar gum & derivatives, casein, polyvinyl alcohol, gelatin and polyacrylic acid & copolymers. Guar gum, which is primarily used in the paper industry for paper pulp hydration is a segment with a lot of potentials to grow globally. It will especially grow in developing economies due to its low price and easy availability. The polyacrylamide & copolymers segment is growing consistently and the primary reasons for this growth are its characteristics like non-toxic nature, good thermal stability, high miscibility and good solubility. 

Application-wise, the market is segmented into water treatment, detergents & household products, paper making and petroleum. Water treatment industry is the primary user of water-soluble polymers due to a huge requirement for potable water worldwide and this is a major shareholder of the global market. 
The household & detergent products use water-soluble polymer as an anti-redeposition agent and considering the demand these products have worldwide, this segment is predicted to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. 

Consistent growth of end-user industries like food and beverage industry and water treatment industry in the U.S and Canada and the growing exploration of natural gas in the U.S has accelerated the market growth in this region. 
Asia Pacific region is witnessing exponential growth in the manufacturing sector due to rapid industrialization and implementing regulation favourable to the industry thus generating a huge amount of wastewater. This situation has increased the demand for wastewater treatment in the region which is predicted to show significant growth during the forecast period.
As the middle east is losing its freshwater resources, it has been of paramount importance to keep these resources waste-free increasing the demand of water treatment plants and this will boost the market even further.
