Water Treatment Pharmaceutical Industry Analysis
The global water treatment pharmaceutical market is becoming more and more stable. The variety of pharmaceuticals has reached maturity. The overall development speed has entered a stable period, and the development speed is higher than that of the traditional economy. In 2019, the global average annual growth rates of the market scale of sewage / wastewater treatment and desalination treatment were 6.00% and 5.60%, respectively. The following is an analysis of the water treatment pharmaceutical industry.
The global water shortage is becoming more serious and people are paying more attention to the environment. The global demand for water treatment chemicals continues to increase. According to the analysis data of the water treatment pharmaceutical industry, from 2016 to 2019, the global water treatment pharmaceutical market size was US $ 23.730 billion, US $ 25.270 billion, and US $ 26.850 billion, and it is estimated that it will reach US $ 38.240 billion by 2021.
The development of water treatment chemicals in China has developed with the introduction of modern water treatment technology. The development time is about 30 years later than that of developed countries, but the development speed is very fast, and an independent research and industrialization system has now been formed. So far, China has more than 100 water treatment products. Various water treatment chemicals have basically met domestic demand from output to quality, and some products have been exported.
In 2017, the output of water treatment chemicals in China has reached more than 700,000 tons, with sales of 8.2 billion yuan. Adding activated carbon and coagulant should be 1.7 million tons and 13.1 billion yuan, respectively. Analysis of the water treatment pharmaceutical industry points out that modern domestic industries, such as steel plants, power plants, petrochemical plants, fertilizer plants, and paper mills, are inseparable from the treatment of cooling water, process water, and sewage, bringing a thriving water treatment industry. The market has promoted the rapid development of the water treatment pharmaceutical industry. The output of organophosphorus and polyacrylamide has occupied the first place in the world, and a large number of exports have good international competitiveness.
In 2018, China has completed 26 desalination projects above the 10,000-ton level, with a water production scale of over 800,000 tons / day. Tianjin, Hebei, Liaoning, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Shandong, Guangdong, and Hainan have completed a total of 926,905 tons / day of desalination projects. Desalination projects are distributed in nine provinces and cities along the coast, mainly in coastal cities and islands with severe water shortages.
In 2019, China's total water resources are 2,726.69 billion cubic meters, and the total surface water resources are 2,626.39 billion cubic meters. China's water resources are inherently inadequate. Freshwater reserves are only 6% of the world's total. China's per capita renewable water resources are only 25% of the global average. Among them, Sichuan, Hunan, and Guangdong have the highest per capita water resources, which are 3052.88 cubic meters, 2373.56 cubic meters, 2131.24 cubic meters.
In 2020, the country identified seven strategic emerging industries and promulgated the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" for development. The analysis of the water treatment pharmaceutical industry pointed out that the plan identified the water treatment industry as one of the seven strategic emerging industries for energy conservation and environmental protection, and emphasized the importance of the water treatment industry. In the water treatment industry, government planning focuses on the development and industrialization of water treatment equipment, the development of new solutions, and the development of related service industries. These new plans will jointly advance the development of China's water treatment chemical industry towards special products, solutions and field services.
At present, the total sales of various water treatment chemicals around the world is about 36 billion US dollars. The total output value of water treatment chemicals in China is far from that of developed countries. The water treatment pharmaceutical industry is already a relatively mature specialty chemical industry in the United States, Europe and Japan and other countries and regions. It is a special product with the widest application and the largest amount of water treatment chemicals in the field of water treatment technology in the world today.
Overall, the overall development of China's water treatment pharmaceutical industry is very good. Both the government and ordinary people have begun to attach importance to water resources and environmental protection, and public welfare undertakings are also ongoing. Now, the water supply standards are being gradually raised, which provides a broad space for development for the water industry. This concludes the analysis of the water treatment pharmaceutical industry.
