Lack of water management, one of the most influential problems faced by humans presently, has been directly impacting public health, because of the pervasive wastage of land, surface water, as well as groundwater, which are among the most basic sustainability needs. The increasing water stress level across the globe is causing deterioration of freshwater resources in terms of quantity and quality. As a result, contaminated water and poor sanitation conditions cause the transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid, and polio.

According to World Health Organisation, by 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.

The demand for fresh and clean water is continuously increasing, due the increasing population and establishment of residence. Around 70% of earth is covered with water, however only ~1% is fresh water. Thus, it raises a need to recycle wastewater in order to meet the growing need, especially in water-stressed areas.

A paradigm shift is now required in water management all over the world not only to prevent the further damage to sensitive ecosystems but also for the effective management of wastewater. Water and wastewater treatment chemicals are playing an important role in providing clean water and preventing from various diseases.

The use of traditional water treatment methods is declining over time, owing to the rapid industrial development in various sectors. To meet the emerging demand for water management, major water industry players are emphasising on developing innovative treatment products for local as well as the global sites. Zero liquids discharge technologies, resource recovery, and smart water solutions are certain innovations which are going to abruptly revolutionise the water treatment industry. The integration of emerging technologies with traditional water treatment infrastructures is expected to help various public and private stakeholders to further enhance their capabilities for effective wastewater treatment and recovery of waste energy resources.

Rising awareness among people, increasing population in developing economies, agricultural intensification, and climate change are some of the major factors affecting the growth of water treatment chemicals, globally. Water plays an important role in the industrial sector, as it is used in fabricating, processing, washing, diluting, cooling, transporting a product, and for sanitation needs within the manufacturing facilities.

Additionally, rising need for sustainable water management solutions is increasing the growth of water and wastewater treatment chemicals.
