Polyacrylamide Market Forecasts to 2028 – Global Analysis By Product (PAM-CA, APAM), Application (Shale Gas, Soil Conditioner), End User (Cosmetics, Oil and Gas, Petroleum), Channel (Direct, Distributor) and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Polyacrylamide Market is accounted for $3.58 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $7.03 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period. The rising awareness of wastewater management, growing population and rapid urbanization in the Asian countries and growing demand for enhanced oil recovery are the major factors driving the market growth. However, alternative water treatment technologies and volatility of raw material price is restraining the market growth.
Polyacrylamide, also known as polymerized acrylamide, is formed by the synthesis of acrylamide subunits. Polyacrylamide finds a wide range of applications in water treatment plants and paper manufacturing units. Also, its biocompatibility and protein resistance properties have increased its application in drug delivery and the biomedical field. Polyacrylamides are either synthesized by the cross-linked form or in a single linear chain structure. In the cross-linked form, the monomer is reduced into the simplest form, which makes the material water absorbent. Its properties help to stabilize the soil structure. The presence of polyacrylamides reduces soil erosion and water usage, making the soil favorable for cultivation. The high absorption of water reduces crop damage as the soil dries up quickly in case of heavy rainfall.
Based on end user, the oil & gas segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth as the product improves the oil recovery efficiency. In addition, it is used in drilling muds and fracturing fluid additives. The use of polyacrylamide can adjust the drilling fluidity, carry shale debris, lubricate the drill bit, and control fluid loss.
By geography, North America is going to have high growth during forecast period due to demand for the product by the water treatment application, which accounts for over 50% of the overall demand. Stringent regulatory actions against waste-water disposal, coupled with rising concerns regarding the environment in the region, are expected to drive water treatment activities in the region, which in turn, are likely to have a positive impact on the industry growth.
