Polymers which are soluble in water under certain fixed conditions are called water soluble polymers. The market is driven by growing application areas of water soluble polymers. Rising demand for green packaging using polyvinyl alcohol along with the development of bio-based acrylamide, have contributed to the growth of the market.

Polyacrylamide is the largest segment in the market due to its increasing usage in wastewater treatment, mining and Pulp & paper industry. Water treatment is the major application sector in the market, because stringent government regulations concerning discharge of waste water in the water bodies have been introduced. Asia Pacific leads the water soluble polymers market due to growing demand of drinking / industrial water with population growth. Growth in North America is supported by growing pharmaceutical and food & beverage sectors. Europe has significant growth due to increasing demand from detergents and personal care coupled with oil & gas activities.

The market is seeing a high competition and is fragmented among major players, some of them being: E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Akzo Nobel N.V., Arkema S.A., among many others. The study provides information on global water soluble polymers market size and market trends along with the factors and parameters impacting it in both short and long term. The study ensures a 360° view, bringing out the complete key insights of the industry with better understanding of the companies.
