Market Overview:

The global industrial water softeners market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for treated water from various industries, such as heating plant, water treatment, and others. In addition, the growing awareness about the benefits of using softened water is also contributing to the growth of this market. Salt based water softeners are expected to dominate the global industrial water softeners market during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. This can be attributed to their high efficiency and low maintenance cost as compared with salt free water softeners.

Global Industrial Water Softeners Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Industrial water softeners are devices used to soften water by removing minerals such as calcium and magnesium. The importance of industrial water softeners is that they protect equipment from corrosion, reduce energy consumption by equipment, and extend the life of pipes, valves, and other components in the system.

Salt Based Water Softeners:

Water softeners are used to reduce the hardness of water. The most common way of doing this is by using a salt based solution. There are different types of water softeners available in the market, which vary in terms of their application and mechanism for working.

Salt Free Water Softeners:

Water softeners are used to reduce the hardness of water. The most common way to do this is by using a chemical called a salt, which reacts with minerals in the water and makes them less soluble so that they precipitate (form a solid). There are two types of salts - ionic and molecular. Ionic salts have one or more positive charges per molecule whereas molecular ones have zero charge per molecule.

Application Insights:

Based on the application, the global market has been segmented into heating plant, water treatment plant and others. The water treatment segment dominated the global industry in terms of revenue in 2017. This is attributed to growing demand for industrial wastewater softeners from various industries such as food & beverage, pulp & paper and metal. In addition, increasing environmental concerns regarding disposal of waste products have resulted in increased demand for efficient wastewater treatment solutions globally which is further driving growth.

The other application segment includes applications such as mining and construction where industrial grade salt free or modified chloride based softeners are used owing to their low operating costs and environmentally safe nature without compromising on performance requirements required by end-use industries or plants that require highly purified water with reduced levels of impurities including hardness minerals etc., making it suitable for consumption purposes without any additional treatments other than filtration at source resulting in high product penetration across these sectors globally over the forecast period thereby contributing significantly towards overall industry growth over the next few years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has a large number of industries that use water for heating purposes, which will drive demand for industrial water softeners. China, India, Japan and South Korea are some of the major countries where demand is high owing to increasing population coupled with rising living standards.

The Middle East & Africa region is anticipated to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period owing to rapid development in various sectors including oil & gas, mining and manufacturing across several countries including Saudi Arabia, UAE and Egypt among others. Increasing investments in these sectors are anticipated to boost product adoption across numerous applications such as heating plant or cooling system within plants or facilities; whereas other applications include chemical processing industry within refineries/petrochemical plants along with wastewater treatment facilities (wastewater reuse).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the metal and mining industries for water softening to reduce scaling and corrosion.
  • Growing popularity of water softeners in households to improve the quality of water for domestic use.
  • Rising concerns over hard water-related problems such as scale build-up, corrosion, and appliance malfunctions in various industrial sectors.
  • Technological advancements that have led to the development of more efficient and compact industrial water softeners units 5
