The global Polyacrylamide Market is expected to reach USD 29.65 Billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. The rise of the oil recovery sectors has expanded over time, which has led to an increase in demand for polyacrylamides. Investment in the water treatment industry has increased, which has further driven the global polyacrylamide market.


Market Overview

An organic polymer derived from acrylamide subunits is known as polyacrylamide. N'-methylenebisacrylamide is used to create polyacrylamide, which typically has a straightforward linear-chain structure. However, it may be altered to create branched, highly structured, and cross-linked variations. It is a white, water-soluble solid polymer of acrylamide that is used as a coagulant, flocculant, and filtration aid in various applications. These applications are determined by the polymer's physical form and its ionic type, such as anionic, non-ionic, cationic, and other. It also contains acrylic resin, which has the special ability of polyacrylamides to dissolve in water. Due to its quick disintegration and great efficiency, this has applications in the treatment of industrial and municipal wastewater. Polyacrylamides are being used more and more often in a wide range of applications globally. Enhanced oil recovery demand is driving up demand for polyacrylamide, which is helping the market expand. Additionally, it is anticipated to increase the effectiveness of oil recovery, which is anticipated to increase demand throughout the projection period. The development of wet shale gas and shale gas production in particular are anticipated to positively affect the expansion of the market. Additionally, increased investment in the field of water treatment has increased demand for polyacrylamides. Additionally, polyacrylamide is used in the polyacrylamide market as colour removal agents and additions for cell separation in biotechnological broths, creating market potential. The regulatory agencies' increased focus on water treatment management, such as wastewater treatment facilities and drinking water, particularly in emerging nations, is projected to benefit the expansion of the worldwide polyacrylamide market. Polyacrylamides are also utilised to stabilise soil aggregates and to stop soil erosion. Furrow irrigation and sprinkler irrigation are further uses for this polymer in rain-fed crops. Additionally, polyacrylamide is frequently used as a finishing agent or sizing agent for cloth post-treatment in the textile industry. Due to its anti-wrinkle, softness, and anti-mold protective layer properties as well as its excellent moisture absorption properties, this wide spectrum of textile chemicals is used in the textile sector and aids in lowering the breakage rate of spun yarn. The fabric can acquire great resistance to static electricity and fire thanks to additional polyacrylamide. The product composed of polyacrylamide gives a high level of vividness and excellent adherence. It also serves as a stabiliser for non-silicon polymers. Although the supply and production of polyacrylamide by manufacturing facilities have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic due to restrictions placed by various countries, the cost of polyacrylamide transportation has increased as a result, which has caused delays on major carriers around the world. Due to the closing of international borders and the decline in the number of commercial ships, a similar pattern was seen in all major geographic areas. By 2021, though, it's anticipated that the polyacrylamide business will return to normal.
