Flocculation is the process in which individual particles of a suspension form aggregates. It is used to describe the action of polymeric materials which form bridges between individual particles. Flocculants consist of various molecular weight anionic, non-ionic and cationic polymers. They are used to increase the efficiency of settling, filtration, clarification and centrifugation operations. They carry active groups with a charge which will counterbalance the charge of the particles. Flocculants adsorb on particles and cause destabilization either by bridging or charge neutralization.
Globally, increasing number of waste water treatment projects and rising demand for clean and potable water in emerging economies are the prime growth drivers of flocculants market. However, stringent regulations on use of chemicals in water treatment are the key restraint for flocculants market. The major growth opportunity for the flocculants market is the Increasing demand from power generation industry.
