ALBANY, N.Y., Sept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The products in the polyacrylamide market have grown steadily in commercial significance for synthetic polymer manufacturers. The water-soluble polymer has been extensively studied for its applications in water and wastewater treatment processes, enhanced oil recovery (EOR), mining, and paper industries. Constant advancements in the chemistries of polyacrylamide (PAM) over the years have propelled their demand in these applications.
The number of seawater water desalination units globally has grown on the back of mounting water scarcity. Additionally, brackish water treatment processes have also grown substantially over the recent years. These applications are driving R&D in PAM chemistries to expand their potential applications in water and wastewater treatment. The polyacrylamide market is projected to expand at CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period of 2019–2027.
The extensive utilization of various types of polyacrylamides in oil & gas, mining, paints & coatings, paper & pulp, and water treatment applications is driving the market valuation. The rise in the demand in the urban wastewater treatment industry has propelled the polyacrylamide market.
Key Findings of Polyacrylamide Market Study
Enhanced Oil Recovery in Shale Reservoirs Offers Lucrative Avenues: Worldwide, the need for augmenting the production of oil from refineries has intensified. High-molecular-weight polyacrylamide (PAM) has been extensively utilized in chemically enhanced oil recovery processes. The demand has thrived on back of the growing number of shale reservoirs in recent years. Producers of shale gas are keenly adopting advanced EOR for efficient oil recovery, thereby generating vast revenue streams, finds a study on the polyacrylamide market. Chemical companies catering to the demand have been keen on improving the performance characteristics of products by focusing on rheological behaviors, thermal stability, and core flooding feasibility.
Rise in Applications of PAM in Wastewater Treatment Processes: PAM is widely utilized as a flocculant in wastewater treatment. Manufacturers in the PAM market are intent on improving the mechanical properties and biocompatibility to meet the emerging technologies in water and wastewater treatment. Growing investment of governments in municipal wastewater treatment facilities in developed and emerging economies has been driven by the burgeoning demand for address potable water scarcity. This has boosted the prospects of the polyacrylamide market.
Polyacrylamide Market: Drivers
Relentless focus on improving technologies in wastewater treatment has driven the number of municipal wastewater treatment plants around the world, especially in developed nations. The factor has spurred research on PAM chemistries to be utilized in advanced technologies.
Growing adoption of emerging technologies for augmenting oil production worldwide has generated investments in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods
North America held sizable market share of the global polyacrylamide market in 2019. The valuation of the North America market is projected to touch the US$ 2.5 Bn market by 2027.

Chemicals & Materials Industry battles Tangible Impact of Economic and Cultural changes, Explore Transparency Market Research's award-winning coverage of the global Chemicals & MaterialsIndustry:
Lactic Acid & Polylactic Acid Market - The global lactic acid & polylactic acid market is broadly affected by several factors, including increase in usage of lactic acid and polylactic acid in various end-use industries such as food & beverages, personal care, pharmaceutical, packaging, textile, automobile, electrical & electronics, agriculture, and construction. The rise in the global demand for calcium lactic acid and polylactic acid, and sodium lactic acid and polylactic acid has boosted the usage of lactic acid and polylactic acid. The increase in production and demand for dust control agents is expected to be the primary driver of the global lactic acid & polylactic acid market. The growth of polymer and packaging industries is also propelling the demand for lactic acid and polylactic acid.
Petroleum Jelly Market - Petroleum jelly can be used as a battery terminal compound. It protects battery terminals from corrosion when applied on the cable clamps and battery terminals. The hydrophobic nature of petroleum jelly enables it to act as a barrier to moisture. It also keeps battery terminals free from dirt, thus helping retain battery in good condition. The emergence of electric vehicles to reduce the global carbon footprint and encouragement by governments in the form of incentives for the purchase of e-vehicles are anticipated to boost the demand for batteries, thus propelling the petroleum jelly market during the forecast period.
