The major factors driving the growth of the market globally include increasing demand for water and its treatment, and stringent environmental regulations. In addition, the increasing concern of governments in developing countries for providing safe drinking water to their citizens is expected to drive the growth of the water treatment chemicals market. The health problems due to unavailability of safe drinking water have been one of the major reasons for the outbreak of diseases in developing countries. Contaminated water is home to microorganisms, which cause several diseases including diarrhea, cholera, and hepatitis. Every year, these diseases lead to 5 million deaths globally. This has increased the concern of governments to improve the safety level of water. Several developing countries have been using chlorination for disinfection of public water, since a long time. However, the advent of new diseases, such as Cryptosporidium and Legionella pnemophilla that are resistant to chlorine, has been compelling the governments in countries, such as China and South Africa to use newer technologies for tackling the health hazards caused by contaminated or unsafe water.
